7/30/14 Wed. am McDonald's Liable for Franchisees' Labor Practices
by Dan Kolber

Post No. 2,759 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 a summary of recent Dow 30 components'  SEC filings.

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

The Dow Jones Industrial Average: The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed  Tuesday at 16912.11 down 70.48 or 0.42%  from Monday's close of 16982.59. For the year the Dow is up 2.02%. Of the Dow components  6  gained and 24   declined.   The biggest gainer   dollar-wise and percentage-wise was AT&T up 94 cents or 2.64%. The biggest decliner   dollar-wise  was  United Technologies down $1.61 and percentage-wise was UnitedHealth down 1.73%.

FT p19 "Wall Street" by Eric Platt says US equity markets were little moved despite rising consumer confidence figures. 

NYT pB7 "Stocks & bonds" by Reuters says the market fell Tues as a weak fin'l outlook from UPS pressured transportation stocks.

IBD pB4 "Stocks fall as trade rises" by Juan Carlos Arancibia says Tuesday's action saw indexes drop, close near session lows as the current outlook is an uptrend under pressure.

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 16.32 down from Tuesday's   trailing P/E ratio of 16.33  (last year it was 16.69).  Wednesday's P/E estimate is 15.13 unchanged from Tuesday's P/E estimate of 15.13 (year ago it was 13.90) and Wednesday's dividend yield is 2.16 down  from  Tuesday's dividend yield of 2.17  (last year it was 2.37). The Dow's all-time high was 17113.54 on July 2,  2014. 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 numerator is 2633.48 down 10.98  from  Monday's   numerator of 2644.46.  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 $87.78 down 37 cents from Friday's  average closing price of $88.15.  The median closing price of  Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $82.13  (HD/UNH)  down $1.28 from Monday's median closing price of $83.41 (HD/UNH). The lowest volume was  Travelers   and the highest volume was Verizon.

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 $1,098 ($264,446 - $263,348).

7/29/14 Tuesday  4:17  pm MarketWatch by Anora Mahumudova  & Carla Mozee says U.S. stocks ended Tuesday’s choppy trading session lower, as investors turned cautious after the European Union and the President Barack Obama announced a new round of sanctions against Russia for its role in Ukraine’s deadly civil war.                                        
The European Union on Tuesday also extended sanction on Russia over Eastern Ukraine violence. The expanded sanctions will target the Russian energy, defense, and finance sectors.
Better-than-expected earnings and upbeat consumer confidence data sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average above 17,000 and the S&P 500 near its record closing level, but gains soon petered out.
The S&P 500 /SPX -0.45%  closed 9 points, or 0.5%, lower at 1,969.95. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.42%  ended 70.48 points, or 0.4%, lower at 16,912. The Nasdaq Composite COMP -0.05% finished 2.2 points lower at 4,442.70. 
Paul Vigna and Mark Cook discuss the possibility of a 20% pullback in markets.
Anthony Valeri, investment strategist at LPL Financial said investors are focused on GDP, ISM and the jobs data to be released in the coming days.
“The FOMC statement is unlikely to change from the previous one and there will be no press conference. If the economy continues to improve, we expect companies to grow their revenues and earnings. We also expect the market to continue a slow grind higher by the year-end,” Valeri said.
Tuesday’s economic news had little impact on markets. Consumer confidence index jumped unexpectedly to 90.9 in July, the highest since October 2007.
Separately, a report from the Case-Shiller 20-city composite index showed U.S. house prices rose in May, with every city showing gains. Prices fell on a seasonally adjusted basis, however. Year-over-year growth also slowed down.
Data released Monday showed pending U.S. homes sales fell 1.1% in June, the first decline in four months. That report “confirmed Fed Chair Yellen’s remarks before the Senate Banking committee earlier this month about the overall slowdown in the housing sector,” wrote Marshall Gittler, head of global FX strategy at IronFX, on Tuesday.
Yellen will lead monetary policy makers in their two-day meeting that started Tuesday morning.
In earnings news, Corning Inc.GLW +0.20%  shares tanked 9.3% after the maker of TV-screen glass reported a sharp drop in second-quarter earnings due to acquisition-related costs.
Shares in Herbalife Ltd.   HLF -0.41%  fell 14%, extending losses from late Monday when the nutritional supplements marketer posted quarterly results that missed Wall Street’s targets.
Shares of Merck & Co. MRK +1.05%   — a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.42%  — rose 1% after the drug maker’s adjusted earnings and sales surpassed expectations.
