Major Averages Ended Mixed and Little Changed

On Tuesday the major indices finished mixed and little changed. The volume was reported lighter than the prior session total on the NYSE and higher on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was negative as decliners led advancers by a 2-1 margin on the Nasdaq exchange and by a narrower 8-7 margin on the NYSE. Leadership expanded as there were 46 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, up a notch from the total of 45 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 3 of the 6 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks PageThe Market (M criteria) earned the label of returning to a "confirmed uptrend" on Monday 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 rose 20 points to close at an all-time high of 16,715. The S&P 500 briefly climbed above 1,900 before ending the session up a point to a record level of 1,897. The NASDAQ declined 14 points to 4,130.
The major averages were mixed as investors weighed a reading on the consumer. Before the open, retail sales rose a less-than-projected 0.1% in April while the March reading was unexpectedly revised higher to 1.5%. Additional releases showed small business sentiment improved last month and import prices fell -0.4%.
On the earnings front, medical supply wholesaler McKesson (MCK +3.31%) gained after quarterly profits beat estimates. Rackspace (RAX +8.54%) rose following its better-than-expected results.
Energy and consumer staples were the best performing sectors. Chevron (CVX +0.49%) inched higher. Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR +7.55%) rose after Coca-Cola (KO +0.71%) said it plans to increase its stake in the company to 16% from 10%. Homebuilders rose with D.R. Horton (DHI +1.99%) up after the FHFA Director announced plans to make it easier for consumers to obtain mortgages. Telecom was down the most on the session. AT&T (T -1.01%) fell on reports the company is in talks to buy DirecTV (DTV -1.24%) for approximately $50 billion.
Treasuries advanced with benchmark 10-year note up 15/32 to yield 2.61%.

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