2/21/13 Thurs. am Boeing Proposes 787 Battery Redesign

Post No. 2,056  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.

A read of the print editions of Thursday's Wall 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 Wednesday's stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

Dow Jones Industrial Average: The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Wednesday at 13,927.54 down 108.13 or 0.77% from Tuesday's close of 14,035.67. For the year the Dow is up 6.28%. Of the Dow components 6 gained and 24 8 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was Walmart up 46 cents and percentage-wise was Merck up 1.04%. The biggest decliner dollar-wise was Caterpillar down $2.49 and percentage-wise was Alcoa down 3.37%.

WSJ pC4 "Dow drops 108 points as Fed's fears surface" by Chris Dieterich says stocks slumped after minutes from the Fed showed unease about its effort to support the economy.  Caterpillar was among the Dow's worst performing stocks falling $2.38 afte its sales in Jan fell.

FT p22 "Builders brittle as Jan data damp housing recovery hopes" by Anora Mahmudova says disappointing US housing data & woeaker than expected results from the largest luxury homebuilder drove down stocks in the sector while broader markets sold off after the release of the FOMC minutes.

NYT pB7 j"Markets slide on anxiety over Fed" by Reuters says stocks had their biggest decline in 3 months Wed when an important gauge of market volatility spiked after the minutes of the Fedj's most recent meeting suggested that it may slow or stop buying bonds sooner than expected.

IBD pB2 "Stocks fall in higer trade as uptrend feels pressure" by David Saito-Chung says stocks retreated sharply and volume grew Wed as the Fed fired a warning shot on the future of easy money as Wed's action saw sharp losses in higher trade and the current outlook is now uptrend under pressure.

AJC pA11 "Fed new fuels stocks loss" by by AP says the stock market had its biggest loss this year due to the Fed suggesting that the central bank scale back its effort to keep borrowing costs low.

As of the open of the market on Thursday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5 of Thursday's Wall St. Journal is 0.130216081. Thursday's opening trailing P/E ratio is 15.29 down from Wednesday's opening trailing P/E ratio of 15.44 (year ago it was 14.42); today's opening P/E estimate is 12.50 unchanged from Wednesday' s opening P/E estimate of 12.50 (year ago it was 12.35) and today's opening dividend yield is 2.53 up from yesterday's opening dividend yield of 2.50 (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.

Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,813.59 down 14.08 from Tuesday's closing numerator of 1,827.67. 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 (0.130216081) 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 Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $60.45 down 47 cents from Tuesday's average of $60.92. The median closing price of Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $55.05 (DIS/UNH) down $1.13 from Tuesday's median closing price of $56.18. The lowest volume was Travelers and the highest volume again was Bank of America.

If Wednesday 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 $1,408 ($182,767 - $181,359).

MarketWatch Wednesday 2/20/13 3:39 by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks on Wednesday fell the most in two weeks as investors considered varied views from Federal Reserve officials on the longevity of the central bank’s asset-purchase program. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA-0.77% shed 91.21 points, or 0.7%, to 13,944.4, with Caterpillar Inc. CAT-2.49% shares among those hit as the manufacturer of construction and mining equipment reported global sales fell in the first quarter. MarketWatch's Polya Lesova reports Dell, Herbalife and Boeing are likely to drive market activity on Wednesday. Retreating some from highs last reached in October 2007, the S&P 500 indexSPX-1.24% shed 16.55 points, or 1.1%, to 1,514.39, with materials the heaviest weight among its sectors. The S&P 500 is up 6.2% so far this year, lifted by the Fed’s easing policy, better-than-anticipated earnings and after politicians managed to reach a budget deal. Minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee’s January meeting released Wednesday had some Fed members expressing concern about the $85 billion a month in asset purchases. “As we found out last month, we don’t have a uniform voice coming from the Fed,” said Art Hogan, market strategist at Lazard Capital Markets. Interest rates could remain exceptionally low “well into 2014, but how much we spend on purchases could be scaled back at any time,” said Hogan of the Fed’s monthly spending on assets.However, potential changes to the Fed’s monetary policy are “less bothersome than some things on the horizon,” said Hogan, listing the March 1 deadline for massive cuts in government spending, known as sequestration, and the outcome of Italian elections. After closing at a 12-year high Tuesday, the Nasdaq CompositeCOMP-1.53% on Wednesday slipped 40.36 points, or 1.3%, to 3,173.21.Gold prices fell 1.6%, with the futures contract for February deliveryGCG3-2.56% losing $26 to $1,577.60 an ounce. Among individual stock moves, Boeing Co. BA +0.17% rose 0.4% a day after engineers approved the plane maker’s contract offer, deflating a labor dispute. Apple Inc.AAPL-2.42% fell 2.4% after supplier Foxconn Technology Group froze hiring at its biggest factory in Shenzhen. Toll Brothers Inc. TOL-9.05% shed 7.9% after the luxury-home builder reported earnings beneath expectations. “Weakness in gold and Apple has been the norm of late but when you throw in the home builders and a couple of suppliers into the mix, you get a broad decline,” remarked Elliot Spar, market strategist at Stifel Nicolaus & Company Inc. The price of gold, which touched $1,750 an ounce in December, is now around $1,600 - and falling. Polya Lesova joins Markets Hub.For every stock on the rise nearly three fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where 496 million shares traded as of 3:25 p.m. Eastern. Composite volume approached 3.2 billion. Figures from the Commerce Department had builders breaking ground in January on the most homes in more than four years and permits for construction ahead climbing. Housing starts fell to a 890,000 rate, below expectations. The rise in permits suggests “the January decline in starts will be temporary, and as the year progresses, housing starts will continue to push higher,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at BTIG LLC. A separate report from the Labor Department had the producer-price index rising 0.2% in January after a 0.3% decline the month before. Office Depot Inc. ODP-16.73% and OfficeMax Inc.OMX-7.00% will join in a $1.2 billion all-stock deal, the companies said Wednesday, confirming an accord mistakenly announced ahead of its completion.
