9/24/13 Tues. am Dow Divisor Changes to 0.155715905


Post No. 2,380 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  as of 9/23/13 and recent Dow 30 components' SEC filings as of 9/23/13.

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

The Dow Jones Industrial Average: The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Monday at 15401.38 down 49.71 or 0.32%   from  Friday's close of 15451.09.  For the year the Dow is up 17.53%. Of  the Dow components 11   gained and 19  declined.  The biggest gainer dollar-wise  and percentage-wise was UnitedHealt up $1.25 or 1.77% .  The biggest decliner dollar-wise   and percentage-wise was  Goldman Sachs down $4.50 or 2.65%.

WSJ pC4 "Stocks extend declines" by Alexandra Scaggs says stocks fell for a 3rd straight session as investors grappled with an uncertain outlook for the Fed policy.

NYT pB9 "Fight over US budget weighs on shares"  & AJC pA9 "Dow declines third day in a row" say the Dow fell for a 3rd straight day on Mon amid investor concern about the strength of the economy.

IBD pB2 "Stocks lose more ground; Apple softens Nasdaq's hit" by Vincent Mao says stocks retreated more Mon but the Nasdaq fared relatively better.  Monday's action was down in lower volume while the current outlook is a confirmed uptrend.

As of the open  of the market on Tuesday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5   of  Tuesday's Wall St. Journal is 0.155715905 changing from  Monday's divisor of 0.130216081.  Tuesday's  trailing P/E ratio is  16.06 down from Monday's  trailing P/E ratio of 16.12 (last year it was 14.77);  Tuesday's   P/E estimate is  14.25 unchanged  from yesterday's     P/E estimate of 14.25  (year ago it was 12.95) and today's  dividend yield is 2.43 unchanged   from Monday's dividend yield of 2.39  (last year it was 2.49). The Dow's all-time high was 15,676.94   on September 18, 2013. 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 2005.51 down 6.47  from Friday's closing numerator of  2011.98. 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 (0.155715905) you get the change in today's Dow. A dollar increase or decrease in a Dow stock results in a $6.42 change in the Dow Index.

The average closing price (the closing numerator divided by 30) of   Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $66.85 down  22 cents    from Friday's average of 67.07.  The median closing price of  Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $68.29 (DIS/UNH) up 50 cents  from Friday's median closing price of $67.79. 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 $647  ($201,198 - $200,551) .

MarketWatch 9/23/13 Mon. 4:23 pm by Kate Gibson says U.S. stocks fell on Monday after notching three weeks of gains, as investors heard from Federal Reserve officials and worried about another standoff in Washington.“Tapering might begin as soon as October or they might hold off until a new [Fed] chairman is elected. The comments and the message the Fed sent last week is the economy is still on some soft footing and doesn’t have the strength to begin this process — that’s not a good message to send,” said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Banyan Partners. “They got the market ready for this tapering. Their communication process of late has been abysmal,” he added.But Monday’s decline has “more to do with the discussions going on in Washington related to the budget talks and the debt ceiling; the rhetoric has spooked the market,” said Pavlik of the hardening stances in Washington that heighten the chances of a government shutdown.Down for a third consecutive session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.32%   declined 49.71 points, or 0.3%, to 15,401.38.Also down for a third day, the S&P 500 index SPX -0.47% lost 8.07 points, or 0.5%, to 1,701.84, with the financial sector hardest hit among its 10 major sectors.
Apple Inc. AAPL -.00%   shares jumped 5% after the company reported selling 9 million iPhone 5S and 5C models.Trading in BlackBerry Ltd. BBRY -0.45%   CA:BB 0.00% shares was temporarily halted after the smartphone maker said Fairfax Financial was offering to acquire the company for $9 a share. Its shares closed at $8.82, up 1.1%. The deal news came after Jefferies downgraded BlackBerry shares to hold from buy, saying the handset unit no longer held value after the smartphone manufacturer reported results.Citigroup Inc. C -0.02%  fell 3.2% after The Financial Times cited unnamed investors in reporting the bank might say revenue fell more than 10% when it releases quarterly results in October.The Nasdaq Composite COMP -0.25%  shed 9.44 points, or 0.3%, to 3,765.29.For every three stocks rising, roughly four fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where 690 million shares traded. Composite volume neared 3.1 billion.On the New York Mercantile Exchange, the price of crude CLX3 -1.32% fell $1.16, or 1.1%, to $103.59 a barrel and gold GCZ3 -0.79%  declined $5.50, or 0.4%, to $1,327 an ounce.The U.S. dollar DXY +0.05%  gained against other global currencies, while the 10-year yield 10_YEAR -1.06% fell 3 basis points to 2.702%.On Friday, stocks were hit after Fed Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard said the central bank could opt to cut its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases as soon as next month. The stock market had climbed to record highs and gained on the week after the Federal Open Market Committee on Wednesday kept its bond purchases unchanged.Addressing business leaders in New York Monday morning, Fed Bank of Atlanta President Dennis Lockhart said the economy is losing some steam.Fed Bank of New York President William Dudley told an audience at the Fordham University Graduate School of Business that an accommodative monetary policy is still needed.In a speech about U.S. banking in San Antonio, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher said he advocated slowing down the pace of central-bank asset purchases at last week’s policy session.In China, an initial gauge of a purchasing managers’ index of manufacturing activity put together by HSBC Holdings and Markit Economics rose to 51.2 this month from 50.9 in August.Monday’s U.S. economic data had an index of national activity turning positive in August and a preliminary reading on manufacturing slipping but “consistent with a modest improvement in manufacturing conditions.”On Sunday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel won re-election by the largest amount in more than 20 years.“Merkel’s victory is wider than anticipated yet most likely reflects voters’ satisfaction over the euro’s strongest economy,” noted Sean Lynch, global investment strategist for Wells Fargo Private Bank. But he said that challenges remain in euro-zone peripheral economies.
