    The U.S. stock market spent much of the day on a rollercoaster ride. The major averages headed sharply lower this morning, spent the afternoon in recovery mode, moved briefly into positive territory, only to pull back again later in the session. At the close of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 40 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was off five points; and the NASDAQ was lower by 13 points. The majority of stocks lost ground today, as declining issues outnumbered advancers by a healthy margin on the NYSE.

    Kenneth Nugent  |  03/26/2015

    Using A Value Line Report: Apple Finally Enters the Garden of Credence
    Simon Shoucair  |  03/25/2015
    Apple, Inc. has arguably become one of the most influential and innovative manufacturers in the global personal technology market, if not the most recognizable name in modern technology to date. Indeed, among the many newsworthy developments we will discuss in this review, the bit that commands the most attention of late is undoubtedly the tech titan’s long-awaited debut on the Dow Jones Index, a nod which many would contend has given the equity an overdue badge of credence that elevates it among the investment elite. This review will offer some insight regarding the benefits and caveats to joining the Dow, as well as analyzing the Value Line page to demonstrate the stock’s investment merits and potential pitfalls.

    The major U.S. equity indexes started the session to the downside and then for the most part never looked back, with the selling picking up around 11:30 A.M. (EDT) and intensifying further into the close. However, unlike recent selloffs, today’s sharp decline was not driven by a rising dollar and weak oil prices. Weighing on equities today were weaker-than-expected data on durable goods orders, which raised concerns that the pace of U.S. economic growth is slowing; a brokerage house downgrade the stock of NVIDIA (NVDA), which hit the semiconductor stocks; and renewed fears that the Federal Reserve may begin to tighten monetary policy earlier than expected, sentiment that emerged after strong data on new home sales yesterday and continued chatter from Fed officials that an interest-rate hike should be on the horizon.
