Major Averages Rose With Help From Tech Sector

On Wednesday the major averages overcame a choppy start and posted unanimous gains. Volume totals were reported mixed, higher than the prior session total on the NYSE and lower on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by an 8-7 margin on the NYSE and by more than 3-2 on the NASDAQ exchange. There were 25 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 24 stocks. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE but new lows again outnumbered new highs on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 8 of the 13 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page. The broader market (M criteria) has encountered distributional pressure while leadership (stocks hitting new 52-week highs) has waned. Remember that disciplined investors buy stocks with superior fundamentals only after they have triggered a proper technical buy signal.
 

PICTURED: The S&P 500 added 7 points to 1,995.

The NASDAQ climbed 34 points to 4,586. Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 55 points to 17,068. Shares of Visa (V +1.2%) rallied to pace the index's advance. As the major averages finished higher a gain in technology stocks offset a retreat by the energy sector. Apple (AAPL +3.1%) rose a day after introducing the iPhone 6 and a new smartwatch. Palo Alto Networks (PANW +10.6%) spiked higher after the computer security company's sales guidance topped projections. Twitter (TWTR +4.5%) rose following positive analyst comments. Shares of Valero (VLO +3.3%) rallied after a report showed crude inventories increased for the fifth time in six weeks. Chevron (CVX -0.7%) fell.

Market action was also attributed investors attempting to gauge the timing of Fed tightening. Next week's policy meeting prompted speculation the central bank may indicate when it will begin raising interest rates. On the data front, a report this morning showed wholesale inventories grew 0.1% in July, below an expected 0.5% increase.

Treasuries extended losses to a fifth day amid the debate over Fed policy. Benchmark 10-year notes declined 9/32 to yield 2.54%. In commodity trading, WTI crude oil fell -1.1% to $91.78/bbl. on the NYMEX. COMEX gold gained +0.1% to $1,249.10/bbl.

Retail, Financial, and Tech Groups Posted Gains

Strength from the Retail Index ($RLX +0.42%) and gains in financial shares underpinned the major averages' rally as the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +0.83%) and the Bank Index ($BKX +1.04%) rose on Wednesday. The Networking Index ($NWX +1.48%) rose and the Semiconductor Index ($SOX +0.01%) finished flat.  The Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -1.44%) was a laggard as it slumped, and the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -0.27%) also edged lower while the Oil Services Index ($OSX +0.45%) posted a modest gain.

Extended From Prior Highs and Previously Noted Base

Strattec Security Corp (STRT  +$0.36 or +0.42% to $86.04) is hovering at its 52-week high, pausing after recent gains. It is extended from its prior base. Prior highs in the $74-77 area  define initial support to watch on pullbacks. It held its ground stubbornly and made gradual progress since last shown in this FSU section on 8/22/14 with annotated graphs under the headline, "Small Supply of Shares and Perched Near All-Time Highs".

It was first highlighted in yellow at $71.47 with pivot point based on its 6/06/14 high plus 10 cents in the earlier mid-day report (read here). While currently perched at new highs (N criteria) no overhead supply remains to act as resistance. Disciplined investors avoid chasing extended stocks, so patient investors may watch for a secondary buy point or new base to possibly form and be noted in the weeks ahead.

Quarterly earnings increases through Jun '14 above the +25% minimum guideline satisfy the C criteria and its annual earnings (A criteria) history has been strong. Increasing ownership by top-rated funds (I criteria) is a reassuring sign. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 59 in Sep '14 to 133 in Jun '14, a very reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.4 is an unbiased indication its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days. The Auto/Truck - Original Equipment group's strong Group Relative Strength rank is a reassuring sign concerning the L criteria. The thinly-traded stock has a small supply (S criteria) of only 3.34 million shares in the public float which can contribute to greater price volatility in the event of institutional buying or selling.

Y - Posted a small gain today on light volume. Color code was changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 7/24/14 high plus 10 cents. Recent gains lacked great volume conviction while gains above a stock's pivot point must have at least +40% above averages volume to trigger a proper new (or add-on) technical buy signal. See the latest FSU analysis for more details and annotated graphs. Prior highs in the $72 area define initial support along with its 50 DMA line.
