Cisco Has An Ugly Breakdown Real Money Pro($)

Stock is taking out key near-term support, indicating a healthy pullback is about to begin.
If and when interest rates go up, this basket of stocks should continue to do well.

Thursday's Takeaways Real Money Pro($)

The US Dollar weakened. The price of crude oil gapped nearly $2 per barrel higher to $47.42. Stocks continued to decouple and a trend of disassociation between stocks and energy product prices might be in place. Gold down $7.70 after the big climb yesterday, closing at $1341. Agricultural commodities prices muted today. Wheat was up $3, corn gained $5, soybeans rose $1 and oats gained $3. Lumber flatlined. Bonds had a dramatic move, breaking out of their recent yield range. The yield curve steepened. (See comments above.) Municipals and junk bonds were for sale. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) down a few pennies and closed-end muni bond funds hit with modest profit taking. Banks were slight higher. The media was a bit hyperbolic in their characterization of financial strength. I was actually disappointed given the weakness in bond prices. I remain short the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF)  The same observation applies to brokerages and insurance. Auto stocks lower, led by Trade of the Week GM (GM) (short) to a weekly low and now nearly 2% to the good from Tuesday. Old tech weak, led by IBM (IBM) and Cisco (CSCO) . Energy stocks responded well to higher crude. I remain short Sclumberger (SLB) and ExxonMobil (XOM) , small. Biotech was uninspiring despite a better day at Allergan (AGN) (which made a promise to hold back drug prices). Retail was a downside feature, as I highlighted in my Diary. Ag equipment lower. (T)FANG looks a bit weary -- especially of a Tesla (TSLA) kind (brokerage downgrade) on my Best Ideas List. (-$4) TSLA needs to raise capital (a constant theme of mine). Helps to explain the brokerage community's love for the shares despite the inexplicable valuation. It's a fee-generator for investment bankers! Starbucks (SBUX) closed at day's low (off by more than a beaner) and Radian (RDN) at a new high (above $14, +40% in two months). Apple (AAPL) went sour (by almost $3) Hartford (HIG)  -- after an outsized rise yesterday -- got hit today. DuPont (DD) DuLlovely. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" says stay calm on Apache. Ben Cross on the double-play combination of Draghi and Yellen  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on TBT (Note: Be careful of leveraged ETFs like TBT -- poor tracking and premium decay) Sham Gad on CMG -- "it will take time."  He makes some very good points. James Passeri analyzes the possible collateral damage done by Tractor Supply, Home Depot and others.  
There are two big factors that could still push the Fed to raise rates this month.
Fiber-optics maker's shares are up some 270% since May's IPO.
CEO Benioff has earned being taken at face value.
