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. Rev Shark gets Billy Joel on us -- it's all just a matter of trust.
