3/18/15 Wed. pm Dow Closes at 18076.19 up 227.11 or 1.27%
by Dan Kolber

Post No. 3,094 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.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Wednesday at 18076.19 up 227.11 or 1.27%  from Tuesday's close of 17849.08. Of the Dow components 28  gained,, Cisco was unchanged and   only Walmart  declined. The  biggest gainer dollar-wise was  Chevron up $3.53 and percentage-wise was Caterpillar up 3.67%. The  only and therefore the biggest decliner dollar-wise and percentage-wise was  Walmart down 9 cents or 0.11%.

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 16.76 down  from yesterday's   trailing P/E ratio of 16.88 (last year it was 16.05).  Today's P/E estimate is 16.67 unchanged from Tuesday's P/E estimate of 16.67 (year ago it was 14.52) and  today's dividend yield is 2.49 up from  yesterday's dividend yield of 2.48  (last year it was 2.18). The Dow's all-time high was 18288.63 on March 2,  2015. 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 numerator is 2814.75 up 35.36  from  Tuesday's   numerator of 2779.39.   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  Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $93.84 up  52 cents  from Tuesday's  average closing price of $92.65.  The median closing price of  Wednesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $84.91  (WMT/XOM) up 46 cents from Tuesday's median closing price of $84.45 (WMT/XOM).  The lowest volume was Travelers and the highest volume was AT&T.

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 $3,536 ($281,475 - $277,939).

3/18/15 Wed. 2:49 pm MarketWatch by Anora Mahmudova  & Wallace Witkowski says
U.S. stocks swung sharply to gains Wednesday after the Federal Open Market Committee removed the word “patient” from its policy statement, but indicated a slower pace of rate hikes. The S&P 500 SPX, +1.21%  jumped 22 points, or 1.1%, to 2,097, with all 10 sectors in the black, led by energy and utilities. Just before the statement, the S&P 500 was down 8 points.The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +1.27%  surged 185 points, or 1%, to 18,034, after trading down 101 points just before the statement’s release. It was down more than 120 points, after shedding more than 100 points near the open. Twenty-four of the Dow’s 30 components were trading higher, with Chevron Corp. CVX, +3.42%  among the biggest losers.The Nasdaq Composite COMP, +0.92%  surged 41 points, or 0.8%, to 3,979, after being down about 17 points before the statement.The Fed’s “dot plot,” or survey of what Fed officials think rates should be at certain times, indicated a slower rise in rates, as the median dot for the end of 2015 declined to 0.625% from 1.125%.
Bob Baur, chief global economist at Principal Global Investors, said the Fed wants to maintain the most flexibility as it attempts to lift rates.The Fed wants “some flexibility to be able to raise rates fairly soon,” Baur noted. “But they don’t want to be locked in,” to a specific timetable, he added.
Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen said at a news conference the central bank has not determined timing on rate increases.

3/17/15 Tues. 4:38 pm MarketWatch by Anora Mahmudova  & Barbara Kollmeyer says
U.S. stocks ended Tuesday’s choppy session broadly lower, with the Dow industrials posting a triple-digit loss. Investors wrestled with jitters as the Federal Open Market Committee two-day meeting got under way, with many expecting the central bank to pave the way to an interest-rate hike as early as this summer by removing the word “patient” from its statement. The S&P 500 SPX, -0.33%  closed 6.99 points or 0.3%, lower at 2,074.20, with nine of its 10 main sectors finishing lower. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.71%  dropped 128.34 points, or 0.7%, to 17,849.08, with 25 of its 30 members posting losses.The Nasdaq Composite’s COMP, +0.16%  defied the trend and closed in positive territory, up 7.93 points, or 0.2%, at 4,937.43, with the help of Apple Inc.’s AAPL, +0.06%  1.7% gain.“The sideways trading action since the end of QE is an indication that people are confused about the economy. Tomorrow’s statement is unlikely to bring about any clarity to markets, as the Fed is likely to replace the word ‘patient’ with ‘slow path’ rhetoric,” said Ed Shill, chief investment officer at QCI Asset Management.“But markets are absolutely wrong about the June-September rate hike, because they have ignore one of the biggest words the Janet Yellen has been saying all this time—‘if’. The Fed will raise if we see strong employment growth, wage growth and inflation at 2%. But none of that is happening,” Shill said.In Tuesday’s economic news, data showed construction on new U.S. homes slumped in February, mostly due to harsh winter, but permits jumped, suggestion construction will pick up in the spring. Softer data over the past two months had pushed expectations of a rate hike further out, resulting in markets rallying on ‘bad news,” which was seen delaying a rate hike, and falling on “good news.” However, so far this year, the S&P 500 moved largely sideways, rising less than 1% since the start of the year.U.S. stocks rose Monday, rebounding after three consecutive weeks of declines. A slight decline in the U.S. dollar and gains in European stocks contributed to the market’s positive tone. Valeant revised its deal to acquire Salix. Diane Jaffee, senior portfolio manager at TCW, an asset manager with $7 billion under management, said much of the market expects the word “patient” won't be removed from the central bank’s statement.“After lower consumer sentiment figures, markets think the Fed will keep ‘patient’ and if it does not, then we are in for a selloff,” Jaffee said. “But ultimately, the Fed will start raising rates some time this year and markets will go through rough patches,” she said.Stocks to watch: Burlington Stores Inc. BURL, +2.11%  rose 2.1% after the discount retailer posted better-than-expected fourth-quarter profit and revenue.Plug Power Inc. PLUG, -0.38% shares dropped 5.1% after the company missed earnings and sales estimates. Shares of American Airlines Group Inc. AAL, +0.43%  jumped 6.9% after Standard & amp; Poor’s said late Monday that the airline will be included in the S&P 500 index.
Apple Inc. AAPL, +0.06%  jumped 1.7% after The Wall Street Journal, citing sources, reported that the tech company is in talks with programmers to launch an online television service based on a slim bundle of TV networks. Other markets: European stocks fell, with the Stoxx Europe 600 SXXP, -0.71%  declining 0.7% to 397.33. In Asia, the Nikkei 225 index NIK, +0.99%  scored a new 15-year closing high, while Shanghai Composite Index SHCOMP, +1.55%  stocks closed above the 3,500 mark for the first time in nearly seven years.Oil prices CLJ5, -2.69%  fell for the sixth straight session, with WTI contract settling 1% lower at $43.46 a barrel. Gold prices GCJ5, -0.42%  settled at the lowest level since November, foaling 0.4% to $1,148.20. The greenback DXY, -0.07%  gave back some ground against major currencies on Tuesday.
