The Dow and S&P started the week on a positive note by recording gains Monday. The former led the charge with a 0.70% rise on the day, while the S&P was up 0.27%. The Nasdaq, meanwhile, gained early but lost later to end the day down 0.48% on Friday’s closing value.
President Joe Biden has seen the Dow and S&P gain more than 10% since he took office in January. The Nasdaq is also significantly up, but by only about half that amount.
Biden’s record on the Dow and S&P compares favorably to Donald Trump’s. He continues, however, to have a deficit on the Nasdaq after 104 days of their presidencies.
Biden has even larger leads on the Dow and S&P when he is compared to Barack Obama at the same stage in their presidencies. He also has a larger deficit on the Nasdaq.
