Dow and S&P 500 Index Hit New Record Highs With Higher Volume

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 98 points to a new all-time of high of 16,836. The S&P 500 Index closed at a record high for the 17th time this year as it gained 12 points to 1,940. The Nasdaq Composite Index increased 44 points to 4,296. The volume was reported higher than the prior session totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, a sign of institutional buying demand on the rise. Advancers led decliners by more than a 3-1 margin on Nasdaq exchange and on the NYSE. Leadership expanded as there were 85 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 62 stocks on the prior session. New 52-week highs easily outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE and Nasdaq with more new 52-week highs on the Nasdaq exchange than any session since April 2nd. There were gains for 7 of the 10 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page. The S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Average continued their surges into new high territory. The expansion in leadership (new 52-week highs) is a reassuring signal that the market direction (M criteria) is in a "confirmed uptrend".  Any new buying efforts should be selective and focused in stocks meeting all key criteria of the fact-based investment system.

 

PICTURED: The Mid-Cap S&P 400 Index rallied to new all-time highs.
Accommodative monetary policy helped lift the market. The European Central Bank became the first major central bank to take interest rates below zero by cutting its deposit rate to -0.10%. The bank also lowered its main interest rate to a record low of +0.15% and announced further stimulus measures to promote growth. This helped overshadow a larger-than-anticipated rise in jobless claims as filings increased by 8,000 last week to 312,000. Now the focus turns to Friday's monthly employment update. Non-farm payrolls are expected to increase by 215,000 in May following the largest gain in more than two years.
All 10 S&P 500 sectors finished in positive territory. Industrials and financials paced the advance. Joy Global (JOY +6.7%) rose after posting a better-than-expected quarterly profit. Shares of JPMorgan (JPM +1.7%) also gained ground. Technology was also one of the best performing groups as Microsoft (MSFT +2.2%) rose.
Treasury prices rose for the first time in six sessions. The 10-year note gained 5/32 to yield 2.58%.

Financial, Retail, Tech, and Commodity-Linked Groups Rose

The Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +0.87%) and the Bank Index ($BKX +1.02%) both posted influential gains on Thursday along with the Retail Index ($RLX +1.17%) and most other groups.

Charts courtesy www.stockcharts.com

PICTURED: The Retail Index ($RLX +1.17%) rallied above its 200-day moving average (DMA) line, an encouraging improvement in its technical stance.

Gain With Above Average Volume an Encouraging Sign

Iconix Brand Group Inc (ICON +$0.75 or +1.75% to $43.54) hit new all-time highs with today's gain on average volume. The gain on the prior session was backed by +50% above average volume as it rallied for a new high close and triggered a new (or add-on) technical buy signal. It had stalled after rallying to new highs before, and the gain marked its first volume-backed gain above its previously cited pivot point.

The stock was last shown in this FSU section on 5/20/14 with annotated graphs under the headline, "Consolidating Above 50 DMA Line Still Perched Near 52-Week High". Its 50-day moving average (DMA) line defines near-term support. A violation of that short-term average would raise concerns and trigger a technical sell signal. It 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). 

A new pivot point has been cited based on its 5/01/14 high plus 10 cents as is has built a short "square box" base. Subsequent gains above the new pivot point with at least +40% above average volume would be a welcome reassurance it was attracting serious fresh institutional buying demand and triggering a new (or add-on) technical buy signal.

Keep in mind that 3 out of 4 stocks tend to move in the same direction of the major averages (M criteria) and the broader market is strong. Members are reminded that disciplined investors always limit losses by selling any stock that falls more than -7% from their purchase price.

Fundamentals remain strong for the high-ranked Apparel - Clothing Manufacturing firm.  Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been steady. It has earned a 95 Earnings Per Share Rating (EPS) which suggests that its recent earnings growth history has been stellar. Its Relative Strength rating is 84, above the 80+ minimum rank for buy candidates under the fact-based system. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares fell from 359 in Sep '13 to 346 in Mar '14, not a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.

Y - Relative Strength rating has improved to 83, above the 80+ minimum guideline for buy candidates. Finding support at its 50 DMA line, but deterioration below that important short-term average would raise more concerns and trigger a technical sell signal. A breakout above the pivot point with at least +40% above average volume is needed to trigger a new technical buy signal.
