TABELL'S MARKET LETTER 35 WALL STREET, NEW YORK 5, N. Y. Digby 4-4141 The increasing investor confidence of which we have written about in several recent letters continues to be an important factor in market action. Te techn5r,al behavior and supply and demand factors continue to favor the better grade, dividend paying issues. rany issues of this type have built up strong base patterns over the past three years and have broken out or appear to be on the verge of breaking out of these accumulation areas. This formation iil also pre'3ent in numerous special situations. The run-of-the-mill speculative issues appear in need of a longer period of accumulation and consolidation before any worthwhile move is indicated. I would be cautious about following strength on this type of issue and would confine purchases to reactionary periods. It appears that we have reached a phase of the market Ihere individual issues must be followed closely. 'file averages will most likely remain in a relatively narrow trading range but there will be excellent opportunity for profit in individual situations. We have graphs on almost every listed,issue on the New York Stock Exchange and New York Curb and welcome inouiries s to the technical status of in- dividual issues. .
