The Dow and S&P 500 closed lower on Tuesday to kick off a holiday-shortened week that has investors focused on mixed earnings reports from major banks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -1.14% shed about 391 points Tuesday, or 1.1%, ending near 33,911, matching its biggest daily percentage drop since Dec. 28, according to a preliminary FactSet reading. The S&P 500 SPX, -0.20% fell 0.2% and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +0.14% rose 0.1%. Morgan Stanley MS, +5.91% reported results that beat analyst expectations for the fourth-quarter, but those of Goldman Sachs GS, -6.44% disappointed. Corporate earnings have been a key focus for investors monitoring signs of a looming U.S. economic recession, which could threaten the modest rally seen in stocks to kick off 2023. The yield on the 10-year Treasury rose 2.4 basis points to 3.543% on Tuesday, down from its one-year high of 4.360% in October, according to Dow Jones Market Data.
