Investing.com – Tech stocks rebounded on Tuesday while the S&P and Dow composite were mostly flat after the morning bell.

Tech stocks rallied from a selloff on Monday, when investors switched to retail and banking shares, which are seen as more likely to benefit from proposed corporate tax cuts. The Senate passed the highly anticipated tax bill with 51 to 49 in favor on Saturday. Congress still faces obstacles before the bill can become law and now must create a joint House and Senate bill, which will then be sent to President Donald Trump. Republican leaders are hoping to have the bill passed before Christmas.
