The selloff in Walt Disney Co.'s stock in premarket trade Wednesday can be blamed for the Dow industrials futures' early weakness. The entertainment company's stock slumped $5.68, or 5.3%, after the company reported late Tuesday second-quarter revenue that missed expectations, and said it would end its distribution deal with Netflix Inc. . That price decline would shave about 39 points off the Dow Jones Industrial Average's price , while Dow futures were shedding 29 points. With all 30 of the Dow's components trading premarket--20 components were declining-- Disney's stock was by far the biggest percentage loser. The second biggest was Microsoft Corp.'s stock , which slipped 1%. The biggest gainer was DuPont & Co.'s stock , which tacked on 1%.
