Dow Jones Industrials and S&P 500 Close at New Record Highs

Monday's session kicked off the week on a positive note. Behind the major indices' gains the volume was reported lighter than the prior session totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, revealing a lack of serious institutional buying demand. Breadth was solidly positive as advancers led decliners by nearly a 4-1 margin on the Nasdaq exchange and more than 4-1 on the NYSE. Leadership expanded as there were 45 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 total of 18 stocks on the prior session. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for all 6 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks PageThe Market (M criteria) earned the label of returning to a "confirmed uptrend" as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 Index both tallied gains into new high territory. New buying efforts should be selective and only focused in stocks meeting all key criteria of the fact-based investment system. Keep in mind that any sustained and meaningful market advance requires leadership - a healthy crop of stocks hitting new 52-week highs.

 

The Dow gained 112 points to a new record close of 16,695. The S&P 500 also rose to a fresh all-time high as it advanced 18 points of 1,896. The NASDAQ increased more than 71 points to 4,143.
Eight of the 10 S&P 500 sectors finished in positive territory. A rebound in technology from last week's retreat paced the advance as Apple (AAPL +1.24%) and Facebook (FB +4.52%) both rose. Materials were also among the best performing stocks as copper jumped to a two-month high, and Freeport-McMoRan (FCX +2.89%) posted a solid gain. The more defensive utilities and telecommunications sectors lagged behind as Exelon (EXC -2.21%) and Verizon (VZ -0.66%) both declined. M&A activity also helped lift the market. Pinnacle Foods (PF +13.2%) rose after Hillshire Brands agreed to buy the company for about $6.6 billion.
On the economic front, the Treasury Department said the government ran a surplus of $106.9 billion in April, keeping the budget on track for the lowest annual deficit in six years.
Treasury prices declined for a second day. The 10-year note lost 7/32 to yield 2.65%. The 30-year bond fell 13/32 to yield 3.49%.

Rose Beyond "Max Buy" Level With 7th Consecutive Gain

Trinity Industries Inc (TRN +$2.04 or +2.60% to $80.39) gapped up and hit another new 52-week high and its color code was changed to green after today's 7th consecutive gain while rallying above the "max buy" level. On 5/02/14 a strong close above the pivot point clinched a technical buy signal as it tallied a gain backed by +82% above average volume. It rallied further above its pivot point on 5/06/14 with a gain backed by +86% above average volume. 

TRN was last shown in this FSU section on 4/30/14 with annotated graphs under the headline, "Finished Near Session Lows After Encountering Distributional Pressure", after highlighted in yellow with pivot point cited based on its 3/21/14 high plus 10 cents in the earlier mid-day report (read here).Prior highs in the $75-76 area define near-term support to watch on pullbacks. Disciplined investors avoid chasing stocks extended more than +5% above prior highs and they always limit losses by selling any stock that falls more than -7% from their purchase price.

The Transportation - Equipment Manufacturing firm reported earnings +213% on +57% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter, and prior quarterly comparisons were above the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria). Annual earnings (A criteria) have improved following a downturn in FY '08-10. It found support at its 50-day moving average (DMA) line recently while making gradual progress. Its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.7 is an unbiased indication that its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days.

Y - Better candidates highlighted by our staff of experts.
G - Previously featured in past reports as yellow but may no longer be buyable under the guidelines.

G - Reported earnings +14% on +27% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter, below the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria), raising fundamental concerns. Rebounded near its 50 DMA line with today's gain on near average volume following 3 consecutive losses after a "negative reversal" on the 5/07/14 at its 52-week high. That short-term average may act as resistance. Did not trigger a new (or add-on) technical buy signal since a new pivot point was cited.
