Dow Jones Industrial Average Falls 208 Points On Mixed Earnings

Stocks to Watch: TWTR, SF, F, HAL, BHI

  • Stocks to Watch No. 1, TWTR: Shares of Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) fell 4.6% after CEO Jack Dorsey announced via social media that four leading executives are leaving the company "voluntarily." The company will also soon announce two new board members in the near term. This is an incredible turnover rate for the social media company, as 13 of the 18 executives that were part of Twitter's analyst day last year have departed from the company in the last 12 months. The company's stock also received a downgrade from investment firm Stifel Financial Corp. (NYSE: SF). After today's loss, here's what you can expect next from TWTR stock.
  • Stocks to Watch No. 2, F: Shares of Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) were off 1.3% on news the U.S. auto manufacturer announced plans to pull out of the Japanese and Indonesian markets. The firm said it sees no logical path to boost sales growth or to sustain long-term profitability. Neither market is considered large by any means, as the firm only sold 6,100 vehicles in Indonesia and 5,000 in Japan last year. However, the decision is part of a broader sign that the automotive market is struggling to find growth in a strong-dollar environment.
  • Stocks to Watch No. 3, HAL: Shares of Halliburton Co. (NYSE: HAL) were off more than 3% after the company announced a loss in the fourth quarter. The firm said it was hurt by a downturn in the global energy sector and falling revenue from its North American business. The company is in the process of purchasing its rival Baker Hughes Inc. (NYSE: BHI) in a deal worth $35 billion. However, the deal is facing an increasing number of regulatory concerns.
