Major Averages Ended Mixed After Early Weakness

The major averages finished mixed on Wednesday. The volume totals were reported higher than the prior session totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by an 8-7 margin on the NYSE while advancers led decliners by a 3-2 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 75 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 89 stocks. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 5 of the 12 high-ranked companies currently on the Featured Stocks Page. Disciplined investors know that new buying efforts may be made under the fact-based investment system only in stocks meeting all key criteria.

 

PICTURED: The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 2 points to 1,7612, breaking a 6 session winning streak.

The major averages erased earlier losses to finish mixed, snapping a streak of record highs for the Dow and S&P 500.The S&P 500 was 1 point lower to 2038. The NASDAQ bucked the trend and gained 14 points to 4,675.

 Investors weighed corporate profits and central bank activity. Macy's (M +5.1%) rose after the company's quarterly sales results exceeded estimates. Cisco (CSCO -0.2%) was slightly lower ahead of its earnings announcement after the close. In Europe ECB President Mario Draghi said stimulus measures may not be enough to boost economic growth. Meanwhile both the Bank of England and German officials separately lowered their growth forecasts.

At the close six of 10 sectors in the S&P 500 were in positive territory. Telecom stocks were a relative outperformer as Verizon (VZ +0.4%) edged higher. Utilities were down the most as Exelon (EXC -3.4%) fell. Financials were under pressure. JP Morgan Chase & Co (JPM -1.3%) and Citigroup (C -0.7%) fell after reports that European regulators fined both banks.

Treasuries finished lower, following an auction of $24 billion in 10-year notes. The benchmark 10-year security fell 1/32 to yield 2.37%. In commodities WTI crude on the NYMEX declined -1.5% to $76.80 per barrel.

Large gains on 10/21/14 backed by higher volume totals while leadership (stocks hitting new 52-week highs) expanded met the definition of a "follow-through day" confirming a new uptrend for the market (M criteria). The S&P 500 Index, Nasdaq Composite Index, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average have collectively rebounded above their respective 50-day and 200-day moving average (DMA) lines, technically putting the market in a healthier stance.

Retail Index Rose While Other Groups Were Indecisive

The Retail Index ($RLX +0.64%) was a positive influence on the major averages, however other industry groups provided little help. Financial shares had a slightly negative bias as the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -0.11%) and the Bank Index ($BKX -0.05%) ended slightly in the red. The Biotechnology Index ($BTK +0.09%) and the Networking Index ($NWX +0.22%) both posted small gains while the Semiconductor Index ($SOX -0.10%) finished with a small loss. Energy-related shares fell as the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -0.94%) and the Oil Services Index ($OSX -0.86%) both lost ground, and the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -0.24%) also edged lower.

PICTURED: The Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -0.94%) remains below its 50-day and 200-day moving average (DMA) lines after rebounding from its October lows.

Loss on Heavy Volume a Sign of Distributional Pressure

Synchronoss Technologies (SNCR  -$3.44 or -6.52% to $49.31) gapped down today for a loss on higher volume, a sign of distributional pressure. Prior highs in the $47 area define initial support to watch above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line ($46.17) on pullbacks. Damaging violations would raise concerns and trigger technical sell signals.

SNCR was last shown in this FSU section on 10/27/14 with annotated graphs under the headline, "No Resistance Remains; Perched at Secondary Buy Point", after highlighted in yellow while perched near its 52-week high with an annotated weekly graph in the earlier mid-day report (read here). It blasted higher on the next session after the high-ranked Computer Software - Enterprise firm reported earnings +35% on +40% sales revenues for the Sep '14 quarter. Prior quarterly earnings had been above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) of the fact-based system, and it has a strong annual earnings (A criteria) history.

The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 277 in Mar '14 to 290 in Sep '14, a 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.
