7/4/13 Thurs. Boeing Out Delivers Airbus 1st Half of '13

Post No. 2,259  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 Thursday's   Investor's Business Daily (dated 7/5/13), New York Times &  Atlanta Journal  (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 14988.55 up 56.14 or 0.38% from Tuesday's close of 14932.41. For the year the Dow is up 14.38%. Of the Dow components  21 gained, Merck was unchanged  and 8  declined. The biggest gainer dollar-wise was  IBM up $1.72 and percentage-wise was Boeing up 1.4% . The biggest decliner dollar-wise was  Caterpillar down 63 cents and percentage-wise was Alcoa down 1.15%.

NYT pB6 "Market shows small gains in short session" by Reuters says the stock market ended slightly higher Wed in a half day session ahead of the holiday and Fri's gov report on the job market.

AJC pA15 "Job news edges other fears" by AP says encouraging news about the US jobs market trumped higher oil prices & worrying developments in Europe's debt crisis Wed.

IBD pB2 "Nasdaq extends its lead after quiet half day trade" by David Saito-Chung says amid a dull half session Wed the nasdaq cont'd to emerge as the market's current leading index. The current outlook is the market is in a correction.

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 was 16.32 up from Tuesday's     trailing P/E ratio of 16.28 (last year it was 14.26); Wednesday's closing P/E estimate was 13.42 unchanged   from Wednesday's  P/E estimate of 13.42  (year ago it was 12.19) and Wednesday's dividend yield was 2.45 up   from Tuesday's o  dividend yield of 2.42 (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.

Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average closing numerator was 1950.91 up 6.47 from Tuesday's closing numerator of 1944.44. 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   Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $65.03 up 22 cents from Tuesday's average of $64.81.  The median closing price of Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $64.58   (DIS/UNH) up 31 cents from Tuesday's median closing price of $64.27. 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 made  $647 $195,091 - ($194,998).

Wednesday MarketWatch 3:08 by Wallace Witkowski, Victor Reklaitis, Barbara Kollmeyer says U.S. stocks closed higher Wednesday in advance of the Independence Day holiday, as positive jobs data countered international concerns in the abbreviated trading session. The Dow Jones Industrial AverageDJIA +0.38% rose 56.14 points, or 0.4%, to close at 14,988.55, with shares of Boeing Co. BA +1.40% and Cisco Systems Inc.CSCO +1.11% leading the way. Earlier in the session, the Dow was down by as many as 73 points. Shares of Alcoa Inc.  AA -1.15% fell 1.2%, the worst performer on the index after a downgrade from J.P. Morgan analysts. The aluminum giant will kick off second-quarter earnings season on Monday after the bell. The S&P 500SPX +0.08% advanced 1.33 points, or less than 0.1%, to finish at 1,615.41, overcoming an earlier 9-point deficit, with tech and consumer discretionary stocks performing the best. The Nasdaq Composite /COMP +0.30% finished up 10.27 points, or 0.3%, at 3,443.67, as Apple Inc. AAPL +0.55% gained 0.6%. Earlier in the session, the Nasdaq had been down by as many as 15 points. Advancing stocks edged out declining stocks by about 13 to 10 on the Nasdaq while decliners outnumbered advancers on the New York Stock Exchange by about 3 to 2. Composite NYSE volume topped 1.9 billion shares and composite Nasdaq volume was just over 925 million shares by the 1 p.m. Eastern close. On the jobs front, ADP’s private-sector report showed a better-than-expected gain of 188,000 jobs in June. Initial weekly jobless claims showed a surprise drop, with the Labor Department saying claims fell from the prior week to 343,000. The jobless-claims report usually comes out on Thursdays, but that’s changed this week due to the Independence Day holiday. The data are a good indication of what may be in store for Friday’s job report, said Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott. However, trading on Friday’s report may not come to bear until Monday given the number of traders on holiday this week, he noted. “It’s taken out the probability that we’ll get a downside shock,” Luschini said. Economists polled by MarketWatch expect the U.S. added 155,000 jobs in June. Investors on Wednesday also were digesting a report showing the U.S. trade deficit widened more than expected in May, and a weaker-than-anticipated reading on the services sector. The Institute for Supply Management’s nonmanufacturing index fell to 52.2% in May, indicating slower growth among service-sector companies. Internationally, investors are concerned about a potential collapse for Portugal’s government after the exit of two cabinet members. The country’s government previously had agreed on an austerity plan under an international bailout. “Expect the government to fall in the course of the next 48 hours. A new election will be called amid a huge drive towards antiausterity,” said Steen Jakobsen, chief economist with Saxo Bank, in emailed comments. “This is exactly what German Chancellor Angela Merkel does not need.” European stocks dropped on Wednesday, with the Stoxx Europe 600 indexXX:SXXP -0.58% sliding 0.6%. In Egypt, President Mohammed Morsi proposed a consensus government as a military deadline urging him to meet protesters’ demands passed. The crisis turned deadly Tuesday night, with at least 18 people killed in fighting between Morsi’s supporters and his opponents. Oil prices jumped on the headlines out of Egypt, which is an important crude transport point. U.S. oil futures traded above $102 a barrel, but were recently back below that level. In Asia on Wednesday, stocks fell as two reports on China’s services sector indicated weak growth for June. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index HK:HSI -2.48% lost 2.5%. “It looks as if we could be headed for another summertime crisis in the euro zone, as Portugal’s government crumbles and bond yields spike,” said David Madden, market analyst at IG, in a note to investors. Gold prices gained, while the dollar was down slightly.
