Amyris Inc Ranked Among Today’s Top Shorts

To close out August’s opening week, the Dow Jones rose 101 points, or 0.3%, the S&P 500 was flat, and the Nasdaq

NDAQ
fell 0.4%. This was all due to a stronger-than-expected jobs report. Investors were awaiting the Labor Department’s jobs report all week, especially after the ADP private payroll survey missed severely on Wednesday. 943,000 jobs were added in July vs. the estimated 845,000, and the unemployment rate came in at 5.4% compared to the estimated 5.7%. As a result, bank stocks and reopening plays surged, while tech shares and stay-at-home names dropped.
