Major Averages Posted Gains With Less Volume Conviction

The major averages held solid gains into Tuesday's closing bell. However, the volume totals were reported lighter than the prior session totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, giving an obvious hint that the institutional crowd was not accumulating stocks. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by a 4-1 margin on the NYSE and by more than 2-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 18 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, up from the prior session total of 13 stocks. The list of stocks hitting new 52-lows contracted yet still outnumbered new 52-week highs on the NYSE, meanwhile new highs outnumbered new lows on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 7 of the 8 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page, a list that has been waning in recent weeks.

 

Stocks managed to pare some of their recent declines on the heels of several positive economic reports. Looking at the data, May durable goods orders and June consumer confidence increased more than expected. Housing data was also positive as new home sales ticked higher in May and the Case-Shiller index showed a +1.7% increase in April home prices.

All 10 sectors on the S&P were higher led by a rally in financials including Bank of America Corp (BAC +3.01%). On the earnings front, Lennar Corp (LEN +0.69%) edged higher after posting a better-than-expected profit tally. On the downside, Walgreen Co (WAG -5.89%) shares slumped as the company fell short of analysts' estimates. In other news, Pandora Media Inc (P +8.46%) rallied after the company announced that its streaming radio service would be featured in 100 new vehicle models.

Turning to fixed income markets, Treasuries were lower along the curve. The benchmark 10-year note was down 17/32 to yield 2.61% and the 30-year bond was off over a full point to yield 3.63%.

The market (M criteria) weakness has been noted as a "correction" and this commentary has repeatedly reminded members - "Be protective of any gains, and limit losses!  Be especially watchful for any individual issues flashing technical sell signals.  It is vitally important to your success with the fact-based investment system to reduce exposure and preserve cash during market downdrafts."

There is a need for caution until a follow-through day of meaningful gains from at least one of the major averages on higher volume coupled with an expansion in leadership (stocks hitting new 52-week highs). Watch upcoming CANSLIM.net reports and especially the bold portion for us to observe any noteworthy shifts in the market direction (M criteria). 

Individual leaders best matching the winning models of the fact-based investment system are on the Featured Stocks Page - with our Certified experts' latest notes and links to additional resources including detailed analysis with annotated graphs.  The Premium Member Homepage - includes "dynamic archives" to all prior pay reports published.

PICTURED: The S&P 500 Index posted a gain on lighter volume after a damaging violation of its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and prior lows with heavier volume behind its losses.

Financial, Retail, Tech, and Energy-Related Groups Rose

Financial stocks underpinned the major averages as they bounced on Tuesday while the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +1.46%) and the Bank Index ($BKX +2.18%)  posted gains. The Retail Index ($RLX +0.80%) was a positive influence, and there were gains for the Biotechnology Index ($BTK +1.09%) and the Internet Index ($IIX +0.93%), followed by a smaller gain for the Networking Index ($NWX +0.26%). Energy-related shares also had a positive slant as the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +1.21%) and the Oil Services Index ($OSX +1.32%) posted gains.  Meanwhile, defensive groups were clearly laggards as the Healthcare Index ($HMO -0.35%) and the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -0.13%) edged lower.

PICTURED: The Semiconductor Index ($SOX +2.43%) led the tech sector higher, promptly rebounding following a violation of its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and prior lows.

Extended From Base After Rallying With No Overhead Supply

Portfolio Recovery Assoc (PRAA -$0.54 or -0.35% to $154.60) is consolidating near its all-time high, extended from any sound base. It rallied into new high territory in recent weeks with no resistance due to overhead supply. Its 50-day moving average (DMA) line defines important near-term chart support to watch on pullbacks. Patient investors may continue watching for a new base or secondary buy point to possibly develop and be noted in the weeks ahead. Since highlighted in the 5/01/13 mid-day report (read here) after its "breakaway gap" it has shown bullish action and traded up as much as +25.3%.

Its last appearance in this FSU section was on 6/10/13 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Perched Near High After Mild Distributional Pressure".  The high-ranked leader from the Finance - Credit Card/Payment Processing industry group has strong fundamentals. It reported earnings +54% on +21% sales revenues for the Mar '13 quarter, continuing its record of strong earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria).  The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 308 in Jun '12 to 384 in Mar '13, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its Up/Down Volume Ratio is currently at 2.1, an unbiased indication that its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days.
