Major Average End Worst Thanksgiving Week Since 1932

For the week, the Dow and S&P 500 posted their worst Thanksgiving week since 1932. The Dow was down -4.58%, the S&P lost -4.72%, and the Nasdaq fell -5.66%. The major averages ended with small losses after trading mostly higher throughout Friday's shortened post-Thanksgiving session. Light volume totals were reported as expected on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. Decliners led advancers by about 4-3 on the NYSE and by more than 2-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. New 52-week lows solidly outnumbered new 52-week highs on the Nasdaq exchange and on the NYSE while the new 52-week highs total on the Nasdaq exchange was in the single digits. There was 1 high-ranked company from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made a new 52-week high and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, down from the prior session total of 2 stocks. There were gains for only 2 of the 16 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page.

 

Optimism for a record breaking "Black Friday" brought in some confidence. European debt concerns eased somewhat, but contagion concerns remain. The euro zone's member states are considering dropping private sector involvement in the region's bailout fund. However, Italy's two- and five-year bond yields soared to euro-era highs and Moody's downgrade of Hungary's debt to junk status weighed on sentiment.

In commodities, crude oil advanced nearly 1% before falling back below $97 a barrel. Gold remained below $1,700 an ounce as the U.S. dollar caught bids. The 10-year note yield was down 21/32 to 1.96%.

Our monthly newsletter CANSLIM.net News will be published soon with an informative review of current market conditions, leading groups, and best buy candidates.  Via the Premium Member Homepage links to all prior reports and webcasts are always available.

PICTURED: The S&P 500 Index extended its losing streak to 7 consecutive sessions. Its -4.72% weekly loss marked its worst Thanksgiving week since 1932. Year-to-date the benchmark index is negative by -7.87%. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq is off -7.96% and the Dow is down -2.99% YTD.

Bank Index Posts Small Gain But Remains Near 2011 Lows

The Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +0.46%) and Bank Index ($BKX +0.52%) were standouts by simply posting small gains as most groups fell on Friday's session. Defensive groups gave no reward to safe haven investors as the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -1.12%) and Healthcare Index ($HMO -0.97%) sank.  The tech sector had a negative bias as the Semiconductor Index ($SOX -1.16%), Internet Index ($IIX -0.91%), Biotechnology Index ($BTK -0.78%), and Networking Index ($NWX -0.37%) ended unanimously lower.  The Retail Index ($RLX -0.81%) was weak, and energy-related shares fell as the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -0.92%) and Oil Services Index ($OSX -0.24%) lost ground.

Charts courtesy www.stockcharts.com

PICTURED: The Bank Index ($BKX +0.52%) posted a small gain, however the influential financial index has recently been slumping under its 50-day moving average line near 2011 lows.

Stalled After Rallying to a New High

F E I Co (FEIC -$0.58 or -1.57% to $36.32) color code was recently changed to green after it slumped well below its pivot point. Disciplined investors limit losses if a stock falls more than -7% from their purchase, so any who may have accumulated shares in recent weeks have likely been prompted to sell by its subsequent weakness. It finished -14.0% off its 52-week high today and it may be forming a new base pattern, but it needs to show some technical strength for its outlook to improve. Its last appearance in this FSU section was on 10/28/11 with an annotated daily graph under the headline, "Sprinting Straight Up From Bottom of 16-Week Cup Shaped Base." It had been highlighted in yellow that day in the mid-day report with a pivot point based on its 7/07/11 high plus 10 cents. It finished strong after a considerable gap up gain, rallying straight up from the bottom of a 16-week cup shaped base and triggering a technical buy signal while hitting a new all-time high with volume four times average behind the gain. However, it stalled after reaching the new high ground, rather than continuing on upward to make any meaningful progress.

The strong action came after reporting earnings +103% on +34% sales revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 versus the year ago period. Sales revenues and earnings increases (C criteria) have been strong in recent quarterly comparisons. Concern was previously noted because its annual earnings (A criteria) history was up and down, yet recent fundamental and technical action has been a better match for winning models of the fact-based investment system.

The weekly graph below shows that number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 284 in Dec '10 to 350 in Sep '11, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria.  Its Group RS Rating is only a mediocre 40 now, however leadership provided by other companies in the Electronics - Scientific Measuring industry group has been a reassuring sign concerning the L criteria.  Its small supply of only 37.6 million shares outstanding is a favorable characteristic concerning the S criteria. Disciplined investors avoid chasing stocks more than +5% above a prior chart high, and they always limit losses at -7% by selling if a stock falls that much from their purchase price.
