    Dow transports drop to buck broader stock market gains after disappointing data

    The Dow Jones Transportation Average slumped 0.5% in midday trading Monday, to buck the broader stock market's gains, to track surprise declines in manufacturing data and home builder sentiment. The Dow transports were led lower by shares of railroad operators Norfolk Southern Corp. , down 1.4%; Union Pacific Corp. , which was 1.3% lower; and Southwest Airlines Co. , which fell 1.2%. Earlier, the Empire State manufacturing index for June posted the largest-ever drop into negative territory, despite expectations of a positive reading, while the National Association of Home Builders' index of home builder confidence fell 2 points to 64 in June, missing expectations of a 1-point increase. That led the yield on the 10-year Treasury note to decline 0.7 basis points to 2.086%. Many on Wall Street view the Dow transports as a proxy on economic growth. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 57 points, or 0.2%. The broader market may be boosted by expectations that the Federal Reserve will confirm this week that recent data supports the notion that the next rate move will be down.
