Dow, Nasdaq Up Triple Digits Midday

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) and Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) are both sporting hefty triple-digit leads this afternoon -- the former on track for a fourth-straight win -- while the S&P 500 Index (SPX) is comfortably higher as well.

Wall Street has plenty of earnings reports and economic data to unpack, with home sales rising more than expected for March and median sales prices at their highest level since August. The manufacturing and services purchasing managers' indexes (PMI) for April fell, the former hitting a four-month low and both hinting at slower economic growth.
