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
I try through rigorous analysis to identify sectors and companies with intermediate-term prospects that are deteriorating relative to consensus expectations, isolating those areas and corporations with secular growth prospects that are reduced by a changing business landscape. Examples of stocks that I am short that may fit this description include Disney (DIS) , Coca-Cola (KO) and Apple (AAPL) . But this morning I want to look at current and possible shorts -- a shopping list, so to speak -- by iden
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)

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Real Money Pro($)

The market remains resistant (Rs over Ss and Ns). Brokerages, banks and insurance companies continue their league-leading strength. The Russell 2000 Index is up for the 15th consecutive day. Retail extends yesterday's strength. Nordstrom (JWN) Macy's (M) Best Buy (BBY) Target (TGT) Walmart (WMT) Foot Locker (FL) and JC Penney (
The market remains resistant. Brokerages and banks hang in strongly. The Russell Index is killing the shorts -- up ($0.75), again. Retail is experiencing another leg to the upside. JC Penney (JCP) , Home Depot (HD) , Lowe's (LOW) , Best Buy (BBY) , Target (TGT
Hewlett Packard Enterprise to report today; a miss could get ugly.
The U.S. dollar is flat today. The price of crude oil rallied smartly -- by nearly $2/barrel to $47.60. The price of gold was listless, up a beaner. Agricultural commodities: wheat up $0.02, corn up $0.03, soybeans up $0.24 (!!), oats down $0.04. Lumber is flat. For a change, bonds are quiet. The yield on both the 10-year note and long bonds showed little price change. As mentioned earlier the 2w/10s narrowed by 3 basis points. Municipals were a bit lower. Junk bonds found a bid, however, and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  was up $0.06. Banks continued to trade well, small gains on top of large gains over the last month. Insurance very strong, though brokerages had some modest profit taking. Retail was mixed -- Home Depot (HD) and Nordstrom (JWN) lower while Foot Locker (FL) and Best Buy (BBY) were higher. JC Penney (JCP)  weaker. Oil stocks were the world's fair -- with broad-based gains. Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) ++. Autos lackluster, still underperforming ... down to tagends in General Motors (GM) and Ford 
Options indicate a $11 per share move in either direction after tonight's report.
Thursday's decline only took the stock back to the base of its recent range.
