Financial Sector Infecting Broader Market Again

The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded down as many as 253 points in the early going on Monday after the market opened with a negative bias, then throughout the session the blue chips and other indices recovered but still finished with losses. The reported volume totals were lighter on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange following Friday's totals that were inflated by options expirations. Declining issues beat advancers by 7-2 on the NYSE and by nearly 4-1 on the Nasdaq.exchange. New 52-week lows outnumbered new 52-week highs on both the Nasdaq exchange and the NYSE. There were 20 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, down from the prior session total of 28 stocks. However, there were gains from 9 of the 12 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page.

 

The mood improved in the final hour when Greek officials said they were closer to an agreement on a deal to win a new aid payment and avoid default. Talks will resume tomorrow.

Financial and energy sectors felt the most pressure. Oil prices fell to a three-week low in New York on worries demand may falter and after OPEC indicated that global consumption of oil is rising less than expected. Technology shares were led by Apple Inc (AAPL +2.9%) as it hit a new all-time high. 

Standout stocks included Tyco International Ltd  (TYC +2.40%) after the firm announced a plan to split into three companies. Goodrich (GR +15.84%) gapped up and touched a 30-year high as talks continued on a possible United Technologies (UTX +0.07%) acquisition. There was a ray of hope for the homebuilding industry. Lennar Corp (LEN +4.86%) said consumers are returning to the market as the company posted its sixth straight quarterly profit. 

The market environment (M criteria) remains in an uptrend despite recent pressure, and disciplined investors may carefully consider new buying efforts when all key criteria are satisfied. While it is encouraging that the major averages have been keeping the rally alive by staying well above their Day 1 (8/09/11) lows, a further expansion in leadership (new 52-week highs) remains crucial to any sustained advance. 

The September 2011 issue of CANSLIM.net News will be available soon.  The Q3 2011 Webcast has also been scheduled for Wednesday, September 28th at 8PM EST.  Links to all prior reports and webcasts are available on the Premium Member Homepage.

PICTURED: The weekly graph of the Dow Jones Industrial Average above gives a longer-term perspective of where it stands versus the daily graph shown in last Wednesday's commentary (read here). It rallied within -9.3% of its October 2007 all-time high at its May 2nd peak this year. After the latest correction, From the Day 1 low (8/09/11) it rallied up +10.5% within the first 4 weeks of the current rally.  Its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and recent highs define near-term resistance. Subsequent gains above those levels would be a notable technical improvement in the market's health.

Retail Index Holding Recent Gains Above 50 & 200 DMA Lines

Financial stock were the session's sore spot as the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -3.05%) and Bank Index ($BKX -2.84%) took the most substantial damage. Energy-related shares sank as the Oil Services Index ($OSX -1.68%) and Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -1.33%) suffered losses.  Tech shares also had a negative charge as the Networking Index ($NWX -1.38%), Semiconductor Index ($SOX -1.16%), Internet Index ($IIX -1.05%), and Biotechnology Index ($BTK -0.85%) fell.  The Healthcare Index ($HMO -0.82%) and Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -0.97%) offered no reward for defensively positioned investors.

PICTURED: The Retail Index ($RLX -0.17%) was a standout by simply finishing Monday's session closer to unchanged that any of the other group indexes routinely included in this commentary. Last week it rallied above its converging 50-day moving average (DMA) and 200 DMA lines.

Volume Requirement Not Met As Apple Hit New High

Apple Inc (AAPL +$11.13 or +2.78% to $411.63) hit new 52-week and all-time highs with +35% above average volume behind today's 6th consecutive gain after finding support near its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and prior chart highs during its 8-week consolidation. The 9/16/11 mid-day report (read here) included it highlighted in yellow with pivot point based on its 52-week high plus 10 cents. In today's mid-day report it was again cautiously noted - "A gain with at least +40% above average volume while rising above its pivot point may trigger a technical buy signal."  Disciplined investors use a tactic called "pyramiding" to avoid chasing stocks more than +5% above prior highs. Today's gain today tested investors' discipline, and they should appreciate the volume shortfall's significance. It clearly hints that, at the late stage of the tech leader's ongoing advance, there may not be very many institutional investors willing to "finally" turn bullish on it enough to decide to become buyers over other great growth candidates which might be more fleet footed.

AAPL recently rallied after reporting very strong earnings +122% on +82% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 versus the year ago period. Stellar earnings track record that solidly satisfies the C and A criteria. However, it is already heavily owned by the institutional crowd, and ownership by top-rated funds fell from 4,366 in Mar '11 to 4,343 in Jun '11.

It had been dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 8/20/10 after its last appearance in this FSU section (8/09/10) under the headline, "Quiet Consolidation Above 50 DMA Line". An annotated graph and detailed analysis in the 6/17/10 report under the headline "Saucy Details On Apple Worth Reviewing" summarized important details and some of the prior coverage published concerning of this long-time favorite.  Members who have not followed the ongoing analysis provided should take time to review what has been written.  With the largest market cap of all publicly traded firms, AAPL does not fit the mold of a small growth firm unknown by the institutional crowd which would be more typical of the winning models of the fact-based investment system.

 


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 - Overcame early weakness after a small gap down today, rallying for a positive reversal. Its gap up last week helped it break out from a cup-with-high-handle base pattern and trigger a technical buy signal. Its strong quarterly and annual earnings history satisfies the C and A criteria. See the latest FSU analysis for more details and a new annotated graph.

Y - Color code is changed to yellow with pivot point cited based on its 52-week high plus 10 cents. It is perched within close striking distance of previously stubborn resistance in the $62 area. Quarterly and annual earnings history has remained strong while it survived but failed to impress since it was dropped from the Featured Stocks list on 10/06/08. See the Featured Stock Update section of the 9/23/08 CANSLIM.net After Market Update for analysis and an annotated graph (read here). Disciplined investors may note that CELG did not confirm a proper technical buy signal after it was featured in the August 2008 CANSLIM.net News, whereas the detailed report's "Technical Analysis" area included the note - "Confirming gains to all-time highs with great volume conviction would be a nice reassurance that it is capable of a meaningful advance" (read here).

G - Holding its ground today. Last week it reported earnings +53% on +32% sales revenues for the quarter ended July 31, 2011 versus the year ago period, and a considerable "breakaway gap" with heavy volume cleared its pivot point and triggered a technical buy signal. Color code is changed to green. Breakaway gaps are one exception where chasing a stock more than 5% above prior highs may be permitted, but risk increases when doing so that an ordinary pullback may prompt investors to sell per the system's selling rules.

News of the offering was followed by a damaging gap down on 9/13/11, and it violated its 50 DMA line, raising concerns and triggering a technical sell signal. It is -14.3% off its 52-week high hit last week, and only a prompt rebound above its short-term average would help its outlook.
