(Seeking Alpha) Stocks wrapped up another strong week on a high note, as the Federal Reserve’s new, more tolerant approach to inflation rippled through global markets. The S&P 500 gained for a seventh straight day and closed above 3,500 for the first time, the Nasdaq Composite also finished at a new record high and the Dow Jones moved into positive territory for the year. For the week, the S&P 500 made its largest weekly advance since early July, surging +3.3% higher, while the Dow and Nasdaq rose a respective +2.6% and +3.4%.

Stocks/ETFs on my radar and that interest me: COUP, ADBE, VEEV, SQ and TLT.


Major shakeup for the Dow

Big changes are coming to the Dow Jones Industrial Average due to Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) 4-for-1 stock split, which will significantly reduce the benchmark’s exposure to the information technology sector. Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM), Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) and Raytheon (NYSE:RTX) will be swapped out for (NYSE:CRM), Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and Honeywell (NYSE:HON), marking the biggest reshuffle in seven years. The moves are effective before the open on Monday, while the divisor used to calculate the blue-chip index from the constituents will be changed before then, preventing any distortions.


Amazon expands beyond Whole Foods

Moving further into the grocery sector to challenge Walmart (NYSE:WMT), Kroger (NYSE:KR) and Albertsons (NYSE:ACI), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) opened the first location of its new chain of Fresh grocery stores in Woodland Hills, California. The 35,000-square foot store features Echo Show devices to ask Alexa where certain items are located, and debuted the Dash Cart, a smart grocery cart that tracks shoppers’ items and allows them to skip the checkout line. There will also be a service counter for people to pick up orders from, and they can also complete returns there without having to package their items in boxes.
