Today was another relatively flat day for the market, with all three major indices closing in positive territory. The Dow Jones Industrial Average
While most of the Dow's 30 companies were positive on the day, there were seven that ended the day in the red. Microsoft
The other two biggest Dow losers on the day were McDonald's
Outside the Dow, there were some bigger losers. Zynga continued its drop after a report last week from the Macquarie Group, which highlighted concerns that the company is not well diversified. The company lost more than 9% today. Chinese online game developer Perfect World ended the day down over 26% after a report on a Chinese blog of rumors that the company was being investigated by regulators. The blog has since removed the story and the company has denied the allegations, but the damage was done. Perfect World will certainly be an interesting one to watch tomorrow.
