Post No. 1,556 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 recent ranking of the Dow 30 components by market capitalization and Dow 30 components' recent SEC filings.

A read of the print editions of Tues Wall St. Journal, Financial Times, Investor's Business Daily, New York Times, USA Today, Atlanta Journal Constitution and 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 symbol and Monday's stock prices and related data.

Dow Jones Industrial AverageThe Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Monday at 13,264.49 up 52.45 or 0.4% from Friday's close of 13,212.04. For the year the Dow is up 8.57%. Of the 30 Dow components 26 gained and 4 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was Chevron and percentage-wise was Alcoa. The biggest decliner dollar-wise and percentage-wise was Home Depot.

WSJ pC4 "Stocks resume their strong ride" by Matt Jarzemsky says stocks rose to multiyer highs on the first session of the new quarter after a solid reading on domestic manufacturing.

Fin Times p24 "Groupon falls out of favour afte restatement of revenue figures" by Arash massoudi says shares in Groupon sunk by 17% yesterday as investors reacted to a restatement of revenue.

NYT pB8 "Major indexes rise on Manufacturing data" by Boomberg and USA Today p4B "Stronger than expected growth in manufacturing helps stocks" by Bloomberg say stocks rose Mon sending he Dow to its highest level since Dec '07 on stronger than forecast growth in manufacturing.

Inv. Bus. Daily pA1 "Stocks extend Q1 gains, although volume drops' by Vincent Mao says stocks rebounded from a soft start & finished higher Mon as the quarter began. Monday's action was up in lower trade as the current outlook is uptrend under pressure.

As of the open of the market on Tuesday, the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5 of Tuesday's Wall St. Journal is 0.132129493. Tuesday's trailing P/E ratio is 14.84 up from yesterday's trailing P/E ratio of 14.79 (year ago it was 15.04); today's P/E estimate is 12.63 unchanged from Monday's P/E estimate of 12.63 (year ago it was 12.75) and today's dividend yield is 2.46 down from yesterday's dividend yield of 2.47 (last year it was 2.36). 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.

Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,752.62 up 6.92 from Friday's closing numerator of 1,745.70. 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 Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $58.42 up $0.23 from Friday's average closing price of $58.19. The median closing price of Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $51.69 (DD/HD) down $0.34 from Friday's median closing price of $51.35. The lowest volume was Travelers3M and the highest volume again was Bank of America.

If Monday 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 $692 ($175,260 - $174,570).

MarketWatch Monday 4/2/12 5:11 pm by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks rose Monday after a gauge of national manufacturing improved, stretching Wall Street’s best three-month start since 1998 into the second quarter. “The reports out today are seen as moderately positive,” said Randy Frederick, managing director of active trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab. “The market is looking ahead six to 18 months from now, and the expectation is the economy is going to be solid.” U.S. stock investors gave 2012 a powerful, profitable opening to rival any Hollywood blockbuster. But we’ve seen this movie before. The Institute for Supply Management’s factory index rose to 53.4% last month from 52.4% in February. Read more about U.S. manufacturing data. “We have U.S. economic data that continue to be strong, as shown by the ISM number today before we kick off earnings next week,” said Art Hogan, a managing director and equity strategist at Lazard Capital Markets. Separately, the Commerce Department said construction spending fell 1.1% in February versus expectations of a 0.7% gain. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +0.40% added 52.45 points, or 0.4%, to 13,264.49, with 26 of its 30 components rising, led by Bank of America Corp. BAC +1.15% The S&P 500 Index SPX +0.75% gained 10.43 points, or 0.7%, to 1,418.90, with natural-resource companies faring best among its 10 industry groups. Avon Products Inc. AVP +17.25% leapt 17% to $22.70 a share, the best performer on the S&P 500, after the direct seller of cosmetics said it rejected a bid of about $10 billion, or $23.25 a share, from beauty-products supplier Coty Inc. Read more about Avon rejecting Coty’s bid. Off the index, Groupon Inc. GRPN -16.89% shares slid nearly 17% after the online-coupon company said late Friday that it would revise first-quarter results after realizing it had not set aside enough cash to cover customer refunds. The Nasdaq Composite Index COMP +0.91% rose 28.13 points, or 0.9%, to 3,119.70.For every stock declining, roughly three gained on the New York Stock Exchange, where 763 million shares traded. NYSE composite volume was more than 3.4 billion, also extending the prior quarter’s low-volume trend. Read more on how the stock market's rise left many behind. Wall Street on Friday capped a stellar start to the year, with the S&P 500 up 12% for the first three months, the index’s best first quarter since 1998. “In general, we have a marketplace after a tremendous first quarter that continues to grind higher, and has left a lot of investors on the sidelines waiting for a pullback,” Hogan added. But “every 1% pullback is met with buyers.”
People tend to call for a market correction when you have “a market that just goes up, up and up. But it’s a little narrow-minded to think just because things are going up there has to be a pullback,” observed Frederick, who believes any move down of 5% or more would need a catalyst. On Monday, Treasury prices advanced, with the yield on the 10-year-note 10_YEAR -0.09% used in determining consumer loans and other mortgages falling to 2.183%. Commodities recovered as the U.S. data helped ease worry about the global economy that came with reports showing manufacturing contracting and unemployment rising in Europe. Crude futures rose $2.21, or 2.2%, to settle at $105.23 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange; gold futures for June delivery GCM2 +0.36% rose $7.80, or 0.5%, to finish at $1,679.70 an ounce on the Comex division of the Nymex. The dollar DXY -0.11% edged lower against other currencies including the Japanese yen USDJPY -0.01% .
