(Reuters) – Wall Street’s main indexes inched higher in choppy trading on Wednesday as investors digested a mixed bag of quarterly earnings reports from major U.S. banks.
Goldman Sachs edged up as strength in its trading business helped quarterly profit surge 94%. Bank of America shed 4.0% after it missed revenue estimates and Wells Fargo declined 4.6% as its profit fell short of forecasts.
The S&P 500 banks index dropped 1.3% as the third-quarter earnings season took off amid improving expectations over the extent of the drop in overall profits for S&P 500 firms. Analysts now expect earnings to fall 18.9% from a year, according to

The Texas Tech Red Raiders need a win to get to even, but right now it could go either way. They and the Iowa State Cyclones are all tied up at 7. Texas Tech’s offense has come from several players so far.
Texas Tech @ No. 24 Iowa State
Current Records: Texas Tech 1-2; Iowa State 2-1
What to Know
The Iowa State Cyclones are 4-1 against the Texas Tech Red Raiders since October of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. Iowa State and Texas Tech will face off in a Big 12 battle at 3:30 p.m. ET at Jack Trice Stadium. Coming off of a win even when the odds were against them, the Cyclones have to be feeling especially confident now that the spread is in their favor.
Iowa State decided to play defense against itself last week,
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets had a rough outing against the Syracuse Orange two weeks ago, but a little bit of home cooking seems to have fixed things right up. The Yellow Jackets had enough points to win and then some against the Louisville Cardinals on Friday, taking their game 46-27. That result was just more of the same for Georgia Tech, who also won the last time these teams played (Oct. 5 of 2018).
QB Jeff Sims had a stellar game for Georgia Tech as he passed for two TDs and 249 yards on 21 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 64 yards. RB Jahmyr Gibbs was in the mix, too, providing Georgia Tech with two touchdowns.
Louisville’s loss came about despite a quality game from QB Macale Cunningham, who passed for two TDs and 229 yards on 33 attempts in addition to rushing
Preliminary results from two independent, phase II clinical trials investigating a new PD-1 (programmed cell death protein 1)-based immune therapy for metastatic cervical cancer suggest potential new treatment options for a disease that currently has limited effective options and disproportionately impacts younger women.
David O’Malley, MD, of The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center — Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC — James), presented the preliminary study results at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Virtual Congress 2020 on Sept. 18. O’Malley was the lead presenter for both trials, which were sponsored by Agenus Inc.
Each study involved more than 150 patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer from cancer treatment centers across the United States and Europe. All patients were previously treated with platinum-based chemotherapy as a first-line therapy. The two independent but consecutive phase II trials tested a new immune-based agent
Our thoughts, feelings, and movements are controlled by billions of neurons talking to each other at trillions of specialized communication points called synapses. In an in-depth study of neurons grown in laboratory petri dishes, National Institutes of Health researchers discovered how the chattiest of some synapses find the energy to support intense conversations thought to underlie learning and memory. Their results, published in Nature Metabolism, suggest that a series of chemical reactions control a feedback loop that senses the need for more energy and replenishes it by recruiting cellular powerplants, called mitochondria, to the synapses. The experiments were performed by researchers in a lab led by Zu-Hang Sheng, Ph.D., at the NIH’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
The team studied synapses that use the neurotransmitter glutamate to communicate. Communication happens when a packet of glutamate is released from presynaptic boutons which are tiny protrusions that stick
The test, called FELUDA—an acronym for FNCAS9 Editor-Limited Uniform Detection Assay—was named after a popular Indian fictional detective. It intends to “address the urgent need for accurate mass testing,” according to a statement from TATA Sons, which manufactured the test.
The kit could be manufactured for self-testing in the future, according to Agarwal, but the prototype being developed currently is only intended for testing in labs.
The FELUDA test follows a similar rapid test kit developed in the US this spring. Both tests use a gene-editing technology called CRISPR to detect the virus in a patient’s RNA. The US Food and Drug
The Virginia Tech Hokies lost to the Duke Blue Devils when the two teams previously met in September of last year, but they didn’t allow Duke the same satisfaction this time around. The Hokies walked away with a 38-31 victory Saturday.
Virginia Tech’s RB Khalil Herbert was on fire, rushing for one TD and 207 yards on 19 carries. Herbert’s longest run was for 60 yards in the fourth quarter. Another playmaker for Virginia Tech was WR Tayvion Robinson, who returned a punt -17 yards to the end zone in the first quarter.
RB Deon Jackson hadn’t helped Duke’s cause all that much against the Virginia Cavaliers last week, but the same can’t be said for this matchup. The losing side was boosted by Jackson, who punched in two rushing touchdowns. That’s the most rushing touchdowns Jackson has had all year.
