A Few Random Observations Real Money Pro($)

I am constantly surprised, at least over the last four quarters, how investors and the media initially respond euphorically to Caterpillar's earnings. I am staying short as the second-half outlook has deteriorated further based on recent dealer statistics. GM's $0.10 shortfall was from a higher effective tax rate and weak South America region results. I am a $36 buyer. BB&T's (BBT) results were about 2 cents lower than expected, but all from higher loan loss reserves. I am a buyer at $38.10 on today's weakness. Staying short small position in Facebook (FB). Shorted last night after hours at $85.05 and covered some down $2.50 from there.

Not Much to Say or Trade Real Money Pro($)

Today's market has thus far been characterized by another day of painfully low volume, a small bounce back for the market-leading biotech sector, strength in social media and high-beta tech, Qs (Nasdaq) over Ss (S&P 500), a modest drop in bond yields and little change in the indices.
The stress tests have set the stage for strength down the line.

Adding Small Long in BofA Real Money Pro($)

I am adding a small long position in Bank of America (BAC) at $15.85, and plan to expand the holding on any further weakness. Since the bank stress test, I have been waiting for an attractive entry point for this bank holding company below $16 per share. I reiterated my positive view on banks and financials Monday:
