I'm starting to re-establish my shorts of Apple (AAPL) and Netflix (NFLX) this morning, shorting more AAPL at $99.35 and additional NFLX at $103.55.

Will Apple Buy Netflix? Real Money Pro($)

Netflix (NFLX) is trading higher on vague rumors of a takeover by Apple (AAPL).

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by nearly a beaner to $49.50. Nat gas climbed a penny. Another weak day for gold, down $5.50 to $1223; I wrote upon the subject yesterday and previously. Agricultural commodities: wheat +2, corn +7, soybeans +31(!), oats +1. Lumber +5. Bonds fell. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down half a beaner. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note was unchanged, with the yield at 1.86%. The long bond yield rose by two basis points to 2.67%. Municipals were flat and so were closed-end muni funds. The high-yield market was bid for. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 15 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up a nickel. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three cents higher and appears to be challenging the recent highs. Banks were the standout group despite no normalization in the yield curve. Insurance was broadly higher. My long, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), lagged -- I added. Brokerage stocks on fire. Morgan Stanley (MS) up 40 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) up $4. Retail rallied after being sold off for weeks. Shorts Nordstrom (JWN) was up 20 cents and Foot Locker (FL) up 75 cents. Energy stocks followed the rise in crude oil. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $2. Old tech was led by an outsize gain in IBM (IBM), up $3, but Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco (CSCO) all were stronger. Media lagged. Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS) were up only modestly. Staples were higher, but not materially so. Nevertheless, my Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLP) short (Trade of the Week) is stinking up the joint. Agricultural equipment was strong, with Deere (DE) up 80 cents and Caterpillar (CAT) up $1.30. (T)FANG looks like it is being rotated out of. NOSH was lower, save O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY). CRABBY was led by Citigroup (C) but hurt by Alleghany (Y). In individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) continues its forceful move, up $1.75. It is now in my shorting range. Stay tuned. Potash (POT) recovered from yesterday's loss. Twitter (TWTR) had a dead-cat bounce. DuPont (DD), my large cap fav, looks like it has a mission at $70. My fav short, Coca-Cola (KO), is flat. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) is better; I have been buying. Here are some valueable columns form Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer takes an opposite view of mine on banks. Hey, Mikey, he likes theme!  Rev Shark on lull lite.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on investor sentiment, which I believe is fueling the market, in part, this week.  Another one on sentiment from Rev.  Jeremy LaKosh on Staples (SPLS).

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar rallied strongly. And stocks lost their correlation to the currency, rising dramatically. Crude oil advanced by 60 cents to $48.68. But nat gas dropped by six cents. Gold declined by more than $22 an ounce; I cautioned about the precious metal yesterday. Again, participants "off sides" much like equities today.  Agricultural commodities were mixed: wheat +2.75, corn +0.75, soybean -2.25, oats -.50. Lumber rose by $2.50 following the buoyant housing data. Bonds fell. Dennis Gartman had quite negative comments on fixed income in his daily letter today. The yield on the 10-year note rose by one basis point to 1.85% and the long bond was flat at 2.63% despite a successful two-year auction. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end muni bond funds continued toward their second daily advance. High yield was also stronger. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) sprinted up nearly 1%. Banks flourished with talk of a June/July rate hike and, perhaps, a few more later in the year. Insurance rallied. I added to long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG). Brokerages rose but failed to rally as hard as the overall market. Retail was weak, though Home Depot (HD) rose $2. Best Buy (BBY) was a feature to downside after disappointing guidance. Surprisingly, my two shorts -- Foot Locker (FL) and Nordstrom (JWN) -- were marginally lower. Old tech was led by Microsoft (MSFT), which caught an analyst upgrade at Cowen and rose $1.50. IBM (IBM) was up a similar amount. Media was up, but marginally. Disney (DIS) and Comcast (CMCSA) were up 50 cents each. Energy stocks underperformed. My short Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up a quarter and short Schlumberger (SLB) rose 60 cents. Staples were higher. Autos were ahead, but small and non-threatening to the shorts. Ford (F) was up 15 cents and General Motors (GM) up 35 cents. Biotech, my new long target, rallied. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up $5. Buys Allergan (AGN) gained $3.60, Celgene (CELG) rose $2.35, Gilead Sciences (GILD) was up $2.70 and Intrexon (XON) was up 70 cents.  Ag equipment was well-bid. Caterpillar (CAT) was up 40 cents and Deere (DE) gained $1.40. (T)FANG was marvelous. Strong gains in Netflix (NFLX), Alphabet (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN) and Facebook (FB). NOSH was strong as investors/traders gobbled up O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and HD. CRABBY's six components were higher. In terms of individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) continued its ascent, rising $1.30. Potash (POT), which I sold yesterday, was conspicuously weaker despite Monsanto's (MON) $3 gain. Twitter (TWTR) hit new lows. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) rallied; I added at low levels today and over last few days. DuPont (DD) is the "world's fair," hitting another new high and up 85 cents. Here are some value-added columns posted on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on Catalyst City.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on an interesting comparison between U.S. Oil Fund (USO) and Alerian MLP (AMLP).  Bret "Meet George" Jensen says take a chill pill.  Tim Melvin on three interesting small bank ideas.
