The Dow Jones IndustrialAverage ended with losses for its eighth session in a row on worries the Trump administration can't enact the growth initiatives promised. The losing streak was the longest since 2011. Disney's (DIS) - Get Report live-action Beauty and the Beast dominated the box office for the second weekend in a row. The film earned $88 million at North American cinemas over the weekend. G-III Apparel (GIII) - Get Report slumped after swinging to a quarterly loss and guiding for a weaker-than-expected fiscal year. The clothing brand said the retail environment has become "increasingly disrupted" as consumer buying behavior changes and e-commerce grows. Best Buy (BBY) - Get Report rose after Piper Jaffray upgraded the stock to OVERWEIGHT from SECTOR WEIGHT and increased its price target by $10. Analysts said they see the potential for higher comparable store sales growth.
