The three major US stock indexes closed mixed on Friday, but the gain or loss was small. A late rebound to the upside saw six out of 11 sectors end the day in the green, with healthcare (up 1.3%) and real estate (up 1.2%) leading the field. All three indices were up about 1% premarket on Monday. What really got markets moving this morning was a report that networking giant Broadcom is in talks to acquire VMware in a deal that could net up to $70 billion for VMware investors.
Ahead of the markets open, Chinese electric vehicle maker Xpeng reported a slightly better-than-expected loss and met sales expectations. The less good news is that gross margins were lower than expected and guidance was low. Shares traded a little over 1% down.
