Reviewing My Investment Troops Real Money Pro($)

Allergan (AGN) (updated earlier ) up by another six beaners (that's up $6 to those that understand my slang) to over $221.80. This favorite large-cap stock for 2017 was put on my Best Ideas List (only recently) in late December at $194.

Trade of the Week: Short Apple Real Money Pro($)

The supply/demand imbalance -- characteristic of the last few months for the iPhone 7 Plus -- has normalized as shipment times dropped from more than two weeks at the end of November to only one to four days by mid to late December. (Note: Shipment times for the iPhone 7 have been one day for over a month). This could lead to a reassessment of unit shipments for both the March and June quarters. Consensus estimates for iPhone shipments in the current (March) quarter of 55 million to 57 million units look too optimistic by 3 million to 5 million units given the strength of the U.S. dollar and a weak holiday selling season for consumer technology. News of a second round of production cuts has been making the rounds. Quarter sales for the June interim should be down year over year at less than 40 million units vs. 43 million a year earlier. There continue to be trade and tariff issues that could plague the company under a Trump administration. While the rising equity market has lifted most boats, I see in light of the preceding factors that analyst estimates for Apple will be reduced in the weeks ahead. And if you believe the wailing of aggrieved fans across the Internet, it seems like plenty of loyal Apple supporters might be contemplating life outside the company's ecosystem. Looking out, the consensus is for "hockey stick" sales growth into the iPhone 8's introduction, based in part because of an IOS sub base being 45% larger than the iPhone6 base. I continue to remain skeptical for a host of reasons previously discussed.  Since Apple's shares are a money consumer at more than $116 a share, more aggressive traders may consider buying puts or selling calls on Apple.

The U.S. dollar strengthened today, but closed well off the day's (spike) high. Oil vey! Crude down $1.46 after trading higher in the early going. Gold up $9. I like and added to my growing SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) long. I discussed my rationale in my Bloomberg interview. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.01, corn up $0.04, soybeans down $0.08 and oats up $0.07. Lumber down $2. Bonds got schmeissed early on with 9-basis-point rise in the 10-year but the gain declined to only 2 basis points by day's end. The yield on the 10-year closed at about 2.45% (up 2 basis points) and the long-bond yield rose by less than 1 basis point. Municipals were for sale, but closed-end muni-bond funds ripped. Not sure why ... maybe just a cessation of tax selling. Junk wasn't junky and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) climbed by another $0.11. Banks were stronger, but off day's highs. If there was ever a consensus view of a sector, banks are it! Insurance was relatively quiet. I added to my Lincoln National (LNC) and Metlife (MET) shorts -- liking the reward vs. risk now. And I recently added to my Hartford Financial (HIG) long. Brokerages higher but well off highs, Goldman Sachs (GS) dramatically so. Old tech was quiet. Retail was lower but has begun to creep up late in the day. Autos had a nice showing in light of Trump Twitter storm. Biotech strong led by Celgene (CELG) , Gilead Sciences (GILD) and my fav, Allergan. Merck (MCK) shorts were squeezed (up $8), but speculative biotech did little. Fertilizers flatlined as ag commodities were mixed. Consumer staples were mixed as the currency got stronger. Another up day for Campbell Soup (CPB) . Ag equipment up, with both Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) up a beaner. Shorted more Caterpillar as I favor upside/downside opportunity now. (T)FANG was very strong most of the day but is weakening as the day progresses. Alphabet (GOOGL)  up nicely. In individual stocks Oaktree Capital (OAK)  gained (maybe tax selling is over), DuPont (DD) holding well, along with Radian (RDN) . Apple (AAPL) didn't participate in the market rise.  Here are some value-added contributions on our site today:   1. Welcome back Jimmy! Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the hit and miss parade. 2.
