    The stock market had an up-and-down day on Tuesday, with early gains giving way to small losses for most major benchmarks by the end of the session. Despite the modest declines, indexes remain near record highs, and even the ongoing back-and-forth of trade-related comments — both conciliatory and threatening — hasn’t done anything more than put a minor dent in a major advance for stocks in the third quarter. Yet some companies suffered from bad news. CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), Jabil (NYSE:JBL), and Neogen (NASDAQ:NEOG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Celgene Corp. (NASDAQ:CELG) investors would probably like a few do-overs given the company’s stumbles over the past year. First, it suffered a key clinical-trial failure that forced it to ratchet back its long-term sales outlook. Then, the FDA sent it an embarrassing Refusal to File letter for its most-anticipated drug, ozanimod.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The Trump administration is considering a 25% tariff on up to $200 billion in Chinese goods. This is the latest escalation of an ongoing trade spat that has ripped through the heartland of the United States and threatens to bring the market rally to a screeching halt. On Tuesday, soybean prices rallied more than $0.28 in Chicago on speculation that the Trump administration is looking to resolve trade relations with China. Following the White House’s announcement, soybeans gave back a majority of those gains as trade fears rattled the agriculture industry. Finally, Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) is on the verge of becoming the first $1 trillion company by market capitalization. The firm was close to topping $200 per share on Wednesday morning after a terrific earnings report after the bell yesterday.

    The stock market had another session of quiet trading on Tuesday, leaving most major benchmarks close to where they started. Declines early in the day gave way to more promising news from the bond market, where interest rates stabilized following last week’s big jump. Geopolitical and macroeconomic concerns continue to linger, and recent reports suggest weakening confidence in the prospects for global economic growth. Yet some companies benefited from good news that overcame the lackluster mood on Wall Street, and Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA), Pyxus International (NYSE:PYX), and Papa John’s International (NASDAQ:PZZA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

The company went public at the very height of that adrenaline rush. If you bought in at Zynga’s peak share prices in the spring of 2012, you’ve weathered a 70% cut to your investment’s value so far.
