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.

Takeaways Aplenty Today Real Money Pro($)

Who's more scared? The bulls, in all likelihood. Sentiment, coincident with the market's schmeissing, has built up in recent days. That's a potential plus, but sentiment is not a terrific timing tool. Just turn on CNBC and watch the preponderance of Debbie Downers, some of whom were optimistic a week ago and 100 S&P handles higher.    Too many sell weakness and buy strength -- not my game, as I will leave that to the machines. A flight to quality today, with the yield on the 10-year U.S. note under 2.1%. Though still up smartly, iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) is at the low of the day now (another signpost of a possible stock market turn higher). In light of yield drop, the weak action in closed-end municipal bond funds is conspicuous. I like the idea of shorting bonds against muni funds now. And I continue to look for the ratio of muni bond yields to taxables to contract in a rising rate setting. Gold stronger... again. Crude closes up 1%. I have been active trading today. I give it a reasonable chance of a "Ludicrous Forecast" -- though there is still 60 minutes to go! Apple (AAPL) just turned green. Netflix (NFLX) is extending gains. My Gnome hears that Warren Buffett is sniffing around the bad acting autos. I like my SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) purchase and I didn't go long on the expectation of a $1 move higher. I am now net long (small but expanding), my highest long exposure since the August lows. I have added to SPY, Radian (RDN), Bank of America (BAC), JPMorgan Chase(JPM), Citigroup(C), SunEdison (SUNE) speculative, Yahoo (YHOO) and ProShares Short 20+ Year Treasury (TBF) today.  To this observer, a number of stocks are n
