U.S. financial markets gained traction on Monday as President Trump noted China wants to restart trade talks with the U.S., and that he was optimistic about a deal that would put an end to an escalating dispute that has spooked stocks.
Among the gainers on Monday: The E.W. Scripps Co.
At the Closing Bell, SSP was ahead by 5.53% from Friday, finishing at $12.02. Scripps enjoyed day-long growth, with volume of 490,524 modestly ahead of the average volume of SSP, some 388,420 shares.
The jump essentially negates a Friday dip seen by Scripps, bringing it back to prices seen on Thursday.
Still, SSP remains mired in a six-month downtrend, with two cascading movements seen in early May and again in early August — declines triggered by disappointing earnings.
