(Corrects story from earlier Friday to say 3M set an all-time intraday high of $140.43 on Dec. 31.)
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Dow Jones Industrial Average set its all-time intraday high at 16,588 on Dec. 31, while the other major averages continued to set new highs between Jan. 15 and Jan. 23.
One of the factors that caused the Dow to peak first was the simmering turmoil in emerging markets.
The five Dow components I am focusing on today reached parabolic highs between Dec. 9 and Jan. 22, and all five now have negative weekly chart profiles as their stock specific bubbles popped. Boeing (BA) has been the biggest loser, down 15.1% since setting a new all-time intraday high at $44.57 on Jan. 22. 3M (MMM) lost 13.7% since setting its all-time intraday high at $140.43 on Dec. 31.
All international companies benefited from the global growth stories in emerging markets, but economic growth and potential inflation have made it more difficult to maintain profitability internationally. Many U.S companies have kept profits overseas to avoid corporate tax payments here at home, but now volatile currency fluctuations may adversely affect profitability.
These five Dow stocks should now be sold on strength.
