Major Averages Fell and Uncertainty Leaves Concerns

On Wednesday the major indices finished lower. The volume was reported slightly higher than the prior session total on the NYSE and lower on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was negative as decliners led advancers by a 3-2 margin on the NYSE and by almost a 3-1 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. Leadership contracted as there were 13 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 46 stocks on the prior session. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE but new lows outnumbered new highs on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 2 of the 6 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks PageIt was recently noted that the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 Index both tallied gains into new high territory. Technically that is favorable, however, uncertain market action overall has led the newspaper to still hold off from officially shifting its view that the market direction (M criteria) is back in a "confirmed uptrend". While awaiting a more definitive read on the market any new buying efforts should be very 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.

 

On Wednesday the Dow lost 101 points to 16,613. The S&P 500 fell more than 8 points to 1,888. Equities retreated as investors took a breather after the Dow and S&P 500 closed at record highs in consecutive sessions. As a result, most sectors declined.
Consumer discretionary stocks paced the retreat. Amazon.com (AMZN -2.3%) and Walt Disney (DIS -1.4%) fell. Industrials were also under pressure. Deere (DE -2.04%) led the group lower after the company posted weak sales and reduced its full-year revenue outlook. Financials also weighed on the market as insurance companies declined. MetLife (MET -2.11%) and shares of Prudential (PRU -2.39%) slid. In technology, Cisco Systems (CSCO -0.22%) edged lower ahead of its earnings report after the close.
On the upside, the more defensive sectors of telecommunications and utilities advanced as AT&T (T +0.52%) and ONEOK (OKE +1.9%) both rose.
Treasury prices increased for a second day. The 10-year note rose 18/32 to yield 2.54%. The 30-year bond gained more than a full point to yield 3.37%.
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.

PICTURED: The Nasdaq Composite Index declined 29 points to 4,100. It found support when consolidating above its 200-day moving average (DMA) line, but needs a rebound above its 50 DMA line for its technical stance to improve. Meanwhile, the 50 DMA line has been downward sloping for weeks, a sign that it has been struggling for a long while now.

Y - Reported earnings +33% on +11% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter, continuing its streak of earning increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Finished in the upper third of its intra-day range today after slumping near its 50 DMA line. A violation of that short-term average would raise concerns and trigger a technical sell signal. Confirming gains above the pivot point with above average volume could trigger a new (or add-on) technical buy signal.
