Market Wrap-Up for Sept.30 (NEM, ABX, MO, RAI, FCX, CF, more)

It appears the momentum crowd may be satisfied with September’s gains as the market gains this morning reversed lower on this last day of the month. Even gold prices pulled back, with mining stocks like Newmont Mining ( NEM ) and Barrick Gold ( ABX ) giving back some of the recent gains. Also heading lower were names related to other parts of the commodity space, including CF Industries ( CF ) , Mosaic ( MOS ) , Deere ( DE ) , and Freeport McMoran ( FCX ) . There was an analyst downgrade of tobacco companies Altria Group ( MO ) and Reynolds American ( RAI ) this morning. Both of those stocks continue to be big winners on our Best Dividend Stocks list and their 6%-plus dividend yields are still attractive, but a pull-back would certainly be welcome as far getting better entry levels. Volume did creep up by the close, with the NYSE trading 4.28 Billion shares and the Nasdaq trading 2.34 Billion shares./. As for our recommended list, we are always monitoring our data for any potential changes. Going into today’s action, just 3 of our 47 recommended names are trading lower than when we first recommended the names, with the worst performer being down a mere 2% (and that’s not including dividend payouts).
