2/25/13 Mon. pm Dow Closes at 13,784.17 down 216.40 or 1.55%

http://www.dowjonesmonitor.com/

Post No. 2,063  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 Monday at 13,784.17 down 216.40 or 1.55% from Friday's close of 14,000.57. Of the Dow components 3 gained and 27 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise  and percentage-wise was McDonald's up94 cents or 0.99 %. The biggest decliner dollar-wise was IBM down $3.54 and percentage-wise was Bank of America 3.67 %.


As of the open of the market on Monday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C4  of Monday's Wall St. Journal is 0.130216081. Monday's opening trailing P/E ratio is 15.54 up from Friday's opening trailing P/E ratio of 15.16 (year ago it was 14.53); Monday's opening P/E estimate is 12.54 up from Friday' s opening P/E estimate of 12.50 (year ago it was 12.45) and Monday's opening dividend yield is 2.53 down from Friday's opening dividend yield of 2.53 (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.

Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,794.92 down 28.18 from Friday's closing numerator of 1,823.10. 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 Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $59.83 down 94 cents from Friday's average of $60.77. The median closing price of Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $53.45 (DIS/UNH) down 91 cents from Friday's median closing price of $54.36. 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 $2,818 ($182,310 - $179,492).

MarketWatch Monday 2/25/13 3:42 by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks fell on Monday, with the S&P 500 extending losses after its first weekly drop this year, as political issues, both domestically and abroad, weighed.Equities declined as investors looked to the March 1 deadline for U.S. lawmakers to reach a deal to avert automatic spending cuts, known as sequestration, as well as the results from a general election in Italy.“The market started off strong today, but is starting to get a little worried. If the sequestration happens, and the big cuts are in place, I am pretty sure the market is going to pull back, maybe 3% to 5%, then go to all-time highs,” said Randy Frederick, managing director of active trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab.
After an 81-point rise, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -1.55% fell as much as 107 points, and was lately off 70.14 points, or 0.5%, at 13,930.43.Just eight of the Dow’s 30 components gained, with McDonald’s Corp. MCD +0.93%  the strongest performer and Bank of America Corp. BAC -0.09%  hardest hit.The S&P 500 index SPX -1.83%  fell 11.73 points, or 0.8%, to 1,503.93, with financial companies the worst performing of its 10 sectors.The Nasdaq Composite index COMP -1.44%  shed 15.71 points, or 0.5%, to 3,146.46.Italians are going to the polls in a election, which will set Italy's future economic path. It's a vote that has implications for the whole of the euro zone.Equities have fallen in recent sessions, with the S&P 500 on Friday tallying its first weekly drop this year, as strategists said the market could use a correction or at minimum a pause given an advance that has the S&P 500 up 5.9% so far this year.“The market is already primed for a pullback, all it needs is a catalyst,” said Frederick.For every five stocks rising nine fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where 357 million shares traded as of 1:40 p.m. Eastern. Composite volume topped 2 billion.On the New York Mercantile Exchange, the price of oil slipped slightly, with crude for April delivery CLJ3 -0.90%  down 2 cents to close at $93.11 a barrel.The euro EURUSD -1.0750%  fell against other global currencies, including the U.S. dollar DXY +0.32% , as investors tracked the outcome of national elections in Italy, where a potentially strong performance by Silvio Berlusconi’s coalition is seen as a threat to the nation’s austerity agenda.

***************
The following are excerpts from Monday morning's Blog.

A read of the print editions of Monday's Barron's, Investor's Business Daily, Wall St. Journal, Financial Times,  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 Friday's stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

Dow Jones Industrial Average: The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Friday at 14,000.57 up 119.95 or 0.86% from Thursday's close of 13,880.62. For the year the Dow is up 6.84%  For the week the Dow is up 118.81 0.85% from last Friday's close of 13,881.76. Of the Dow components 26 gained and 41 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was and percentage-wise was Hewlett-Packard up $2.10 or 12.28%. The biggest decliner dollar-wise and percentage-wise was UnitedHealth down 77 cents or 1.39%.

IBD pB8 "Stocks close losing week with gains in light trade" by Paul Whitfield says stocks took a rest after 2 days of sharp selling as the indexes notched gains in quiet volume.  The current outlook is uptrend under pressure. 

Sat. WSJ pB5 "Stocks get back in black" by Matt Jarzemsky says the Dow had its 3rd triple digit point gain of the year as Hewlett-Packard & AIG rallied on earnings & a reading on German business confidence topped expectations.  Hewlett-Packard gained $2.10 leading the Dow after it reported a quarterly profit that topped analysts' views and gave a better than expected forecast.


Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,823.10 up 15.62 from Thursday's closing numerator of 1,807.48. 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 Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $60.77 up 52 cents from Thursday's average of $60.25. The median closing price of Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $54.36 (DIS/UNH) down 35 cents from Thursday's median closing price of $54.71. The lowest volume was 3M and the highest volume again was Bank of America.

If Friday 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 $1,562 ($182,310 - $180,748).

MarketWatch Friday 2/22/13 2:39 by Kate Gibson & Polya Lesova says U.S. stocks rallied on Friday after better-than-expected results from personal-computer maker Hewlett-Packard Co. and an upbeat report on German business confidence. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA+0.86% rose 95 points, or 0.7%, to 13,975.58 in afternoon trade, with H-P /HPQ+12.28% leading the gains a day after the company projected a second-quarter profit and reported quarterly revenue that topped estimates. Shares of H-P surged more than 14%, accelerating gains in afternoon trade. Wall Street also found support from a survey of German business executives showing sentiment in February rose to its highest reading since April. Recovering some of the losses sustained during the past two sessions—its worst two-day drop since early November—the Standard & Poor’s indexSPX+0.88% climbed 9.5 points, or 0.6%, to 1,512.04. Materials and technology led gainers among its 10 major industry groups. “The general advice is to watch for a shorter-term correction, but recognize we may not be there yet. This market may not be ready yet to give up the ghost,” said Bruce McCain, chief investment strategist at Key Private Bank. McCain is among the market strategists who believe equities are in need of a pullback to digest recent gains, saying a return by the S&P 500 /SPX+0.88% to 1,400 or below would be reasonable, and which would allow the benchmark index to move on to yearly gains of 10% to 15%. The Nasdaq Composite COMP+0.97% gained 23 points, or 0.7%, to 3,153.79. Around 385 million shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange as of 2:50 p.m. Eastern. Composite volume exceeded 2.4 billion. The exchange-traded fundsDIA+0.94% SPY-0.09% QQQ+1.01% that track the benchmark indexes also gained. The underlying trend for equities in the U.S. and globally is anticipating what monetary authorities will be doing, according to McCain and other market strategists. “We’re back to reading Federal-Reserve tea leaves, trying to figure the amount of money they are going to pump in both here and overseas,” said McCain. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke brushed off talk the central bank’s ultra-easy monetary policy is creating asset bubbles, Bloomberg News reported Friday, citing unnamed people who went to a meeting Bernanke held this month with dealers and investors. Bernanke’s reported comments to the 15-member Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee dismiss a key concern coming out of the minutes of the last Fed meeting, namely varying views that hinted “our Fed is going to ease up on its easing,” said McCain, who discounted such a move anytime this year. Bernanke will testify on monetary policy to Congress next week. Friday’s rise follows two straight days of declines that had the Dow industrials losing 155.05 points, or 1.1%, its biggest two-day drop since late December. The Dow is currently on track to finish the week unchanged, erasing weekly losses. For the week, the S&P 500 is off 0.5% and the Nasdaq has lost 1.2%. A weekly drop would halt the S&P 500’s winning streak at seven consecutive weeks, its longest such stretch since the one that ended Jan. 14, 2011.
