7/3/13 Wed am UnitedHealth Group to Leave Cal

Post No. 2,256  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 recent ranking of the Dow 30 components by market capitalization and recent Dow 30 components' SEC filings.

A read of the print editions of Wednesday's  Wall St. Journal,  Financial Times,   Investor's Business Daily, New York Times, USA Today,  Atlanta Journal & 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 Tuesday's stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

Dow Jones Industrial Average: The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Tuesday at 14932.41 down 42.55 or 0.28% from Monday's close of 14974.96. For the year the Dow is up 14%. Of the Dow components  12 gained and 18  declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was Home Depot up 44 cents and percentage-wise was AT&T up 0.65% . The biggest decliner dollar-wise was Boeing down $1.77 and percentage-wise was GE down 1.89%.

WSJ pC4 "Shares erase early gains as investors brace for Friday" by Tomi Kilgore, Kaitlyn Kiernan says US stocks ended a volatile but low vol session with losses as jitters over Fri's key jobs data & a jump in crude oil prices kept sentiment in check.

NYT pB4 "Troubling news from Egypt stymies major indexes" by AP says the stock market ended lower on Tues due to reports of intensifying political turmoil in Egypt that offset good news about the US economy.

IBD pB4 "Stocks give up earlyg ains as rebound starts to stall" by Juan Carlos Arancibia says the stock market reversed lower Tues in a reminder that it is not out of its correction.

FT p22 "Carmakers shift up a gear after June sales surge at GM and Frod" by Jason Abbruzzese says US equity markets recovered much of the ground lost after the Fed warned that the end of its qe program was in sight.  JPMorgan was up 1.3%.

As of the open of the market on Wednesday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5   of  Wednesday's Wall St. Journal is 0.130216081. Wednesday's trailing P/E ratio is 16.32 up from yesterday's  trailing P/E ratio of 16.28 (last year it was 14.26); today's  P/E estimate is 13.42 unchanged   from Tuesday's P/E estimate of 13.42  (year ago it was 12.19) and today's closing dividend yield is 2.45 up   from yesterday's opening  dividend yield of 2.44 (last year it was 2.56). The Dow's all-time high was 15,409.39 on May 28, 2013. 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 1944.44 down 5.54 from Monday's closing numerator of 1949.98. 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   Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $64.81 down 19  cents from Monday's average of $65.  The median closing price of Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $64.27   (DIS/UNH) down 51 cents from Monday's median closing price of $64.78. The lowest volume was Travelers and the highest volume again was Bank of America.

If Tuesday 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  $554 ($194,998 - 194,444).

Tuesday MarketWatch 4:38 by Wallace Witkowski, Victor Reklaitis, Barbara Kollmeyer says U.S. stocks   ended lower Tuesday, losing steam gained from reports showing solid growth for car sales and factory orders as investors anticipated the jobs report at the end of the week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.28% closed down 42.55 points, or 0.3%, at 14,932.41, with shares of General Electric Co. GE -1.89%  and Boeing Co.  BA -1.71%  the day’s worst performers. The Dow industrials had traded as high as 74 points earlier in the session. The S&P 500 SPX -0.05%  slipped 0.88 point to close at 1,614.08, with industrials and materials lagging the most. The index was up as much as 9 points earlier. The Nasdaq Composite COMP -0.03%  fell 1.09 points to finish at 3,433.40, even though Apple Inc. AAPL +0.21%  shares finished the day up 2.3%. Earlier, the index was up as high as 19 points. Declining stocks outpaced advancers 3 to 2 on the New York Stock Exchange and by a narrow margin on the Nasdaq. Composite NYSE volume topped 3.2 billion shares and Nasdaq composite volume was just over 1.6 billion shares at the close. With the short holiday week and trading volume down, don’t place a lot of weight behind market swings right now, said Paul Nolte, managing director at Dearborn Partners. Ever since comments made by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke in late May brought stocks off their nominal highs, the market has been looking for a stabilizing force, and that will likely be earnings season, which begins next week, he said. “We’re still in a corrective phase that’ll end with the beginning of earnings,” Nolte said. Volume should be relatively light this week, with many traders taking vacations around Thursday’s Independence Day holiday. Besides shutting down Thursday for the holiday, U.S. stock markets will close early Wednesday — at 1 p.m. Eastern time. Stocks started edging down after New York Federal Reserve President William Dudley spoke Tuesday. Dudley reiterated that market fears about rate hikes are misplaced when it comes to the Fed’s intentions to scale back on asset purchases as the economy improves. But that reassurance did little to appease the market. Investors need to be careful on putting emphasis on any one data point during the short week, given that the big one will be the monthly U.S. jobs report on Friday morning. Economists polled by MarketWatch expect the economy added 155,000 jobs in June, down from 175,000 in May. That report will be a good tell on where the market stands regarding Fed policy, said Brad Sorensen, director of market and sector research at Charles Schwab.Markets rallied earlier after U.S. auto-sales data were released from Ford Motor Co. F +2.80%  and General Motors Co. /quotes/zigman/1466682/quotes/nls/gm GM +0.29% . Ford said it achieved its best June result since 2006, and GM’s sales increased 6.5%. Orders for goods produced in U.S. factories climbed 2.1% in May, the Commerce Department said. That topped the 1.9% gain expected by economists surveyed by MarketWatch. Data released Monday showed activity rebounded in June for manufacturers, which helped drive more gains for Wall Street. Some strategists are feeling upbeat, saying the June selloff for equities was overdone. In a note on Tuesday, UBS strategist Stephanie Deo said the investment bank is increasing its overweight position in equities, increasing U.S. exposure as part of that. She said they are also moving to an underweight in commodities, cutting their fixed-income underweight call back to neutral, selling emerging-market debt to reach an underweight position, and cutting cash to zero. On Monday, Deutsche Bank strategists said equities remain a safe bet over the long term. In Europe on Tuesday, XX:SXXP -0.40%  lost ground, closing down by 0.4%, with analysts saying traders were growing cautious ahead of central bank meetings for the U.K. and euro zone on Thursday. Asian markets finished mixed, with Japanese and Australian equities faring best. Among stocks on the move, shares of Zynga Inc. ZNGA +6.51%  advanced more than 6% after news of a new chief executive. Shares of Constellation Brands Inc. STZ -3.57%  fell 3.6% after the producer of liquor and wine reported its first-quarter profit fell to $52.9 million, or 27 cents a share, from $72.0 million, or 38 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Oil prices gained, while gold declined. Oil prices rose as Egypt’s military drew up a plan to suspend the country’s constitution.
