A8 TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1996 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL T STOCKS TDEBT Dow dances fleetingly with 6,000 Dow average moves to record territory before falling back for the day By The Associated Press NEW YORK — The Dow Jones industrial average's first-ever move above 6,000 was fleeting, but other stock measures edged to new highs Monday as investors braced for a blizzard of third-quarter earnings reports. The NASDAQ market returned to record territory for the first time in four months, having taken nearly a month longer than the broad market to rebound from the July's steep selloff. The Dow bobbed above 6,000 twice in the first half hour, but then spent the remainder of Monday's session with a small deficit from Friday's record close, falling 13.05 to 5,979.81 by the closing bell. Still, the move past 6,000 punctuated a dramatic 800-point re- bound from the market's summertime blues, and comes less than a year after the Dow broke the 5,000- mark, which was just before last Thanksgiving. The stock and bond markets were pressured throughout Monday's session by profit taking on Friday's big rally. The Dow soared 60 points Friday after the government reported unemployment unexpectedly edged higher in September from a seven-year low in August. The data eased worries about potential inflation from rising production costs, and helped validate the Federal Reserve's decision two weeks ago not to slow the economy, and perhaps company profits, by raising the central bank's key lending rates. But with the market facing a barrage of earnings reports for the July-September quarter, investors were hesitant about launching another buying spree. "The market really got in front of itself (on Friday) and over-celebrated the fact that maybe we can get through the year without the Fed raising interest rates," said Robert Froehlich, chief investment strategist at Van Kampen American Capital in Oakbrook Terrace, 111. If the market is to extend its record-setting advance, "it's going to be determined by what the earnings show for the third quarter, and everbody's refocusing on that now. The one-day celebration is over," Froehlich said. The NASDAQ composite index rose 3.31 to 1,250.87, beating June 5's record close of 1,249.15 and completing its recovery from a 20 percent slide in the summer. Analysts said it was noteworthy the NASDAQ's advance was led again by blue-chip issues such as Intel and Microsoft, which — like the 30 Dow industrials — have benefited from a more cautious attitude among investors following July's selloff. The majority of NASDAQ issues are smaller, more speculative companies that have failed to recover as fully as the larger companies populating the Standard & Poor's 500 or the New York Stock Exchange. Similarly, the American Stock Exchange market value index, which rose 2.33 to 582.22 on Monday, is also dominated by speculative shares and remains more than 30 points shy of its all-time high. Declining issues outnumbered advancers by a slim margin on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume totaled 380.82 million shares as of 3 p.m. CDT, down considerably from Friday's busy pace. The S&P 500 list and the NYSE composite index padded Friday's record highs. The S&P 500 rose 1.88 to 703.34, and the NYSE composite rose 0.58 to 374.74, its seventh record close in eight sessions.

The Federal Reserve reported Monday the August increase followed a July gain of 7.6 percent at an annual rate. In dollar terms, consumer debt rose by $3.3 billion in August after increasing $7.3 billion in July. According to analysts, the slowdown occurred when consumers burdened by record-high debt cut down on borrowing. Many banks have been tightening credit standards in the face of rising delin- quencies and personal bankrupt 1 cies in recent months. "' "The runup in consumer debt was reaching unsustainable pro-" portions," said Chris Varvares of' Macroeconomic Advisers in St.' Louis. ' The slowdown in borrowing' was expected to slow the growth of consumer spending, which ao« counts for two-thirds of the total' economic activity. '•• Varvares said he believed the' gross domestic product, which' raced ahead at an annual rate of 4.7 percent in the second quarter^ grew by a much slower 2 percent' in the third quarter. The August change was the'' smallest since the debt level had. actually declined by $200 million 1 ' in May 1993. The $3.3 billion in' crease in August put the total debt 1 level at $1.17 trillion. It first passed the $1 trillion mark last year. -' Free Snapple promotion fizzles By The Associated Press CHICAGO — They came, they drank, they didn't buy. Quaker Oats Co. spent $20 million this summer giving away millions of bottles of its ailing Snap- pie fruit-juice and iced-tea line in hopes consumers would then turn around and buy millions more in the stores. It didn't work. The Chicago-based food-and- beverage maker now has some tough choices to make as it tries to stem an increasing tide of share- holder discontent, analysts said. "To state the very obviousf Snapple has been an abject failure," Michael Mouboussin at CS First Boston said Monday. "I£ boils down to two things for Quak- ; er to do now: Sell the business outright or attempt to run it next year^ with a vastly altered strategy." '" Snapple liquid tea sales fell a; sharp 14 percent, with marker/ : share falling 2.5 percentage points to 21.4 percent. Market share foi*' juices fell 1.1 percent percentage' points to 7.3 percent, Nielsen reported.
