Novice Trade: Illumina Real Money Pro($)

ILMN's three-month at-the-money implied volatility is at about the median level.
An avalanche of desperate restructurings or outright failures for dozens of oil companies is finally upon us.
Don't believe Tuesday's uptick in Chesapeake Energy's stock, there's still bad news ahead.
The company's bonds are clearly on the riskiest end of the high-yield ladder.

It's as if China is the only one out there using commodities.
I missed nothing as the market flatlined all afternoon. Here is the intraday on SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY).   In commodities land: oil down 16 cents (barely above $40/barrel), natural gas down eight cents, gold up $13/ounce, silver up 15 cents/ounce, copper marginally lower, wheat up $7.25, corn up 0.6%, coffee up $7.30 (that's a big move) and lumber up smartly by $8.60 to $247.  High yield continues junky. iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) took a nearly 1% hit and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) similarly lower. Chesapeake Energy (CHK) debt down $18 in last two days. Veritas hung deal -- I discussed previously. Some of my bearish market view stems from the weakness in junk and the widening spreads. But, for now, the markets are not paying attention. The U.S. dollar weakened, against consensus/speculators who seem to be large the U.S. dollar long. Municipals were bid better and closed-end muni funds were broadly higher (I continue to sell into the strength). Banks were marginally higher-- good performance in light of recent strength. Retail mixed. Favs Macy's (M) and Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) slightly lower while Wal-Mart (WMT) was unchanged. Autos continue their rally. Health care weak on the UnitedHealth Group's (UNH) warning earlier in the day. Oils gave up some of yesterday's gains. Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) -- my two shorts -- down large fractions. (T)FANG -- Tesla (TSLA), Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google, now Alphabet (GOOGL) -- was five for five lower, but marginally so as none of the ingredients had a major move down NOSH -- Nike (NKE), O'Reilly (ORYL), Starbucks (SBUX) and Home Depot (HD) -- was weaker except a strong gain for NKE. Gap (GAP) lowers 2015 earnings per share view from a range of $2.75 to $2.80 to a range of $2.38 to $2.42. Stock down by 2% after hours. Nike declares large buyback and 2-for-1 split.  Shares up about $4 after hours. Williams-Sonoma (WSM) beats but moves EPS and sales guidance lower (EPS to a range of $1.52 to $1.62 versus consensus of $1.67). Shares down about $3 after hours. Apple (AAPL) stood out today on the upside, Allergan (AGN) on the downside (down almost $9 on the day, though it's up almost $6 after hours). See below on new tax rules and my Comments Section back and forth with Bobby Lang. Speaking of Allergan, Treasury just gave details on new inversion rules to protect its own tax base. Biotechs reversed yesterday's gains and were down by nearly 2%. Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) was a standout, up almost 16% on the day. The Treasury's anti-inversion rules should put a brake on some biotech M&A activity Square (SQ) initial public offering better received than I expected. Square's big brother, Twitter (TWTR), continuing its rally from the recent lows. New lows in Hedge Fund Hotel SunEdison (SUNE). Carleton English, Jim "El Capitan" Cramer and I weighed in on the stock today on TheStreet.
