Considering eight of the 30 DJIA stocks are in positive territory, it's probably best not to plan on much of a recovery. Not the end of the world, though. We can't go up every week, even if most of us wouldn't mind that. The market's still a long way from its depths back in March. As for individual stocks, GM ( GM) continued to stumble around multidecade lows. This time, it was losing 6 cents at $1.09. The latest news is that it's planning to pull the charters from more than 1,000 dealers and that it might be close to a cost-cutting deal with the UAW. This day one year ago, it closed at $21.23. Two years ago it was almost $31. The carmaker was also the worst stock on a percentage basis, losing 5.2%. The next weakest was Bank of America ( BAC), down 5% at $10.75. Looks like Washington wants some change on the board there. Intel ( INTC) and Pfizer ( PFE) were each giving back about 2.2%. Meanwhile, Alcoa ( AA) was gaining 4% to $9.10 after Goldman Sachs had positive comments, but the only other winner of note was Microsoft ( MSFT), up 1.4% at $20.34. I know. A little on the dull side. Don't worry. Weekend's almost here.
