Apple-Netflix chatter borders on the ridiculous.

Checking Out ECB 'Taper' Talk Real Money Pro($)

The Fed's Jeffrey Lacker rained on the market parade yesterday.  Janus' Bill Gross was on my theme -- the market as a casino.  The Fed is "bubble blind."  Apple (AAPL) is named the largest U.S. tax avoider. 
Out here, you see a group of companies focused on the customer.
Better-performing stocks tend to stand out on flat market days.
The changes reportedly sought by the EU to Google's Android practices could have a big impact on a very profitable mobile search ad business.
The U.S. currency strengthened. The price of crude oil rose by $0.57. Gold fell by $3 to $1,314. In numerous "Takeaways" I have argued that $1,300 to $1,310 support could be penetrated to the downside. I suspect we might be close to it now. Agricultural commodities: wheat, down $0.06; corn, up $0.10; soybeans, up $0.19; and oats, up $0.05. (Watch these "fert" fans!) Lumber, down $2. Bonds weakened in price and rose in yield. The 10-year note rose by one basis point to 1.619%. The 2s/10s spread fell by one basis point to 82 basis points -- still near a multi-month low (more on this in my opener tomorrow). Municipals and junk bond prices got hit. However, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a penny. Closed end muni bond funds suffered from profit taking. Banks were slightly lower as Wells Fargo (WFC) made another multi-week low. I would still avoid the financial sector, and especially Warren's bank. (More on this on Tuesday morning). Insurance stocks were mixed. I added to Hartford Financial (HIG) . Still short Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) (but small). Autos were higher, led by General Motors (GM) even though there were negatives signs in the monthly sales data. More evidence of "peak autos." Old tech hit. IBM (IBM) led to the downside. Energy stocks uneven despite higher oil prices. Retail was a downside market feature as discussed in my JCPenney post. August retail sales were poor and the inclement (warm) weather hurts the group's top line. Biotech was down by 1%. Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) rolling over (again). Staples hit on a stronger dollar. No Coke, Pepsi! New low for Coca-Cola (KO)
Action Alerts PLUS holdings are preparing for a smartphone showdown, while fellow holding Walgreens could see a boost to earnings.
If Google, Microsoft and Apple have all made major investments in the ed-tech space, it should clearly be on the radar of investors.
Breadth is running very poor -- at more than 2 to 1 negative.
Alcoa's looks fine; Apple hasn't done anything wrong since mid-September.
