The Dow Jones Industrial Average's record-breaking seven-day streak came to a quiet end on Thursday as a mix of earnings came in weaker than expected. A selloff in crude also pressured markets with West Texas Intermediate ending the session under $45 a barrel. eBay (EBAY) soared to a record high after exceeding quarterly estimates and boosting its share repurchase program. The auction site enjoyed its second straight quarter of sales growth. eBay also raised its full-year guidance. Joy Global (JOY) surged after Japanese construction company Komatsu agreed to an acquisition. Komatsu will purchase the mining-equipment developer for a roughly 18 percent premium to its Wednesday close. Kinder Morgan (KMI) sank after reporting a mixed second quarter. The oil company also left its dividend steady.
