TEC sponsors employee seminar AUSTIN — Texas Employment Commissioner Mary Scott Nabers has announced the first of a series of half-day seminars to be conducted statewide in the coming months. The seminars, announced last week by Gov. Mark White and Commissioner Nabers, are aimed at helping Texas employers control unemployment tax costs. Con nissioner Nabers, the employer representative at T.E.C., said the project was a result of the numerous employer inquiries she has received since her recent appointment. “As a former employer, I ain well aware of the concern over rising tax costs. There are ways to reduce these costs. Employers have been asking for help and these seminars are our way out of responding to the requests,” she said. Gov. White, who appointed Nabers to the T.E.C. in December 1984, said, "Texas employers are the foundation of this state’s economic vitality.” He urged employers to take advantage of the seminars designed to cut the cost of doing business in Texas saying, "We can create an even more desirable business climate in this great state.” During the half-day seminars, Employment Commission representatives will discuss the laws and procedures concerning unemployment compensation taxes, ideas for immediate cost reduction. By STAN CUNNINGHAM Edward Jones Co. An old Wall Street broker once told me, "It’s a market of stocks, not a stock market.” It took some years and a little experience to understand that important distinction. Although the market as a whole may be up or down, any particular stock is valued on its own merit. Indirectly, however, all stocks are influenced by-market action. The daily stock market reflects the overall mood of the investment world. There are several yardsticks used to measure stock market activity. One widely-used index is Standard and Poor’s 500 Stock Index. The research firm of Standard and Poor’s assembled 500 stocks that represent all major industries in proportion to their representation on The New York Stock Exchange. At the end of each trading session, the market action of these 500 stocks is recorded and averaged. The results indicate the direction of the index. Another popular index is The New York Stock Exchange Common Stock Index. This is a composite index covering price movements of all common stocks listed on the "Big Board.” It is best explained by the NYSE: The Common Stock Index is based on the close of the market Dec. 31, 1965 as 50.00 and is weighted according to the number of shares listed for each issue. The index is computed continuously by the exchange’s market data system and printed on the ticker tape each half hour. Point changes in the index are converted to dollars and cents to provide a meaningful measure of changes in the average price of a listed stock " The third, and probably the most popular, is the Dow Jones Industrial Average, commonly referred to as "The Dow.” Years ago Dow Jones and Company, which publishes the Wall Street Journal, selected 30 blue-chip industrial stocks representing virtually every major industry in the U.S. These stocks became the standard of the market Through the years, stocks have been deleted from the original 30 replaced by others which better represent our changing from the original. stalled to help provide faster service.
