In my Diary I strenuously attempt to stress transparency (in my activity and securities analysis), say I am wrong when my actions are incorrect a…
The market will look and consider Chipotle's food issues to be an unbelievable blessing in disguise.
The gourmet burger chain's stock is ahead of itself and priced for near-perfection in a sector that is overvalued.
Strength in the dining sector only appears to be rising as people return to their busy lives and a quick bite to eat with the passage of summer.

The market was resilient today. After a late-morning swoon, a nice rally off the lows. Bent, but didn't break -- though late in the day I am seeing something of another fade. The Russell 2000 Index is a relatively superior performer. Banks stronger, though I don't expect a Fed rate hike this week or this year. Baird upgrades shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) . REITs -- dead-cat bounce? The Bad T
I start the day with a small net short position, having added recently to my ProShares UltraShort S&P 500 ETF (SDS) long and some individual shorts. I have also added to some longs, including Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) , Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) and J.C. Penney (JCP) .

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar retreated. The price of crude oil got schmeissed for the second day in a row, down by $1.22 to $43.68. Gold was up$2.20. I still look for a technical break under current support of $1,300 to $1,310. Agricultural commodities: wheat +2, corn +2 and soybeans flat after this week's schmeissing. No change for lumber. Bonds rallied a bit after recent weakness. I wouldn't be surprised if the small rally continues, but I stand on my "generational bottom in yIelds" thesis, as 1.60% on the 10-year remains support now The 10-year U.S. note yield (1.70%) dropped by four basis points and the long bond by two basis points. The 2s/10s spread dropped by one basis points to 93 basis points. Municipals and junk bonds moved little. Banks continued to weaken as the Wells Fargo (WFC) news worsens. I covered my Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short yesterday. Insurance and brokerages showed little in either direction. REITS continue to trade poorly -- a fractional gain after being manhandled over the last week. iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (IYR) has broken down. Energy stocks fell for the second day in a row -- good for my U.S. Oil Fund (USO) , Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) shorts. I'm sticking with them.  Biotech strengthened on the heels of Allergan (AGN) . A former member of my Biotech Basket, Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) , is up nearly 64% after hours on positive drug news. Paradise lost! Autos stalled. Retail rallied small. Dead-cat bounces in Dollar Tree (DLTR) , Dollar General (DG) and Home Depot (HD) , me thinkst. Agricultural equipment was mixed. My short, Caterpillar (CAT) , rose. Deere (DE) "Prudence" fell. Entertainment was slightly lower. Popular Disney (DIS) continues to be a great short. Staples were lower. My core short, Coca-Cola (KO) , made a new 2016 low. (T)FANG traded as flat as my Grandma Koufax's potato pancakes. In individual stocks, Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) were catching their collective breath. Twitter was better on some new product news. Here are some great value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer says demand is down but not out.  Divine Ms M made another great call.  "Cousin" Gary Morrow doesn't like Ford's (F) technicals. And i don't like the company's fundamentals! Rev hates the macro monkeys.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on a balanced view.
