The Dow’s Return to Volatility?: The Boeing Company (BA), Herbalife Ltd. (HLF)

Elsewhere, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares fell 2% so far today following Foxconn Technology Group’s announcement that it would be freezing its hiring of assembly-line workers. Foxconn is the largest assembler of Apple products, indicating that sales of the tech gadgets may be slowing.

Finally, the herbal supplement company Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) exceeded analyst expectations with its earnings release last night, though its results have not propelled it higher today, as the stock has stayed relatively flat. Investors should expect to see further quarreling words between Carl Icahn and Bill Ackman. The company’s earnings release and conference call may give investors a better look at whether Ackman’s accusations of the company being a pyramid scheme have any clout.
