I'm sticking with my view that when laggards become leaders and leaders become laggards, a new bull market isn't likely forthcoming and there's near-term risk to the markets. See Jim "El Capitan" Cramer's column (which I agree with) about not trusting a commodities-based rally. The same applies to financial stocks. Weakness in financials typically presages broader market weak

I've previously sold the trading portions of my money-center-bank positions while maintaining my core investment holdings in the group.

Narrowing Some of My Longs Real Money Pro($)

I was optimistic last week that Monday and Tuesday's early weakness was a successful test of the August lows, so I added a trading layer to some of my long-term investment holdings.

Yesterday's "Takeaways" questioned the self-confidence expressed on the part of the bearish cabal in a market without memory from day to day. In the face of near-universal bearishness on the part of most talking heads and technical analysts, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose by 235, the S&P index climbed 36 points and the Nasdaq's advance exceeded 100 points. It was a great day for contrarians that bought the weakness of Friday through Tuesday in a detached and emotionless way. I have less confidence in the upside at today's close compared to my feel at yesterday's close. Bonds sold off but rallied most of the afternoon. Junk was better bid. Gold stinks. A large $3 billion buy program kept the market near its highs in the last 15 minutes. I saw some blemishes today; most importantly, financials closed off their highs. The announcement by Twitter (TWTR) that Dorsey will become the permanent chairman is something I have talked about for a while. I am not sure why it took so long because it has been on the table since I tweeted about it during the summer. Now the heavy lifting begins, and I remain confident that there is upside to the company's tactical moves over the near term that will unlock value and add to its user base. As

I Love the Big Citi Real Money Pro($)

Citigroup generates almost $70 billion of revenue annually. It's among the world's largest banks. Citi shares are down by about 20% from their 2015 highs and have fallen back to 0.8x tangible book value ($61 a share). That's historically been an important support level (i.e., in 2013's first quarter and other periods). Note that when C hit its 2015 highs this spring, shares traded at more than 0.98x tangible book value. The bank has increased its capital by over 200 basis points in the last 2-1/2 years. Basel III common-tier equity is at a record 11.5% vs. slightly above 9.2% when 2013 began. While Citi expects quarter-over-quarter credit costs to increase in the third quarter, net chargeoffs will likely remain unchanged. Net chargeoffs as a percentage of loans have trended steadily lower since 2014 and are now at 1.22% vs. 1.48% then. The bank serves em

Narrowing My SPY Stake Real Money Pro($)

I've taken my medium-sized long rental of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) down to small-sized in premarket trading at between $190.35 and $190.70.
But business is brisk for smaller and mid-sized banks.
