Major Averages Hit New Record Highs Yet Again

The major averages finished with minor gains on Monday. The volume was reported higher than the prior session total on the Nasdaq exchange but lower on the NYSE. Advancers led decliners by a 3-2 margin on the Nasdaq exchange and 2-1 on the NYSE. Leadership expanded as there were 113 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 106 stocks on the prior session. New 52-week highs easily outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE and Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 5 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 Nasdaq Composite Index increased 14 points to 4,336, finishing -0.8% off its 2014 high.

The Dow rose 18 points to another record high of 16,943. The S&P 500 also closed at a new all-time high as it gained less than 2 points to 1,951

Monday's spotlight was on M&A Activity. Hillshire Brands (HSH +5.2%) gained after Tyson Foods (TSN -6.53%)agreed to buy the company for $7.8 billion. In tech, Analog Devices (ADI +4.97%) following news that it acquired chipmaker Hittite Microwave (HITT +28.63%) for about $2 billion. In other action, Family Dollar (FDO +13.37%) rallied after a report that activist investor Carl Icahn became the largest shareholder in the company.
Overall, sectors were mixed. Industrials and financials were the best performing groups as General Electric (GE +0.96%) and Bank of America (BAC +1.6%) rose. Marathon Oil (MRO +1.42%) and other energy stocks also gained ground as WTI crude increased to a three-month high. Losses in utilities and health care limited the indices advance as Dominion Resources (D -1.2%) and Gilead Sciences (GILD -4.11%) fell.
Treasury prices fell. The 10-year note declined 6/32 to yield 2.61%. The 30-year bond lost 8/32 to yield 3.45%.

Financial and Biotech Indexes Led Gainers

Finished Near Session Low After Hitting new 52-Week High

Sanchez Energy Corp (SN +$0.07 or +0.20% to $34.89) encountered distributional pressure and finished near the session low after touching a new 52-week high with today's 5th consecutive gain. Prior highs near $31-32 define support to watch on pullbacks.  The high-ranked Oil & Gas firm last appeared in this FSU section on 5/22/14 with annotated graphs under the headline, "Finish Near Low a Sign of Distributional Pressure Following Gap Up and New High", after highlighted in yellow with pivot point cited based on its 4/22/14 high in the earlier mid-day report (read here).

It reported earnings +46% on +334% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter. Quarterly comparisons show strong sales revenues and earnings increases well above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Annual earnings (A criteria) history showed losses in the years prior to its IPO in Dec '11, yet it has done well in the earnings department since and earned the highest possible Earnings Per Share Rating of 99. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 147 in Jun '13 to 227 in Mar '14, 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.
