The stock market finished Wednesday on a quiet note, with various major benchmarks moving in different directions. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down about 90 points on weakness in some major industrial and insurance company names, but the Nasdaq Composite posted a similar-sized percentage gain. More broadly, market participants appear to be waiting to see whether strong corporate performance can keep overcoming pressure on the geopolitical front and send stocks to new highs. For some individual companies, though, bad news pushed shares lower. CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), Super Micro Computer (NASDAQ:SMCI), and Lear (NYSE:LEA) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

- [By John Rotonti]
Rotonti: Cognizant (NASDAQ:CTSH) recently named a new CEO. Does this change your investment thesis in the company?
Allen: No. Cognizant’s consulting and outsourcing model is benefiting from the increasing importance of technology spending and the scarcity of skilled tech labor, which should allow the company to generate high-single-digit revenue growth for many years. Francisco D’Souza has been the CEO since 2007 and was a co-founder of the company in 1994. After a successful tenure, he’s ready to retire and we wish him all the best. The board conducted a thorough search process and selected Brian Humphries from Vodafone Business, who will bring a fresh perspective to the company.

Three Stocks to Watch Today: AAPL, DBX, STMP
Shares of Dropbox Inc. (NYSE: DBX) plunged more than 10% after the company’s forward guidance fell well short of Wall Street expectations Thursday. Even though the firm topped quarterly earnings and revenue expectations, the cloud storage giant announced it would take a large write down on the value of its recent HelloSign acquisition. That will impact company margins in the year ahead, in addition to the firm’s plans to relocate offices to San Francisco, where rents are much higher. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) continues to remain in the headlines. The firm’s iPhone sales had been declining before the company decided to stop reporting unit sales beginning this year.
