Most of the Dow Jones industrial average components have reported their latest quarterly reports, and overall the results have been decent, with a few notable exceptions. Yet the index is only marginally higher than it was two weeks ago.
This week, five of the 30 Dow components are expected to share their results this week. The index has been subject to increased volatility since January, and some investors may have looked to the current earnings season to stabilize it.
