Journal-Standard, Friday, July 11, 1975 Stock Market Report NEW YORK (UPI) - Investors shook off the disappointment over a rise in the prime rate today to push prices higher in active trading on the New York Stock Exchange. ' Shortly before noon, the Dow Jones industrial average,. off more than two points at the outset, was ahead 3.60 points to 875.47. Advances pulled ahead of declines, 575 to 558, among the 1,602 issues crossing the tape. Volume on the New York Stock Exchange amounted to 9,270,000 shares shortly before noon EDT, compared with 14,220,000 traded during the same period Thursday. Some of the market's early weakness was attributed to New York's First National City Bank's decision to raise its prime rate to 7*4 per cent from 7 per cent. But analysts noted short-term interest rates, on which Citibank pegs its. prime, were lower' following the Fed's report of a $1.5 billion decline in the nation's money supply in the latest reporting week. The Fed had tightened credit recently because the money supply was growing at an unacceptable rate because of income tax rebates. IBM reported its recession plagued second quarter earnings slipped to $3.14 a share from $3.28 a year ago. The stock gained 3 to 2073,4 in active trading following the news. Walt Disney, which sparked a market rally earlier this week by.reporting a record third quarter, gained 1 to 533^. Polaroid, which has predicted better than expected earnings, gained % to 39%. •"•..' Skyline Corp. led the Big Board actives, off % to 20i£ on 294,400 shares, including a block of 271,200 shares at 2014. Travelers Corp. followed, off 14 to 27% on 113,200 shares.
