The stock market recorded strong gains Tuesday after the Conference Board, a market research firm, reported that consumer confidence made a strong comeback in March.
Consumer confidence declined from October through February, and the unexpectedly upbeat findings resulted in the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbing 260 points, or 2.7%, and the Nasdaq composite gaining 54 points, or 2.8%, on Tuesday.
RV firms, generally, were not invited to the Wall Street party. One company, highline motorhome and horse trailer manufacturer Featherlite, gained 3/16, or 10%, on Tuesday, to close at 2 1/32.
But motorhome builder Rexhall headed in the opposite direction, declining 3/8, or 7%, to close at 4 7/8 on Tuesday.
