12/4/13 Wed am India Claims IBM Owes $800 Mil

Post No. 2,463 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 News Daily, New York Times, Atlanta Journal & Constitution & 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 closing stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average: The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Tuesday at 15914.62 down 94.15 or 0.59% from  Monday's  close of 16008.77.  For the year the Dow is up 21.45%. Of  the Dow components  9  gained and  21    declined.   The biggest gainer dollar-wise  was and percentage-wise was  Exxon up 87 cents or 0.93% .  The biggest decliner dollar-wise was Visa down $3.38 and percentage-wise was DuPont down 2.01%.

WSJ pC1 "Three isn't a charm for Dow" by Kiatlyn Kiernan says blue chip stocks had their largest decline in nearly a month as some said investors appeared to cash in gains heading into the end of the year.

FT p21 "Wall Street" says US stocks fell Tues sending the S&P lower for 3 straight session as investors speculated that the Fed may trim its stimulus earlier than some had anticipated.

IBD pB4 "More distribution for S&P but market's picture mixed" by Juan Carlos Arancibia says stocks gave back more ground Tues as the action saw moderate losses in higher vol and the current outlook is a confirmed uptrend.

NYT pB10 "Shares slide suggesting the yearlong rally is cresting" & AJC pA15 "Streak of weekly gains at risk" both by AP says stocks fell Tues dragged lower by the Detroit automakers and consumer focused firms such as GameStop and

As of the open  of the market on Wednesday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C6   of  Wednesday's Wall St. Journal is 0.15571590501117.  Wednesday's   trailing P/E ratio is  16.34 down from yesterday's  trailing P/E of 16.44  (last year it was 14.42).  Today's   P/E estimate is  15.12 unchanged from Tuesday's P/E estimate of 15.12   (year ago it was 12.35) and today's  dividend yield is  2.13 up from yesterday's  dividend yield of 2.12  (last year it was 2.66). The Dow's all-time high was 16,097.33 on November 27, 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 2478.16 down 14.66 from Monday's closing numerator of 2492.82. 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   Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $82.61 down 48 cents from  Monday's average closing price of 83.09.  The median closing price of  Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $80.17 (NKE/WMT/) up 23  cents from Monday's median closing price of $79.94     (HD/WMT).  The lowest volume was  Travelers and the highest volume was Cisco.

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 $1,466   ($249,282 - $247,816).

MarketWatch 12/2/13 Mon. 4:34  pm by William L. Watts says  US stocks fell Tuesday, with the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling for a third straight day on uncertainty over when the Federal Reserve will begin to scale back stimulus and self-fulfilling fears the market was overdue for a pullback from record levels.The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.59%  dropped more than 100 points during the session before settling at 15,914.62, down 94.15 points, or 0.6%, taking it well below the psychologically important 16,000 level. The drop was the index’s biggest one-day decline since Nov. 7.The S&P 500 SPX -0.32%  lost 5.75 points, or 0.3%, to 1,795.15 and the Nasdaq Composite COMP -0.20% declined 8.06 points, or 0.2%, to 4,037.20.“I hate to use the words, ‘we’re due,’ but we’ve gone straight up,” said J.J. Kinahan, chief derivatives strategist at TD Ameritrade in Chicago.A decision by a Michigan judge to allow Detroit’s bankruptcy to proceed over the objections of unions and retirees helped trigger added selling pressure on concerns it could set a precedent for other municipalities, analysts said. The news served as an excuse for investors to “take a little bit off the table,” Kinahan said, while emphasizing that the scale of the pullback, which has seen the S&P 500 lose ground for three consecutive sessions, remains quite modest.The index set a record close above 1,800 last week and is up nearly 26% year to date.While this is a big week for economic data, with November nonfarm payrolls set for release on Friday, there were no major items on the calendar Tuesday aside from monthly auto sales.But a strong rise in November sales did little to boost either Ford Motor Co. F -0.06%  or General Motors Co. GM +0.11% . General Motors said it saw its strongest November in six years, with total sales up 13.7% versus the same month last year. Ford F -0.06%  reported a 7% rise in November sales. GM shares dropped 2.5% while Ford lost 2.9%. Both auto makers have had a strong run, however, with Ford up 28% since the beginning of the year and GM up more than 32% over the same stretch. Take a closer look at global auto sales.Auto maker Chrysler Group LLC, a unit of Italy-based Fiat SpA IT:F -2.37% , on Tuesday said November U.S. sales rose 16% to 142,725 units, the strongest November result since 2007.Share of electric-car maker Tesla Motors Inc. TSLA +0.09%  rose 16.5%. The company said Monday that an investigation by German authorities into three recent fires in Model S electric sports sedans found “no manufacturer-related defects.”The economic calendar picks up again Wednesday, with investors set to pounce on Automatic Data Processing’s estimate of November private-sector payrolls at 8:15 a.m. Eastern for a clue to the Labor Department’s jobs report on Friday. Also on tap will be October trade figures at 8:30 a.m. Eastern, the ISM November nonmanufacturing index and October new home sales data, both at 10 a.m., and the Fed’s so-called Beige Book report on regional economic conditions.Strong economic data can potentially weigh on equities if it reinforces worries the Fed could move as early as December or January to begin trimming the size of its bond-buying program, strategists said, although stronger economic momentum would likely provide support for the market over the longer run.Shares of Apple Inc. AAPL +0.20% rose 2.7% to $566.32. UBS upgraded the stock to buy from neutral and raised its price target to $650 from $540, saying more institutional money is likely to move back into the shares in 2014.Shares of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc. KKD +5.38% tumbled 20% after the company late Monday offered a disappointing fiscal 2015 outlook.Among blue chips, Visa Inc. V -1.65%  shares dropped 1.7%.
