GE disclosed Friday that Chief Executive John Flannery bought 60,000 GE shares on Nov. 15 at a price of $18.27, implying a cost of $1,096,200.

On Nov. 15, the stock traded in a range of $17.50 to $18.38.

U.S. stocks close lower as tax reform uncertainties weigh; GE extends losses
U.S. stocks retreated Tuesday, with all three main indexes closing lower, as uncertainties over whether the Trump administration will be able to deliver sweeping tax reforms weighed on investors' confidence. Analysts had largely credited anticipation over imminent corporate tax cuts for fueling much of the market's record-setting rally this year. Shares of General Electric Co. also extended losses, slumping 5.9%, in the wake of disappointment over the company's restructuring plan that included slashing dividends. The S&P 500 fell 5 points, or 0.2%, to close at 2,578 while the Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 30 points, or 0.1%, to end at 23,409.

Switch shares slide 5% premarket after guidance disappointed investors
Shares of data-center company Switch Inc. fell 5% in premarket trade Tuesday, extending late-session losses from Monday that came after its first quarterly earnings report since going public. Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche said it was a solid quarter, but investors may have been disappointed that the midpoint of its first revenue guidance implies a 0.7% sequential decline in fourth-quarter revenue. "We believe SWCH is being conservative in guidance and would anticipate the company to be toward the high-end of its revenue guidance targets," Fritzsche wrote in a note. "Our struggle with the name continues to be valuation driven." Switch stock is currently trading at about a 4 times premium to the average of data center REITs, she said. Wells Fargo has a market perform rating on the stock. J.P. Morgan analysts agreed that guidance was conservative, and said it was reiterating its overweight rating and $22 stock price target. The stock has gained 18% since going public at $17 and is up about 5% in the last month. The S&P 500 has gained 0.4% in the last month.

Trump's surprise visit to Korean DMZ canceled due to poor weather
A surprise visit by President Donald Trump to the Korean demilitarized zone was called off Wednesday due to bad weather. According to the Associated Press, Trump's helicopter was almost at the DMZ when fog and poor visibility forced the trip to be aborted, and Trump returned to Seoul. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump was disappointed. "I think he's pretty frustrated," she told reporters. The trip to the heavily fortified border with North Korea had not been announced, and in fact, last week the White House explicitly said he would not visit the DMZ. "It's becoming a little bit of a cliché, frankly," one White House official said. Trump is visiting South Korea as part of a 10-day Asian tour, and is scheduled to speak to South Korea's National Assembly later in the day.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Apple's stock rally stands out for the Dow
Investors shouldn't give credit to the surging in shares of Intel Corp. and Microsoft Corp. , after both tech-sector heavyweights reported better-than-expected earnings, for the Dow Jones Industrial Average's gain, they should instead thank Apple Inc.'s stock rally. That's because the combined price gain in Intel and Microsoft shares of $9.13, which would about 63 points to the Dow's price, was being cancelled out by the combined price decline in Chevron Corp. and Merck & Co. Inc. shares after the companies' disappointing results of $9.50, which would shave about 65 points off the Dow. So the Dow's 22-point gain can be attributed to the $5.61, or 3.6%, gain in Apple's stock after reports of strong iPhone X demand, which is adding about 39 points to the Dow.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

AMD's stock tumbles after 'meh' gross margin outlook offsets 'solid' earnings beat
Shares of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. tumbled 9.8% in very active premarket trade, as the chip maker's better-than-expected results and outlook weren't quite good enough to support recent sharp gains. Volume bulged to over over 3.9 million shares a little over an hour before the open, making the stock the most actively traded in the premarket. Stifel Nicolaus analyst Kevin Cassidy said the third-quarter beat was "solid," but gross margin expansion was just "meh." He reiterated his hold rating, saying the lack of sequential gross margin expansion "has us questioning" how customers are valuing AMD's new products, or whether market acceptance is slower than anticipated. Susquehanna's Christopher Rolland kept his rating at neutral, saying he was also disappointed in the gross margin outlook. He said that although the overall fourth-quarter outlook beat expectations, he was disappointed that it indicated AMD's core business was decelerating, and suggested a "marked slowdown" in cryptocurrency-related sales. The stock has run up 26% year to date through Tuesday, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 has rallied 25% and the S&P 500 has gained 15%.

Genuine Parts earnings fall short in 'disappointing' quarter
Shares of car parts retailer Genuine Parts Co. fell about 3% in premarket trade Thursday, after third-quarter profit fell short of estimates and the company lowered profit guidance for the full year. The Atlanta-based company said it had net income of $158.4 million, or $1.08 a share, in the quarter, down from $185.3 million, or $1.24 a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to $1.16, below the FactSet consensus of $1.28. Sales rose to $4.1 billion from $3.9 billion, matching the FactSet consensus. "While we are disappointed with this quarter's results, we are excited about the opportunities ahead and we move forward with a deep sense of urgency as we focus on maximizing shareholder value and positioning the Company for long-term success," Chief Executive Paul Donahue said in a statement. The company raised its full-year sales growth forecast to 4% to 4.5% from a prior 3% to 4%, reflecting revenue to be added through acquisitions. But it lowered its profit outlook to $4.55 to $4.60 a share from a prior $4.70 to $4.75. Shares had gained 2.6% in 2017 through Wednesday, while the S&P 500 has gained 14.4%.

Eli Lilly's stock sinks after disappointing results from late-stage trial of cancer treatment
Shares of Eli Lilly & Co. sank 4.2% in premarket trade Tuesday, after disappointing drug trial results.

Lilly said it would submit the data for presentation at a medical meeting in 2018. "While the outcome is unfortunate for patients with KRAS-mutated, advanced lung cancer, we remain encouraged by the antitumor activity observed with abemaciclib in this form of lung cancer where few clinical advances have been achieved," said Levi Garraway, senior vice president of global development and medical affairs.

Tesla declines as investors await quarterly delivery numbers
Tesla Inc. stock fell more than 1% Monday morning, ahead of the expected release of the electric car maker's quarterly delivery numbers.

Colgate-Palmolive's stock surges as analyst sees 'rare opportunity' to buy
Shares of Colgate-Palmolive Co. ran up 3.4% toward a 2 1/2-month high in midday trade Monday, after the consumer products company was upgraded at Morgan Stanley, citing valuation and expectations of a re-acceleration in sales growth. Analyst Dara Mohsenian raised his rating to overweight from equal weight, and lifted his stock price target to $84 from $75. In a recent survey of investors, Mohsenian said Colgate-Palmolive scored the lowest on sentiment among the mega-cap consumer staples companies covered, which likely stems from three-straight quarters of sales growth disappointments and subpar earnings quality. But Mohsenian said he believes revenue growth will accelerate given easier comparisons and a rebound in emerging markets, at a time when the market is "mispricing" the company's strategic options and competitive position. "We see a rare opportunity to buy a well-positioned business at a valuation level close to structurally less-attractive peers, as [Colgate-Palmolive's] topline slowdown vs. peers has driven stock underperformance," Mohsenian wrote in a note to clients.

Shares of Chesapeake Energy Corp. shot up 7.1% in active afternoon trade Wednesday, putting them on track for their best performance since March 29, as upbeat government crude production data helped propel crude price to a third-straight gain.
