Crude Oil (CL) has bounced back a little bit: Up 0.7%, CL ended the day at $53.40 a barrel. However, CL is still down 12% for the month.

We saw some disappointing earnings today:

3M (MMM) finished 5.7% lower and Pfizer (PFE) dropped -5.0% after worse than expected earnings.

But Apple (APPL) was the big winner today: AAPL reported earnings that were better than expected. The stock is up 2.8% for the day and an additional 1.4% after hours.
