5/3/13 Fri. am Intel Taps Brian Krzanich as New CEO

Post No. 2,167  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   Friday's Wall St. Journal, Financial Times, Investor's Business Daily, New York Times, USA Today, Atlanta Journal Constitution &amp 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 Industrial Average: The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Thursday at 14,831.58 up 130.63 or 0.89% from Wednesday's close of 14,700.95. For the year the Dow is up 13.18%.  Of the Dow components 2 gained and 28 declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was IBM up $2.76 and percentage-wise was Cisco up 1.72%. The biggest decliner dollar-wise and percentage-wise was Coke up 25 cents or 0.59%.

WSJ pC4 "Stocks bounce back as tech leads rally" by Chris Dieterich says stocks rallied helped bys trong earnings fro the tech sector, an upbeat reading on the US job market, & a rate cut by the European Central Bank.

FT p26 "Strong European performance lifts GM as S&P 500  hits record" by Arash Massoudi says US stocks set a record high Thurs as GM shares outperformed the broad market.  Intel climbed 0.5% after naming a new CEO.

IBD pB2 "Stocks pound higher as leaders show strength" by Paul Whitfield says stocks were up but the S&P 500 remained stuck under 1600 resistance as Thursday's action was up in lower vol and the current outlook is a confirmed uptrend.

NYT pB8 "Jobless claims report helps lift market" &AJC pA13 "Jobless report boosts indexes" by AP say stocks climbed Thurs after a report that unemployment benefits applications fell last week to the lowest since Jan '08.  

As of the open of the market on Friday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5 of Thursday's Wall St. Journal is 0.130216081. Friday's trailing P/E ratio is 16.26 up from Thursday's trailing P/E ratio of 16.16 (last year it was 14.71);  Friday's P/E estimate is 13.15 unchanged from Thursday's P/E estimate of 13.15 (year ago it was 12.42) and Friday's dividend yield is 2.42 down from yesterday's dividend yield of 2.43 (last year it was 2.48). The Dow's all-time high was 14,865.14 on April 11, 2013. 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 1,931.34 up 17.04 from Wednesday's closing numerator of 1,914.30. 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 Thursday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $64.38 up 57 cents from Wednesday's average of $63.81. The median closing price of Thursday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $61.68 (DIS/UNH) up 22 cents from Wednesday's median closing price of $61.46. 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 $1,704 ($193,134 - $191,430).

5/2/13 Thursday MarketWatch 4:17 by Kate Gibson says U.S stocks surged on Thursday, with the S&P 500 clearing the prior day’s drop to close at a record, after the European Central Bank cut its benchmark interest rate and U.S. jobless claims unexpectedly declined to a five-year low.
“Stocks are certainly responding to additional global-central-bank easing trends, and the additional tough talk from [ECB President] Mario Draghi that they’ll keep rates low as long as they need to,” said Jim Russell, senior equity strategist for U.S. Bank Wealth Management in Cincinnati. ‘Fiscal policy is working against monetary policy at this point.’Jim Russell, U.S. Bank Wealth Management
“The jobless-claims numbers were encouraging, especially in that we’re very hopeful that maybe we can beat the consensus” in Friday’s nonfarm-payrolls report, Russell added. General Motors Co. GM +3.25% gained 3.3% after the auto maker reported earnings and Facebook Inc.’s FB +5.61% shares rose 5.6% after the social-network operator reported sales that beat estimates. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +0.89% rallied 130.63 points to 14,831.58, with all but three of its 30 components in positive turf. U.S. markets will look to rebound from Wednesday's selloff.
Shares of Intel Corp. INTC +0.50% edged higher after the Dow component and computer-chip manufacturer picked its chief operating officer, Brian Krzanich, to take the helm as CEO.
After rising to a record intraday high of 1,598.60, the S&P 500SPX +0.94% added 14.89 points to 1,597.59, a level that has it fractionally above its all-time close of 1,597.56 hit on Tuesday. Technology led gains and utilities proved the weakest performer among its 10 sectors.
The Nasdaq Composite COMP +1.26% climbed 41.49 points to 3,340.62. For every stock falling, more than three gained on the New York Stock Exchange, where 676 million shares traded.
