Post No. 1,594 The following is brought to you by Intellivest Securities Research, Inc. Toward the end of this Blog is a list of the Dow 30 current CEOs, and a ranking of the Dow 30 components by market capitalization and Dow 30 components' SEC filings as of April 15, 2012.

A read of the print editions of Thursday's Wall St. Journal, Financial Times, Investor's Business Daily, New York Times, USA Today, Atlanta Journal Constitution & Daily Report (Ga. - carries Bloomberg) yielded the following stories about Dow Jones Industrial Average 30 component companies and the Dow with stories about the Dow aggregated first and then items about Dow Jones Industrial Average 30 companies presented alphabetically, followed by a separate table of Dow component's symbol and Wednesday's stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

Dow Jones Industrial Average The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Wednesday at 13,090.72 up 89.16 or 0.69% from Wednesday's close of 13,001.56. Of the 30 Dow components 23 gained and 7 declined. For the year the Dow is up7.15 %. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was  and percentage-wise was Bank of America. The biggest decliner dollar-wise and percentage-wise was Caterpillar.

WSJ pC4 "Apple makes nasdaq's day" by Jon Cheng says surging shres of Apple & dovish words from Bernanke drove US stocks higher for a 2nd day and propelled the Nasdaq Composite to its biggest gain this year.  Apple's market cap surged $50 bil.  Caterpillar fell $4.96 after it reported 1Q earnings that beat expectations but rev fell short.  Boeing led the Dow's gains rising $3.87 after it had 1Q results that beat estimates and raised its full year earnings outlook.  Codexis had a new process approved that it co-developed to manufacture an ingredient for Merck's Januvia diabetes drug.

USA Today p4B "Stocks surge on Apple profit, assurances from Bernanke" by Bllomberg says Apple's doubled earning helped nasdaq as did Bernanke's statement that is will do more to stimulate growth.. Same article at NYT pB11 "Strong profits on Wall St., and markets move higher".

Fin Times p24 "Apple results sweeten nasdaq's gains after net income jumps 93%" by Arash Massoudi says excitement for Apple lifted nasdaq while elsewhere Boeing had stronger than expected resutls while Caterpillar dropped more than 4.5% and Coke recommended a stock split.

As of the open of the market on Thursday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5 of Thursday's Wall St. Journal is 0.132129493. Thursday's trailing P/E ratio is 14.58 down from yesterday's trailing P/E ratio of 14.60 (year ago it was 14.80); today's P/E estimate is 12.32 unchanged from Wednesday's P/E estimate of 12.32 (year ago it was 12.68) and today's dividend yield is 2.50 down from yesterday's dividend yield of 2.52 (last year it was 2.34). The Dow's all-time high was 14,164.53 on Oct. 9, 2007. The 12 year low close for the Dow was on March 9, 2009 when it fell to 6,547.05.

Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,729.66 up 11.94 from Tuesday's closing numerator of 1,717.88. This is the sum of all 30 closing prices. A short cut to the Dow numerator is to multiply the closing Dow by the Divisor. Now, if you divide the Dow numerator increase for today by the divisor (0.132129493) you get the increase in today's Dow. A $1 change in the price of any DJIA stock = a 7.57 change in the average.The average closing price (the closing numerator divided by 30) of Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $57.66 up $0.39 from Tuesday's average closing price of $57.27. The median closing price of Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $52.86 (DD/HD) u p$0.90 from Tuesday's median closing price of $51.96. The lowest volume was United Technologies and the highest volume again was Bank of America.
If Wednesday morning before the market opened you had purchased 100 shares of each of the Dow Jones Industrial Average 30 shares (assuming you could buy fractional shares and assuming no transaction costs) and sold at the close you would have made $922 ($171,788 - $170,805.91 ).
MarketWatch Wednesday 4/25/12 5:01 pm by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks extended gains into a second day Wednesday as investors applauded Apple Inc.’s earnings and offered muted reaction to the Federal Reserve’s decision to leave its monetary policy unchanged.Major indexes retained much of the day’s advance as Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke told reporters that the central bank was comfortable keeping monetary policy “highly accommodative” given economic growth was likely to remain moderate. The central bank stood pat on interest rates as expected and said economic growth would pick up gradually. “As expected, they really did manage to straddle the fence in their commentary, so we’re [the Fed] going to keep doing what we’re doing. It’s like the end of a ‘Batman’ show — tune in next time,” said Derrick Irwin, portfolio manager for Wells Fargo Advantage Funds.
The S&P 500 Index SPX +1.36%  added 18.72 points, or 1.4%, to 1,390.69. The tech sector led gains, surging 3.2%; all 10 industry sectors were higher. The Nasdaq Composite Index COMP +2.30%  surged 68.03 points, or 2.3%, to 3,029.63, its first close above 3,000 since Friday. For every stock slipping, roughly three gained on the New York Stock Exchange, where 823 million shares traded hands. NYSE composite volume was just under 4 billion, above its past month average. Shares of Apple AAPL +8.87% jumped 8.9%, breaking a five-day losing streak as a number of brokerages raised their price targets a day after the iPhone and iPad maker reported a quarterly profit that blew out expectations.“Apple’s huge positive revenue and earnings surprise should have a ‘halo’ effect over the stock market for at least one trading session,” wrote Fred Dickson, chief investment strategist at Davidson Cos., in a note. “If nothing else, Apple’s astonishing fundamental performance over the last two years strongly suggests consumers will buy outstanding products even at very high prices.” On the New York Mercantile Exchange, oil prices CLM2 -0.07%   climbed 57 cents to $104.12 a barrel. Gold futures GCM2 +0.06%   shed $1.50 at $1,642.30 an ounce. The dollar DXY -0.08% fell against other major currencies including the euro EURUSD +0.1054% , while Treasury prices were mixed, with the 10-year note yield 10_YEAR -0.15%  lately at 1.984%.Ahead of the open, the government reported orders for long-lasting American goods declined in March by the most in three years.
