1. Even though the Dow (DIA) snapped its 6-day winning streak on Tuesday, the tech-heavy Nasdaq (QQQ) briefly broke above 10,000 for the first time before closing at a record 9,953.75. The rise was led by a wonderful day for Big Tech in which Amazon (AMZN) and Apple (AAPL) gained 3% and 3.1%, respectively, with each notching all-time highs during the session. Facebook (FB) also advanced 3.1% higher and Netflix (NFLX) rose 3.47%, while Google-parent Alphabet (GOOG) added 0.28%. Read the full report here.

2. There’ll be no breakfast at Tiffany’s (TIF) today after the luxury jeweler reported a 44% drop in same-store sales for Q1. Tiffany’s swung to a net loss of $64.6 million, or $0.53 a share, from earnings of $125 million, or $1.03 a share, a year ago, while revenue fell 45% to $555.5 million. Shares still closed up nearly 2% though after CEO Alessandro Bogliolo confirmed that the $16.2 billion LVMH merger agreed last October had cleared some regulatory hurdles, while sales in China were also picking back up.

Duluth has seen its shares jump 90% in the past month to come within spitting distance of its January highs but still remains down 50% year-to-date. Read more here.
