    Stocks Climb From Lows as Growth Debate Heats Up: Markets Wrap

    White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said that if the partial government shutdown extends through March, there’s a chance of zero economic expansion this quarter, though “humongous” growth would follow once federal agencies reopen. “The broader concern that I think will continue to creep in here is, leaving trade aside, is how weak is global growth? White House adviser Lawrence Kudlow said late Tuesday that negotiations between the U.S. and China next week will be “determinative,” leaving traders on edge about the prospects for a deal.

    Dow's gain bucks negative broad-market breadth data

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 24 points in afternoon trade, defying the negative breadth in the broader market, as the sharp gains in three Dow components were enough to keep the blue-chip barometer in positive territory. Of the Dow's 30 components, 21 were trading lower. But the stock price gains for International Business Machines Corp. , United Technologies Corp. and Procter & Gamble Co. after upbeat earnings reports added about 121 points to the Dow's price. Meanwhile, the number of declining stocks lead advancers 1,699 to 1,095 on the NYSE and 1,601 to 1,153 on the Nasdaq exchange. The volume of declining stocks represented 58.8% of total volume on the Big Board and 65.2% of total volume on the Nasdaq. While the Dow gained, the S&P 500 declined 0.2% and the Nasdaq Composite shed 0.5%.

    Ford's stock falls ahead of earnings report

    Shares of Ford Motor Co. dropped 2.1% in midday trade Wednesday, ahead of the automaker's fourth-quarter results, which were due after the close. Over the past 20 quarters, Ford had beat the FactSet earnings-per-share consensus 12 times, but the stock has suffered one-day, post-earnings declines 12 times, by an average of 3.2%. The average gain was 3.1%. Ahead of results, J.P. Morgan analyst Ryan Brinkman cut Ford's 2018 EPS estimate to $1.25 from $1.35, trimmed his stock price target to $12 from $13 and lowered his lowered global production outlook by 1.6% to 5.871 million units, with cuts driven primarily by China. Separately, Edmunds analyst Jeremy Acevedo said 2018 marked a rebuilding year for Ford, as the company lost market share and sales declined, and "leaned heavily" on incentive spending to move its aging products off dealer lots. Ford's stock has tumbled 30.4% over the past 12 months, while rival General Motors Co. shares have lost 13.0% and the S&P 500 has declined 7.5%.

    Stocks turn lower on U.S. shutdown, growth, trade worries

    A global index of stock markets turned negative on Wednesday as worries over U.S. politics, global economic growth and trade tensions offset a boost from quarterly earnings reports. The U.S. dollar and oil prices also declined. U.S. Treasury yields climbed but analysts expect the $15.6 trillion market to be confined within a tight trading range due to a dearth of incentives from fresh economic data amid the longest-ever U.S. government shutdown.
