Today's Trades Real Money Pro($)

I'm sizing up the following bank longs: Citibank (C), Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB), MidSouth Bancorp (MSL), Southern National Bancorp (SONA) and Sterling Bancorp (STL). I covered my short of Wells F

Adding to My Bank Longs Real Money Pro($)

Bank of America (BAC): $16.50 to $16.75 Citigroup (C): $52.50 to $53 JPMorgan Chase (JPM): $63 to $64 Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB): $19.50 to $19.75 Southern National Bancorp (SONA): $11 to $11.50 MidSou
The trend lower continues apace today. No help from the massive supply of $12 billion of outflows from domestic equity funds. Bears win, thus far. How will "they" close? Last program standing will win. Ns (Nasdaq) over Ss (S&P). The U.S. dollar is weaker. Bonds well-bid and yields drop below 2.30%. Municipals also bid for; closed-end municipal funds broadly higher. The high-yield market is offered, though I am adding to Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB). Crude sinking, again (under $42 a barrel) on renewed supply concerns, pressuring my energy shorts (a good thing!). With the drop in the markets, my long "Trade of the Week," ProShares UltraShort S&P 500 (SDS) has been closed out for a profit. Remember, decay occurs in leveraged ETFs, so don't hold on for too long. Financials are broadly lower -- JP Morgan Chase (JPM) and Citigroup (C) down by more than 1.5%) and at day's lows. I have pared back banks, waiting for a 5% (or so) pullback, which we seem to be on the way toward during the last week. Be patient. I adore this group with a several-year horizon, but not near term. Consumer staples are conspicuously weak, aiding my Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) short ("Trade of the Week") Retail bouncing, albeit from low price levels. Lowe's (LOW) and Kohl's (KSS) are stars today. Biowreck is resuming its downward descent. The Bobbsey twins, Mallinckrodt (MNK) and Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), continue to stink up the joint. More Ackman woes.  In the Chart of the Day, I observed this afternoon that Valeant might need to bottom for the S&P to rally.  NOSH -- Nike (NKE), O'Reilly (ORYL), Starbucks (SBUX) and Home Depot (HD) -- as well as (T)FANG -- Tesla (TSLA), Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX), Google, now Alphabet (GOOGL) --  are lower. Alibaba (BABA) is the controversial stock today. I chimed in;  my "also ran" surprise might be emerging! Disney (DIS), a new short, turned around to the upside but SBUX not so much! In

My Buy Levels for the Banks Real Money Pro($)

Bank of America (BAC): $16.50 to $16.75 Citigroup (C): $52.50 to $53.00 JPMorgan Chase (JPM): $63.00 to $64.00  Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB): $19.50 to $19.75 Southern National Bancorp (SONA): $11.00 to $11.50 MidSouth Bancorp (MSL): Below $11 Sterling Bancorp (STL): $16.00 to $16.50
Another bullish day is at the highs now. We are 240 S&P handles from the late September low and from Carl Icahn's market warnings. Mind-blowing. Higher crude oil prices fueled the energy sector again today and aided the broader market. Interest rates are backing up; municipals were lower in price. One would think that closed-end municipal bond funds would sell off. They are not selling off. The high-yield market had a modest bid to it. The U.S. dollar was slightly stronger -- that's no longer a negative (though the consumer nondurables continue to lag for two straight days). Financials moved steadily forward led by the Big Three money center banks Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM). I did very little as my confidence level is low to nonexistent.
The benefits of higher interest rates, higher oil, etc.
I am re-shorting and adding back the life insurance stocks to my Best Ideas List (short) -- Lincoln National (LNC) at $52.90 and MetLife (MET) at $50.80.
