Stock Market Today – Bank of America (BAC) Medtronic (MDT) Apple (AAPL) and Honeywell (HON) Report

AAPL stock breaks 500

(Best Syndication News) Nearly every stock exchange in the world was higher Monday, however markets are opening mixed in Asia early Tuesday (see the stock charts below).

Late last week investors were worried that Greek lawmakers would not reach an agreement to cut government spending and raise taxes. But over the weekend the Parliament was able to pass an austerity measure.

Although traders realize that the Greek government still needs to wrangle with the public sector to make the cuts, a crisis has been temporarily averted. Traders returned to studying fundamentals, economic indicators, and income statements for their buying decisions.
