Losses on Friday Led the Major Averages Lower for the Week

Due to Friday's losses, the major averages finished lower on the week. The Dow closed with a weekly loss of -0.3%, the S&P 500 gave up less than -0.1% and the NASDAQ lost -0.5%.  The volume total rose versus the prior session on the Nasdaq exchange while volume was slightly lower on the NYSE. Decliners led advancers by a 2-1 margin on the NYSE and by a 5-1 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 11 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, down from the total of 34 stocks on the prior session. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE while new lows outnumbered new highs on the Nasdaq exchange. Only 1 of the 4 of the high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page posted a gain. The setback on Friday leaves investors still waiting for more significant gains from the major indices backed by heavier volume, action which would be a meaningful improvement that more convincingly argues the Market (M criteria) is shifting back to a confirmed uptrend. Meanwhile, caution is still warranted. Keep in mind that any sustained and meaningful market advance requires leadership - a healthy crop of stocks hitting new 52-week highs.

 

Stocks ended the week on a down note. The Dow fell 140 points to 16361. The S&P 500 lost 15 points to 1863 and the NASDAQ declined 72 points to 4,075.

Geopolitical concerns pressured equities today as Russia started military drills near the Ukrainian border following the killing of pro-Moscow rebels. Mixed economic data added to investor hesitation. A measure of consumer confidence unexpectedly jumped to a nine-month high in April while an index of business activity in the services sector dropped to the lowest level since last October.
Overall, nine of the 10 S&P 500 sectors finished in negative territory. Consumer discretionary paced the retreat. Amazon.com (AMZN -9.7%) after issuing disappointing current-quarter guidance and Ford (F -3.1%) following a weaker-than-anticipated profit tally. Losses in technology and financials also weighed on the market. Broadcom (BRCM -4.5%) and Visa (V -4.8%) after both companies posted earnings results below analyst estimates.
Treasury prices advanced for a third day. The 10-year note gained 3/32 to yield 2.67%. The 30-year bond was up 2/32 to yield 3.45%.
