Dow buoyed by Wal-Mart but loses ground as P&G's stock falls on Peltz's proxy vote
The Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated off session highs late Tuesday morning on reports that prominent investor Nelson Peltz of Trian Fund Management lost a closely watched proxy contest to put him on Procter & Gamble Co.'s board. Shares of Dow component P&G were off $1.27, or about 1.4%, cutting about 10 points from the Dow . The price-weighted blue-chip gauge, however, is being buoyed by rally in shares of retail giant Wal-Mart Stores Inc. , which was up, $3.59, or 4.5%, and contributing roughly 25 points to the benchmark's gain after the retailer said announced a $20 billion stock buyback program and detailed its profit and sales outlook. A $1 shift in any one of the Dow's 30 components equates to a 6.89-point swing. At P&G's annual, general meeting on Tuesday, Peltz failed to win a seat on the company's board, according to P&G. Peltz's Trian, however, sees the vote as too close to call. Most recently, the Dow was up 31 points, or 0.1%, at 22,791. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index was trading 2 points, or 0.1%, higher, at 2,547, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was flat at 6,576. All three equity benchmarks touched intraday records on Tuesday but have since pulled back from session highs.

Trian urges Procter & Gamble to take action to improve underperformance
Activist investor Trian Fund Management said Thursday that Procter & Gamble Co. needs to take action to address the "root causes" of an inconsistent performance, that has kept its returns to shareholders at less than half its peers in the last 10 years. The fund, headed by investor Nelson Peltz, said underperformance includes the loss of market shares across many categories and excessive costs. "While P&G says it is addressing the underperformance issue, shareholders have heard similar promises in the past and results have not materially improved. Trian believes P&G can once again be a best-in-class performer but it must take decisive action that goes above and beyond what it has previously announced, including committing to significantly changing its overly complex organizational structure and slow moving and insular culture." Trian said adding Peltz to the board would help with accountability, creating a sense of urgency and better cost management. Trian owns about $3.3 billion of P&G stock. The shares were up 2.6% in premarket trade, after the company posted fourth-quarter earnings that were above Wall Street expectations. Shares have gained 6% in 2017, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 10% and the S&P 500 has gained 11%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
