8/25/15 Tues. am Dow Down 10.95% YTD

by Dan Kolber

Post No. 3,311 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  Tuesday's  Wall Street Journal,   Financial Times, Investor's Business Daily, 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 Monday's  closing   stock prices and related data in alphabetical order.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average: The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Monday at  15871.28 down 588.47 or 3.58% from Friday's close of 16459.75. For the year the Dow is down 10.95%. Of the 30   Dow components   0 gained  and all 30 declined.  The  biggest decliner dollar-wise  was  Goldman Sachs down $8.28 and percentage-wise was J. P. Morgan down 5.27%.

As of the open of  the market on Tuesday the current divisor for the Dow Jones Industrial Average found at page C4 of Tuesday's  Wall St. Journal is 0.14967727343149.  Tuesday's trailing P/E   ratio is 15.19 down  from yesterday's   trailing P/E ratio of  15.75 (last year it was 16.11).  Today's P/E estimate is 15.57 unchanged from Monday's P/E estimate of 15.57 (year ago it was 15.05) and  today's dividend yield is  2.71 up  from yesterday's dividend yield of  2.59 (last year it was 2.23). The Dow's all-time high was 18312.39 on May 19,  2015. The 12 year low close for the Dow was on March 9, 2009 when it fell to 6,547.05.

Monday's closing Dow Jones Industrial Average numerator is 2375.57 down 88.08 from Friday's closing average numerator of 2463.65.   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 (0.14967727343149) you get the change in today's Dow. A dollar increase or decrease in a Dow stock results in a $5.08  change in the Dow Index.

The average closing price (the closing numerator divided by 30) of  Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $79.19 down $2.93s  from  Friday's closing average of $82.12.  The median closing price of  Monday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $72.47 (CVX/CAT) down $2.91  from  Friday's median closing price of $75.38 (CAT/CVX).  The lowest volume was Travelers and the highest volume was Apple.

If  Monday   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  $8,808  ($246,365 - $237,557).

8/24/15 Mon. 4:54 pm MarketWatch by  Anora Mahmudova & Barbara Kollmeyer says  Wall Street suffered one of its most volatile sessions in years Monday, with the Dow industrials plunging more than 1,000 points in the opening minutes, bouncing back to recover most of the losses and then fading into the final bell to record the biggest drop in four years. Meanwhile the main benchmark S&P 500 slipped into correction territory, having fallen more than 10% from its peak reached on May 21. “Short-term fear of the unknown is still in the driver’s seat, I would expect more volatility in the coming weeks,” said Kate Warne, investment strategist at Edward Jones. Indeed, Monday’s trading session saw the main indexes plunge by more than 5%. Nearly 14 billion shares changed hands on Monday, the largest volume since August 10, 2011.Investors remained concerned about global growth in the face of plummeting commodity prices and slowing growth in China, the second largest economy in the world. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -3.57%  ended the day down 588.47 points, or 3.6%, at 15,871.28—its lowest settlement since February 2014. All 30 members of the Dow finished the day in negative territory.The S&P 500 SPX, -3.94%  dropped 77.68 points, or 3.9%, to 1,893.21, the lowest level since October 2014. The index is down 8% year to date. Nearly all 500 members of the index closed with a loss. Both the Dow and the S&P 500 scored their biggest one-day percentage declines since August 2011.The Nasdaq Composite COMP, -3.82%  ended the day down 179.79 points, or 3.8% at 4,526.25.“Trading volumes are driven by ETFs today, but we are not seeing a lot of panic, where people dump large amounts of stocks in one go. There are still buyers out there, who are picking up stocks that have seen large corrections. However, volatility is back, so seeing large intraday and day-to-day swings is not surprising,” said Brian Fenske, head of sales trading at ITG.Sal Arnuk, co-head of equity trading at Themis Trading, described Monday’s open as painful. “There’s definitely blood on the street. You can check the level of the VIX,” Arnuk said.
