Thomson ONE CSCO - Cisco Systems Inc Annual Shareholders Meeting - 1PM
A Market Honeymoon: There is a precedent in the Ronald Reagan administration (I will discuss this further on Monday of an election-to-inauguration honeymoon that fizzles out badly and quickly.  "... it is important to remember that during the three-month period from the time Reagan was elected in November 1980 to his inauguration in January 1981, the market euphoria took the S&P Index 8.5% higher. However, the market fell dramatically from January 1981 through August 1982, declining by 28% from the 1980 election and by 20% from the 1981 inauguration." --Kass Diary, "Donald Trump, You're No Ronald Reagan (Part One)"  An Untested President: Regardless of one's political affiliation, it can be argued that, as a leader, Donald Trump is untested. His ability to execute far-reaching, complex and cohesive policy remains in question, particularly in a backdrop of deep-rooted animus between the Republican and Democratic parties. Monetary

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S dollar was quite strong. This will likely pressure multinational company profits. The price of crude oil rose by $1.05 to nearly $51 a barrel. Gold fell by $5 to $1,172.* Ag commodities: wheat down $0.08, corn down $0.04, soybeans $0.24, oats unchanged. Lumber down $6. Bonds pressured. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by over 5 basis points and the long bond by 7 basis points. (The Generational Bottom in yields appears quite safe). The 2s/10s spread widened by 5 basis points to 129 basis points -- a new high. Good for financials with an imbalance of rate sensitive assets over liabilities. Municipals fell after a strong day on Wednesday, and closed end muni funds were broadly lower. Junk bonds were little changed. (Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) down by $0.08 after recent strength.) Banks still the "world's fair." Insurance more of the same, higher. I added to HIG. Brokerages fab, led by Goldman Sachs (GS) , again. Retail was storng led by Urban Outfitters (URBN) , Kohl's (KSS) and Nordstrom's (JWN)  , JC Penney (JCP) inched higher. Old tech was mixed. I covered Cisco (CSCO) yesterday. Biotech was slightly higher but Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) were laggards. Big pharma can't get going. Consumer non-durables were lower. I added to CPB. Autos were flat after a sensational Wednesday. Media stronger, led by

FOMO ... or Something Else? Real Money Pro($)

The CBOE 10-day put/call has declined to below 0.90 -- a sign of extreme optimism. But in early summer the figure fell to close to 0.81. The 10-year U.S. note yield has moved 15 basis points lower from its 2.51% recent peak. A move below 2.3% might indicate that 2.5% was important resistance, and this could place pressure on bank stocks and selected financials, which slowed down a bit yesterday and underperformed. The five-week advance/decline intermediate momentum indicator has moved from oversold to overbought during the Trump rally.  On the other hand, we now have more than 420 new highs -- the highest reading in 23 months -- and a Dow Theory buy signal has been triggered with the transports following the industrials to new highs. Tactically, I took much of my index shorts off around midday as conviction was trumped -- pun intended -- by risk control and management. Fortunately, some of our core investment longs Radian Group (RDN) , DuPont (DD) , Campbell Soup (CPB) and JC Penney (JCP) (up 4% yesterday) moved to recent highs and a number of my trades (long iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) , short TLT puts, for example) panned out successfully, as have some important short positions been additive to performance, such as Apple (AAPL) , Starbucks (SBUX) , the autos (which I covered yesterday) and Coca-Cola (KO) (which has been reduced) , as well as some short-term rentals such as short Cisco (CSCO) , which was covered this week. Bottom Line
I have covered today's bank shorts -- for a small loss.   I have had an excellent 2016 and since I can't explain today's gain .... …
