The Dow Jones Industrial Average index (INDEXDJX:.DJI) fell 138.73 points (-1.09%) to 12,584.17. The index is down 1.40 percent for the week, but still 2.98 percent higher for the 30-day period (30 Business Days).

The Dow broke through yesterday’s S2 support level of 12,618.73. The index is still well above the 50-day and 100-day moving averages (see technical chart below for more details).

The company announced that shareholders will receive a quarterly stock dividend of 3 cents per share (to SH of record as of May 16, 2011).

Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) fell $2.19 (-2.58%) to $82.62. Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) was also lower as oil prices dropped nearly nine percent on the NYMEX (1-day).
