(Seeking Alpha) Stocks ended their July rally on a high note as strong quarterly earnings reports from Apple, Amazon and Facebook after the close on Thursday continued to boost tech shares. Apple’s blowout quarter and 4-for-1 stock split sparked shares +10.5% higher to an all-time high $425, Facebook rallied +7% and Amazon advanced +3.7%, while Google parent Alphabet fell -3% after posting better than expected earnings but also its first-ever quarterly revenue decline. Optimism also perked up as D.C. lawmakers said they would meet on Saturday to discuss the latest virus stimulus package after bickering for most of the week. For the month, the S&P rose +5.5%, the Nasdaq climbed +6.8% and the Dow added +2.3%.
