S&P 500 logs first finish above 3000 in a month as stocks broadly rise; Dow's gain capped by Boeing
U.S. stock indexes finished mostly higher Monday but the Dow's ascent was capped by a sharp decline in shares of component Boeing Co. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 57 points, or 0.2%, at 26,828, with gains for the blue-chip index limited by a 3.8% decline in shares of Boeing , which produced a roughly 90-point drag on the index. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index advanced 0.7% to 3,007, marking its highest finish since Sept. 21 and its first close above the psychologically significant level at 3,000 since that date, according to FactSet data. The Nasdaq Composite Index ended the session up 0.9% at 8,163. All closing levels for the stock-market indexes are on a preliminary basis. Shares of Boeing sank for a third straight session as the Wall Street Journal reported that Congress was intensifying scrutiny of the plane maker as new details pointed to undue management pressure on employees and allegations suggested that officials knew of problems with its 737 MAX jet before the plane got approval to fly. Monday's trading action came as investors were digesting mostly upbeat reports on Sino-American trade talks and corporate quarterly results, which were coming in better than expected. Meanwhile, the 10-year Treasury note yield rose 4.7 basis points to a four-week high of 1.794%, reflecting a so-call risk-on environment.

The net loss was $11.97 billion, or $8.22 a share, after income of $787 million, or 46 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Excluding non-recurring items, such as a $12.7 billion charge related to goodwill, intangible assets and fixed assets as a result of "market conditions, adjusted earnings per share came to 43 cents, above the FactSet consensus of 40 cents. Revenue was edged up to $8.54 billion from $8.50 billion, just above the FactSet consensus of $8.50 billion, as an 11% drop in North America revenue was offset by 8% growth in international revenue. "This quarter's results reflected a macro environment of slowing production growth rate in North America land as operators maintained capital discipline, reducing drilling and frac activity," said Chief Executive Olivier Le Peuch. Although international revenue continues to be underpinned by international investment levels, Le Peuch said "market uncertainty" is weighing on the future oil demand outlook " in a climate where trade concerns are seen as challenging global economic growth." The stock has tumbled 17.8% over the past three months, while the VanEck Vectors Oil Services ETF has dropped 19.0% and the S&P 500 has ticked up 0.1%.
