Correction Prompting Members to Reduce Market Exposure

Stocks suffered a setback on Thursday. The volume totals behind the damaging losses were reported higher on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, a sign of heavier selling pressure coming from the institutional crowd. Decliners led advancers by nearly a 4-1 margin on the NYSE and by more than 7-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 5 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 15 stocks on the prior session. The list of stocks hitting new 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE but new lows outnumbered new highs on the Nasdaq exchange. There were losses for all 5 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page, a list that has grown shorter as numerous leaders have broken down in recent weeks.  The Market (M criteria) pullback earned the label of a "correction" as a result of recent pressure on the indices, especially the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index, coupled with waning leadership (fewer stocks hitting new 52-week highs).  Investors are reminded to limit losses by always selling any stock that falls more than -7% from their purchase price. This is precisely how the fact-based investment system prompts investors to reduce their overall market exposure during weak periods.

 

The Dow was down 266 points to 16,170. The S&P 500 fell 39 points to 1,833. The NASDAQ lost 129 points to 4,054, its largest decline since November 2011. The major averages dropped and erased a two-day advance amid a resumed selloff in momentum stocks. Health care was the worst performing group as biotechnology stocks including Gilead Sciences (GILD -6.7%) and Amgen (AMGN -4.4%) fell hard. Losses in technology also dragged the market lower as Microsoft (MSFT -2.6%) and Facebook (FB -4.8%) both lost ground. Consumer stocks were also under pressure. Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY -6.3%) fell after the retailer reported weak same-store sales and delivered a disappointing first-quarter outlook.
Earnings results will stay in focus as Friday's profit tally from JP Morgan Chase & Co (JPM )kicks off the reporting season for banks. The defensive telecommunications sector was the relative outperformer as it finished only marginally lower. AT&T (T +0.9%) and Windstream Holdings (WIN +2.5%) rose.
Treasury prices rallied and a government auction of 30-year debt attracted above average demand. The 10-year note gained 12/32 to yield 2.64%. The 30-year bond rose by a full point to yield 3.52%.
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 ended near the session low after violating its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and undercutting prior lows. The technical deterioration added emphasis on the importance for investors to use caution and currently aim toward reducing market exposure.

Tech Sector Leads Broad Declines in All Groups

The Biotechnology Index ($BTK -5.64%) led the tech sector's pullback as the Semiconductor Index ($SOX -3.16%) and the Networking Index ($NWX -3.05%) also suffered large losses on Thursday. The Retail Index ($RLX -2.98%) was a negative influence along with weakness in financial shares as the Bank Index ($BKX -2.95%) and the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -2.79%) tumbled. Commodity-linked groups also had a negative bias as the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -1.71%), Oil Services Index ($OSX -1.49%), and the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -1.66%) fell.

PICTURED: The Semiconductor Index ($SOX -3.16%) sank near its 50-day moving average (DMA) line with a big loss.

Violated 50-Day Average and Relative Strength Rank Fell

Iconix Brand Group Inc (ICON -$0.32 or -0.84% to $37.69) erased an early gain today and ended near the session low with a loss. After slumping back into its prior base weeks ago it had initially found support at its 50-day moving average (DMA) line. However, the recent deterioration below its 50 DMA line raised more concerns and triggered a technical sell signal. A rebound above the 50 DMA line would help its outlook.  Meanwhile, its Relative Strength rating (see red circle on weekly graph below) has slumped to 76, below the 80+ minimum guideline for buy candidates. Also, the number of top-rated funds owning its shares fell from 359 in Sep '13 to 346 in Mar '14, not a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.

ICON was last shown in this FSU section on 3/25/14 with annotated graphs under the headline, "Falling Back Under Prior Highs Raises Concerns", while a loss on higher (above average) volume indicated that it was encountering distributional pressure. Members were reminded - "Disciplined investors always limit losses by selling any stock that falls more than -7% from their purchase price."

Fundamentals remain strong for the high-ranked Apparel - Clothing Manufacturing firm. It reported earnings +32% on +24% sales revenues for the Dec '13 quarter, marking its 4th consecutive quarterly earnings increase above the +25% guideline (C criteria). Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been steady.
