Of the 2000 points the Dow Industrials have risen so far this year, more than a quarter came from the surge of a single company — Boeing, whose shares are up 53% in 2017. That Boeing juggernaut has contributed about 580 points to the Dow's 2017 rise, per the WSJ's Justin Lahart.

  • The Dow pushed through the symbolic 22,000 barrier today, carried by a 6.9% rise in Apple's shares that added 60 points to the index of the biggest 30 industrial companies.
  • Apple — with a 35% overall share price increase so far in 2017 — is also responsible for about 350 of the Dow's approximately 2000-point rise.
  • McDonald's shares — up 29% this year — have contributed 227 points to the Dow surge.

This has happened for three consecutive administrations: President Donald Trump has made the stock surge a standard feature of his tweets and stump speeches, boasting in one sample tweet that we are watching the "highest stock market EVER." But in a post today, Axios' Dan Primack notes that former presidents George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama had better S&P500 stock performance in their first six months in office.

Americans and U.S. companies will be banned from making transactions with ByteDance, the Chinese owner of TikTok, in 45 days, according to a new executive order President Trump issued Thursday evening.

The big picture: Last week Trump announced his intention to ban TikTok but said he'd leave a 45-day period for Microsoft or other U.S.-based suitors to try to close a deal to acquire the popular video-sharing app.
