The Dow Theory for stocks remains intact, Bank of America says
Bank of America says the Dow Theory remains intact, even with stocks off their July highs. The Dow Theory is a positive signal for equities, suggesting stocks are in an upward trend if new highs are reached in two indexes.
“The Dow Theory remains on its mid-July bullish trend confirmation signal, which was when both the Dow Industrials and Dow Transports achieved new recovery highs to confirm the bull market from late 2022,” technical strategist Stephen Suttmeier wrote on Monday.
“The dip from the late July high represents a correction within this bullish signal,” Suttmeier added.

Arm IPO’s price could top $51 per share: Reuters
Chip designer Arm is reportedly “getting close” to securing enough investor support to attain the fully diluted valuation of $54.5 billion it seeks in its initial public offering, Reuters reported, citing sources familiar with the matter.
This means Arm will likely be able to price the IPO “at the top or above” the $47-to-$51-per-share range, the report said.
The sources said Arm is also discussing the possibility of raising the price range and seeking a valuation of more than $54.5 billion, in light of strong investor interest.
However, Arm will not offer more shares, as SoftBank wants to retain a 90.6% stake in Arm following the IPO, the sources said.

Investors may be ‘overlooking’ Nvidia AI catalysts
Nvidia’s “underappreciated” pipeline of generative artificial intelligence products could spell major upside ahead for its stock despite its 8% pullback so far this month, according to Bank of America.
“In part, NVDA’s compressed valuation already reflects investor concerns about sustainability of genAI capex, geopolitical concerns (China restrictions) and (overstated) competitive risks from AMD/INTC,” analyst Vivek Arya said when listing the stock as a top pick.

Investors react to latest earnings reports
A handful of stocks moved in extended trading after reporting earnings.
Oracle dropped more than 9% after the bell following a mixed report for the fiscal first quarter. The company beat expectations of analysts polled by LSEG for earnings per share by 4 cents, coming in at $1.19 when adjusted. But revenue came in slightly below consensus, with Oracle posting $12.45 billion despite analysts anticipating $12.47 billion.
Meanwhile, retailer Casey’s General Stores was up more than 3%. The retailer blew past earnings expectations, posting $4.52 per share on a consensus estimate of $3.36 from analysts polled by FactSet. That took attention away from revenue, with the company reporting $3.87 billion while Wall Street expected $3.9 billion.
