The major indexes took a step back Monday from their recent gains despite very little in the way of negative news and several encouraging earnings reports.

Coca-Cola (KO, +0.6%) topped Q1 profit and revenue estimates, reporting that global case volumes have returned to 2019's pre-pandemic levels. Harley-Davidson (HOG, +9.7%) also shattered expectations, upgrading 2021 revenue expectations to a 30%-35% bounce off 2020's levels (from 20%-25% previously).
