Stock Market Today: An Apple Downgrade And A Twitter Upgrade

Expect a weak start to the stock market today, as the Dow http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-929213 https://google.com/+Theelevationgroup/ Jones Industrial Average is set to fall by 41 points to begin the new trading year. The Dow ended 2013 with a total of 51 record-high closes, and while there's no telling how stocks will behave this year, signs are pointing to a sharply improving economy. For example, the unemployment rate is expected to keep falling, reaching as low as 6.5% in 2014. And consumer spending also looks primed to rise as home prices improve and energy costs continue dropping.
