Big Tech, Meta Earnings Send Stocks Surging

Facebook parent Meta Platforms (META) was all the rage after earnings, sending Big Tech, and subsequently the broader market, surging for Thursday's trading. Gains even came despite a disappointing gross domestic product (GDP) report, with the Dow and S&P 500 logging their best daily performances since January. Heading into Friday, the indexes are eyeing a breakeven weekly performance.
