Major Averages Halt String of Losses With Small Gains on Lighter Volume

The Dow Jones Industrial Average snapped a string of 6 consecutive losses and the S&P 500 Index increased from a two-month low as each posted a small gain, meanwhile the Nasdaq Composite Index finished Thursday's session just one point in the red. The volume totals were reported lighter on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange versus the prior session. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by about 3-2 on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. The list of stocks hitting new 52-week highs expanded and outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 27 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 prior session total of 11 stocks. The session concluded with gains for 21 of the 40 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page.

 

A better-than-expected jobs report prompted a return to risk assets as weekly jobless claims fell to a one-month low last week to 367,000. Import prices registered their largest drop in 10 months, easing inflation concerns. Hopes for a breakthrough in Greece's political impasse also emerged to aid the market as another party attempted to form a coalition government.

Most sectors traded higher with investor sentiment on the rise. Financials including Wells Fargo & Company (WFC +1.72%) bounced back to lead the way after Fed Chairman Bernanke said the sector and the banking system have improved significantly.  . Losses in technology stocks held the Nasdaq down as Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO -10.49%) fell after posting disappointing guidance as customers turned more cautious about Europe.  Activision Blizzard Inc (ATVI +2.74%) rose after earnings beat estimates, and News Corp (NWS +5.10%) rallied after it posted upbeat quarterly results and doubled its commitment to buying back shares. First-quarter earnings season continues to wind down, and after the closing bell Nordstrom Inc (JWN -0.72%) and Express Scripts Holding Co (ESRX +0.82%) were reporting.

Treasury prices pared earlier losses after the government's $16 billion auction of 30-year bonds garnered solid demand. The long-bond lost 18/32 to yield 3.05% and the 10-year note fell 8/32 to yield 1.88%.

Distributional action from the major averages' (M criteria) argues this is technically yet another market "correction".  Disciplined investors know that following proper rules for buying and selling increases their likelihood of getting the "above average" returns they are seeking.  Be proactive about reducing market exposure and raising cash. Do not fight the tape in the days ahead.  The fact-based system argues that new buying efforts should be avoided until the major averages manage to halt their current slide and eventually post gains followed by a strong follow-through-day which confirms a new rally attempt. In the Certification they teach that the next confirmed rally can always be just 4 days away. Stay tuned!

PICTURED: The S&P 500 Index is below its 50-day moving average (DMA) line, and the longer it lingers below that important short-term average the worse its outlook gets. Recent lows define near-term support that nearly coincides with its 2011 resistance.

Networking Index Slumping Toward 2011 Lows

Financial shares were mixed with the Bank Index ($BKX +0.95%) posting a gain while the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -0.41%) edged lower. The tech sector saw losses led by the Networking Index ($NWX -2.76%), followed by the Internet Index ($IIX -1.37%) and a small loss for the Semiconductor Index ($SOX -0.36%).  There was little change for the Retail Index ($RLX +0.09%), Oil Services Index ($OSX -0.04%), and the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -0.03%), yet the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +0.84%) tallied a decent gain.  Medical related shares had a slightly positive bias as the Biotechnology Index ($BTK +0.64%) and the Healthcare Index ($HMO +0.24%) rose.

PICTURED: The Networking Index ($NWX -2.76%) is slumping well below its 50-day and 200-day moving average (DMA) lines toward its 2011 lows. The group was a standout laggard while Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO -10.49%) fell after posting disappointing guidance

Fundamentals and Technicals Show Deterioration Not Strength

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. 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.

Steve Madden Ltd (SHOO -$0.00 or -0.00% to $40.69) faced distributional pressure amid a recent market downdraft that was particularly hard on many Retail/Apparel related firms. It was featured in yellow in the mid-day report on 4/27/12 (read here) with pivot point cited based on its 3/26/12 high while working on a "double bottom" base pattern.  Disciplined investors avoided harm by patiently waiting for proof of fresh institutional buying demand. Subsequent volume-driven gains above the pivot point never triggered a technical buy signal. Its color code was changed to green on 5/03/12 after earnings growth for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 versus the year ago period was below the +25% minimum guideline. Subsequent technical deterioration below the recent low ($40.91 on 4/24/12) with a streak of volume-driven losses raised more serious concerns.

Sales revenues had shown impressive acceleration in the Jun, Sep, and Dec '11 quarterly comparisons with earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline.  The high-ranked Apparel firm's annual earnings history (A criteria) since FY '07 has been good.  Top-rated funds owning an interest increased from 354 in Jun '11 to 372 in Mar '12, which is good news concerning the I criteria. Regardless of any stock's mostly favorable characteristics, keep in mind that 3 out of 4 stocks follow the direction of the major averages (M criteria).

Sub par earnings increases in the 2 latest quarterly reports (Dec '11 and Mar '12) raised fundamental concerns. Its prior low ($122.78 on 4/10/12) defines the next important support to watch where any violation would trigger a more worrisome technical sell signal.

G - Pulling back today after holding its ground last week. Quickly got extended from its prior base after it triggered a technical buy signal on 4/26/12 as it was featured in the mid-day report and noted - "Reported earnings +43% on +39% sales revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 versus the year ago period. It held its ground stubbornly after violating its 50 DMA line when a damaging loss with above average volume triggered technical sell signals on 4/10/12 and it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list. Earnings below the +25% guideline for the Dec '11 quarter (+21%) had also raised fundamental concerns at that time, however the stock's resilience and impressive acceleration means that 3 of the past 4 quarterly comparisons are now above the minimum guideline concerning the C criteria. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been strong."
