11/10/13 Sat Dow Hits Another Record

Post No. 2,440 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  Monday's  Barron's &  Investor's News Daily; the combined Sat/Sun issues of each of the Wall St. Journal &    Financial Times; &amp Saturday's  New York Times &   Atlanta Journal & amp; Constitution  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.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average:  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Friday at 15761.78 up 167.8 or 1.08% from  Thursday's close of 15593.98. For the week the Dow was up 146.23 or 0.94% from last Friday's close of 15,615.55. For the year the Dow is up 20.28%. Of  the Dow components  27  gained  and  3   declined.  The biggest gainer dollar-wise was Goldman Sachs up $3.53 and percentage-wise was JPMorgan up 4.47% .  The biggest decliner dollar-wise   and percentage-wise was Home Depot down 21 cents or 0.28%.

IBD pB8 "Stock indexes pop higher on strong economic data" by Paul Whitfield says stocks did some storm repairs Fri undoing part of the damage from Thursday's big sell off as Friday's action was up in falling but above average volume and the current outlook is uptrend under pressure.

Sat. WSJ pB1 "Dow steps up to another record" by Matt Jarzemsky says signs of accelerating job growth spurred a broad rally in US stocks, highlighting sentiment that the economic recovery will survive the likely rollback of Federal reserve's easy money policies.  JPMorgan rose 4.5% leading the Dow.

Sat. NYT pB7 "Jobs report elevats Dow to a new high" & Sat. AJC pA10 "Dow this new high on strong jobs report" by Ken Sweet, Steve Rothwell, AP says an unexpectedly strong jobs report gave stocks a lift on Fri pushing the Dow to an all time high.

As of the open  of the market on Monday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page B6   of  Saturday's Wall St. Journal is 0.15571590501117.  Monday's   trailing P/E ratio is  17.66 up  from Friday's  trailing P/E of 17.48  (last year it was 14.01).  Monday's   P/E estimate is  14.70 unchanged from Friday's P/E estimate of 14.70  (year ago it was 12.15) and Monday's  dividend yield is 2.13 down from Friday's  dividend yield of 2.22  (last year it was 2.66). The Dow's all-time high was 15,761.78   on November 8, 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 2454.36 up 26.13 from Thursday's closing numerator of 2428.23. 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 (0.15571590501117) 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   Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $81.81 up 87 cents from Thursday's average closing price of 80.94.  The median closing price of  Friday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $77.54 (NKE/WMT) down 7 cents from Thursday's median closing price of $77.61 (NKE/WMT).  The lowest volume was  Travelers and the highest volume was GE.

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 made $2,613    ($245,436 - $242,823).

MarketWatch 11/8/13 Fri. 4:35 pm by Victor Reklaitis says  U.S.stocks rose on Friday after a stronger-than-expected October jobs report, leading to a record close for the Dow industrials and a fifth straight weekly gain for both the Dow and the S&P 500. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA +1.08%  climbed 167.80 points, or 1.1%, to end at 15761.78, topping Wednesday’s record close. The blue-chip index advanced 0.9% for the week. The S&P 500 SPX +1.34%  rose 23.46 points, or 1.3%, to close at 1,770.61, slightly below its Oct. 29 record close. For the week, the benchmark index was up 0.5%. The Nasdaq Composite COMP +1.61%  gained 61.90 points, or 1.6%, to close at 3,919.23, helped by a nearly 5% jump for Inc.PCLN -0.02%  after its earnings report. The tech-heavy index was down 0.1% for the week, falling for the second week in a row. Meanwhile, the Russell 2000 index RUT +1.94% , a gauge of small-cap stocks, was up 20.88 points, or 1.9%, at 1,099.97. Some eyebrows were raised Wednesday when the Russell diverged, ending lower as the S&P 500 gained ground. The Russell, however, outpaced the S&P 500 on Friday, though it still slightly underperformed for the week, gaining 0.4%. The Labor Department said the U.S. economy added 204,000 jobs in October, well above the 100,000 jobs expected by economists polled by MarketWatch. The unemployment rate ticked up to 7.3% from 7.2%. In other data, the University of Michigan/Thomson Reuters consumer-sentiment index fell this month to 72, the lowest level in nearly two years and below expectations for 75. “You’ve got two competing data points, and a schizophrenic posture in the market,” said Drew Wilson, an analyst at Fenimore Asset Management. The stronger-than-expected jobs report at first hammered stock futures, as traders bet the report could bring forward the timing for when the Federal Reserve will taper its bond-buying program that’s boosted equities. But then futures turned roughly flat and stocks have advanced, trading near session highs. Job creation accelerated in October as payrolls advanced by 204,000, exceeding economists' expectations. Wilson described the initial selloff on the jobs report as a “good news is bad news market,” meaning some investors selling on economic strength that could reduce the Fed’s stimulus measures. That selloff was followed by a “bad news is good news” reaction to the soft sentiment report, leading to gains for the main stock indexes, he said. But Wilson also said it’s possible that more market participants are just upbeat after the jobs report, believing that good news is simply good news. “Even for those who fear the taper, there has to be some faction who believe that the healing of the patient in the long run will be a good thing,” the analyst told MarketWatch. Wilson said he’s “a believer that good news is good news.” On the other hand, strategist Nick Colas said stock futures recovered because market participants questioned some details in the jobs report. While the headline number beat forecasts, many jobs added were part time, and participants wondered about the eventual revisions, said Colas, chief market strategist at ConvergEx Group.
“I think there’s a lot of skepticism of the quality of this number,” Colas told MarketWatch.
Colas also said “it’s going to be a while” before market participants generally believe that good news is good news. The maxim that “Wall Street isn’t the economy” has never been more true, Colas added, as Wall Street has a lot of Fed stimulus baked into its prices.Underscoring the uncertainty, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank President Dennis Lockhart called the environment for monetary policy-making “murkier than I would like,” with less reliable economic data making it difficult for the central bank to read the economy’s pulse. TwitterTWTR +0.10% shares dropped 7.2% on Friday, after surging more than 70% in their debut in the previous session. European stocks fell, with the French CAC 40 indexFR:PX1 -0.48%  under particular pressure after Standard & Poor’s cut the country’s credit rating by one notch to ‘AA,’ citing worries about growth prospects. The dollar DXY +0.47%  rose, while gold futures dropped.
