Major Averages Tallied Both Monthly and Quarterly Gains

For the month, the Dow was up +0.7%, the S&P 500 rose +1.9% while the NASDAQ gained +3.9%. Stocks finished little changed on Monday. The volume was reported higher than the prior session total on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, a reassuring sign that the institutional crowd did some buying. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by a 2-1 margin on the NYSE and by a 7-4 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 58 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 Friday's total of 50 stocks. New 52-week highs expanded and solidly outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 12 of the 15 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 Dow Jones Industrial Average is consolidating above its upward trendline and 50-day moving average (DMA) line.

With June's advance, the major averages posted positive second-quarter performance. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up +2.2%, the S&P 500 Index increased +4.7% and Nasdaq Composite Index climbed +5%.
The major averages were mixed on the final trading day of June as investors weighed updates on the economy. Shortly after the open, a report showed the pace of Midwest business activity slowed this month. Home builders rose after a release revealed pending home sales climbed +6.1% in May. Shares of D.R. Horton (DHI +3.15%). Monday's choppy market action was also attributed to quarter-end portfolio rebalancing and investor caution ahead of the employment report released on Thursday.
Dominion Resources (D +1%) rose as utilities and materials were the best performing sectors in the S&P 500. International Paper (IP +2.9%) rose following a positive article in Barron's over the weekend. Health care and telecom were down the most on the session as Eli Lilly (LLY -1.47%) and Verizon (VZ -0.8%) fell. 
Treasuries ended June on a positive note with the 10-year note up 2/32 to yield 2.53%.

Gap Up Gain on Above Average Volume for New Highs

Palo Alto Networks (PANW +$2.64 or +3.25% to $83.85) gapped up and hit new 52-week and all-time highs while trading +73% above average volume behind with today's 4th consecutive gain. The high-ranked leader was last shown in this FSU section with annotated graphs on 6/12/14 under the headline, "Encountered Distributional Pressure After Touching New 52-Week High". Since then it stubbornly held its ground but it had made limited headway from the prior "double bottom" base, while it was previously noted - "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."

Prior highs near $80 define initial support to watch on pullbacks now that it has distanced itself from that  previous resistance level. PANW was first 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.

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 359 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.
