Grand Slam: Dow reaches 23,000 in fourth 1,000-point gain this year

 

 

Call it four of a kind. Call it a grand slam, if you want.

 

On Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average breached a new 1,000-point threshold for the fourth time this year, as the world’s most closely watched gauge for judging the strength of the U.S. stock market topped 23,000 points for the first time.

 

In early trading, the Dow reached 23,002.20, a gain of around 45 points over Monday’s close. After briefly breaching the 23,000-point mark, the Dow then pulled back to close at 22,997.44, still good enough for a gain of more than 40 points on the day.

 

The symbolism of the Dow hitting another 1,000-point threshold underscored what has been a bull-market run for the stock market.

 

The Dow reached 20,000 points for the first time on Jan. 25, topped 21,000 barely a month later on March 1, and then summited 22,000 on August 2 before hitting the 23,000-point mark on Tuesday. For the year, the Dow has climbed 16.3 percent.

 

San Stovall, chief investment strategist with CFRA Research, said that while reaching another 1,000-point level is a bit of a beauty contest, the fact that the Dow has done so four times in less than a year says something about the quality of the U.S. stock market, the state of many businesses, and where the economy stands.

 

“This fourth milestone is simply a reminder that the economy in the United States, and globally, is firing on all cylinders,” Stovall said. “The economy is expanding, earnings are growing, and just as important, inflation is not keeping pace. This also means the Fed will have no need to increase the pace of interest-rate hikes.”

 

Stovall added that since there have been several upbeat earnings reports for the third quarter of the year, the odds are good that the Dow’s gains will continue.

 

“It seems like this will be the 23rd quarter in a row that actual earnings exceed Wall Street’s estimates,” Stovall said. “Investors feel encouraged about the market right now.”

 

The Dow’s gains Tuesday were fueled by investor enthusiasm for some of the latest quarterly earnings reports. Health care provider and insurance company UnitedHealth was the day’s standout stock, as its shares rose about 5.6 percent to $203.89 after it delivered better-than-expected quarterly results and raised its outlook Tuesday.

 

Johnson & Johnson shares also had a good day, rising 3.5 percent to $140.79 after it reported strong quarterly results. J&J also benefited from winning the reversal of a verdict in a $72 million case in which the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer said she contracted the disease by using Johnson’s Baby Powder and other talc-based products.

 

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to note Tuesday’s Dow gains, which have occurred since he took office in January.

 

President Trump, who often has mentioned how much the stock market has risen since his election, didn’t tweet anything about the Dow’s performance being tied to any policies put in place by his administration. Since Trump’s election on Nov. 8, 2016, the Dow has risen more than 25 percent.

 

Eric Schiffer, chief executive of Los Angeles-based private-equity firm the Patriarch Organization, said that anticipation over what economic policy measures the Trump administration has in store is adding to how individuals see and approach the current stock market.

 

“Investors are strategically thrusting into the dominant stocks to win from future policy like infrastructure and tax cuts,” Schiffer said. “And the incredible backdrop of global growth is allowing investors to keep their Xanax prescriptions from getting filled.”

 

Among Bay Area Dow components, Apple shares rose 0.4 percent, to close at $160.47, Chevron ended the day up by 0.1 percent to finish at  $120.22 a share, Cisco Systems shares rose 0.2 percent to close at $33.60 and Intel edged up by 0.1 percent to close at $39.79.

 

Oil prices, generally another barometer of investor sentiment, edged upward Tuesday after the American Petroleum Institute said there has been a large drawdown on U.S. crude oil inventories. Also propping up oil prices this week, Iraqi forces moved to retake Kirkuk — a major city in a northern Iraqi oil-producing region — which had been held by Kurdish forces.
