The S&P 500 index generally indicates the overall health of the equity market, meaning the investors keep close track of the index's constituents for cues on the stock market.

The index is comprised of some major companies from different sectors, and some of them include PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG), Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL), Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (NYSE: HPE), Warner Bros Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: WBD), and Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (NASDAQ: HBAN).

Given the stocks' lower trading prices and their significant position in their respective sectors, these stocks are sometimes explored by market participants with a limited budget. The trading prices of these stocks are under US$ 20.

Now, the recent hovering turmoils in the market have left or forced many investors to stay on the sideline. The volatility has made it hard for investors to put their bets into the market.

But, the historical performance of the market showed that after a bearish period, the market has often regained momentum.

The latest CPI data showed that despite the harsh efforts from the Federal Reserve and the global central banks, inflation has remained stubbornly high. This also gives more space to the Federal Reserve to stay on an aggressive track with its monetary plans.

So, let's take a look at some of these S&P 500 stocks and see how they have performed in recent days.

PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG)

The stock of the public utility company, PG&E Corp, closed at US$ 14.73 on Monday, October 24, noting an increase of 1.59 per cent from its previous close. The US$ 35.74 billion market cap natural gas and electric energy company primarily focuses on the transmission and delivering energy.

Bottom line:

The core inflation in September hit its peak level in four decades, despite the continuous tightening of the Fed's monetary plans. Although some policymakers have turned a little dovish in recent days, indicating that the Federal Reserve might slow its rate-hike pace in the coming days.

For instance, Fed Vice Chairwoman Lael Brainard said in a speech last week that it is still unclear how the already higher rates, along with expected jumbo hikes in the coming days, would halt economic growth.

These actions relieved the investors, reflected by the strong gains in all three indices last week. In addition, the earnings season, with some big companies providing positive guidance, has also lifted the investors' spirit.

Earnings from this week would also be important among the investors, with some of the tech mammoths scheduled to announce their latest quarter earnings.

Looking at the performance of the S&P 500 index, it lost over 17 per cent YoY while dropping over 21 per cent in 2022, after the strong gains it attained last week. In the ongoing month through last Friday, October 21, the index has added over four per cent; in the last week, it soared more than two per cent.
