The Dow snapped a four-day win streak on Thursday, as Walmart's (WMT) grim forecast weighed on the blue-chip index. A wider-than-expected drop in import prices for October contributed to today's pessimism, while lackluster manufacturing data did little to ease concerns. Meanwhile, both the Nasdaq and S&P 500 settled just above breakeven, despite struggles for energy and tech stocks.  

  • Walmart stock brushes off quarterly win.
  • How this retail stock won over call traders.
  • Plus, behind CSCO's plummet; Goodyear Tire stock upgraded; and oil stock pullback not a cause for concern.
