8/26/15 Wed. am Dow is Down 12.10% YTD
by Dan Kolber

Post No. 3,313 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  & 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  15666.44 down 204.91 or 1.29% from Monday's close of 15871.28. For the year the Dow is down 12.10%. Of the 30   Dow components   2 gained  and  28 declined.  The  biggest gainer dollar-wise   and percentage-wise was Apple up 62 cents or 0.6%. The  biggest decliner dollar-wise  and percentage-wise was Merck down $2.82 or 5.22%.

WSJ pA1 "Late tumble dashes hope for rebound" by Lingling Wei, Ira Iosebashvilli says  the Dow gave up big early gains to tumble 1.3% in the final minutes.  The Dow has shed 11% after 6 straight days of losses.

IBD pB5 "sellers not done: market erases morning rebound" by Vincent Mao says a late round of selling spiled a comeback as the action was rebound falters; trade slides & the current outlook is market is in correction.

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 0.14967727343149.  Wednesday's trailing P/E   ratio is 14.99 down  from yesterday's   trailing P/E ratio of  15.19 (last year it was 16.18).  Today's P/E estimate is 15.57 unchanged from Tuesday's P/E estimate of 15.57 (year ago it was 15.05) and  today's dividend yield is  2.72 up  from yesterday's dividend yield of  2.71 (last year it was 2.19). 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.

Tuesday's closing Dow Jones Industrial Average numerator is 2344.91 down 30.66 from Monday's closing average numerator of 2375.57.   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  Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $78.16 down $1.03  from  Monday's closing average of $79.19.  The median closing price of  Tuesday's Dow Jones Industrial Average was $71.04 (CVX/CAT) down $1.43  from  Tuesday's median closing price of $72.47 (CVX/CAT).  The lowest volume was Travelers 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  $3,066  ($237,557 -$234,491).

8/25/15 Tues. 4:45 pm MarketWatch by  Anora Mahmudova & Sara Sjolin says in a dramatic reversal to a morning rally, U.S. stocks relinquished all of its opening gains, and then some, to finish with sharp losses. The main indexes began trimming gains in afternoon trade, falling into negative territory ahead of the closing bell as selling accelerated in the final hour. "We would have preferred stocks open flat and rally into the close. Today’s action is not a good news for those who were expecting a V-shaped recovery,” said Michael Antonelli, equity sales trader at R.W Baird & Co.
“Unlike the pullback last October, this correction has a serious tone to it — there are serious global growth issues that are not going to be resolved any time soon. We expect the correction to last longer,” Antonelli added. Trading on Wall Street remained volatile, with the CBOE Volatility index VIX, -11.59% otherwise known as the Wall Street’s fear gauge, trading at 36, the highest level since 2011.The S&P 500 SPX, -1.35% turned big gains into losses and closed down 25.59 points, or 1.4%, at 1,867.61. Utilities and telecoms saw the biggest losses. The benchmark index is firmly in correction territory, having fallen 12% from its peak reached on May 21. On a percentage basis, Tuesday’s move marked the largest swing in the index, before closing negative, since October 2008 during the financial crisis. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -1.29%  which at session highs was up more than 400 points, ended with a loss of 204.91 points, or 1.3%, at 15,666.44.
The Nasdaq Composite COMP, -0.44%  ended the day down 19.76 points, or 0.4% at 4,506.49.
“The kind of volatility we saw over the past week is normal historically. This is what risk premium means,” said Colleen Supran, a principal at San Francisco-based Bingham, Osborn & Scarborough.“We don’t know whether the correction is over or not, but usually when volatility picks up, it gains momentum,” Supran said.
