The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 9139 on 11/05/08, as investors woke up to a new President and a reality check that our Economy is very bad right now. The ADP Employment figure came out this morning and it was horrible, reducing US payrolls by 157,000. The Jobs Number on Friday will be even worse! First we need to get past tomorrow's Retail Sales number which is going to be ugly! Starting to get the picture? We had a great rally, but things are still grim out there, you have to be cautious! Check out the Dow Jones Chart that I made today and the price points that I am watching for the Dow. Let us all hope 9000 holds when we test it again, unless you are short of coarse!
The Stock Market Futures were down slightly this morning, The Dow Jones futures were only down 70 points in pre market trading but selling quickly hit the market when stocks opened. The Dow Jones was pretty much down around 300 during the afternoon hours and it got worse in the last hour. Steel Stocks and Technology Stocks were very weak today, especially Apple ( AAPL ), Google ( GOOG ), and ( AMZN ). The Solar Stocks such as First Solar ( FSLR ) and Energy Conversion Devices ( ENER ) were weak today after going up all week long. Meredith Whitney came on CNBC at 3:30pm and gave some comments on the Financial Stocks, this really hit the market hard during her talk on the closing bell. Her comments are a must read!

Biggest Stock Gainers - November 5th, 2008

The hottest stock today was Radian Group ( RDN ). This company came out with some nice earnings which caused the stock to spike higher.

Chesapeake Energy ( CHK ) was outstanding today. There are rumors that BP is looking at the company as far as a buyout. This sent shares of Chesapeake Energy up 16% at one point. CHK was strong all day with heavy volume. Major pullbacks should be bought if you get them. I see $30's in the near future unless the market tanks again.

How about Jim Cramer's call on MasterCard ( MA ) yesterday, only 24 hours left to go Jim!

Meredith Whitney CNBC 11/05/08 - Citigroup C

Meredith Whitney was on CNBC today, 11/05/08 ( November 5th, 2008 ) Here are some of her comments:

Financials and Economy are so far off the tracks right now....

Where are we in the Financial Sector?

We are in a new part of the cycle, going forward, there will be contraction in the overall mortgage market - credit card lines are going to shrink, credit will be taken away from companies, we've never seen this before, also we have an economy that is not doing good right now. Earnings estimates on Wall Street are still to high.

How much is priced in?

Citigroup ( C ), Wells Fargo ( WFC ), Bank of America ( BAC ), JP Morgan ( JPM ), I think these companies still have further down to go, we are in for a rude awakening, I see a slow grind down for these stocks. I think Citigroup goes into the single digits. The stock prices in the financial sector are still way to high, wait for lower prices.

Meredith warned people in August before this whole downturn, so I always find what she has to say interesting. She called this financial crisis before anyone about a year ago....she has even received death threats, but she has been right!

Biggest Gainers 11/05/08 - Hot Stocks

Chesapeake Energy ( CHK ) - I can't help but mention this stock first, it is breaking out hard to the upside with strong volume this morning. As I mentioned in my technical analysis, you get a CHK close over $25 you could be looking at a huge rip higher in stock price. Watch this stock! The CEO could be buying his shares back that he was forced to dump!

Radian Group RDN is breaking out on positive earnings, this is the hottest stock today.

Art Cashin CNBC 11/05/08 - Barack Obama

Art Cashin CNBC 11/05/08 - Comments on the Election and on Barack Obama

Last night was a Historic evening for America....people are slightly nervous however, there was mild disappointment in Barack Obama's acceptance speech, Obama chose to separate Wall St and Main St. again in his speech, the stock markets will be sensitive to each move he makes going forward. The Obama administration has to get up and running fast because we have a lot of financial problems out there with our economy.

ADP report: I think the Jobs Report on November 7th might be worse..we will have to look at what the ISM number does today at 10am.

Stocks to Watch today: November 5th, 2008

MasterCard ( MA ) & Visa ( V ) - I continue to watch these two stocks after Jim Cramer mentioned them yesterday calling for MasterCard to hit $180 in the next 48 hours.

Ambac ( ABK ) is falling this morning because after reporting an earnings loss of $8.45 per share.

CIT Group ( CIT ) - As I mentioned yesterday in the low $5's, watch this stock closely. It broke out to the upside right before the close and actually was trading at $6.80 in after hours last night. The stock has great volume and news so keep it on your watch lists.

Las Vegas Sands ( LVS ) & Hartford Financial ( HIG ) - Watch these two stocks, I only like them if they break through the highs of the day after 9:45am Est.
