Major Averages Sink While Leadership Wanes

The major averages spent the day in the red but finished off the session lows after rebounding in the final hour. The volume totals were reported mixed, slightly higher on the NYSE and slightly lower on the Nasdaq exchange versus the prior session totals.  Breadth was negative as declining issues led advancing issues by a 3-1 margin on the NYSE and by more than 2-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. The total number of stocks hitting new 52-week highs waned but still outnumbered new 52-week lows on both exchanges. 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, less than half the prior session total of 57 stocks. The session concluded with gains for 19 of the 33 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page.

  

Disappointing data out of China and Europe weighed on pre-market action. Specifically, a preliminary reading of Chinese manufacturing unexpectedly fell, suggesting a contraction. Separately, European manufacturing activity also signaled contraction with a survey of purchasing managers falling more than projected. European markets were lower after the disappointing data. On our shores, weekly jobless claims came in better-than-expected, falling to 348,000 from 351,000. The Conference Board's index of leading indicators was expected to advance +0.6%.

Energy stocks were under pressure after France indicated industrialized nations may consider tapping strategic reserves. Chevron Corp (CVX -2.37%) fell while energy stocks were the worst performing sector, retreating over -2.0% on the session. Materials also showed weakness with Alcoa Inc (AA -2.53%) and Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold (FCX -3.69%) slumping. In earnings, FedEx Corp (FDX -3.46%) fell after the company's revenues missed analysts' expectations for the fiscal third-quarter. Dollar General (DG +3.11%) rallied following the company's better-than-expected tally in the fourth-quarter.

Treasury markets were higher on a flight to safety. The benchmark 10-year note was up 3/16 of a point to yield 2.28% and the 30-year bond advanced 11/32 to yield 3.37%

The major averages' (M criteria) uptrend has been underpinned by widespread leadership (stocks making new 52-week highs) as they have continued the prior rally. Disciplined investors may have a bias toward accumulating stocks meeting all key criteria of the fact-based system. As always, avoid chasing stocks extended too far from sound base patterns and be sure to limit losses if ever any stock falls more than -7% from your purchase price.

PICTURED: The Dow Jones Indusrial Average suffered a 3rd consecutive loss. It is testing an upward trendline connecting 3 prior lows over the October -March period. More damaging losses could start to raise concerns about the current rally's tenacity.

Commodity-Linked Groups Led Losses

The Retail Index ($RLX +0.03%) held its ground, which made it a standout on a widely negative session. Commodity-linked stocks were the biggest losers on Thursday as the Oil Services Index ($OSX -2.68%), Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -2.04%), and Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -1.99%) slumped.  The Bank Index ($BKX -1.62%) and Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -1.35%) also were a negative influence on the major averages. The tech sector was dragged lower by losses from the Networking Index ($NWX -1.06%) and the Semiconductor Index ($SOX -0.61%) while the Internet Index ($IIX -0.12%) and the Biotechnology Index ($BTK -0.01%) were little changed.  The Healthcare Index ($HMO -0.55%) rounded out the session with a modest loss.

PICTURED: The Oil Services Index ($OSX -2.68%) is slumping below its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and prior lows to test its 200-day moving average line with a 4th consecutive loss.

Volume-Driven Breakout Shoots to New High

Often, when a leading stock is setting up to breakout of a solid base it is highlighted in CANSLIM.net's Mid-Day Breakouts Report. Sometimes stocks are highlighted shortly after a technical breakout, yet while the potential buy candidate may still be considered action-worthy. The most relevant factors are noted in the report which alerts prudent CANSLIM oriented investors to place the issue in their watch list. After doing any necessary backup research, the investor is prepared to act after the stock triggers a technical buy signal (breaks above its pivot point on more than +50% average turnover) but before it gets too extended from a sound base. In the event the stock fails to trigger a technical buy signal and its price declines then it will simply be removed from the watch list. Disciplined investors know to buy as near as possible to the pivot point and avoid chasing stocks after they have rallied more than +5% above their pivot point. It is crucial to always limit losses whenever any stock heads the wrong direction, and disciplined investors sell if a struggling stock ever falls more than -7% from their purchase price.

Sturm Ruger & Co Inc (RGR +$5.63 or +13.31% to $47.93) was featured in the earlier mid-day report highlighted in yellow with pivot point cited based on its 52-week high plus 10 cents after a 5-week flat base pattern. It found support above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line while consolidating since hitting its old high on 2/22/12, and its considerable gap up gain today helped it hit a new 52-week high. The strong finish with more than 4 times average volume helped it clinch a technical buy signal.

It reported earnings +80% on +45% sales revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Its 3 latest quarterly comparisons showed strong earnings increases well above the +25% minimum guideline while sales revenues showed impressive acceleration. It also has a good annual earnings (A criteria). The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 204 in Mar '11 to 289 in Dec '11, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.

Keep in mind that it may be considered a riskier "late stage" base after it had a few legs up in 2011. Some mutual fund managers are also restricted by their fund family's rules from buying companies that make firearms, tobacco, or alcohol products.  Disciplined investors know their odds are most favorable if they accumulate shares within +5% of the pivot point, and they always limit losses by selling if every any stock falls more than -7% from their purchase price.

Last week it barely traded above its all-time high ($77.39 in Aug '08).

Rather than compromise, disciplined investors may sooner consider another Featured Stock when a fresh technical buy signal occurs.

After forming an advanced "3-weeks tight" base a new pivot point was cited based on its 2/29/12 high plus 10 cents while its color code was changed to yellow. Volume-driven gains may trigger a new (or add-on) technical buy signal, meanwhile its prior highs in the $381-384 area define support to watch on pullbacks along with its 50 DMA line.

Y - Color code is changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 52-week high plus 10 cents after a 12-week base. Disciplined investors will watch for a volume-driven gain above the pivot to confirm a technical buy signal before taking any action. Found support well above its 200 DMA line and it has now rebounded to within -4.2% of its 52-week high. Fundamentals remain strong since it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 1/11/12. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 128 in Mar '11 to 185 in Dec '11, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.

G - Down today with higher volume, yet it is up from the session's early lows following a gap down after an analyst downgrade. It recently had wedged up to a new 52-week high with gains lacking great volume conviction, and the last consolidation was noted as a little short of the 5-week minimum length for it to be considered a new flat base pattern. Its 50 DMA line coincides with the prior low in the $49 area, defining an important near-term support level to watch.

Y - Featured in yellow in the earlier mid-day report with pivot point cited based on its 52-week high plus 10 cents after a 5-week flat base pattern. It found support above its 50 DMA line while consolidating since hitting its old high on 2/22/12, and its considerable gap up gain today with mre than 4 times average volume helped it hit a new 52-week high and trigger a technical buy signal. Reported earnings +80% on +45% sales revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Its 3 latest quarterly comparisons showed strong earnings increases well above the +25% minimum guideline while sales revenues showed impressive acceleration.

A new pivot point was not cited, yet it has built a base-on-base pattern while consolidating above prior highs in the $17 area and above its 50 DMA line defining support to watch on pullbacks.

Y - Color code is changed to yellow after a brief consolidation in a tight range with mostly light volume. No new pivot point is cited, however they teach in the Certification that a stock may be bought from its first successful test of support at the 10-week moving average (WMA) up to +5% above the latest high following an earlier technical breakout. In this case that could be $88.65 on 2/28/12 plus another 5%, however the further one chases any stock above its pivot point the greater the chances are than an ordinary pullback may necessitate selling - as disciplined investors know to always limit losses if ever any stock falls more than 7% from their purchase price! Its 50 DMA line defines support to watch on pullbacks.
