Major Averages Retreated With Lighter Volume Totals

The major averages finished lower on Wednesday amid a round of profit taking.  The volume was reported lighter than the prior session totals on the Nasdaq exchange and on the NYSE. Decliners led advancers by more than a 3-2 margin on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq Exchange. There were 42 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 55 stocks on the prior session. New 52-week highs contracted yet still 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 have surged into new high territory. The healthy 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.

 Annotated Graphs for high-ranked Featured Stocks

PICTURED: The Dow Joners Industrial Average suffered a loss on lighter volume than 5 prior gains.

The Dow snapped a five-day winning streak as it declined 102 points from an all-time high to close at 16,843. The S&P 500 fell nearly 7 points to 1,943. The NASDAQ lost 6 points to 4,331.
News that the World Bank cut its global growth forecast to 2.8% from 3.2% prompted investors to take a breather from this year's rally. Economic data was limited to the monthly U.S. budget statement which showed the budget deficit shrank more than 6% from a year earlier to $130 billion in May.
Overall, nine of the 10 S&P 500 sectors declined. Utilities and financials paced the retreat as Exelon (EXC -3.6%) and Bank of America (BAC -2%) fell. Industrials also weighed on the market, led by Boeing's (BA -2.3%) drop. Energy was the sole group to finish higher with Anadarko Petroleum (APC +4.2%) and Exxon Mobil (XOM +0.6%) rising.
Treasuries advanced for the first time in four sessions and the government sold $21 billion in 10-year notes. The 10-year note gained 3/32 to yield 2.63%. The 30-year bond increased 10/32 to 3.46%.

Enduring Mild Distributional Pressure on Pullback

Air Lease Corp (AL -$0.90 or -2.15% to $40.99) pulled back with higher volume indicative of mild distributional pressure while retreating from a new 52-week high following volume-driven gains. Prior highs near $40 define near-term support to watch on pullbacks. Disciplined investors limit losses by always selling if any stock falls more than -7% from their purchase price.

Its earnings Per Share Rank is 97, well above the 80+ minimum for buy candidates. Its Relative Strength Rating of 91 is above the 80+ minimum guideline. AL was last shown in this FSU section on 5/28/14 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Finished Near Session Low and Below 'Max Buy' Level After Gain on Volume", as it gapped up and hit a new 52-week high with 3 times average volume behind its gain. The Commercial Services - Leasing firm was highlighted in yellow with pivot point based on its 3/21/14 high plus 10 cents in the 5/09/14 mid-day report (read here) when its gain backed by +119% above average volume clinched a convincing technical buy signal. 

It reported earnings +30% on +28% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter, and 3 of the past 4 quarterly comparisons showed earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). It completed a Secondary Offering on 11/21/13 and an earlier Secondary Offering on 5/31/13. The Commercial Services - Leasing firm has seen the number of top-rated funds owning its shares rise from 177 in Sep '12 to 240 in Mar '14, which is reassuring concerning the I criteria.
