The Dow component leading the way higher looks to be JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), which is sporting a $1.04 gain (+2.1%) bringing the stock to $51.57. This single gain is lifting the Dow Jones Industrial Average by 7.87 points or roughly accounting for 7.2% of the Dow's overall gain.

JPMorgan Chase has a market cap of $190.2 billion and is part of the financial sector and banking industry.

JPMorgan Chase & Co., a financial holding company, provides various financial services worldwide.

TheStreet Ratings rates JPMorgan Chase as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and attractive valuation levels. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Holding back the Dow today is Microsoft Corporation (Nasdaq:MSFT), which is lagging the broader Dow index with a $1.52 decline (-4.6%) bringing the stock to $31.88. Volume for Microsoft Corporation currently sits at 19.6 million shares traded vs. an average daily trading volume of 48.6 million shares.

Microsoft Corporation has a market cap of $278.22 billion and is part of the technology sector and computer software & services industry.

TheStreet Ratings rates Microsoft Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, attractive valuation levels and impressive record of earnings per share growth. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.
