Wall Street was pulled in two directions with a bounce in crude prices boosting the Dow Jones Industrial Average and a selloff in Tesla (TSLA) dragging on the Nasdaq. The Dow has now closed at records for ten straight sessions in a row. Chinese social media stocks Weibo (WB) and its shareholder Sina (SINA) also weighed on the Nasdaq following their quarterly reports. Alibaba (BABA) , which also has a stake in Weibo, moved lower in sympathy. L Brands (LB) slumped after issuing weak guidance for fiscal 2017. The parent company of Victoria's Secret also said it expects same-store sales in February to decline in the mid-to-high teens. Kohl's (KSS) exceeded quarterly estimates and met full-year profit expectations. Kohl's said it saw declines in brick-and-mortar traffic over the holiday season, though online demand countered some of that drag.
