The Dow's record-breaking streak was in jeopardy to begin the week. The blue-chip index ended Friday with its eighth record close in a row. Broader markets were under pressure as a selloff in crude oil weighed on the energy sector. United Technologies Corp. (UTX) was the biggest weight on the Dow, declining on reports it could make a play for Rockwell Collins Inc. United has a market cap of roughly $97 billion, while Rockwell sits at just over $19 billion. Tyson Foods Inc. (TSN) rose after topping third-quarter estimates and guiding for an in-line full year. Strength in its beef and pork segments led to a nearly 5% increase in sales over its recent quarter. Netflix Inc. (NFLX) announced that it had bought comic book publisher Millarworld, its first acquisition in its history. Millarworld is the company behind popular titles including Kick-Ass and Kingsman. Netflix did not detail the costs of the deal.
