Some stocks are as safe as Treasuries, with vastly better yield.
In 1973, the Nifty Fifty consumer-growth stocks led the market while industrials lagged. But when relative weakness began to emerge in the Nifty Fifty, the depressed industrials began to stabilize and exhibit relative strength -- and a bear market emerged. Similarly, energy and other inflation-oriented stocks led the market in the early 1980s. But then energy stalled in 1981 and the depressed consumer sector stabilized and began to rally -- a shift that preceded the 1981-82 cyclical market correction. The big bear market of 2000-2002 emerged when the Nasdaq faltered in early 2000 and consumer-defensive stocks rallied. Though today's bifurcated market is occurring under the umbrella of easy money, it still closely resembles the three cycles mentioned above as the relationship between leaders and laggards changed (which is happening now). The most popular and extended stocks -- like Apple (AAPL), which broke its 200-day moving average for the first time in two years amid the weakest relative action since 2012 -- are becoming victims. And as in the past, such drops are swift -- providing little chance for trend-chasing traders and investors to exit stocks that had previously been in clearly defined uptrends (think Disney or Comcast). And just as in 2000, a loss of momentum in IPOs could presage broader weakness.     It should be emphasized that not all leaders are weakening. But enough are increasingly unsteady to suggest that a significant change is afoot. As to the laggards, none have reversed their major declines -- but many are at oversold extremes, much like the laggards of 1973, 1981 and early 2000. The bottom line: change in the markets is often a predictor of further weakness. As to the short term, Mr. Market on Monday had a near 90% up day (known as a "Lowry Day") for the first time since December 2014. But there are differences between yesterday and eight months ago. For instance, Monday's put/call ratio was a very low 0.57 vs. 1.24 last December. The December 2014 up day was also based on Fed news and led by the Nasdaq. By contrast, there was little news on Monday beyond the Berkshire/Precision merger announcement, and yesterday's actio
The Precision CastParts deal shows it's time to short Berkshire.
"A principle of probability and statistics which states that as a sample size grows, its mean will get closer and closer to the average of the whole population. The law of large numbers in the financial context has a different connotation, which is that a large entity which is growing rapidly cannot maintain that growth pace forever. The biggest of the blue chips, with market values in the hundreds of billions, are frequently cited as examples of this phenomenon."

Drilling Down on Oil's Effects Real Money Pro($)

Even though oil prices bounced today, the larger (and growing) view is that we will see another leg down. The knee-jerk reaction is that gas prices will go lower. Remember that despite the drop-off in gas prices during the first half of 2015, we didn't see any meaningful pickup in consumer spending, at least as measured by retail sales data. If some are correct that at the pump prices could hit if not fall below $2 per gallon, perhaps that help put a crowbar in the consumer's wallet or at least get them to swipe their iPhone 6 or their Apple (AAPL) Watch more frequently.
