Stock Market This Week – Pfizer Inc. (PFE) Travelers Companies (NYSE:TRV) Share Prices Crumble

alt text

(Best Syndication News) Most world stock markets were lower on Friday (see charts below). All three major U.S. indexes are trending lower over the last 100 days, month and week.

Although there was some good economic news this week, initial jobless claims were in-line with what some analysts expected and the U.S. trade deficit shrank, slower than expected Chinese export growth dampened investor confidence. This could be a sign that global economic activity may be slowing.

Of the world indexes we track, only the Nikkei 225, S&PASX 200 (Australia) and the Shanghai composite indexes were higher (see world market index chart below).

Stock prices in Europe, North American and South America were generally lower. Only the Nikkei was higher for the week and only the Nikkei and DAX (Germany) have been able to hold on to their gains over the last 100 days.

Dow Jones

This was the sixth straight week of declines as the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) fell 172.45 points (-1.42%) on Friday. The index fell 1.64 percent for the week.

Only three of the Dow’s 30 constituents were higher Friday (see Dow Constituent chart below). AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), and Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC) were advancing on Friday. Citigroup and Wells Fargo were also higher.

The Dow’s biggest loser, Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE), saw their share prices dropped 0.64 (-3.08%) to $20.11. The company is looking to trim expenses and deal with their expiring patents.

The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE:TRV) was the second biggest loser Friday. The share price fell 1.87 (-3.06%) to $59.21. The recent spat of tornadoes may be weighing heavily on the share price.

S&P 500 and Nasdaq

The S&P 500 index was down 18.02 points (-1.40%) to 1,270.98 and the Nasdaq fell 41.14 points (-1.53%) to 2,643.73.

All S&P sectors were lower Friday (see sector chart below). Over the last 30 days, some sectors were down nearly ten percent. The Energy, Industrials, and Financial sectors were all down in excess of nine percent.
