2 Winning Dow Stocks on a Down Day

In the follwing video, industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes discusses two winners on the Dow Jones Industrial Average today. Overall, the blue-chip index dropped slightly, down 0.3% despite some positive housing data. But that didn't stop Hewlett-Packard from rising 2.4% on the day even though it hit a 52-week low in morning trading. Still, the company remains the Dow's worst performer on the year by far, and it's a stock Brendan recommends staying away from for the time being.

Boeing was another Dow winner today, rising 1.25%. Rival EADS' potential merger with BAE Systems hit a bit of a snag today, with German politicians worrying that France and Britain might possibly have more influence in a combined company. Check out the video for more on the Dow's down day, and these two stocks in particular.

Boeing looks like a solid stock going forward and sports a 2.5% dividend. Still, it didn't quite make the cut for our analysts' favorite Dow dividend stocks.
