A Shopping List Real Money Pro($)

While I see many stocks with attractive reward vs. risk, they reside mostly on the short side.   Some stocks I plan to short on any …

And So Begins Another Day Real Money Pro($)

I start the day substantially net short.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rallied for a second day in a row, rising $1.50 to almost $51. Gold flat, no bounce. Agricultural commodities: Wheat up $0.07, corn down $0.05, soybean unchanged, oats up $0.05. Lumber up $1. Bonds got schmeissed but traded well off the day's lows (as the 10-year yield touched 2.5%). The 10-year and long-bond yields rose by 9 basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose by another 5 basis points to 130 basis points. Muncipals were lower. Junk bonds got hit badly, despite the rise in crude oil. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  rose $0.08. Banks were powerful to the upside. I reshorted at reasonably good prices in the afternoon, after covering my small rental shorts in pre-market trading earlier. Insurance stocks flew. Long Hartford Financial (HIG)  , which rose. Brokerages so strong -- Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) (up $7). Retail was strong led by Target (TGT) , Foot Locker (FL) , Nike (NKE) and JC Penney (JCP) (long). Autos were the "world's fair." I still have tag end short positions. I expect the upside move to get over-done short term, and I will reload on the short side. Energy stocks up, but small relative to the commodity. Old tech was clobbered. International Business Machines (IBM) , Intel (INTC) , Cisco (CSCO) (short and working nicely) and Microsoft (MSFT) got bashed along with the entire sector. Biotech was down 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) were weak. New lows Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRX) . Spec weak again (Portula Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) , Sage (SAGE) , Intrexon (XON) , FibroGen (FGEN) , ACADIA Pharmaceuticals (ACAD)  . Big pharma hurtin' badly, once more. Merck (MRK) , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Eli Lilly (LLY) being liquidated, much like tech. Media mixed message. Disney (DIS) lower. Ag equipment: Deere (DE) up large on an upgrade, though Caterpillar (CAT) still experiencing weak fundies. Consumer staples broadly lower. Campbell Soup (CPB) excelled on a relative basis, though. (T)FANG a source of funds. Tesla (TSLA) , Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) a collective mess. In individual stocks: DuPont (DD) , new high. Radian (RDN) up another up 2%. Oaktree Capital (OAK) not so mighty. Apple hit. Here are some value-added contributions on the site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on " Not What Bulls Wanted to See ."  2. "Meet" Brett Jensen on rotation.  3. Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins

Umm, Umm, Good Real Money Pro($)

Campbell Soup (CPB) is trading up $0.90 from today's add on buy.  Umm, umm, good.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened, a continuing headwind for companies that derive much from non-U.S. territories and regions. The price of crude oil +$3.85 on the OPEC agreement -- a feature of today's trading session. Gold down $15 to $1,175. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.06, corn down $0.01, soybeans down $0.10 (finally correcting the big advance) and oats up $0.01. Lumber up $1. Bonds got taken to the woodshed. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note rose by eight basis points and the long end climbed by a like amount. The 2s/10s spread widened by six bps to 128 basis points. Municipals got hit. Large losses, again in closed-end muni bond funds. Stay away!  High yield was modestly higher in price and lower in yield. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  down $0.02 cents. Banks responded to rising rates and a steeper yield curve. I am still in my short rental in Citigroup (C) , JP Morgan Chase (JPM) and Bank of America (BAC) . Brokerages were the "world's fair" as the Mnuchin hire (former Goldman partner) as Treasury secretary kindled the animal spirits in Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) . Insurance companies prospered. Long Hartford Financial (HIG) recovered. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) , lagged. Auto stocks were weak. See Peak Autos and disarray in auto lending markets.  Energy stocks exploded. Retail was conspicuously weaker with only Best Buy (BBY) on my screen, higher in share price. JC Penney (JCP) off only by a nickel. (I am bidding $9ish for JCP). Target (TGT) , Walmart (WMT) and Coach (COH) downside leaders. Old tech was noticeably weak - International Business Machines (IBM) , a downside feature. Consumer staples were weaker and my fav short in the sector, Coca-Cola (KO) was down 2% at a new y
The U.S. dollar was weaker. The price of crude oil dived. Crude down $1.91 to $45.17 a barrel. Gold down $2 after yesterday's strength. No biggie. Ag commodities lower: Wheat down $0.05, corn down $0.09, soybeans down $0.10 and oats down $0.04. Lumber down $7. Bonds are slightly higher on the day after early morning weakness. The yield on the 10-year note and 30-year bond are down by 1 to 2 basis points. The 2s/10s spread is flat at 121 basis points. Banks are mixed -- I made a series of short rentals. Brokerages strong -- Goldman Sachs (GS) still the "world's fair." Insurance is higher, save my long Hartford Financial (HIG) ! In miscellaneous finance, The Mighty Oak (Oaktree Capital (OAK) ) looks more healthy than in recent weeks. But I don't know why! Retails is mixed but long JCP hitting a double. Autos stocks slightly plus. Biotech reverses yesterday's weakness. Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG)  are winners. Big pharma continues to stink up the joint. Oil stocks, loved by the media on the "shows" yesterday, are downside leaders. Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) weaker. Consumer staples are lower. Short Coca-Cola (KO) tripping over itself. But long Campbell Soup (CPB) on the positive side. Consumer discretionary showing strength. My short Starbucks (SBUX)  is up on the day. Media better. Comcast (CMCSA)  up $1.70, an upside standout. Old tech is mixed. International Business Machines (IBM) weaker (after being strong yesterday) and Microsoft (MSFT) an upside leader. Ag equipment down hard the second day in a row. I have been adding to my Caterpillar (CAT) short (down $0.80). Deere (DE)  down $1.25. (T)FANG is mixed with Tesla (TSLA) lower (down $4.50 on my Best Ideas List, short) and Alphabet (GOOGL) up double digits. Amazon (
The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.23 to $47.29 on conflicting OPEC reports. Gold climbed by about $12 per ounce to above $1,190 (it had been up $18 earlier). Agricultural commodities were mixed: Wheat down $0.02, corn flat, soybean up $0.12 (continuing its monster run in price) and oats down $0.06. Lumber up $3. Bonds were lower in yield and higher in price. The 10-year yield dropped by five basis points and the long bond by three basis points. The 2s/10s spread declined by three basis points as the yield curve flattened. Municipals flat-lined. Closed-end muni-bond funds recovered a bit. Junk bonds slightly higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fun (BGB) was flat. Banks got clipped. But brokerages were slightly higher. Insurance profit-taking after a big run. Retail was on sale with Nordstrom (JWN) , Home Depot (HD) , Best Buy (BBY) , Target (TGT) and JC Penney (JCP) weak. Autos lower. According to J.D. Power, incentives are at near-record levels. Not good for profits/margins. Biotech down 1.5% (Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) off a beaner each), but spec biotech (e.g. Intrexon (XON) , Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA)  , SAGE (SAGE)  , Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) ) weak. Big pharma continues to weaken, led by Merck (MRK)  , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY)  , Eli Lilly (LLY)
