    Dow's record rise belies bad market breadth

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average broke through 23,000 for the first time in intraday trade Tuesday, and remained in positive territory in midday trade, but broader market internal readings are decidedly negative. The number of declining stocks outnumbered advancers by a 1,529-to-1,204 score on the NYSE and by a 1,344-to-1,162 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. And declining volume was 58.0% of total volume on the Big Board and 53% of total volume in the Nasdaq. Even within the Dow, 21 of 30 components are declining, but the Dow was still up 18 points. It was up as much as 45.24 points earlier at an all-time intraday high of 23,002.20 earlier. The Dow was up Tuesday, primarily because of the $9.42, or 4.9%, gain in UnitedHealth Group Inc.'s stock after better-than-expected earnings, which added about 65 points to the Dow's price.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Health care stocks spike higher after McCain says 'no' to Graham-Cassidy

John McCain said he could not vote for the Senate bill to repeal major parts of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

    Apple, UnitedHealth stocks slash 50 points from Dow industrials in midday trade

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average was under pressure Friday afternoon, weighed by selling in shares of Apple Inc. and UnitedHealth. The Dow components, the worst blue-chip performers, were exacting a combined 50-point toll on the Dow in midday trading. UnitedHealth Group Inc.'s shares alone were dragging the benchmark down by more than 30 points, with shares trading $4.20 or 2.2% lower. Meanwhile, Apple Inc. was trading 1.8% lower, or $2.51, and on pace for its worst weekly decline, down 5.6%, during the week of one of its iPhone product updates. A $1 move in any one of the Dow's 30 components is equal to a 6.89-point swing. Most recently, the Dow was down 34 points, or 0.2%, at 22,324. Overall, the market was flipping between advances and declines as investors wrestled with North Korea's threat to detonate a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean this weekend. The S&P 500 index was down 0.1% at 2,497, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was trading 0.1% lower at 6,415.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Health care sector falls as likelihood of ACA repeal rises; UnitedHealth's stock leads Dow losers

    The health care sector traded broadly lower Tuesday, amid concerns over the potential effects of the Graham-Cassidy bill, which some analysts say is becoming increasingly likely to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF shed 0.9% in afternoon trade, with 56 of its 62 components trading lower. Among the XLV's most heavily-weighted components, UnitedHealth Group's stock dropped 1.8% to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's decliners. The price decline of $3.61 was shaving 25 points off the Dow, which was up 44 points. Analyst Ana Gupte at Leerink Research said the bill could lead to "greater earnings downside in the near term than previous House and Senate bills for ACA-levered stocks." Among companies that Gupte said are at particular risk, shares of Centene Corp. slumped 4.6% and Molina Healthcare Inc. gave up 6.1%. Elsewhere, shares of Aetna Inc. fell 3.4%, Humana Inc. slid 3.2%, Cigna Corp. declined 1.9% and Anthem Inc. was down 2.0%. Gupte said diversified managed care organizations (MCOs) like Humana and Cigna are more defensive, though exposure should be manageable for UnitedHealth, Aetna and Anthem. The XLV has gained 4.3% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has tacked on 2.2%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    UnitedHealth's stock slumps to shave 25 points off the Dow's price

    Shares of UnitedHealth Group Inc. sank slumped 1.8% in midday trade Tuesday, enough to pace the decliners in the Dow Jones Industrial Average , after the health insurer disclosed that its vice chairman sold about $10 million worth of stock last week. The stock's price decline of $3.64 shaved about 25 points off the Dow's price, which was up 34 points. The stock has not lost 2.6% since it closed at a record of $199.75 on Sept. 1. The company said late Monday in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that Vice Chairman Larry Renfro sold a total of 50,574 shares of UnitedHealth at an average price of $198.1142 on Sept. 15; the shares traded within an intraday range of $197.20 to $199.71 and closed at $198.18 that day. The stock has gained 6.3% over the past three months, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has advanced 4.5% and the Dow has tacked on 3.9%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Travelers stock weighs on Dow industrials in late trade

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Wednesday was seeing modest gains capped in late-afternoon trade partly on the back of a decline in insurer Travelers Cos. Inc. in the wake of the Hurricane Harvey. The Dow briefly slipped into negative territory, with Travelers stock down 1% as the impact of a now-Tropical storm Harvey was being assessed in the Houston and Louisiana area. Some estimates peg losses in the Gulf Coast region at around $160 billion, which could hit insurance companies. Meanwhile, shares of Johnson & Johnson and UnitedHealth Group Inc. were also pressuring the blue-chip benchmark. Most recently, the Dow was up less than 0.1% at 21,885, while the S&P 500 index climbed 0.5%, and the Nasdaq Composite Index looked on track to post a more than 1% advance.
