12/21/12 Fri. am Merck's Drug Fails

Post No. 1,960 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 as of 12/7/12 and recent Dow 30 components' SEC filings as of 12/7/12.

A read of the print editions of  Friday's Wall St. Journal, Financial Times, Investor's Business Daily, New York Times &amp, USA Today, Atlanta Journal Constituion 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 a separate table of Dow component's symbol and Thursday's stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

Dow Jones Average:The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Thursday at 13,311.72 up 59.75 or 0.45% from Wednesday's close of 13,251.97. For the year the Dow is up 8.98%.  Of the Dow components 25 gained and 5 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was 3M up $1.11 and percentage-wise was Bank of America up 2.95%. The biggest decliner dollar-wise was Caterpillar down $1.29  and percentage-wise was Merck down 3.44%.

WSJ pC4 "Stocks make late run after a day of gridlock" by Kaitlyn Kiernan et al says fin'l stocks led markets higher after a number of positive economic readings.  Bank of America was up 33 cents.

NYT pB11 "Wall St. gains despite budget ipasse" by Reuters says global shares rose Thurs as lawmakers in DC cont'd in their negotiations but gold prices tumbled to their lowest level since Aug on a burst of year end seling.

IBD pB2 "Stocks stay in calm mode, add gains in tame trade" by Paul Whitfield says stocks bounced off morning lows Thurs to finish positive for the day as the fiscal talks in DC remained stall.  Thursday's action was up in declining vol while the current outlook is still a confirmed uptrend.

As of the open of the market on Friday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C6 of Thursday's Wall St. Journal is 0.130216081. Friday's trailing P/E ratio is 14.76 down from yesterday's trailing P/E ratio of 14.72 (year ago it was 13.16); today's P/E estimate is 12.59 unchanged from Thursday' s P/E estimate of 12.59 (year ago it was 12.20) and today's dividend yield is 2.61 down from yesterday's dividend yield of 2.62 (last year it was 2.61). 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.

Thursday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,733.40 up 7.78 from Wednesday's closing numerator of 1,725.62. 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 (0.130216081) you get the increase in today's Dow. A dollar increase or decrease in a Dow stock results in a $7.68 change in the Dow Index.

The average closing price (the closing numerator divided by 30) of Thursday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $57.78 up 26 cents from Wednesday's average of $57.52. The median closing price of Thursday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $53.20 (DIS/UNH) up 98 cents from Wednesday's median closing price of $52.22. The lowest volume was Travelers and the highest volume again was Bank of America.

If Thursday 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 or dividends) and sold at the close you would have made $778 ($173,340 - $173,851).

Thursday's 12/20/12 MarketWatch 4:25  pm by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks rose on Thursday as Republican House Speaker John Boehner expressed optimism about reaching a budget deal with President Barack Obama.Boehner told an afternoon news conference that he planned to continue working with Obama, even as the Ohio Republican pushed a vote on his plan to limit prospective tax hikes to incomes of more than $1 million.“Maybe the conciliatory aspect is what the market is biting on, perhaps there is more openness to this being a negotiating tool rather than a final step,” said Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott.The White House made a key concession this week in 'Fiscal Cliff' negotiations: proposing to allow the payroll tax cut to expire on Jan. 1, potentially driving up payroll taxes by 2%.“I still think there is a good chance that we have something that is agreed to by the 31st of December, maybe absent some detail, but one where we can in fact go into the beginning of the year with a framework for discussion,” Luschini added. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +0.45%  rose 59.75 points, or 0.5%, to end at 13,311.72, with Bank of America Corp. BAC +2.95%  up 3% and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. JPM +2.30%  up 2.3%.The S&P 500 index SPX +0.55%  rose 7.88 points, or 0.6%, to 1,443.69, with financials leading gains among its 10 major industry groups. IntercontinentalExchange Inc. ICE +1.40%  said it would acquire NYSE Euronext Inc. NYX +34.10% for $8.2 billion in stock and cash. Shares of NYSE Euronext rallied 34%, making the company the top gainer in the S&P 500. 
The technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite index COMP +0.20%  added 6.02 points, or 0.2%, to 3,050.39. Around 682 million shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Composite volume topped 3.6 billion.Eric Cantor, the No. 2 GOP leader in the House, told reporters Republicans have the votes to pass what Boehner dubbed his “Plan B,” a proposal to extend Bush-era tax cuts for most Americans and replace automatic spending cuts for the military with reduced spending on food stamps and other domestic programs. “Absent a balanced offer from the president, this is our nation’s best offer,” House Majority Leader Cantor of Virginia said of the proposal, with the House waiting until Thursday evening for a vote on the plan.“If he [Boehner] had the votes, it would [have been] this afternoon. I’m not saying it won’t pass, but he needs extra time to whip things up,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at BTIG LLC.                                    
“It’s a symbolic thing,” Greenhaus added of the proposal, which Obama has said he would veto should it pass. Congressional Democrats have labeled it a waste of time, saying it would not accomplish anything other than to make a political statement as the fiscal cliff draws closer.Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the Senate would not take up the GOP plan, with the Nevada Democrat calling Republican proposals “nonstarters” in the Senate.On Wednesday, stocks fell sharply, halting a two-day rally, as the rhetoric between the White House and Republican leaders grew more heated.“Clearly the odds of a deal have gone down, at least based on public statements, but the bias is still for a deal to be done,” Greenhaus said of efforts to avert steep spending cuts and tax hikes slated to start in January that economists generally agree would push the economy into recession.Positive economic reports out Thursday held little interest for Wall Street.“We do care, but we don’t care. It doesn’t matter at the moment in the context of what is going on with the fiscal cliff. We know the story on the economic side, and we know the story on the stock-market side. It’s the Washington side we’re waiting to hear from,” said Greenhaus.In economic news, existing-home sales rose 5.9% in November to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.04 million, reaching the highest rate since November 2009.The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s index of manufacturing activity climbed to an eight-month high in December. “Everything is shrouded in this fiscal-cliff issue, but the fact of the matter is today’s data was actually pretty good. The Philly Fed was positive and the housing data looks good, and is really building into being a green shoot for 2013,” Janney Montgomery Scott’s Luschini said.Ahead of the opening bell, data showed that weekly jobless claims rose 17,000 to 361,000 and growth in third-quarter gross domestic product was revised up to 3.1%. Noting that the four-week average of initial claims was back near lows not seen since the spring of 2008, Miller Tabak equity strategist Peter Boockvar said the data point to a labor market that “continues to improve but at a still lackluster pace.”“Certainly the fiscal negotiations in D.C. and the cloudy visibility that comes with them, have impacted business decision-making,” he added.
