NYSE's breadth and volume data suggests investors aren't scrambling to buy stocks
Despite the big, broad rally in the major stock market indexes, breadth readings for the NYSE suggest investors aren't so worried about missing the boat to buy stocks. There are 1,960 stock gaining ground on the NYSE, compared with 925 declining stocks and 146 stock that are unchanged, according to FactSet, which means 64.7% of the stocks traded are rising. But volume of advancing stocks represents just 59.2% of the total volume. That has pushed the NYSE's Arms Index up to 1.434. The Arms Index is a volume-weighted breadth measure, which tends to rise above the equilibrium 1.000 rating when the market falls, as the proportion of volume flowing into declining stocks tends to be higher than the volume flowing into advancing stocks. Basically, Tuesday's Arms reading suggests investors are more worried about missing the opportunity to sell the stocks that are declining than they are about buying stocks that are rising. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is rallying 165 points, or 0.7% and the S&P 500 is gaining 0.7%, both toward record closes.

UPDATE: Medtronic shares jump 3% premarket after second-quarter profit and sales beats
Medtronic plc said Tuesday it had net income of $2.01 billion, or $1.48 a share, in its fiscal second quarter through Oct. 28, up from $1.12 billion, or 80 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to $1.07, ahead of the FactSet consensus of 98 cents. Sales fell to $7.05 billion from $7.35 billion, but were also ahead of the FactSet consensus of $6.98 billion. The revenue decline was driven by the company's sale of its Patient care, Deep Vein Thrombosis and Nutritional Insufficiency businesses to Cardinal Health that took place at the beginning of the quarter. Hurricane Maria shaved another $55 million to $65 million off revenue. 'Our second quarter financial results are very encouraging, when considered in the context of a quarter in which we faced three hurricanes and the California wildfires,' chief Executive Omar Ishrak said in a statement. The company reiterated guidance that is based on a comparable, constant currency basis. Shares jumped 3% premarket, and have gained 11% in 2017, while the S&P 500 has gained 15%.

ViiV Healthcare says FDA has approved its two-drug HIV regimen, in first such instance
ViiV Healthcare, which is majority-owned by GlaxoSmithKline and has Pfizer Inc. and Shionogi as shareholders, said on Tuesday that the Food and Drug Administration has approved its two-drug HIV regimen. The therapy, Juluca, is the first such HIV drug composed of just two drugs -- dolutegravir and rilpivirine, both of which have been previously approved -- while other HIV regimens are typically composed of at least three drugs. This advancement could make the regimen more tolerable for the patient, according to Dr. Debra Birnkrant, director of the Division of Antiviral Products in the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. Juluca is approved for individuals with HIV-1 who have been stable on a regimen for at least half a year, have no history of treatment failure and no known resistance to Juluca's individual components, ViiV said. GlaxoSmithKline shares declined 0.8% in Tuesday trade; shares have dropped nearly 10% over the last three months, compared with a 7% rise in the S&P 500 and a nearly 8% rise in the Dow Jones Industrial Average .
