MyTrendTimer : Standard and Poors 500 of December 6, 2006
Weekly Comment about this asset/index
On Monday, Pfizer stock tumbled on news that they have halted the development of their most important new cholesterol treatment torcetrapib, which was seen as the successor to its blockbuster drug Lipitor. Mergers and Aquisition activity and lower oil prices provide a floor of support. Bank of New York and Mellon Financial have announced a $16.5 bln merger of equals, Station Casinos has received a $4.7 bln buyout offer and LSI Logic has said it will acquire Agere Systems for $4 bln. Stocks surged during Monday, sending the the SP 500 to a fresh six-year high, as investors welcomed a slew of merger news and a slump in oil prices. After selling off in the post-Thanksgiving period, stocks seem to have recharged Monday, at the start of what is often a good month on Wall Street. Oil prices were steadying as the possibility of a further output cut by OPEC producers who meet next week was balanced by milder weather and expected strong fuel stockpiles in the United States. Later, investors will look to the U.S. Institute for Supply Management's non-manufacturing gauge for November for clues on whether growth in the world's largest economy is slowing sufficiently to necessitate interest rate cuts in 2007. The dollar hit session lows against the euro and extended its slide against the yen on Tuesday after key third-quarter U.S. wage inflation data were revised down, lessening the likelihood of a rate rise. The productivity of U.S. workers rose by a weaker-than-expected 0.2 percent in the third quarter, while unit labor costs grew by less than initially thought in encouraging news for the Federal Reserve on wage pressures, government data showed on Tuesday.
