Buy shares stock market
The stock market closed flat Wednesday, but the Nasdaq composite eked out a gain to extend its win streak to seven sessions. X The Nasdaq added less than 0.1%, holding on to a gain even after indexes slid in the closing moments. Its close at 7888 left the index just a fraction away from the prior high at 7933 three weeks ago. The S&P 500 eased a fraction, ending a four-day win streak. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 0.2%. Walt Disney (DIS) dragged the industrials as the entertainment giant fell 2% following its earnings report. Disney's sales and earnings missed expectations, sending the stock back near a previous 113.29 buy point in a flat base. Nike (NKE), another Dow component, rose above the 81.10 buy point of a flat base. But volume was lackluster and the relative strength line did not match the stock's move to new highs. Small caps were nearly flat also, with the Russell 2000 off slightly. The index held above its 50-day moving average, which is providing some … [Read more...] about Stock Market Closes Little Changed, But This Sector Takes A Beating

It’s been happening in slow motion — so slow you may not even have noticed. But by now the change is unmistakable: The market is half the size of its mid-1990s peak, and 25 percent smaller than it was in 1976. “This is troubling for the economy, for innovation and for transparence,” said René Stulz, an Ohio State finance professor who has written a new report on these issues for the National Bureau of Economic Research. When I say “shrinking,” I’m using a specific definition: the reduction in the number of publicly traded companies on exchanges in the United States. In the mid-1990s, there were more than 8,000 of them. By 2016, there were only 3,627, according to … [Read more...] about The Stock Market Is Shrinking. That’s a Problem for Everyone.

BUSINESS 07/26/2018 10:13 am ET Updated 28 minutes ago Some analysts said Facebook's issues would not be easily resolved. Vibhuti Sharma and Munsif Vengattil By Vibhuti Sharma and Munsif Vengattil (Reuters) - Facebook Inc Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg’s fortune took an almost $16 billion hit on Thursday, as the social media giant headed for the biggest one-day wipeout in U.S. stock market history, a day after executives forecast years of lower profit margins. At least 16 brokerages cut their price targets on Facebook after managers said the cost of improving privacy safeguards, as well as slowing usage in the biggest advertising markets, would hit the company’s profit margins for more than two years. Facebook shares were down as much as 19.6 percent at $174.78 in early trading, a decline that would wipe about $124 billion off the company’s value - or nearly four times the entire market capitalization of Twitter Inc.
