The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) is headed for back-to-back losses amid a post-earnings slide for Dow (DOW) stock. Boeing (BA) headwinds are also pressuring the blue-chip index, with the stock getting hit with a round of price-target cuts following yesterday's bruising earnings reaction. The S&P 500 Index (SPX) and Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) are also trading lower, retreating from record highs as Facebook (FB) and Tesla (TSLA) sell off after earnings. Elsewhere, though, oil prices are on the upswing, with September-dated crude futures up 1% at $56.40 per barrel.
