    Dow industrials pivot higher as P&G, Home Depot outweigh GE's stock slump

    The Dow Jones Industrials Average made a morning break into positive territory, powered by shares of Procter & Gamble Co., Home Depot Inc., and Boeing Co., helping to counter a slide in General Electric's stock. Shares of P&G , Home Depot and Boeing combined to contribute about 25 points--the bulk of the price-weighted blue-chip index's morning gains. Meanwhile, GE's stock was only cutting about 5 points from the Dow, even though it is the benchmark's worst percentage performer. A $1 move in anyone of the Dow's 30 components equates to a 6.89-point swing, making a component's share price more influential than, say, its overall market value. GE was under pressure as it sought to deliver a raft of changes under new CEO John Flannery to revamp its 125-year-old business. Elsewhere, the S&P 500 index was gaining some traction in the green at 2,582. The Nasdaq Composite Index was also edging higher at 6,752. All three benchmarks cut losses from a firmer decline earlier Monday. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Dow buoyed by Wal-Mart but loses ground as P&G's stock falls on Peltz's proxy vote

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated off session highs late Tuesday morning on reports that prominent investor Nelson Peltz of Trian Fund Management lost a closely watched proxy contest to put him on Procter & Gamble Co.'s board. Shares of Dow component P&G were off $1.27, or about 1.4%, cutting about 10 points from the Dow . The price-weighted blue-chip gauge, however, is being buoyed by rally in shares of retail giant Wal-Mart Stores Inc. , which was up, $3.59, or 4.5%, and contributing roughly 25 points to the benchmark's gain after the retailer said announced a $20 billion stock buyback program and detailed its profit and sales outlook. A $1 shift in any one of the Dow's 30 components equates to a 6.89-point swing. At P&G's annual, general meeting on Tuesday, Peltz failed to win a seat on the company's board, according to P&G. Peltz's Trian, however, sees the vote as too close to call. Most recently, the Dow was up 31 points, or 0.1%, at 22,791. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index was trading 2 points, or 0.1%, higher, at 2,547, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was flat at 6,576. All three equity benchmarks touched intraday records on Tuesday but have since pulled back from session highs.

    Dow, S&P 500, Nasdaq jump to fresh intraday records as energy shares rallies

    U.S. stocks climbed on Tuesday at the open as the energy sector rallied and as the International Monetary Fund raised its outlook for global growth, reinforcing optimism about the health of the world economy that has helped drive equities to all-time highs. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 78 points, or 0.4%, at 22,839, the S&P 500 index gained 10 points, or 0.4%, at 2,554, aided by a firm climb in the energy sector, measured by the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 27 points, or 0.4%, to 6,607. All three benchmarks notched intrady records in early Tuesday trade. The IMF said roughly 75% of the world's economy is sharing in the acceleration, a broader recovery than any in a decade. But it warned that a too-quick tapering from quantitative-easing measures by the European Central Bank and China failing to get a handle on its credit growth as factors that could derail economic progress.

Meanwhile, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. shares were leading blue-chip gains, up 2.9%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
