2/12/13 Tues. pm Dow Closes at 14,018.7 up 47.46 or 0.34%

http://www.dowjonesmonitor.com/

Post No. 2,043 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 recent Dow 30 components' SEC filings.

 The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed tuesday at 14,018.7 up 47.46 or 0.34%  from Monday's close of 13,971.24. Of the Dow components 14  gained, Walmart was unchanged and 5 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was Home Depot up 94  cents and percentage-wise was Bank of America up 3.25%. The biggest decliner dollar-wise  and percentage-wise was Coca-Cola  down $1.05 or 2.72%.


As of the open of the market on Tuesay the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5  of Tuesday's Wall St. Journal is 0.130216081. Tuesday's  trailing P/E ratio is 15.26 down from  yesterday's opening trailing P/E ratio of 15.41 (year ago it was 14.36); today's P/E estimate is 12.54 unchanged from Monday' s P/E estimate of 12.54 (year ago it was 12.26) and today's opening dividend yield is 2.48 down from yesterday's opening dividend yield of 2.57 (last year it was 2.50). 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 1,825.46 up 6.18    from Monday's closing numerator of 1,819.28. 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 decrease 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 Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $60.85 up 21 cents from yesterday's average of $60.64. The median closing price of Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $55.98 (DIS/UNH) up 4 cents from yesterday's median closing price of $55.94. The lowest volume was Travelers and the highest volume again was Bank of America.

If Tuesay 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 $618 ($182,546 - $181,928 ).

MarketWatch Tuesday 2/12/13 5:01  by Wallace Witkowski & Polya Lesova says U.S. stocks
pushed against resistance levels Tuesday as blue chips, led by the financial sector, closed at levels not seen in more than five years. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +0.34%  rose 47.46 points, or 0.3%, to close at 14,018.70, with 23 of 30 components finishing in positive territory. Tuesday’s close is the best since Oct. 12, 2007, and 1% off its record close of 14,164.53, set on Oct. 9, 2007. The index hit an intraday high of 14,038.97 on Tuesday. Wall Street Journal’s Paul Vigna reports traders have a wary eye on President Obama's agenda he'll lay out in his State of the Union address.
Financial stocks boosted blue chips with Bank of America Corp. BAC +0.20%   leading the way with a 3.3% gain. Shares of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. JPM +0.99%  rose 1%, Travelers Cos. TRV +0.87%  advanced 0.9%, and American Express Co. AXP +0.35%   closed 0.4% higher. Coca-Cola Co. KO -2.72%  was the worst performer on the Dow industrials, declining 2.7%, after the beverage giant’s quarterly revenue growth came in below analyst estimates. The S&P 500 index SPX +0.16%  advanced 2.42 points, or 0.2%, to 1,519.43, with technology the biggest decliner and financials the top gainer among the 10 major industry groups. The Nasdaq Composite Index COMP -0.17% , after a brief swing into positive territory, closed down 5.51 points, or 0.2%, at 3,186.49. Apple Inc. AAPL -2.51%  shares ended near their lows of the session, down 2.5% at $467.90. The iPhone maker presented at a Goldman Sachs investment conference in San Francisco. Apple CEO Tim Cook told investors at the conference that the company did not plan to wage a proxy battle against hedge-fund manager David Einhorn over a proposal to issue preferred stock. Also in the tech sector, shares of Facebook Inc. FB -3.15%  fell 3.2%.The stock market is undergoing an epic struggle right now, having been in a secular bear market for the past 13 years, said Marty Leclerc, principal at Barrack Yard Advisors. With the stock market at multiyear highs, and multiyear resistance levels, we would need another 30% rally over the next year to break out of the bear market, he said. “We do think it’s a dangerous tipping point,” Leclerc said. “Either the market will go up 30% in the next year or we’ll have a 20% to 25% decline from these levels.” Advancers outnumbered decliners about 2 to 1 on the NYSE, and 14 to 9 on the Nasdaq. Composite volume was 3.31 billion shares on the NYSE and 1.77 billion for Nasdaq-listed stocks. Volume was well above that of Friday and Monday, when trading levels were their lightest of the year to date. It was a busy day for Fed officials. Federal Reserve voting member Esther George, the lone “no” vote at the central bank’s meeting last month, said the U.S. economy is being put at risk when the Fed begins to sell the very securities it is buying. Also, Atlanta Fed’s Dennis Lockhart said in Madrid that 2013 will not be a breakout year for the U.S. economy. After the market close on Tuesday evening, President Barack Obama will deliver the State of the Union address. “The markets want to see if there is anything new for the direction of the country and the economy,” said Adam Sarhan, chief executive of New York-based Sarhan Capital.
“The pullbacks we’ve seen so far have been very, very mild and that in and of itself is healthy because it shows that sellers are nowhere to be seen. And it shows buyers are still clearly in control of this market,” Sarhan said. On the corporate front, shares of Michael Kors Holdings Ltd.   jumped nearly 9% as the company reported a surge in fiscal third-quarter earnings helped by sharply higher same-store sales.

The following are excerpts from Tues. morning's Blog:

A read of the print editions of Tuesday'sWall  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 Monday's stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

Dow Jones Industrial Average:  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Monday at 13,971.24 down 21.73 or 0.16% from Friday's close of 13,992.97. For the year the Dow is up 6.62%. Of the Dow components 13  gained, Chevron was unchanged and 16 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was and percentage-wise was Microsoft up 31 cents or 1.13%. The biggest decliner dollar-wise was IBM down $1.52  and percentage-wise was Home Depot down 94%.

WSJ pC4 "Energy sector leads modest index decliens" by matt jarzemsky, Kaitlyn Kiernan says a pullback in energy stocks, one of the strongest performing sectors this year, pushed the indexes lower.

IBD pB2 "Major averages cook off as volume takes a dive" by Vincent Mao says stocks took a small step back Mon from their 6week advance as Monday's action saw stocks ease in lower trade and the current outlook is a confirmed uptrend.

NYT pB5 "Wall St edges back from its 6 week rally" by AP, AJC pA9 "S&P continues to fall" say US stocks drifted lower in thin trading Mon pulling the S&P back from a 5 year high.  With little in the way of news, 7 of the 10 S&P groups edged down.

FT p22 "Investors discover little to like about oil exploration sector" by Anora Mahmudova says US equity markets finished the frist day of the weak marginally lower after trading in a narrow 3 point band as traders awaited for news from the forthcoming G20 meeting as well more earnings & economic data.


 Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,819.28 down 2.83    from Friday's closing numerator of 1,822.11. 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 Monday by the divisor (0.130216081) you get the decrease in Friday'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 Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $60.64 down 10 cents from Friday's average of $60.74. The median closing price of Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $55.94 (DIS/UNH) down 24 cents from Friday's median closing price of $56.18. The lowest volume was Travelers 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 or dividends) and sold at the close you would have lost $283 ($182,211 - $181,928).

MarketWatch Monday 2/11/13 5:02 by Wallace Witkowski & Polya Lesova says U.S. stocks finished slightly lower Monday on the lightest volume trading day of 2013, as energy and retail shares underperformed and investors reassessed a rally that’s lifted benchmark indexes 6% this year.
President Obama will give his State of the Union address on Tuesday, and later in the week, G20 leaders convene in Moscow. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA-0.16% never rose above its Friday close and ended down 21.73 points, or 0.2%, to finish at 13,971.24, with 16 of its 30 components ending down. The index traded within a narrow 53-point range throughout the session.
On the Dow, shares of Home Depot Inc. HD -0.94% and UnitedHealth Group Inc. UNH-1.07% led the decline, falling about 1%. Shares of blue-chips Microsoft Corp. /MSFT+1.13% and Pfizer Inc. PFE+0.97% gained about 1%. The S&P 500 Index SPX-0.06% slipped 0.92 point, or less than 0.1%, to close at 1,517.01, with 7 out of its 10 major sectors trading lower. The benchmark rose 0.3% last week, gaining for a sixth consecutive week. Energy stocks led the decline even as crude futures traded higher Monday and refiners held onto recent gains. The technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite index COMP-0.06% fell 1.87 points, or less than 0.1%, to close at 3,192. Trading volume was at its lowest volume of the year, bumping Friday’s low volume for that honor. Volume of NYSE-listed shares was 2.6 billion. For Nasdaq-listed shares, it was 1.54 billion. For the year to date, average daily volume is 3.59 billion for NYSE-listed shares, and 1.9 billion for Nasdaq-listed shares, according to Barclays. Declining stocks outnumbered gainers by about 16 to 13 on the NYSE, and slightly outnumbered them on the Nasdaq. “Largely absent any news, I’d say markets are working off an overbought phase and taking a pause,” said Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott. Stocks have been trading near five-year highs, raising the possibility the market might be able to break out of its long period of lackluster performance, or what’s known as a secular bear market. Goldman Sachs has grown cautious on global equities in the near term, cutting its recommendation to neutral from overweight on a three-month basis. Most Asian markets were closed, eliminating one more possible driver for the market, said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at BTIG. While Monday may be lacking catalysts, retail sales data on Wednesday will likely have a big effect on stocks, according to a note from Citi’s Steven Englander. With higher taxes kicking in on Jan. 1, “retail sales will be the first really hard data on the impact of the tax hike,” Englander said. Economists polled by MarketWatch forecast sales to show a scant 0.1% seasonally adjusted increase, reflecting the expiration of a payroll tax cut, higher gasoline prices, and delayed tax refunds. The only other possible market catalyst in the next day or two is President Barack Obama’s annual State of the Union address Tuesday night. Shares of Google Inc. GOOG-0.38% declined 0.4% after the Internet-search firm said late Friday that its chairman, Eric Schmidt, planned to sell nearly half of his stake in the company. In the currency markets, the dollar EURUSD -0.0525% fell against the euro, but the U.S. dollar Index DXY+0.21% , which measures the greenback against a basket of six other currencies, was trading at 80.35, compared with 80.25 late Friday. News reports said officials from the Group of Seven nations continue to weigh the possibility of issuing a statement aimed at averting a so-called currency war. A pair of officials from the Group of 20 told Reuters that a G-7 statement could be released ahead of the meeting of G-20 finance ministers and central bankers in Moscow this week.
