Yes, It Counts( At 6:10 p.m. EDT) So it wasn't much, but it was enough. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 3.91 points to 6930.40 Wednesday, the first time it has put together a two-session win streak in more than a month. Clearly, it wasn't a repeat of Tuesday's nearly 380-point run-up, but at least we didn't give back 290, so I'll take it and ask you to do the same. At the end of trading, half of the 30 components were up, and half were down. Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ) made the biggest contribution to the uptick, accounting for 12.50 points on the plus side. Exxon Mobil ( XOM) was the biggest drag, deducting 12.90 points from the total.
