Stocks were greeted with some unusual problems this morning. Dow component Boeing was reeling from more bad news about the battery troubles on their new Dream-liner. The news was significant enough that all 787 were grounded across Japan. On the banking front, behemoth JP Morgan reported a monstrous 53% gain in profits at the same time as reporting a large trading loss and building legal problems. In a mixed market the Dow lost 23 points while the other two major U.S. Indices had small gains.
