Recent earnings reports from companies are helping stocks stay up today. These reports have been more positive, increasing investor morale and sentiment on Wednesday.

Investors are also hoping for a revival in the financial sector. All of the major banks reported an increase in investment banking during the first quarter of 2024. This is acting as a positive catalyst for the stock market this morning, as investors hope it means good news in future reports.
