Indices Posted Gains With Lighter Volume After Distributional Pressure

The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished with a weekly loss of -0.7%, the S&P 500 Index declined -0.9% and the Nasdaq Composite Index fell -1.6%. The major averages overcame early weakness on Friday and finished higher, but small-caps lagged. Volume on the session was lighter than the prior session volume totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was narrowly positive as advancers led decliners by an 8-7 margin on the NYSE while the mix was even on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 16 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, up a notch from the prior session total of 15 stocks. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE while new highs and new lows were evenly matched on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 12 of the 15 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page. The market (M criteria) uptrend clearly came under pressure this week while leadership quickly evaporated.  Any new buying efforts should be selective and focused in stocks meeting all key criteria of the fact-based investment system.

 

PICTURED: The S&P 500 Index is consolidating -0.9% off its all-time high, up +6.4% year-to-date. 

Stocks spent the day toggling between gains and losses before second-quarter earnings season ramps up next week. There are 130 companies in the S&P 500 due to release results over the next two weeks. Wall Street estimates project earnings growth of 6.1% and revenues to rise 3% for the benchmark index, according to Thomson Reuters.
Eight of the 10 S&P 500 sectors closed in positive territory. Industrials and telecom were the best performing groups as General Electric (GE +1.3%) and Verizon (VZ +1.3%) rose. Technology stocks also advanced, led by Facebook (FB +2.2%). Losses in energy and utilities limited the indices' gains. Chevron (CVX -1.3%) fell after the company said its second-quarter production will decline from a year earlier, amid lower output overseas. Exelon (EXC -1.7%) also fell.
Treasuries continued their recent winning streak. The 10-year note rose 5/32 to yield 2.52%. The 30-year bond gained 18/32 to yield 3.34%.

Retail, Financial, Biotech, and Gold & Silver Index Rose

The Retail Index ($RLX +0.88%) was a positive influence on the major averages while the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +0.61%) and the Bank Index ($BKX +0.20%) posted smaller gains. The Biotechnology Index ($BTK +1.00%) led the tech sector higher while the Semiconductor Index ($SOX +0.06%) and the Networking Index ($NWX +0.09%) finished flat. The Gold & Silver Index ($XAU +2.31%) was a standout gainer. Energy-related groups edged lower as the Oil Services Index ($OSX -0.64%) and the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -0.37%) suffered modest losses.

PICTURED 1: The Bank Index ($BKX +0.20%) is consolidating above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line.

Slump Below 50-Day Moving Average Line Hurt Outlook

Iconix Brand Group Inc (ICON -$0.23 or -0.55% to $41.68) slumped further below its 50-day moving average (DMA) line ($42.53) this week with losses on lighter than average volume. Its failure to find support at that important short-term average raised concerns, and a prompt rebound above the 50 DMA line is needed for its outlook to improve. More damaging losses would raise greater concerns.

The stock was last shown in this FSU section on 6/18/14 with annotated graphs under the headline, "Found Support Above Prior Highs During Consolidation". It made little headway following its recent technical breakout and stalled after rallying above prior highs in the $42 area. Disciplined investors limit losses while they are small by always selling if any stock falls more than -7% from their purchase price.

It reported earnings +33% on +11% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter, continuing its streak of earning increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Fundamentals remain strong for the high-ranked Apparel - Clothing Manufacturing firm. Its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been steady. It has earned a 95 Earnings Per Share Rating (EPS) which suggests that its recent earnings growth history has been stellar. Its Relative Strength rating is 83, above the 80+ minimum rank for buy candidates under the fact-based system. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares fell from 357 in Sep '13 to 352 in Jun '14, not a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.  However, its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of b is a unbiased indication its shares have seen some slight accumulation over the past 50 days.


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.

G - Touched a new 52-week high today after rebounding above its "max buy" level and its color code is changed to green. Managed a "positive reversal" on the prior session after trading down considerably, likely prompting disciplined investors to sell if it fell more than -7% from their purchase price. Any stock which is sold can be bought back later if strength returns, however rule number one is to always limit losses while they are small.
