    Stock Market Today: May 27, 2015

    After a tranquil five-day stretch on Wall Street last week, investors have been taken on a rollercoaster ride the last two days, with steep losses yesterday followed by a notable rally today. The pickup in volatility is likely the result of some uncertainty in the market both here and abroad, which can often produce the wide swings in trading that we have seen the last two days.

    Using a Value Line Report: Caterpillar Faces Persistent Headwinds
    Jeffrey Hirt  |  05/27/2015
    The Dow Jones Industrial average is the second oldest market index. Although still one of the most often consulted barometers of the condition of the stock market, it is now really more of an industrial index by designation only, as the components within it comprise a much broader swath of domestic business fields. Today, Caterpillar (CAT) stands out as a true industrial company still harbored in the Dow 30.

    The Dogs Of The Dow Were Well Behaved In April
    Robert M. Greene  |  05/27/2015
    The Dogs of the Dow were well behaved in April. Relative to the rest of the Industrial Average, the Dogs had their best month of the year, outperforming the non-Dogs by more than 300 basis points. In all, the Dogs increased 3.5% for April, while the other 20 stocks in the blue chip index inched ahead just 0.2%. General Electric (GE) was the top-performing pup, as its share price climbed 9.1% in April, while Caterpillar (CAT) stock nearly kept pace, advancing 8.6% in price. On the other side of the ledger, only two of the Dogs, McDonald’s (MCD) and Pfizer (PFE) saw their share prices decline, though the losses were quite modest, at 2.5% and 0.9%, respectively.

    The final trading week of May, a month that has historically been a difficult one for those long equities, got off to a very bearish start. Indeed, the major equity averages were notably lower only a few minutes into the session and the losses widened as the trading day progressed.

    Hain Celestial: A Short SWOT Analysis
    Michael Lavery  |  05/26/2015
    The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. stock has steadily climbed for the last several years, advancing about 240% since the end of 2011. The large-cap issue’s stellar performance has been underpinned by the steep growth trajectory of the natural/organic food segment, which has been expanding at a much faster pace than its conventional packaged food counterpart.
