Major Averages Rise With Quieter Volume

The major averages ended higher on Tuesday after Goldman Sachs (GS -2.05%) said Q1 earnings almost doubled and reaffirmed that it did not mislead investors. Volume, an important indicator of institutional sponsorship, slid compared to Monday's totals, revealing a lack of serious buying conviction from the institutional crowd. Advancers led decliners by over a 4-to-1 ratio on the Nasdaq exchange and by a 3-to-1 ratio on the NYSE. New 52-week highs still easily trumped new lows on both exchanges. There were 37 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made a new 52-week high and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, higher than the 16 issues that appeared on the prior session. A healthy crop of new leaders making new highs bodes well for any market rally, but that number abruptly contracted amid the latest bout of distribution.

Before Tuesday's opening bell, investment giant, Goldman Sachs said Q1 earnings rose +61% compared to the first quarter in 2009 as sales surged +21%. Net income, which excludes all misc expenses almost doubled in the first quarter which bodes well for the financial industry. However, the stock encountered resistance near its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and 200 DMA line and closed lower as investors are still concerned about the ongoing SEC investigation. After Tuesday's close, three prominent tech stocks released their latest quarterly results: Apple Inc. (AAPL -1.00%), Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO -0.05%), and Cree Inc. (CREE +2.62%) all reported solid quarterly results. All three stocks reported very strong results and topped analysts estimates, so it will be interesting to see how they close tomorrow. 

Remember, it is important to note that the major averages have been steadily rallying since early February and a pullback of some sort should be expected. The prior commentary's observation, "Since the March 1, 2010 follow-though-day (FTD) a handful of distribution days has not been the least bit damaging to the market's confirmed rally" - was immediately followed with the 6th distribution day for the S&P 500 Index, a sign of mounting pressure on this 8-week rally. Trade accordingly.

Oil Services Index Surges To New Recovery High

The Bank Index ($BKX +2.68%) posted a solid gain while the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -0.49%) edged lower.  The tech sector had a positive bias as the Internet Index ($IIX +1.32%), Semiconductor Index ($SOX +1.55%), and Networking Index ($NWX +1.79%) each posted better than +1% gains. Modest gains from the Retail Index ($RLX +0.52%) and Healthcare Index ($HMO +0.98%) helped underpin the major averages' gains, and strength in energy shares lifted the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +1.60%).  Meanwhile the The Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -0.27%) edged lower and Biotechnology Index ($BTK +0.12%) edged higher.

PICTURED: The Oil Services Index ($OSX +4.01%) was a standout gainer on Tuesday. Its considerable gain helped it blast to a new recovery high, which may bode well for certain stocks in the energy group going forward.

Higher Volume Totals Would Be More Telling For Extended Leader

Baidu.com, Inc. (BIDU +$22.34 or +3.64% to $635.84) posted a gain today, fully repairing the prior session's considerable loss. It has been repeatedly noted as extended from any sound base after 10 consecutive weekly gains, however it could produce more climactic gains, especially due to the small supply (S criteria) of shares outstanding. No overhead supply exists to hinder its progress, but it is too extended from any sound base to be bought within the guidelines now. It has risen remarkably from $357 when appearing in this FSU section on 9/08/09 under the headline Baidu Near Multi-Year Highs, But Decelerating Growth Is A Concern.

The high-ranked Internet- Content firm saw a slight decline in the number of top-rated funds owning shares from 204 in Dec '09 to 196 in Mar '10.  It still has a stellar sales and earnings history that satisfies the C & A criteria. However it has not formed any recent sound base and is extended from an earlier "double bottom" base pattern that was identified based upon its December low and January's lower low. Technically it triggered a technical buy signal and was featured in yellow on 1/13/10 as it cleared the 12/29/09 high mentioned in the 1/12/10 note. (See the "view all notes" links to review prior analysis on any stock.)
