DJIA / Market Close for Wednesday, May 02, 2012

The Dow closed down -10.75 (-0.08%) at 13,268.57.

Nasdaq was up, S&P 500 was down and Russell 2000 was up. Guess we had a mixed day.

Dow component Intel (INTC) was up 0.8%. Intel added to the eight-year high it hit yesterday and today the purchase of computing-interconnect technology from Cray (CRAY) , initially announced last week, went through.

Home Depot (HD) was up 0.7% and made another new 11-year high today. Home Depot has found ways to profit from homeowners buying new properties or renovating old ones. If remodeling trends continue and new home sales pick up, then the home-improvement retailer may find share price improvement.

Procter & Gamble (PG) was up +0.6%. P&G delivered good news to some of its customers today by releasing a portable chewable tablet version of its Pepto-Bismol. Surely the stock didn’t rise because of that.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. shares are taking a beating tonight after the company disappointed investors with an earnings outlook for its fiscal year that fell short of Wall Street’s expectations. They are currently down -40.63% in after hours.
