Stocks to Watch - Right Now

Stock Market Closing Report - 8/18/17 August 18, 2017

Friday, February 27, 2009

Stock Market 2/28/09 Dow Jones Report

February 2009 has come and gone for the stock market. It was the worst February since 1933 as far as percentage losses. The Dow Jones fell from 8000.86 to 7062.93, down 11.72%

Here are some things I am watching for March of 2009:

  • Another auto bailout? General Motors GM and Chrysler have already received 17.4 billion in Federal Loans and are asking for an additional 21.6 Billion. President Barack Obama's auto task force is trying to restructure GM and Chrysler by March 31. If GM and Chrysler fail to make a convincing case, the administration could pull the loans and essentially force the companies into bankruptcy protection.

  • Jobs Report - Unemployment Rate - 3/6/09: Friday, March 6, 2009, the Government will release employment data. We could be looking at a record 700,000+ job losses in the month of February.

  • Where will the bottom be for the stock market? Who knows! The fact that we closed under 741 on the S&P 500 and below 7100 on the Dow Jones has me thinking things could get worse soon. The market wants to rally as we are very oversold but the steady flow of bad news keeps flooding the stock market. The crazy thing is the VIX has remained in the 40's through this whole down draft. You just don't see the panic like we had in late 2008. With the huge down move that we've seen since the beginning of 2008, I can't imagine the bottom will form easily. I'm still looking for that gigantic whoosh day where everyone throws in the towel. Also known as capitulation! When we get this, you could see a 30-40% move off the bottom.

Libor Rates - 2/27/09

Commodities Closing Prices - 2/27/09

Gold - 942.60
Oil - 44.35
Natural Gas - 4.21

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 7063 on 2/27/09, as the stock market opened up at new 52 week lows ( except the Nasdaq ) and rebounded throughout the day before falling in the final hour of trading. The Dow Jones Futures opened up the day very weak as details of the Citigroup ( C ) merger with the Government surfaced. Citigroup stock was down 39% to $1.51 at 3pm. Bank Stocks were crushed after a great start to the week. Other problems in the stock market today were the GDP number and the General Electric ( GE ) dividend cut. Fourth Quarter GDP fell to -6.2%. Wall Street expected -5.4% so this loss was greater then expected.

The start of March will come in like a Lion next week as we get the following economic data: 3/2: Personal Income, Personal Spending - 3/3: Auto Sales - 3/4: Fed Beige Book, Crude Oil Inventories - 3/5: Initial Claims - 3/6: Non farm Payrolls ( February Jobs Number ) Unemployment Number, Consumer Credit.

Friday, March 6, 2009 will be a critical day as we get the highly anticipated jobs number. Expect some weakness going into this number and you can bet it will be a huge stock market mover! If you are a stock market fanatic and enjoy trading, i'd suggest calling in sick next Friday!

So where do we stand? We keep breaking new lows and this suggest to me a bottom is not near. Even if we hit the bottom we will test it several times so you will have plenty of time to get back in. I personally don't think a case for the bottom can be made until several months from now. At the end of March the automakers we be asking for more money, in the beginning of April we start to get 1st quarter earnings ( they will be horrible - everyone spent money for Christmas and stopped spending in 2009 ). These are just a few concerns that are ahead. OK, I will stop rambling and tell you that I will have full technical analysis of the stock market over the weekend - Right Here

General Electric GE Dividend Cut 2/27/09 - Haynesville Shale

General Electric ( GE ) will cut their dividend from .31 cents per quarter to .10 cents per quarter starting in the 3rd quarter of 2009. GE hasn't officially announced this but David Faber of CNBC has announced this.

GE will save 9 billion dollars a year with this dividend cut as it will come down from $1.24 per year to $0.40 per year.

GE stock spiked to $9.00 on this news but has since tanked to around $8.60 per share. Right now the stock appears to be all over the place but the spike to $9 brought the Dow Jones back to even on the trading day.

In other General Electric news today, February 27, 2009, GE is getting into the Haynesville Shale:

Natural gas processor and transporter Regency Energy Partners LP on Friday said that it, along with Alinda Capital Partners LLC and an affiliate of GE Energy Financial Services, are forming a joint venture to finance and construct Regency's Haynesville expansion project.

Dallas-based Regency will contribute to the joint venture its Regency Intrastate Gas System in North Louisiana, valued at $400 million, in exchange for a 38 percent general partnership stake in the venture. GE Energy Financial Services and Alinda Capital Partners LLC will contribute to the joint venture $126.5 million and $526.5 million in cash for a 12 percent and a 50 percent stake, respectively.

The North Louisiana pipeline will transport gas from the Haynesville shale formation, one of the fastest growing U.S. natural gas fields, which stretches through parts of Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.

Being the founder of www.oilshalegas.com, I have done extensive research on all the energy shale plays in the USA and Canada. The haynesville shale, located in Louisiana and East Texas, has the potential to be the biggest natural gas field in America. If one day we convert our vehicles to compressed natural gas, the haynesville shale has enough gas to support this. The Marcellus Shale is up there as well!

Art what happened today?


We will have to see what happens in the next 60 days, saw some signs of this yesterday with Sallie Mae SLM. The market is testing the lows this morning.



President Obama has a lot of political capital but he seems to using it up, the gallop poll has him lower then Bush in the first month of Presidency, its confusing.


Citigroup News:


Dilution, Citi avoided death, were aren't going to kill then but we will break both of their arms.
If we break 740 on the S&P 500 and this could be a very tough week coming up next week.
