This letter has continually stressed the extreme seTectivity of the '; '' market since January Ist3195L During this twenty-month perIod, individual issues have undergone bear markets of their own despite the fact that the ;- ' industrial averages advanced from the February 1951 high of 257 to a recent —- ,- ,high of 281. If the general market averages should enter a dec lining phase, , ' the graphs of individual issues indicate that the decline might be as se- , lective as the advance. Some of the issues that have already declined sharp' ly would undoubtedly be less vulnerable than tbe over-exploited issues that' are still selling near their highs. Also, the first group would most likely reach their lows in the earlier stages of any general decline, when,as and ' if it occurs. I am listing ten such issues below. I do not advise their im- mediate purchase but suggest watching their action closely if the downSide objectives noted below are reached. After the downside objectives are reach 'ed, they undoubtedly would have to undergo a period of backing and filling , to 'build up abase, so no immediate move would be indicated. However, these, issues, if they reach the downside objectives indicated, would appear to be — good long term purchases regardless of whether the general market was in a ' 'declining or advancing phase ,', ,ABBOTT LABORATORIES (49) is a prominent manufacturer of pharmaceuti- , cal, medicinal, chemical, biological and vitamin products.
