Major Averages Rose With Lighter Volume Conviction

Monday's volume totals were reported lighter than the prior trading session's volume totals on the Nasdaq exchange and on the NYSE, suggesting that institutional buying demand was not on the rise. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by about a 3-2 ratio on the NYSE and 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, down from the total of 28 stocks on the prior session. The list of stocks hitting new 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the Nasdaq exchange and on the NYSE, an encouraging improvement. There were gains for 8 of the 10 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page, a list that has recently been waning. The Market (M criteria) has a nascent rally attempt under way. Remember that for any rally to be sustained it is critical for there to be "healthy" leadership - many stocks hitting new 52-week highs.

 

The major averages ended little changed on the session after toggling between gains and losses as investors focused on the Fed and earnings results. Fed Chair Yellen will deliver an update on monetary policy to the House on Tuesday which may provide insight on the status of the central bank's stimulus measures.
Most sectors on the S&P ended higher. Health care stocks showed strength with shares of Gilead Sciences (GILD +2.8%). On the earnings front, a disappointing holiday season dragged on Hasbro's (HAS +4.53%) fourth-quarter profit yet the company boosted its dividend. In other news, shares of McDonald's (MCD -1.1%) fell despite posting better-than-expected global same-store sales in January. Online review website Yelp Inc (YELP +1.9%) rose on reports that the company had reached a strategic partnership deal with Yahoo! Inc (YHOO +1.42%). Notable profit tallies from Rackspace (RAX +2.15%) and Masco (MAS -1.45%) were due out after Monday's close.
Treasury prices ended modestly higher. The 10-year note was up 2/16 of a point to yield 2.68% and the 30-year bond gained 13/32 to yield 3.66%.

PICTURED: The S&P 500 Index rebounded near its 50-day moving average (DMA) line on Monday for what may be considered "Day 3" of a new rally attempt. Prior commentaries published here pointed out that last Wedneday's lows undercut Tuesday's lows for all of the major indices. Under the fact-based investment system it is most ideal for at least one of the major averages to produce as solid follow-through day (FTD) of big gains on higher volume between Days 4-7 of a new rally effort. Use caution and remain disciplined in following proper sell rules under the fact-based investment system.

Hovering Near All-Time Highs Extended From Sound Base

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc (VRX +$0.20 or +0.15% to $138.13) is hovering quietly near all-time highs, extended from any sound base. Its 50-day moving average (DMA) line ($122) defines near-term support to watch. VRX was last shown in this FSU section on 1/21/14 with annotated daily and weekly graphs under the headline, "Bullish Action Has Continued Despite Fundamental Concerns", as it touched a new all-time high ($140.36) then reversed into the red. 

Bullish action continued since it reported earnings +24% on +74% sales revenues for the Sep '13 quarter, a notch below the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria), so prior reports cautioned members -"While it may be forming a sound new base, fundamentals may be an overriding concern."  Earnings rose +33% on +34% sales revenues for the Jun '13 quarter, above the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria) a strong follow-up after concerns had been raised by its Mar '13 earnings report with only a +14% earnings increase (see red circles). A downturn in FY '07 and '08 earnings (A criteria) has been followed by a strong earnings rebound in recent years.  Return On Equity is currently reported at 37%, well above the 17% minimum guideline of the fact-based system.

The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 818 in Mar '12 in to 1,060 in Dec '13, a reassuring trend concerning the I criteria. The high-ranked Medical - Ethical Drugs firm's shares spiked higher in late May at around the time of M&A news that it would buy Bausch & Lomb for $8.7 billion. It completed Public Offering on 6/18/13. The upshot of Public Offerings is that when completed the end result is typically an increase in the total number of institutional owners. Institutional owners are often supportive of their existing positions and will even accumulate more shares when they consolidate near classic support levels like the 50-day and 200-day moving average (DMA) lines, if they are still believers in the company. If too many become pessimistic and decide to unload, this is what ends up sending the stocks slicing through support. 

Prior reports noted - "Investors are taught in the Certification to only buy stocks with a combination of both strong fundamentals and strong technical action, however stocks should be sold based on their technical action only. In this example, more bullish action rewarded patient investors still giving it the benefit of the doubt until any technical sell signals start adding up."

Y - Holding its ground at its 52-week high following a "breakaway gap" on the prior session new all-time highs. Reported strong +73% earnings on +59% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, continuing its strong earnings record. Color code was changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 12/19/13 high plus 10 cents. Considerable volume-driven gain triggered a technical buy signal, however the broader market (M criteria) environment still argues for caution until at least one of the major averages produces a solid follow-through day of gains on higher volume.
