Major Averages Rise On Lighter Volume

The tone of the stock market quickly improved after a slow start on Wednesday, and the market added to its advance after the minutes of the April FOMC meeting suggested the central bank may not raise interest rates this year. Advancing issues beat decliners by about 3-1 on both the NYSE and the Nasdaq. Volume totals were reported lighter than the prior session totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, revealing a lack of great buying conviction coming from the institutional crowd. New 52-week highs easily outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE, but 52-week lows were evenly matched with new highs on the Nasdaq exchange.  There were 32 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 on the prior session. On the Featured Stocks Page there were 13 gainers out of the 15 high-ranked leaders currently included.

  

Oil prices rose back above $100 per barrel after dropping to a three-month low yesterday. The Energy Department released its survey of U.S. oil and gasoline stockpiles and inventories unexpectedly declined last week. Chevron Corp (CVX +2.4%) was a standout among the Dow Industrials while energy and mining stocks were among the top performers. Raw materials from copper to crude rallied on the outlook for increased demand from emerging markets.

Analog Devices Inc (ADI +5.9%), Dell Inc (DELL +5.35%) and Target Corp (TGT +1.61%) reported earnings that were better than expected. Meanwhile, Staples Inc (SPLS -15.37%) slumped after lowering its earnings forecast. Aflac Inc (AFL -6.3%) also lowered their profit forecasts. Allstate Corp (ALL +0.09%) agreed to buy Esurance from White Mountains Insurance Group (WTM +15%) for almost $1 billion. 

PICTURED: The benchmark S&P 500 Index made a stand at its 50-day moving average (DMA) line.

Consolidating Above 50-Day Average and Upward Trendline

Tibco Software Inc (TIBX +$0.28 or +0.77% to $28.95) volume totals have been cooling while recently consolidating above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and upward trendline. It is extended from a sound base pattern. Technically, its short-term average and recent low ($27.17) mark important chart support levels to watch where violations may trigger sell signals. Following its last appearance in the FSU section on 4/14/11 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Volume-Driven Gains Lift Software Firm From New Base", it made steady progress and stayed above its 50 DMA line on pullbacks. It found support well above prior highs in the $25-26 area during the recent consolidation, and never seriously threatened to negate its latest breakout.

This high-ranked Computer Software - Database firm based in Palo Alto, CA has maintained a steady annual earnings (A criteria) history and earnings increases have been impressive in the 5 most recent quarterly comparisons, above the +25% guideline (C criteria). The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 591 in Mar '10 to to 710 in Mar '11, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.  It has traded as much as session +28.2% from $23.98 when it was included in the February 2011 issue of CANSLIM.net News (read here).
