Encouraging Signs Include Positive Breadth as New Highs List Expands

It was somewhat encouraging that the volume totals were higher than the prior session totals as the major averages rose on Tuesday, however the volume totals reported on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange both remained below average. Advancers led decliners by about a 5-1 ratio on the NYSE and by almost 4-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the Nasdaq exchange for the first time since May 31st, and new highs also outnumbered new lows on the NYSE. There were 40 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, more than doubling the total of 16 on the prior session. All 14 of the high-ranked leaders currently included on the Featured Stocks Page posted gains.

 

May existing home sales declined 3.8% to an annual rate of 4.81 million units, the lowest level in six months. As the Federal Reserve began a two-day meeting in Washington, most analysts expected the Fed to maintain its balance sheet at current levels until October or later. Meanwhile, the euro gained as the Greek government prepared for a confidence vote that may determine its financial future.

Best Buy Co Inc (BBY +2.66%) rose after hiking its dividend and authorizing a new $5 billion share repurchase program. Carnival Corp (CCL +4.23%) rallied after posting better-than-expected earnings, meanwhile investors brushed aside the cruise operator's lowered forecast. Tower Bancorp Inc (TOBC +31.57%) jumped on news Susquehanna Bancshares, Inc (SUSQ -7.67%) will buy the bank for $343 million. Peabody Energy Corp (BTU +5.07%) and other coal company stocks gained as China boosted imports. Walgreen Co (WAG -4.21%) slumped after announcing it won't be part of Express Scripts Inc's (ESRX +0.37%) pharmacy network as of next year after unsuccessful contract negotiations.

The S&P 500 Index posted a +1.34% gain, which might be considered a questionable gain borderline with the minimum gain expected for a follow-through day. The S&P 400 Mid-Cap Index and S&P 600 Small-Cap Index both posted +1.9% gains on Day 3 and Day 4 of their rally attempts, respectively. The strength in small stocks and expansion in the new 52-week highs list were encouraging signs for growth-oriented investors who might cautiously look to accumulate ideal buy candidates. A follow-through day (FTD) occurring between Day 4 and Day 7 of a new rally is considered the most ideal confirmation of a new rally attempt.  As previously explained, to produce a solid FTD there should be a gain of at least +1.4% or more from at least one of the major averages, and the gain must come with higher volume and an expansion in leadership (new 52-week highs). Meanwhile, any deterioration under the Day 1 lows would officially end the nascent rally attempt and signal that the market's correction is continuing.

PICTURED: The Nasdaq Composite Index's +2.19% gain came on only Day 2 of its new rally attempt.

Retail, Tech, Healthcare, and Commodity-Linked Groups Rise

Financial shares were clearly laggards amid Tuesday's broad-based rally as the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +0.91%) and Bank Index ($BKX +1.08%) failed to keep pace with stronger gains in technology, energy, and defensive groups. The Retail Index ($RLX +2.31%) had a positive influence on the major averages. Unanimous gains from the Biotechnology Index ($BTK +1.50%), Semiconductor Index ($SOX +2.54%), Internet Index ($IIX +3.03%), and Networking Index ($NWX +3.04%) helped the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index outpace the Dow and S&P 500. Commodity-linked groups were solid gainers as the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU +3.32%) outpaced the Oil Services Index ($OSX +1.83%) and Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +2.23%).  The Healthcare Index ($HMO +1.85%) maintained its strength.

Volume-Driven Gain Clears Resistance For New Highs

Lululemon Athletica (LULU +$5.06 or +5.18% to $102.81) hit new 52-week and all-time highs today with +68% above average volume behind a 3rd consecutive gain. Technical improvement since dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 6/06/11 has been encouraging. It today's mid-day report its color code was changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on a "double bottom" base formed over the past 9 weeks. Its last appearance in this FSU section was on 5/27/11 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Damaging Losses Triggered Sell Signal", showing it slumping below its 50-day moving average (DMA) line triggering technical sell signals with 2 consecutive damaging losses on above average volume.

This high-ranked Retail-Apparel firm has confirmed a new technical buy signal with its solid gain above the new pivot point cited. No overhead supply remains to hinder its progress now, and it could go on to produce more climactic gains. As always, limit losses by selling if ever a stock fall more than -7% from your purchase price.

The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 261 in Sep '10 to 306 in Dec '10, but reportedly eased to 304 in Mar '11.  Its board of directors recently approved a 2-for-1 stock split (pending). The 7 latest quarterly comparisons showed strong sales revenues and impressive earnings increases (C criteria), and it maintained a good annual earnings history (A criteria) despite a patch of negative comparisons in early '09. LULU was first featured in yellow at $47.66 in the October 8, 2010 mid-day report report (read here) and it traded up as much as +115.7% in less than 7 months. 


Color Codes Explained :
Y - Better candidates highlighted by our staff of experts.
G - Previously featured in past reports as yellow but may no longer be buyable under the guidelines.

Meanwhile, recent lows near $75 define important support to watch.
