Apple's 4-day stock tumble has been biggest drag on Dow industrials
The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday, trying to avoid a three-session skid, will need help from shares of Apple which has been the biggest drag over the past several sessions. Dow component Apple Inc.'s shares have fallen for four straight sessions and has knocked off more than 50 points from the blue-chips gauge over that period, exacting the biggest toll on the price-weighted benchmark of any of its 30 components, according to WSJ Market Data Group. Apple pared its earlier Monday morning drop, but is still off about 1.2%, or $1.84, and looking at falling below $150.05, which would mark its lowest level since Aug. 1. A $1 move in any one of the Dow's components is equal to a 6.89-point swing in the average. In most recent trade, the Dow was trading off 44 points, or 0.3%, at 22,293, the S&P 500 index was down 8 points, or 0.3%, at around 2,494, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was down 0.9% at 6,368, as technology shares were under pressure from Apple's stock decline.

S&P 500 logs 31st closing record of 2017 as stock market bounces in 'relief rally'
U.S. stocks on Monday kicked off the first full week of trading in September with a bang, underlined by the S&P 500 ending at a record, as a raft of meteorological and geopolitical jitters gave way to a re-emergence of appetite for assets perceived as risky. The S&P 500 index closed up 1.1% at 2,488, marking its first record close since Aug. 7, buoyed by gains in the technology and financials sectors. Financials, as gauged by the PowerShares KBW Bank Portfolio and the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF booked their best daily rises since June 9, according to FactSet data. Bank stocks benefited from a resurgence in benchmark Treasury yields, with the 10-year Treasury note rising to 2.13%, compared with 2.05% late Friday. Higher yields support a banks's business models. The Dow Jones Industrial Average , meanwhile, jumped about 260 points, retaking is perch above 22,000, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed up 1.1%. The technology sector has often been viewed as a gauge of Wall Street's tolerance for risk, seeing heavy bidding when investors feel bullish on the market. Monday's bounce was attributed to Hurricane Irma hitting Florida with less force than feared and North Korea refraining from conducting another missile test in the Korean Peninsula, factors that last week had helped push stocks and bonds mostly lower. The relatively milder impact of Hurricane Irma helped insurers, bracing for bigger liabilities from the storm, rally, highlighted by a 3.1% advance in the PowerShares KBW Property & Casualty Insurance Portfolio , a popular exchange-traded fund used to invest in the in the sector. Art Cashin, UBS's director of floor operations, on CNBC described Monday trading as a two-pronged "sigh of relief rally." In corporate news, shares of Apple Inc. bounced 1.8% ahead of what is expected to be the debut of a fresh lineup of iPhones and other products from the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant.
