Week 16 in Brief

U.S. stocks shook off early weakness to end higher Friday supported by better economic data, including faster growth in new home sales. Still, stocks failed to erase weekly declines even as investors brushed off Thursday’s reports that President Joe Biden would propose a large increase on the capital gains tax for the wealthiest Americans.

A busy week of corporate earnings reports also came to a close with a majority of companies seeing better-than-expected results for the quarter, even though they reported mixed guidance for the rest of the year.
