Post No. 1,597 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.

 The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Friday at 13,228.31 up 23.69 or 0.18% from Thursday's close of 13,204.62.  For the week the Dow is up 199.05 points or  1.53% from last Friday's close of 13,029.26.  Of the 30 Dow components 19 gained and 11declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise McDonald's was  and percentage-wise wasCisco . The biggest decliner dollar-wise and percentage-wise was Procter & Gamble.

As of the open of the market on Friday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5 of Thursday's Wall St. Journal is 0.132129493. Friday's trailing P/E ratio is 14.75 up from yesterday's trailing P/E ratio of 14.60 (year ago it was 14.86); 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 2.51 up 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.

Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,747.85 up 3.13  from Thursday's closing numerator of 1,744.72. 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 Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $58.26 up $0.10 from Thursday's average closing price of $58.16. The median closing price of Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $52.84 (DD/HD) up$0.03  from Thursday's median closing price of $52.81. The lowest volume was3M and the highest volume again was Bank of America.

If Friday 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 $313 ($174,785 - $174,472 ).

 MarketWatch Fri. 4:16  by Laura Mandaro says US stocks U.S. stocks closed moderately higher Friday, rounding out an earnings-filled week with 5-day gains of about 2%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +0.18% rose 23.69 points, or 0.2%, to 13,228.31. It added 1.5% for the week, its second straight weekly rise. The S&P 500 SPX +0.24% rose 3.38 points, or 0.2%, to 1,403.36 for a weekly gain of 1.8%. The Nasdaq Composite  COMP +0.61% added 18.59 points, or 0.6%, to 3,069.20. It rose 2.3% for the week. Quarterly results from Apple, Inc. AAPL -0.77% , Amazon Inc. AMZN +15.75% and Boeing Co. BA +0.36% -- plus a slew of other companies -- helped propel stocks higher this week.

MarketWatch Wednesday 4/26/12 4:50 pm by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks extended gains into a third day Thursday as better-than-expected data on housing and an upbeat forecast from Citrix Systems Inc. helped lift the S&P 500 Index above 1,400 for the first time in three weeks.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +0.87%  added 113.90 points, or 0.9%, to 13,204.62, with the blue-chip index up 1.4% so far for the week. Of the 51% of the S&P 500 companies that have reported first-quarter results so far, 72.4% have reported earnings above expectations, 11.8% reported earnings in line with expectations and 15.7% reported earnings below estimates, according to Thomson Reuters analyst Greg Harrison.

“A lot of people are talking about beating, but nobody is talking about the recent phenomena of companies actually starting to raise guidance after two quarters of lowering,” said Jeffrey Saut, chief investment strategist at Raymond James and Associates.

Ahead 1.6% from last Friday’s close, the S&P 500 Index SPX +0.67%  gained 9.29 points, or 0.7%, to 1,399.98 and rising as high as 1,402.09 intraday. It was the index’s first time above 1,400 since April 5.

Telecommunications, followed by consumer-discretionary stocks such as home builders, rallied the most among 10 industry groups. Only materials and health care fell. Leading gains on the S&P, Citrix Systems CTXS +12.43%  rose more than 12% after the software maker projected 2012 earnings that beat estimates. The Nasdaq Composite Index COMP +0.69%  rose 20.98 points, or 0.7%, to 3,050.61, up 1.7% so far for the week. It was the third straight day of gains for the Dow industrials and S&P 500, and the second for the Nasdaq. After a tepid start, stocks picked up a bit of steam after the National Association of Realtors reported its index of pending home sales climbed 4.1% in March to a two-year high. Results from PulteGroup Inc. PHM +10.11%  also boosted housing-related shares, with the builder reporting less of a quarterly loss than Wall Street expected, its losses narrowing on improving home-sale prices. Pulte shares rallied 10% and Lennar Corp.LEN +5.71%  gained 5.7%.For every stock falling, more than two gained on the New York Stock Exchange, where 780 million shares traded. NYSE composite volume was just under 4 billion, while Nasdaq volume was more than 1.7 billion. The dollar DXY -0.04%  dipped against most major currencies. Crude for June delivery CLM2 +0.11%  gained 43 cents to end at $104.55 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, and gold futures for June delivery GCM2 +0.92% advanced $18.20, or 1.1%, to finish at $1,660.50 an ounce on the Comex in New York.Treasury prices gained, with the 10-year note 10_YEAR -1.96%  yield used in determining rates on many consumer loans falling to 1.962%. Weekly jobless claims came in virtually unchanged.
