5/13/15 Wed. am Verizon Buying AOL for $4.4 Bil
by Dan Kolber

Post No. 3,171 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 Dailey, New York Times, USA Today, 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 18068.23 down 36.94 or 0.20%  from Monday's close of 18105.17.  For the year the Dow is up 1.38%. Of the 30   Dow components 9  gained and 21  declined.  The  biggest gainer dollar-wise and percentage-wise was Walmart up 86 cents or 1.1%. The  biggest decliner dollar-wise was Goldman Sachs down $1.20 and percentage-wise was Intel down 1.35%.

WSJ pC4 "Stocks muster a rally from early fall, but not a win" by Corrie Driebusch, Saumya Vaishampayan says US stocks recovered from sharp losses early in the day after a steep selloff in European shares and gov bonds.

IBD pB5 "Main indexes trim losses as they bid for support" by Juan Carlos Arancibia says the stock market pared losses Tues an encouraging move for a market still looking for more buyers as the current outlook is market in correction.

FT p21 "Wall Street" by Mamta Badkar, Eric Platt says US stocks declined for a 2nd straight day as volatile gov debt markets in Europe and the US rattled investors. 

AJC pA11 "Stocks slide on rate news" by AP says the US market slumped yesterday due to a troubling rise in global long term borrowing rates.

As of the open of  the market on Wednesday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C5 of  Wednesday's Wall St. Journal is 0.14985889030177.  Wednesday's trailing P/E   ratio is 16.52 down from Tuesday's   trailing P/E ratio of  16.56 (last year it was 16.37).  Wednesday's P/E estimate is 16.31 unchanged from Tuesday's P/E estimate of 16.31 (year ago it was 14.78) and  Wednesday's dividend yield is 2.27 unchanged from  Tuesday's dividend yield of  2.27 (last year it was 2.15). 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.

Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average numerator is 2707.68 down 7.54 from Monday's average numerator of 2713.22.   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 (0.14985889030177) you get the change in today's Dow. A dollar increase or decrease in a Dow stock results in a $6.67  change in the Dow Index.

The average closing price (the closing numerator divided by 30) of  Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $90.87 up $1.33 cents from Monday's closing average of $90.87.  The median closing price of  Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $87.59 (XOM/CAT) down 19 cents from Monday's median closing price of $87.78 (XOM/CAT).  The lowest volume was 3M  and the highest volume was Apple.

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 $754  ($271,322 - $270,768).

5/12/15 Tues. 4:34 pm MarketWatch by  Anora Mahmudova and Carla Mozee says U.S. stocks on Tuesday declined for a second straight session, though losses were modest after indexes recovered from a bout of selling linked to fluctuations in Treasury yields. The S&P 500 SPX, -0.29%  closed 6.21 points, or 0.3%, lower at 2,099.12, with eight of its 10 main sectors finishing lower. Energy stocks posted modest gains thanks to a jump in oil prices. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.20%  dropped as much 141 points, but ended 36.94 points, or 0.2%, lower at 18,068.23. The Nasdaq Composite COMP, -0.35%  shed 17.38 points, or 0.4%, to 4,976.19. U.S. bond prices recovered from an earlier bout of selling that followed a steep decline by European bonds. Yields rise as bond prices fall.Some analysts have pointed to a rise in inflation expectations in the eurozone as a factor driving bond prices down and yields higher. The widely watched yield on Germany’s 10-year bund TMBMKDE-10Y, +9.89%  leapt to nearly 0.7% Tuesday, from about 0.62% Monday, though that level remains very low by historical standards.Bruce Bittles, chief investment strategist at RW Baird & Co., said the stock market is stuck in a range.“There are too many people who are in the stock market who should not be, and that is because of the Fed policies. At this point, we don’t think the Fed will raise interest rates this year, and all the talk of rate hikes is aimed at knocking the stock prices down,” Bittles said.Bittles is watching the technical levels for clues about the direction of the market. “If the S&P 500 falls to 2,070, then we are looking for further selloffs. A fall below 2,040 would signal a correction,” he said.The yield on the 10-year Treasury note TMUBMUSD10Y, -1.35%  on Tuesday briefly climbed to the highest level since November, but reversed course and fell 2 basis points to 2.26% in late afternoon trade, according to Tradeweb. AOL/Verizon: AOL AOL, +18.62%  shares jumped 19% after the company agreed to be bought by Verizon VZ, -0.36% in a deal valued at $4.4 billion. Verizon expects to fund the purchase with cash on hand and commercial paper. Verizon’s stock fell 0.4%. Data: The National Federation of Independent Business said its small-business optimism index rose 1.7 points to 96.9 in April, though the reading is still the second-worst since October. March job openings declined to 4.99 million from February’s 5.14 million.
San Francisco Fed President John Williams said Tuesday that he wants the U.S. central bank to start raising rates “a bit earlier” so that the path of rates can be gradual. This suggests that a rate hike in June isn't out of the question.Stocks to watch: International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. IFF, -4.11%  said first-quarter profit rose 20%, despite the strong dollar’s impact on sales. But shares fell 4.1%.Gap Inc. GPS, -3.79%  shares dropped 3.8% after the clothing retailer’s first-quarter revenue missed analysts’ estimates, as compiled by FactSet. Pall Corporation PLL, +19.44% shares soared 19% after news reports that it is auctioning itself off to the highest bidder. Thermo Fisher Scientific TMO, -0.20% and Danaher DHR, +2.92%  are said to be among the bidders.Other markets: Oil futures CLM5, +2.26%  shot higher and settled at the second-highest level of the year, rising 2.5% to $60.75 a barrel. Gold prices GCM5, +0.83%  rose to the highest level in a week, gaining 0.8% to $1,192.40 an ounce. Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar DXY, -0.47%  fell. In Europe, the Stoxx 600 SXXP, -1.31%  tumbled 1.3%. Greece worries intensified after the country’s finance minister said it may run out of cash in two weeks. In Asia, the Shanghai Composite SHCOMP, +1.56%  fell 1.1%, but Japan’s Nikkei Average NIK, +0.02% edged up about 4 points.
