Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN shares are trading higher by 5.9% to $113.21 during Monday's trading session. Shares of several companies in the broader tech, including Amazon, are trading higher amid a fall in treasury yields, which has pressured growth stocks. Major indices are higher as stocks rebound following Friday's selloff after the UK reversed its proposed tax cuts. Better-than-expected quarterly results from Bank of America have also lifted sentiment going into the earnings season.
The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield hit an intraday low of 3.920% Monday morning before rising to around the 3.950% level. When interest rates rise, the value of future cash flows is reduced, which in turn lower the value of the stock.
