Stocks are a bit down today, following a rise since the election. Christopher Low, chief economist at FTN Financial, discusses whether investors are being more realistic. We’ll also look at JC Penney’s efforts to fight against the slump department stores are experiencing, and explore Indiana’s plan to use drones in search and rescue efforts.
