We're at the end of week three with tracking the titans again. The markets spent much of this three-week period moving lower. Overall, these companies are trading lower than three weeks ago. The companies I've been tracking are Arctic Cat Inc. (ACAT), Carmike Cinemas Inc. (CKEC), Town Sports International Holdings Inc. (CLUB), Conns Inc. (CONN), DXP Enterprises, Inc. (DXPE), Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc. (FNP), Myers Industries Inc. (MYE), and Susser Holdings Corporation (SUSS).
The E-mini S&P 500 Futures Contract (ES) opened below R1. It had been testing that level in the pre-market. The ES moved down before testing R1 again and then moved in the area where it had begun the pit session. It was a fairly narrow trading range for the day.
