4/8/13 Mon am Alcoa Posts Today after Close

Post No. 2,130  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 April 1, 2013 and recent Dow 30 components' SEC filings as of April 1, 2013.

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 14,565.25 down 40.86 or 0.28%  from Thursday's close of 14,606.11. For the year the Dow is up 11.15%.  For the week the Dow was down 0.09%. The Of the Dow components 12   gained and 18 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise  and percentage-wise was Boeing up $1.22 or 1.44%. The biggest decliner dollar-wise  and percentage-wise was IBM down $1.90 or 2.14%.

IBD pB 8 "Stocks dig big hole early, then backfill much of loss" by Paul Whitfield says stock indexes opened with ugly gap down moves Rri but patched over much of the damage as Friday's action was down in rising volume & the current outlook is an uptrend under pressure.

As of the open of the market on Monday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at pageC4  of  Monday's Wall St. Journal is 0.130216081. Monday's opening trailing P/E ratio is 15.87 down from Friday's P/E ratio of 15.92 (year ago it was 14.62); Monday's P/E estimate is 13.05 up from Friday' s P/E estimate of 12.95 (year ago it was 12.55) and Monday's dividend yield is 2.44 up from Friday's dividend yield of 2.43 (last year it was 2.51). The Dow's all-time high was 14,622.01 on April 2, 2013. The 12 year low close for the Dow was on March 9, 2009 when it fell to 6,547.05.

Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1,896.66 down 5.29    from Thursday's closing numerator of 1,901.95. 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 change for today by the divisor (0.130216081) you get the change 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 $63.2 down 18  cents from Thursday's average of $63.40. The median closing price of Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $59.90   (DIS/UNH) up 12 cents from Thursday's median closing price of $59.78. The lowest volume was Travelers 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 lost $529   ($190,195 - 189,666).

4/5/13 Friday 4:22 pm MarketWatch by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks fell on Friday, with the S&P 500 index sustaining its worst weekly hit this year, after the government said the far fewer Americans found jobs in March than analysts had estimated.“Welcome back to tempered expectations. We don’t think the wheels have fallen off the economy, but we don’t think it ever had the momentum that some people believed,” said Bruce McCain, chief investment strategist at Key Private Bank in Cleveland.“That’s what makes for market corrections,” he added.Payrolls increased by 88,000 last month following a revised 268,000 gain in February, with the disappointing report following two others this week that also cast a negative view on the labor market.“We can now add the monthly employment report to the growing list of data points that simply haven’t met expectations,” Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at BTIG LLC in New York, said in emailed comments.After falling 171 points, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.28% recovered the lions share of its losses to end at 14,565.25, down 0.3% for the session and 0.1% for the week.Eighteen of the blue-chip index’s 30 components lost ground, including Alcoa Inc. AA +0.24% , which unofficially starts the first-quarter earnings-reporting season on Monday, after the market close.Down 1% for the week, its largest weekly loss since December, the S&P 500 index SPX -0.43% declined 6.7 points, or 0.4%, to 1,553.28, with technology companies hardest hit and utilities the best performing of its 10 major sectors.F5 Networks Inc. FFIV -19.03% plummeted 19% a day after projecting second-quarter earnings and revenue well below consensus estimates.The Fed releases minutes from its March meeting and earnings seasons kicks off. Polya Lesova discusses the coming week's economic events.The Nasdaq Composite COMP -0.66% lost 21.12 points, or 0.7%, to 3,203.85, with the technology-heavy index off 2% for the week, its biggest weekly drop since the week ended Nov. 9, 2012.Decliners ran just ahead of advancers on the New York Stock Exchange, where nearly 726 million shares traded. Eastern. Composite volume approached 3.4 billion.The recent series of less-than-hoped for economic reports increases the odds that the Federal Reserve will stay the course and continue its monthly purchases of $85 billion of Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities.The jobs number “is truly disappointing and suggests we’re a long way from the normalized growth the Fed in particular seems to be striving for,” said McCain.The Fed’s bond-buying program, along with measures from other global central banks, are among the forces that have helped drive up the price of equities this year, with the S&P 500 up 8.3% for the year.Wall Street stocks rose on Thursday as investors cheered a massive stimulus program announced by Japan, helping it brush aside downbeat news on jobless claims. The Bank of Japan’s move to begin on a course of record easing had it lining up with the policies of the U.S. central bank, the European Central Bank and the Bank of England.Stocks in Japan extended a rally on Friday, with the Nikkei 225 index JP:NIK +1.58% finishing up 3.5% for the week on the heels of the unprecedented stimulus. The dollar USDJPY +1.2757% stretched its climb versus the Japanese yen, though the greenback posted losses against most other major currencies following the weak jobs report.
