Major Averages Start Week With a Mixed Session

The major averages finished mixed and little changed on Monday. The volume totals reported were also mixed, slightly lower on the NYSE and slightly higher on the Nasdaq exchange versus the prior session totals. Advancing issues narrowly trailed decliners on both the NYSE and the Nasdaq exchange. The total number of new 52-week highs led new 52-week lows on the NYSE on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 27 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 24 stocks. There were gains for 12 of the 21 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page.

 

The major averages swung between gains and losses as investors await word from the Fed on monetary policy later this week. The 10-year note gained 11/32 to yield 1.65%.

Technology was the best performing sector on the session. Shares of Apple Inc (AAPL +1.88%) gained more ground after winning its patent case against rival Samsung. Utilities outperformed with Dominion Resources Inc (D +1.05%) rising, meanwhile energy-related shares including Energy -Coal firm Peabody Energy Corp (BTU -2.44%) fell. On the earnings front, retailer Tiffany & Co (TIF +7.20%) climbed after quarterly results showed same store sales fell less than analysts projected. In the financials, Hudson City Bancorp Inc (HCBK +15.68%) rallied after agreeing to be acquired by M&T Bank Corp (MTB +4.60%) for approximately $3.7 billion.

Telecom and materials were the worst performing sectors on Monday. Dow component Verizon Communications Inc (VZ -0.95%) declined following cautious comments in Barron's over the weekend.

In terms of the M criteria, the major indices recently have been in a confirmed rally coupled with an expansion in leadership (stocks hitting new 52-week highs).

Institutional Interest Increasing in Software Firm

Often, when a leading stock is setting up to breakout of a solid base it is highlighted in CANSLIM.net's Mid-Day Breakouts Report. The most relevant factors are noted in the report which alerts prudent CANSLIM oriented investors to place the issue in their watch list. After doing any necessary backup research, the investor is prepared to act after the stock triggers a technical buy signal (breaks above its pivot point on more than +50% average turnover) but before it gets too extended from a sound base. In the event the stock fails to trigger a technical buy signal and its price declines then it will simply be removed from the watch list. Disciplined investors know to buy as near as possible to the pivot point and avoid chasing stocks after they have rallied more than +5% above their pivot point. It is crucial to always limit losses whenever any stock heads the wrong direction, and disciplined investors sell if a struggling stock ever falls more than -7% from their purchase price.

Ultimate Software Group (ULTI +$2.92 or +3.04% to $98.94) gapped up and touched a new 52-week high today while tallying a gain backed by +54% above average volume, however it did not clinch a technical buy signal as it finished the session below its pivot point. It was highlighted in yellow with pivot point cited based on its 8/01/12 high plus 10 cents in the earlier mid-day report (read here). It found support above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line during its brief "square box" base. A volume-driven gain and strong close above its pivot point may trigger technical buy signal.

Quarterly earnings increases have been above the +25% guideline (C criteria) and its annual earnings (A criteria) have been steadily improving since a downturn in FY '08. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 258 in Sep '11 to 318 in Jun '12, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.6 also offers an unbiased indication that its shares have been under 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.

Y - Finished the session with a solid gain above its pivot point backed by +143% above average volume, triggering a technical buy signal while rallying from a very tight trading range where volume totals had cooled for several weeks. It was highlighted in yellow in the earlier mid-day report with a pivot point based on its 7/26/12 high plus 10 cents. The considerable gain with above average volume followed news that its generic Lidoderm(R) received FDA approval, an encouraging development concerning the N criteria. The 5/09/12 mid-day report noted - "Its improved fundamentals make it a worthy candidate for investors' watchlists. Sales revenues showed impressive acceleration while the 3 latest quarterly comparisons through Mar '12 showed earnings increases above the +25% guideline satisfying the C criteria. It also has maintained a strong annual earnings (A criteria) history."
