Major Averages Rebounded Following Prior Losses

The major averages rose on Friday's session while the volume totals were mixed, higher than the prior session volume total on the NYSE and lighter on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by a 4-1 margin on the Nasdaq exchange and on the NYSE. There were 26 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 the prior session total of 20 stocks. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE but new lows outnumbered new highs on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for all 13 of the high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page. The market (M criteria) uptrend has recently faced pressure and has been threatening to earn the label of being in a "correction" while leadership has become scarce.  Disciplined investors limit losses and reduce market exposure during rough market periods by selling any stocks which fall more than -7% from their purchase price.

 

PICTURED: The Dow rose 123 points to 17,100.

The S&P 500 finished 20 points higher at 1,978. The NASDAQ advanced 69 points to 4,432. The major averages rebounded from Thursday’s pullback attributed to generally positive earnings releases and easing geopolitical concerns. Google (GOOGL +4.2%) rose after posting revenues ahead of consensus estimates. Honeywell (HON +1.7%) rose following its positive quarterly results and increased guidance. Schlumberger (SLB -2%) rose as it offered a more cautious outlook. Stocks had retreated after a Malaysian Airlines jet was shot down over Ukraine and Israel sent troops into Gaza.

On the economic front, the preliminary July confidence reading from the University of Michigan showed consumer sentiment unexpectedly fell. In a separate release, the index of leading economic indicators increased +0.3% in June.
All 10 sectors in the S&P 500 were up on the session. Health care was the best performing group. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ +1.4%) was up and AbbVie (ABBV +2.6%) rose after announcing it reached a deal to acquire Shire (SHPG +1.43%) for $54.8 billion.
Treasuries declined with benchmark 10-year note losing 10/32 to yield 2.48%.

Tech Indices, Financial, Retail Indices Rose

Financial shares were a positive influence on the major averages as the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +1.91%) and the Bank Index ($BKX +1.09%) rose. The Retail Index ($RLX +1.20%) tallied a solid gain and the tech sector saw unanimous gains from the Semiconductor Index ($SOX +1.28%), Networking Index ($NWX +1.60%), and the Biotechnology Index ($BTK +2.64%). The Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -0.46%) edged lower and the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +0.58%) posted a modest gain while the Oil Services Index ($OSX +0.07%) finished flat.

Big Gains in First 2-3 Weeks After Breakout an Encouraging Sign

Taro Pharmaceutical Inds (TARO  $4.75 or +3.38% to $145.24) posted a gain on Friday after 3 consecutive losses. It is extended from its prior base and traded up as much as +26.9% since first featured in yellow in the 6/26/14 mid-day report at $117.31. The investment system rules say a stock should be held a minimum of 8 weeks after rising more than +20% in the first 2-3 weeks from being bought. Disciplined investors avoid chasing stocks more than +5% above prior highs. It was last shown in this FSU section on 6/26/14 with annotated graphs under the headline,"Fundamentally Strong Stock Challenging Prior Resistance Level", as it traded twice its average volume behind a considerable gain.

This high-ranked Medical - Generic Drug firm was highlighted in yellow in the 6/26/14 mid-day report (read here) while approaching a pivot point cited based upon its 5/02/14 high plus 10 cents. Patient and disciplined investors may watch for a proper base or secondary buy point to possibly develop and be noted in the weeks ahead. It reported earnings +86% on +13% sales revenues for the Mar '14 quarter, a 3rd consecutive quarterly comparison above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). The Israel-based Medical - Generic Drugs firm has seen the number of top-rated funds owning its shares rise from 2 in Mar '12 to 51 as of Jun '14, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.

TARO has a small supply (S criteria) of only 44.3 million shares outstanding, which is favorable, and any institutional buying or selling could lead to great price volatility. Disciplined investors always limit losses by selling any properly bought stock if it falls more than -7% from their purchase price.


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.
