The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) was up more than 100 points early on, but those gains quickly evaporated, mainly due to weakness in Apple (AAPL) and UnitedHealth (UNH) -- overshadowing Home Depot's (HD) rally to record levels and a big surge for Nike (NKE) in the process. Meanwhile, a broad rebound in tech stocks helped the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) and S&P 500 Index (SPX) comfortably snap their four-session losing streaks.

  • Why Snap stock just recorded its lowest close ever.
  • Call traders responded to another AMD bull note.
  • Kroger stock grabbed some pre-earnings love.
  • Plus, Tesla shares bounce; analysts go bearish on one restaurant stock; and an energy stock that could break out.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI - 25,857.07) started hot but spent the rest of the day moving lower, finishing down 59.5 points, or 0.2%. Of the Dow's 30 components, 17 closed higher, led by NKE's 2.2% gain. Meanwhile, UNH was the biggest loser, dropping 3.2%.

The S&P 500 Index (SPX - 2,877.13) rose 5.5 points, or 0.2%, and the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC - 7,924.16) added 21.6 points, or 0.3%.

The Cboe Volatility Index (VIX - 14.16) closed down 0.7 point, or 4.8%.
