Stocks were mixed on Tuesday with the SPX and Dow dropping from their records last week, while Nasdaq was up 0.2%. Investors may have taken some profits from the strong performance last week. With the current high valuations, additional news such as second quarter corporate earning, or the passage of more fiscal stimulus, may be required to stimulate another jump in stock prices. Technology stocks dropped as did energy after the fall in oil prices. The 10 year Treasury bill also dropped to 1.369 from 1.434%.

New orders dropped to 62.1 while backlog orders jumped to 65.8. Prices remained high at 79.5 as a result of supply chain constraints, which also affected deliveries at 68.5 (for deliveries, a reading above 50 indicates a slowdown).
The Markit Service PMI was similar with a value of 64.6 in June, down from 70.4 in May. This is still the third highest value recorded, after April and May of this year. Increases were seen in new business and new exports while input costs rose sharply. Growth was fastest in health care with strong performance also in technology , financial and consumer service companies.
