Post No. 1,626 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 recent Dow 30 components' SEC filings.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Tuesday at 12,632 down 63.35 or 0.5% from Monday's close of 12,695.35.  Of the 30 Dow components 6 gained and 24 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise and percentage-wise was JPMorgan. The biggest decliner dollar-wise was Home Depot and percentage-wise was Hewlett-Packard.

As of the open of the market on Tuesday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C6 of  Tuesday's Wall St. Journal is 0.132129493. Tuesday's trailing P/E ratio is 13.99 down from   yesterday's trailing P/E ratio of 14.14 (year ago it was 14.37); today's P/E estimate is 12.11 unchanged from Monday's P/E estimate of 12.11 (year ago it was 12.74) and today's dividend yield is 2.60 down from yesterday's dividend yield of 2.35 (last year it was 2.35). 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.

Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,669.06 down 18.37 from Monday's closing numerator of 1,677.43. 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 decrease for today by the divisor (0.132129493) you get the decrease 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 Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $55.64 down $0.27 from Monday's average closing price of $55.91. The median closing price of Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $49.41 (DD/HD) down $1.03 from Monday's median closing price of $50.44. The lowest volume was 3M  and the highest volume again was Bank of America.

If Tuesday 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 lost $837 ($167,743 - $166,906).

MarketWatch Tuesday 4:25 by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks declined Tuesday, with the Dow industrials ending near a four-month low, as economic reports failed to deflect the latest breakdown in Greece’s attempts to form a coalition.“Today we had some good economic numbers, but worries over in euro land” hit the single currency, said Peter Cardillo, chief economist at Rockwell Gobal Capital. The euro’s fall helped propel the dollar to a four-month high as investors sought the perceived safety of the American currency over riskier assets, including equities and commodities.Finishing lower for a ninth out of the last 10 sessions, the Dow Jones Industrial Average  DJIA -0.50%  shed 63.35 points, or 0.5%, to 12,632.J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. / JPM +1.26%  rose 1.3% after Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said he did not envision the bank’s $2 billion trading loss impacting the bank’s dividend. Home Depot Inc.HD -2.43%  fell 2.4% after the home-improvement retailer’s revenue outlook missed estimates.Lisa Lindsley of AFSCME details the union's proposal at J.P. Morgan Chase's annual meeting, calling on the bank to adopt an independent board chairman who will provide improved oversight and risk management. The S&P 500 Index  SPX -0.57%  fell 7.69 points, or 0.6%, to 1,330.66, ending below a key technical support, Cardillo said.“If we close below 1,335 on the S&P, we could be headed for a more serious pullback than previously thought,” he said.TJX Cos. TJX +6.93%  rallied 6.9% after the off-price retailer reported increased quarterly profit that beat Wall Street’s estimates and hiked its 2012 outlook.The Nasdaq Composite Index COMP -0.30%  declined 8.82 points, or 0.3%, to 2,893.76.Decliners outpaced advancers nearly 2-to-1 on the New York Stock Exchange, where 869 million shares traded. Composite volume neared 4.1 billion.Wall Street is in the process of “wringing out the excess of overoptimism. Once we’ve done that, we can get back to looking at fundamentals with more realistic eyes, and there are some bright spots: the United States is holding up reasonably well,” said Bruce McCain, chief investment strategist at Key Private Bank.“People are reconciled to the fact that Greece is headed for some sort of cliff, but most feel it’s far enough out in the future that it’s an overhang,” he added.Greece’s president said the country would hold new elections as party leaders failed to reach agreement, with the upcoming balloting seen as a referendum on whether to remain in the euro.U.S. economic reports had retail sales up 0.1% in April, while consumer prices held flat. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s gauge of manufacturing activity in the region rebounded in May, while an index of home-builder sentiment rose to a post-recession high. 
Also, the Commerce Department reported business inventories rose 0.3% in March.

The following are excerpts from Tuesday morning's Blog:

A read of the print editions of Monday's Wall St. Journal, Financial Times, New York Times, USA Today  & Boston Globe 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 Monday's stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

Dow Jones Industrial AverageThe Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Monday at 12,695.35 down 125.25 or 0.98% from Friday's close of 12,820.6. For the year the Dow is up 3.9%. Of the 30 Dow components 2 gained and 28 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise were Cisco and Merck  and percentage-wise was Cisco. The biggest decliner dollar-wise was Caterpillar and percentage-wise was JPMorgan.

WSJ pC4 "Stocks extend losing streak" by Chris Dieterich says concerns about Greece's possible exit from the euro zone pushed US stocks to 3 month lows.  JPMorgan lost $1.17 & Bank of America lost 20 cents.

NYT pB9 "Shares fall on worries over Greece & JPMMorgan" by AP says the political stalemate in Greece rattled global fin'l markets Mon.

USA Today p4B "Stocks drop as fear factor over Europe's finances rises" by Bllomberg says the decline Mon was due to growing speculation Greece may leave the Euro zone.

Fin Times p24 "JPMorgan's $2bn trading loss continues to hamper stocks" by Arash Massoudi says JPMOrgan addded to an increasingly negative mood on Wall St as is shares fell as much as 3.3%.


Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,677.43 down 16.55 from Friday's closing numerator of 1,693.98. 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 decrease for today by the divisor (0.132129493) you get the decrease 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 $55.91 down $0.56 from Friday's average closing price of $56.47. The median closing price of Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $50.44 (DD/HD) down $0.52 from Friday's median closing price of $50.96. The lowest volume was 3M Technologies 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 lost $1,655 ($169,398 - $167,743).

MarketWatch Monday 4:15 by Laura Mandauro says U.S. stocks dropped sharply Monday, ending at their lowest levels in over three months, as investors dumped stocks on the prospects of a euro-zone break-up and a drop in financials after J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.'s  JPM -3.17% trading loss last week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.98% fell 125.25 points, or 1%, to 12,695.35, the eighth drop in nine sessions and the lowest close since Jan. 31. The S&P 500  SPX -1.11% fell 15.04 points, or 1.1%, to 1,338.35, the lowest since Feb. 2. The Nasdaq Composite  COMP -1.06% fell 31.24 points, or 1.1%, to 2,902.58. The likelihood Greece would have to call new elections, putting its rescue package and euro membership in jeopardy, stoked a rush to safehavens like the dollar and U.S. Treasurys on Monday.
