Dow transports' 2-day selloff in face of Dow industrials' rally hasn't been seen in nearly 9 years
The Dow Jones Transportation Average tumbled 1.5% in morning trade Thursday, with 19 of its 20 components trading lower, bucking the 137-point, or 0.5%, rally in the Dow Jones Industrial Average , amid sharp declines in airline and railroad stocks. That adds to the Dow transports 1.4% tumble on Wednesday, which also came despite a 41-point, or 0.2%, advance in the Dow industrials. The last time the Dow transports fell at least 1% in back-to-back sessions while the Dow industrials rose for both sessions was in April 2007, or a little less than 6-months before the October 2007 bull market peak. Back then, the Dow transports fell 1.29% on April 26, 2007 and dropped 1.04% on April 27, while the Dow industrials gained 0.1% on both days. The century-old Dow Theory of market analysis suggests that the Dow transports and the Dow industrials need to trend in the same direction for a long-term trend to have staying power. The idea being, if transportation companies aren't delivering what industrial companies are making, it could warn of economic weakness.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Criteo stock plunges on lowered outlook following Apple's iOS update
Shares of ad-retargeting firm Criteo S.A. fell 12% in premarket trading Thursday after the company dramatically lowered its 2018 revenue forecast due to changes Apple Inc. made to its mobile operating system.

The company projects this change to reduce 2018 revenue by 22%, excluding traffic acquisition costs, if the firm can't effectively work within the new iOS landscape. Management had previously projected a 9% to 13% "net negative impact." Criteo said that it had a new solution "under development" but also that "its effectiveness cannot be assessed at this early stage." Criteo shares are down 23% this year, while Apple's stock is up 49%. The S&P 500 Index has gained 19%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
