1 min read

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI) was little changed at 1:45 p.m. EST Tuesday, up just 0.1%, as the U.S. grapples with a highly uncertain situation in Washington and a pandemic that remains out of control. The House is planning to vote on the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Wednesday for his role in last week’s riots at the U.S. Capitol just days before the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. Meanwhile, daily deaths attributed to COVID-19 are averaging higher than during the first peak of the pandemic in April.

Turning to individual stocks, shares of Walmart (NYSE: WMT) were up on Tuesday after the retailer announced it was launching a fintech start-up, while shares of tech giant Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) fell despite indications of strong iPhone 12 sales in China.
