This Dow Stock Is Soaring After Hours Tuesday

Losses for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI), S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC), and Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC) were relatively small at roughly half a percent, but it still came as somewhat of a blow to investor confidence to see a lack of follow-through from prior big gains. Shares of Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) rose sharply in after-hours trading, as the blue chip software-as-a-service company reported its latest financial results. After seeing so many stocks lose ground despite strong business results in their quarterly reports, investors were happy to see Salesforce climbing, even as it faces some of the same challenges as companies across the tech industry.
