Major Averages Fell With Higher Volume Totals

The major averages finished lower on Thursday amid heavier profit taking pressure. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 110 points to 16,734. The S&P 500 lost 14 points to close at 1,930. The NASDAQ declined 34 points to 4,297 The volume was reported higher than the prior session totals on the Nasdaq exchange and on the NYSE. Decliners led advancers by almost a 3-2 margin on the NYSE and 2-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. Leadership contracted as there were only 32 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 42 stocks on the prior session. New 52-week highs contracted yet still easily outnumbered a small number of new 52-week lows on the NYSE and Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 4 of the 10 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page. The S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Industrial Average recently surged into new high territory with healthy leadership (new 52-week highs) sending 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's weekly graph shows the tech-heavy index perched -1.7% off its 2014 high.

The major averages extended their pullback to a second day following a round of disappointing economic data. Before the open, the Commerce Department reported retail sales grew 0.3% in May, less than a projected 0.6% increase. Weekly jobless claims rose to 317,000, above the consensus estimate of 310,000. Market weakness was also attributed to concerns surrounding an uprising of Sunni militants in Iraq.

Nine of 10 sectors in the S&P 500 were down on the session. Consumer discretionary was the worst performing group paced by a decline in airline stocks including Delta (DAL -5.43%) and Southwest (LUV -4.53%). Materials also weighed on the market with coal producer CONSOL Energy (CNX -4.64%) and U.S. Steel (X -3.84%) losing. Energy was the lone sector to finish in positive territory. Shares of Diamond Offshore (DO +4.03%) and Occidental Petroleum (OXY +1.36% ) climbed as the price of crude oil rallied on the tension in the Middle East.
Treasuries advanced with the benchmark 10-year note gaining 13/32 to yield 2.59%.

Rebounding Gold & Silver Index a Standout Gainer

The Retail Index ($RLX -1.66%) was a negative influence on the major averages on Thursday. There was also a loss for the Bank Index ($BKX -0.63%) while the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -0.05%) held its ground. The tech sector saw modest losses from the Networking Index ($NWX -0.58%) and the Semiconductor Index ($SOX -0.34%) while the Biotechnology Index ($BTK +0.24%) eked out a small gain. Energy-linked groups including the Oil Services Index ($OSX +0.45%) and the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +0.57%) posted modest gains, easily outpaced by another solid gain from the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU +2.31%).

Charts courtesy www.stockcharts.com

PICTURED: The Gold & Silver Index ($XAU +2.31%) was a standout gainer as it rebounded from the latest lows and rallied above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line toward its longer-term 200 DMA line.

Encountered Distributional Pressure After Touching New 52-Week High

Palo Alto Networks (PANW +$0.31 or +0.40% to $78.51) hit a new 52-week high today but encountered some distributional pressure and finished near the session low with a small gain on above average volume. It is extended from the previously noted base pattern and may be likely to encounter resistance near its old 52-week high. Prior highs near $72 define important support to watch on pullbacks above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line ($67.51). 

PANW was last shown in this FSU section with annotated graphs on 5/29/14 under the headline, "Finish Near Session Low Following Gap Up From Double Bottom Base". It was highlighted in yellow with pivot point cited based on its 4/22/14 high in the 5/29/14 mid-day report (read here). The gap up gain was backed by 5 times average volume as it completed a bullish "double bottom" base and triggered a technical buy signal.

Subsequent gains into new high territory (N criteria) could help it gain additional upward momentum. Keep in mind that disciplined investors avoid chasing stocks extended more than +5% above their prior high or pivot point, and they always limit losses by selling any stocks that fall more than -7% from their purchase price.

Strong sales revenues increases and earnings through the Apr '14 quarter above the +25% minimum guideline satisfy the C criteria. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history is a bit limited, but growth has been strong since its July 2012 IPO at $42. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 246 in Jun '13 to 353 in Mar '14, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its small supply (S criteria) of only 50.9 million shares in the public float is another favorable characteristic. The Computer Software - Security group currently has a B+ rating, reflecting decent leadership (L criteria) in the group.
