Major Averages Had Small Losses on Lighter Volume Totals

Stocks took a breather on Wednesday's session and ended with modest losses. The volume totals were reported lighter than the prior session totals on both the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange.  Advancers and decliners were just about evenly matched on the NYSE but decliners led advancers by a 9-4 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 26 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, up a notch from the total of 25 stocks on the prior session. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. None of the 4 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page posted gains. The Market (M criteria) pullback earned the label of a "correction" as a result of recent pressure on the indices. Graphs in the commentary following last Thursday's action (read here) illustrated that recent weeks have been especially tough on many stocks which were high-ranked leaders in the previous rally. This is precisely how the fact-based investment system prompts investors to reduce their overall market exposure during weak periods.

 

The Dow was off 12 points to 16501. The S&P 500 snapped a six-day winning streak as it declined 4 points to 1,875. The NASDAQ lost 34 points to 4,126.

The major averages retreated amid a batch of disappointing economic data. New home sales unexpectedly dropped by -14.5% in March to an eight-month low amid record prices and higher mortgage rates. Meanwhile, the preliminary reading on a U.S. manufacturing gauge surprisingly decreased to 55.4 in April from a final reading of 55.5 a month earlier. In addition, a measure of manufacturing in China contracted for the fourth consecutive month.
Overall, sectors finished mixed. Telecommunications and technology were the worst performing groups. AT&T (T -3.78%) as phone installment plans weighed on the company's profit outlook. Apple (AAPL -1.31%) and Facebook (FB -2.65%) fell a head of their earnings reports after the close. Gains in energy and industrials helped limit losses. EOG Resources (EOG +2.68%) and Boeing (BA +2.41%) rose after posting quarterly earnings and revenue above analyst expectations.
Treasuries rose and a government auction of five-year notes received stronger-than-average demand. The 10-year note was up 6/32 to yield 2.69%. The 30-year bond gained half of a point to yield 3.47%.
To shift the market stance (M criteria) back to a "confirmed uptrend" requires a solid follow-through day or one or more of the major indices rallying to new high territory. Keep in mind that any sustained and meaningful market advance requires a healthy crop of stocks hitting new highs. The CANSLIM.net Featured Stocks Page shows the most action-worthy candidates and their latest notes and a Headline Link directs members to the latest detailed analysis with data-packed graphs annotated by a Certified expert along with links to additional resources.  The Premium Member Homepage includes "dynamic archives" to all prior pay reports published.

PICTURED: The Nasdaq Composite Index recently found support at its 200-day moving average (DMA) line and near prior lows.

G - Finished near the session high with near average volume behind its gain today. Halted its slide above its 200 DMA line but recent gains came on very light volume. Its Relative Strength rating improved to 84, above the 80+ minimum rank for buy candidates under the fact-based system. A rebound above the 50 DMA line is needed to help its outlook.
