In the days’ stock news:


  • Boston Beer Company closed down more than 8% a day after the brewer cut its annual earnings outlook, citing high costs related to supply chain issues and fading growth of its hard seltzer brand Truly.
  • JPMorgan Chase closed down more than 6%, dragging down the major equity averages. The sell-off came after the firm posted its smallest quarterly earnings beat in nearly two years and the lender’s chief financial officer lowered guidance on companywide returns.
