Major Averages Rose With Less Volume Conviction Behind Gains

On Thursday the markets ended higher on the session, albeit off of their best levels. The volume totals were reported lighter than the prior trading session's volume totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, a sign that the institutional crowd was not increasing their buying efforts. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by more than a 3-1 ratio on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 20 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, up from the total of 8 stocks on the prior session. The list of stocks hitting new 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE and also on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 11 of the 14 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page, a list that has recently been waning. The Market (M criteria) has encountered distributional pressure and leadership (stocks hitting new highs) has waned, earning the label of being in another "correction". Such weakness serves as a reminder for investors to use caution and remain disciplined in following proper sell rules under the fact-based investment system to reduce market exposure.

 

Stocks traded higher throughout the session as investors responded to a batch of better-than-expected corporate earnings and an encouraging report on fourth-quarter GDP. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 109 points to 15,848, after being up by as many as 168 points. The S&P 500 advanced just under 20 points to 1,794. The Nasdaq Composite Index added 71 points with the index closing at 4,123, rebounding above its 50-day moving average line.
All 10 sectors on the S&P ended higher, led by a rally in health care stocks. Shares of Alexion Pharmaceuticals (ALXN +21.1%) after the company's quarterly earnings topped analysts' estimates. Social media stocks also posted strong gains. Facebook Inc (FB +14.1%) rallied to a new high as strong growth in mobile ad sales helped the company post stronger-than-anticipated results. Also in the space, LinkedIn (LNKD +4%) and Twitter Inc (TWTR +6.7%) rose.
Turning to fixed income markets, Treasuries were lower along the curve. The benchmark 10-year note was down 5/32 to yield 2.70% and the 30-year bond gave up 11/32 to yield 3.64%.
Investors should be watchful for any individual issues flashing technical sell signals. 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. Watch for an announcement via email concerning the next WEBCAST.
PICTURED: The S&P 500 Index recently violated its 50-day moving average (DMA) line with volume-driven losses. The Dow Jones Industrial Average also remain below its respective short-term moving averages.

Retail, Financial, and Tech Groups Posted Gains

The Oil Services Index ($OSX +0.63%) posted a modest gaoin while the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +0.04%) finished flat. The financial indexes including the Bank Index ($BKX +1.05%) and the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +1.44%) underpinned Thursday's gains for the major averages and the Retail Index ($RLX +1.58%) was also an important positive influence. The Biotechnology Index ($BTK +2.89%) led the tech sector's rally and the Networking Index ($NWX +1.76%) and Semiconductor Index ($SOX +1.30%) both also posted solid gains.

Fundamental and Technical Weakness Noted as Serious Concerns

Celgene Corp (CELG  -$4.48 or -2.83% to $153.98) was down again today with above average volume, raising greater concerns while slumping further below its 50-day moving average (DMA) line. It reported earnings +14% on +21% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, well below the +25% minimum eaernings guideline (C criteria)  for buy candidates. Based on fundamental and technical weakness it will be dropped from the Featured Stocks list tonight. Losses undercutting prior lows in the $157 area and its 50 DMA line were recently noted as the damaging declines triggered technical sell signals.

CELG's last appearance in this FSU section was on 1/07/14 with annotated graphs under the headline, "Found Support Above 50-Day Average After Gapping Down on Prior Session". At that time members were cautioned - "Fundamental flaws may be considered an over-riding concern arguing against new buying efforts. It reported earnings +21% on +18% sales revenues for the Sep '13 quarter. below the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) - (see red circle on daily graph). Its C+ rating for Accumulation/Distribution is also cause for some concern."

The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 1,856 in Mar '13 to 2,037 in Dec '13, a reassuring trend concerning the I criteria.  However, the company is already well-known by the institutional crowd, and that means that very few are likely to just be discovering it.

Y - Better candidates highlighted by our staff of experts.

Y - Reported earnings +82% on +63% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter. Gapped up and hit a new 52-week high today after finding support at its 50 DMA line during its latest consolidation. Color code is changed to yellow. Market conditions argue against new buying efforts until a FTD from at least one of the major averages confirms a new rally. One may consider a valid secondary buy point from its successful test of the 10 week average up to +5% above the recent high ($59.31 on 1/22/14).

Broader market conditions (M criteria) argue for caution until at least one of the major averages produces a convincing follow through day of gains on higher volume.
