The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) and S&P 500 Index (SPX) are trading lower today, retreating from Wednesday's record-high closes. Growing concerns surrounding U.S.-China trade negotiations, as well as a negative earnings reaction for Cisco Systems (CSCO) stock, is creating headwinds, though losses are modest on Walmart's (WMT) post-earnings pop -- with the mega-retailer's third-quarter results drawing a congratulatory tweet from President Donald Trump.

  • Behind one tech stock's breakout session.
  • The Mustang buzz fueling upside for Ford stock.
  • Plus, bulls blitz surging penny stock; Dillard's booms on same-store sales; and a spiraling coal stock.
