Stocks Continued Rally Effort But Finished Off Session Highs

The Dow Industrials, S&P 500 Index, and the Nasdaq Composite Index picked up where they left off Monday afternoon, charging higher on Tuesday morning, however a late-afternoon slump ate into the session's gains. Higher volume totals were reported on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was positive as advancing issues beat decliners by more than 4-1 on the NYSE and by 3-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. The new 52-week lows totals still outnumbered new 52-week highs on both the Nasdaq exchange and the NYSE. There were 12 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 2 on the prior session. There were gains from 9 of the 15 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page.

 

U.S economic reports were lackluster. Confidence among U.S. consumers rose less than forecast in September, as a measure of the difficulty of finding jobs rose to the highest in almost three decades. The S&P/Case-Shiller index of property values in 20 cities fell -4.1% from July 2010. That was a smaller decline than forecast. It may be a sign that bank delays in processing foreclosures have temporarily slowed the slump in real-estate values. The Treasury's $35 billion auction of two-year notes produced the highest demand in a year as demand for safety remained. The 10-year Treasury note was down 24/32 to yield 1.98%.

Stocks extended Monday's rally on increasing hopes that Europe will take action to prevent the debt crisis from worsening. Attention was on a meeting between the prime minister of Greece and the chancellor of Germany. The meeting comes before a key vote in the German parliament later this week on a new bailout plan for Greece. The market also may have been somewhat relieved by a vote in the U.S. Senate to avoid a government shutdown. The Senate reached a bipartisan deal on stopgap spending to defuse a fight over aid to victims of natural disasters. However, Tuesday's sizable rally lost ground in the final hour as the stock market remained vulnerable to headlines out of Europe. Investors anticipated a more ambitious plan to contain the European debt crisis. Much of the early gain evaporated following a report that some euro companies are asking private creditors to take bigger write-downs on Greek debt.

Mining and energy stocks helped lead Tuesday's gains while gold prices were up for the first time in five days and silver futures advanced +5.2%. Oil stocks rose as the price of crude settled in New York up more than $4 per barrel, the biggest one-day gain in more than four months.

Walgreen Co (WAG -6.27%) posted profits that beat estimates, but shares fell as the drug chain failed to report progress on a new contract with Express Scripts Inc (ESRX +0.92%). 

The market environment (M criteria) is clearly under pressure and back in a correction after the heavy wave of distributional action last week. The latest confirmed rally may, at best, be considered barely alive by the fact that the Nasdaq Composite Index and S&P 500 Index are still fighting to stay above their respective Day 1 (8/09/11) lows.

The September 2011 issue of CANSLIM.net News is now available - (click here).  The Q3 2011 Webcast airs on Wednesday, September 28th at 8PM EST.  Links to all prior reports and webcasts are available on the Premium Member Homepage.

PICTURED: The non-financial Nasdaq 100 Index rallied above its downward sloping 50-day moving average (DMA) line to challenge its 200 DMA line again today. The major indices are technically in worse shape, while the lack of a negative influence from financial shares obviously helps this index look better.

Healthcare, Technology, and Energy-Related Shares Rose

While the Retail Index ($RLX -0.50%) had a slightly negative bias and the Bank Index ($BKX -0.05%) ended marginally lower, the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +0.77%) was a positive influence, and gains in other groups helped the major averages finish the day higher.  The Healthcare Index ($HMO +1.95%) was among Tuesday's best gaining groups and the tech sector was led higher by the Networking Index ($NWX +2.60%), followed by gains from the Semiconductor Index ($SOX +1.81%), Biotechnology Index ($BTK +1.24%), and the Internet Index ($IIX +1.50%). The Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +1.71%) posted a solid gain, meanwhile the Oil Services Index ($OSX +0.33%) edged higher and the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU +0.15%) posted a small gain.

PICTURED: The Healthcare Index ($HMO +1.95%) faces resistance at its prior hghs and its 50-day and 200-day moving average (DMA) lines which recently converged and completed a "death cross".

Holding its Ground Following News of Small Secondary Offering

Marketaxess Holdings Inc (MKTX -$0.21 or -0.76% to $27.55) erased its early gain today, and after a negative reversal it ended near the session low with a small loss on below average volume. It inched back above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line with lighter volume after recently finding support near that important short-term average and its prior highs in the $26 area. It endured some distributional pressure after its last appearance in this FSU section on 9/02/11 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Volume Totals Cooling While Hovering Near Highs".  Since then, its Accumulation/Distribution rating has slumped from a B- to a D, and it has been struggling to hold its ground since a gap down on 9/16/11 following news of a small Secondary Offering of 950,000 shares priced at $28.65.  

It proved resilient near its short-term average in the past after undercutting it, and it stayed well above its longer-term 200 DMA line. MKTX has earned high ranks and reasonably satisfies the guidelines concerning quarterly and annual earnings (C and A criteria), however a downturn in FY '08 (see red oval) was previously noted as a flaw. Additionally, the Finance - Investment Bankers industry group currently has a Relative Strength rating of D- which indicates the group has been a poor performer rather than a strong leader (L criteria). The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 195 in Dec '10 to 227 in Jun '11, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.
