Dow Jones Falls As China Trade War Trumps Fed Chief Powell; Target, Home Depot, Salesforce Rise On Earnings: Weekly Review

The Dow Jones suffered a fourth straight weekly loss as Beijing issued retaliatory tariffs Friday and President Donald Trump vowed to escalate the China trade war further. That offset Fed chief Jerome Powell, who signaled support for another rate cut despite a divided central bank. Target (TGT) skyrocketed on earnings, while Home Depot (HD), Salesforce (CRM) and Medtronic (MDT) also rallied.XDow Jones Falls On China Trade WarThe Dow Jones and other major averages were on track for modest weekly gains until China announced retaliatory tariffs Friday and President Trump vowed to respond. That offset a fairly dovish speech by Fed chief Jerome Powell. The Dow Jones and other index closed with yet another weekly loss. Target (TGT) blasted to a new high on strong earnings. Salesforce (CRM) and Medtronic (MDT) also popped on results. So did Dow Jones component Home Depot (HD), despite mixed results and weak guidance. Treasury yields tumbled on the escalating China trade war after the yield curve inverted briefly a couple more times.Fed Chief Powell Cites 'Global Slowdown'Fed chief Jerome Powell highlighted "further evidence of a global slowdown" and intensified trade frictions in his much-anticipated Jackson Hole, Wyo., speech. Powell didn't explicitly call for further rate cuts, leaving some question about the policy outlook after several Fed committee members said they back standing pat. Yet China's escalation of tariffs on U.S. imports shortly before Powell's speech and Trump's retaliation vow took some pressure off the Fed chairman to sway a divided central bank.Powell left little doubt where he stands, though. His speech focused on fundamentals that all raise concerns: "slowing global growth, trade policy uncertainty, and muted inflation." While only the first two have worsened in recent weeks, the third, muted inflation, raises "concerns about a more prolonged shortfall." Powell summed up with this assessment that argues for proactive policy: "We face heightened risks of lengthy, difficult-to-escape periods in which our policy interest rate is pinned near zero."Target Earnings Jump On TransformationTarget surged 23%, flying above the buy zone after the discount giant reported its best earnings growth in years, soundly beating views, as its transformation strategy begins to bear fruit.

Initiatives include private brands, remodels, small-format stores, digital sales, delivery via Shipt, supply chain upgrades, the Circle loyalty program, Target+ marketplace and self-checkout.Home Depot Breaks OutHome Depot (HD) beat earnings views but missed on revenue and same-store sales. The home improvement retailer also trimmed its full-year revenue guidance due to lumber price deflation and recently announced Trump tariffs on China. But the stock still rallied and surged further, hitting buy range after rival Lowe's (LOW) topped estimates for earnings, revenue and comp sales. Lowe's shares soared. Home Depot fell back below a buy point Friday.Software Earnings, DealsVMware (VMW) reported in-line Q2 earnings while guidance met expectations.
