    The stock market following back-to-back indecisive sessions this week, started out the current trading day to the downside, albeit not dramatically so. A sudden reversal in oil prices, brought on by a surprise build in crude stocks, and a disappointing report on sales of existing homes in July (see below) have combined to take some air out of the market's balloon so far today.

    The U.S. stock market opened nicely higher this morning, but ended the session with more modest gains in the major averages. At the close of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 18 points; the S&P 500 Index was ahead four points; and the NASDAQ was higher by 15 points. However, most stocks made progress today, as advancers were comfortably ahead of decliners on the NYSE. Essentially, all of the major market sectors made strides, with pronounced strength in the basic materials issues. The technology stocks also put in a solid performance. In contrast, the defensive utility group did not participate in today’s advance.

    SWOT Analysis: Stanley Black and Decker, Inc.
    Iason Dalavagas  |  08/22/2016
    The business outlook at Stanley Black and Decker, Inc. (SWK) is promising, despite a somewhat challenging industry environment. The company has strong brand recognition in the industries in which it competes, and also has a diversified product portfolio. However, the company’s focus on the U.S. market could hurt overall results if the American economy falters.
