It was a fifth-straight positive finish for Wall Street today.

The Dow Jones Industrials gained 122 points, while the Nasdaq Composite rose 29.

Shares of Lockheed Martin jumped 2.5%, even though analysts at Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock, citing concerns about the aerospace company’s ability to continue growing free cash flow in 2020 and beyond.

Oil prices eeked out a narrow gain to extend their winning streak to nine sessions. February crude rose 23 cents to settle at $52.59 a barrel. 

The NFL Network next week will broadcast a special about Steve Gleason, the former Saints special-teams ace who has become a champion of various causes -- while confined to a motorized wheelchair due to A-L-S. The “NFL360” special about Gleason, who was recently awarded a congressional gold medal, will air at 7pm Tuesday.
