Oil was little changed near a two-month low after dropping below $40 a barrel in New York for the first time since August as producers’ output swelled global inventories to a record. U.S. supplies climbed to the highest for the season in more than 80 years.   A predawn police raid on an apartment building in a Paris suburb led to the deaths of two extremists, including the alleged ringleader of last weekend’s attacks – although there is no official confirmation; the raid also resulted in seven arrests. Police also found plans in the apartment for more attacks on Paris. French President Hollande renewed his case for an extension to a state of emergency decreed after the attacks and for changes to the constitution that he said would make France safer. Meanwhile, a French aircraft carrier headed to the eastern Mediterranean to intensify the bombardment of ISIS positions in Syria.   Hacking collective Anonymous accessed and took down more than 5,500 social media accounts associated with ISIS.

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 – Rally Fizzles

Rally Fizzles by Sinclair Noe DOW – 54 = 15,413SPX – 8 = 1746NAS – 22 = 390710 YR YLD – .03 = 2.48%OIL – 1.05 = 97.25GOLD – 7.50 = 1334.70SILV – .15 = 22.66 So, after a five day rally we finally got the fizzle. The markets don’t go straight up and the market had run quite a bit. The S&P 500 advanced 23 percent this year through yesterday, pulling within a half percentage point of the 23.5 percent gain in 2009. The S&P 500 was valued at 15.9 times estimated earnings as of yesterday, the highest since December 2009. While that’s up 16 percent this year and starting to feel a bit frothy, it’s still below the multiples at the market’s two previous peaks, when the ratio reached 16.5 in October 2007 and 25.7 in March 2000. Of the 169 S&P 500 companies that have reported results this season, 76 percent exceeded analysts’ predictions for profit, while 54 percent beat sales estimates. And 87% of stocks in the S&P 500 traded above their average prices from the past 50 days. Today, though 7 out of 10 main industries in the S&P 500 declined, with commodity, consumer-discretionary and financial companies dropping at least 0.6 percent to lead the retreat. Treasury yields fell to their lowest in three months on more bets that the Federal Reserve will maintain its stimulus efforts until next year. The Fed is kind of handcuffed from doing any tapering; the consensus is pushing it …
