Major Averages in Ongoing "Correction" Lost Ground in August

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended August down -4.5%. The S&P 500 lost -3.1% for the month while the Nasdaq Composite index fell -1.0%. The major averages lost ground on Friday while the volume totals were reported mixed, higher than the prior session total on the NYSE and lower on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was negative as decliners led advancers by a 5-2 margin on the NYSE and by a 3-1 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 15 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 a total of 14 stocks on the prior session. The list of stocks hitting new 52-week lows outnumbered new 52-week highs on the NYSE while new highs outnumbered new lows on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for only 3 of the 16 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page. The market (M criteria) is technically still in a "correction", and historic studies suggest that no new buying efforts should be made during market corrections. An ideal turning point to watch for would be a solid follow-through day of gains greater than +1.5% from at least one of the 3 major averages with higher volume totals and an expansion in leadership (new 52-week highs).

   

The major averages declined Friday while heading into the Labor Day weekend after Secretary of State John Kerry made the case for limited U.S. military action against Syria. Investors digested the latest economic data. Before the open, reports showed personal income and spending both rose +0.1% in July, less than the consensus projections for an +0.3% increase. Separate releases revealed consumer confidence declined from a six year high while Midwest manufacturing activity expanded in August. Treasuries were mostly lower with the 10-year note down 4/32 to yield 2.78%.

Eight of 10 sectors were down on the session. Technology was the worst performing group. Apple Inc (AAPL -0.91%) as the company began its iPhone trade-in program. Financials and industrials also underperformed as The ADT Corp (ADT -2.16%) and The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc (HIG -1.1%) lost ground. Saleforce.com Inc (CRM +12.55%) was the best performing stock in the S&P 500, rallying on its increased full year forecast.  

The Dow ended August down -4.5%. The S&P 500 lost -3.1% for the month while the Nasdaq Composite index fell -1.0%. The Dow and S&P remain below their respective 50-day moving average lines, and rebounds above those short term averages would be another encouraging sign to watch for before one can truly consider those indices in "healthy" shape chart-wise.

PICTURED: The Nasdaq Composite Index fell on Day 3 of a nascent rally attempt. Losses threatened to undercut the indices' Day 1 lows which would technically end the brief rally attempt and signal that the correction was worsening. It is the only one of the 3 major averages which is still above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line. It is important to watch for a proper follow-through day (FTD) to signal convincingly that a solid rally is at hand before new buying efforts in stocks may be justified under the fact-based system. Patience and discipline remain paramount.

Widespread Losses Dragged All Groups Lower Again

Losses for the Retail Index ($RLX -0.65%) and financial groups weighed on the major averages on Friday's session while the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -1.31%) outpaced the Bank Index ($BKX -0.61%) to the downside. The tech sector saw unanimous losses from the Biotechnology Index ($BTK -1.38%), Internet Index ($IIX -1.12%), Networking Index ($NWX -1.02%), and the Semiconductor Index ($SOX -0.89%). Defensive groups were weak as the Healthcare Index ($HMO -1.11%) and the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -1.33%) fell.  Energy relates shares also sputtered as the Oil Services Index ($OSX -0.81%) and Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -0.49%) sank, rounding out a widely negative session.

Volume-Driven Gain For a New High Close

Soufun Hldgs Ltd Ads (SFUN +$2.87 or +7.38% to $41.77) rallied to a best-ever close with another big volume-driven gain. It has shown strength and resilience amid widespread market (M criteria) weakness. It is extended from a sound base and prior reports cautioned - "Disciplined investors avoid chasing stocks too extended from sound bases."  It was last shown in this FSU section on 8/08/13 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Finished at New High After Another Volume-Driven Gain",  as it gapped up. It has traded up as much as +42.7% since it first appeared highlighted in yellow in the 7/16/13 the mid-day report (read here) while it spiked to new 52-week and all-time highs and quickly rallied above its "max buy" level.

Fundamentals remain strong as it reported +56% earnings on +49% sales revenues for the Jun '13 quarter versus the year ago period, solidly satisfying the C criteria. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 76 in Sep '12 to 96 in Jun '13, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its small supply (S criteria) of only 33.3 million shares in the public float can contribute to greater price volatility in the event of institutional buying or selling.
