No Thanks a Latte Real Money Pro($)

Slowing U.S. sales and comps. Comps in SBUX's Americas segment slowed quarter over quarter to 50 basis points below their two-year average. Looking ahead, large comps (+4%) will also challenge forward sales. Moderating food sales. The contribution that food makes to comps is moderating, down to 16% in the latest period from a previous 20%. Food's contribution to aggregate comps also fell to 2% from an earlier 3%. Earnings quality. The quality of Starbucks' earnings is less than meets the eye. The company repurchased about $1.6 billion of shares in its latest quarter, or more than triple the amount from a year ago. Without the buyback, SBUX would have earned just $0.38 per share, falling below Wall Street consensus. A weakening global economy. SBUX investors' greatest fear should be the possibility of moderating global economic growth (or even a recession). If either of those happen, demand elasticity for the coffee chain's premium-priced products will face pressure. The bottom line: Slowing growth at a peak multiple seems to like a bitter combination for investors to swallow.
Late in the afternoon the market bent but did not break.
Stronger dollar could hurt.

Charts Warn to Look Out Below Real Money Pro($)

The trading of the last two sessions suggests topping action short term, setting us up for a drop.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil suffered, declining by $2 to $44.82. Agricultural commodities: wheat flat, corn +10, soybeans +18, oats +2. Gold up $9 to $1,344. Lumber +2. Bonds reverse yesterday's weakness. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up $1.60. The yield on the 10-year note dropped by nearly five basis points to 1.465%. The long bond's yield declined by six basis points to 2.17%. The 2s/10s spread stood at 80 basis points, flattening a bit. As I mentioned, while municipals rose small, closed-end muni bond funds got beaten down . Junk bonds declined. Banks suffered, but only modestly Brokerages were mixed. Insurance was lower on the lesser fixed-income yields. Auto stocks were flat. Energy stocks fell in line with the drop in commodity price. Old tech was slightly higher, though no large price movement. Biotech was disappointing for a second day in a row. Staples were stronger, again led by PepsiCo (PEP) . By contrast, my short Coca-Cola (KO) is dramatically underperforming PEP. Retail was weak, including my short Nordstrom (JWN) . Media lower, but small. Ag equipment was up on the day, as were fertilizers. Potash (POT) was up 4.5%. (T)FANG again was conspicuously weak. Tesla (TSLA) , Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) all were lower in a flat tape. Netflix NFLX, my short Trade of the Week, was up small. In individual stocks, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was down a beaner on no news, while DuPont (DD) and Radian Group (RDN) (last week's Trade of the Week) held recent gains well. Twitter (TWTR) was down small on profit taking. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Trix are for everyone, from Jim "El Capitan" Cramer  Jeremy LaKosh is in my camp, shorting Fastenal (FAST) . JK sees a $36 to $38 price target. I am lower!  RevShark on alternative approaches to trading -- he follows the "action." Mike Norman on inflation ahead.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened a tad. The price of crude oil rose by over $2 to $46.79. Gold fell by $22.70 to $1,333. The commodity broke out at $1,300, so support seems to be there. Agricultural commodities: wheat +6, corn +5, soybean +31 (!), oats flat. Lumber +3. Bonds schmeissed. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down $2.20. The yield on the 10-year rose by eight basis points to 1.51%. The long bond yield rose nine basis points to 2.23%. The 2s/10s rose to 84 basis points. Municipals were hit small, but closed-end funds got smashed. Several muni bond funds were down by more than 2%. High yield was stronger, despite the decline in the taxable fixed-income market. Banks continued higher. So did brokerages and insurance, led by Goldman Sachs (GS) , up $5, and Lincoln National (LNC) , up $1.85.. Retail was mixed, led by Nike (NKE) to the upside and Home Depot (HD) and Walmart (WMT) to the downside Biotech disappointed. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up only $1.50. After the close Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA) raised guidance. Autos continued strong down the track. I covered most of my auto shorts in the Brexit period and I am close to re-shorting on the recent strength. Peak autos, I say, again. Ag equipment, which was sold on the rumor of a big crop, was bought on that news today. Staples did little. Old tech was broadly higher, with IBM (IBM) leading to the upside. Media was weak, with Disney (DIS) barely up and Comcast (CMCSA) (recently covered) lower. (T)FANG was disappointing. Telsa (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN) were lower. Trade of the Week, short Netflix (NFLX) , was up a beaner. In individual stocks, DD was the world's fair (now up $5 from my incremental buy last week) as was Radian Group (RDN) , up another 4% and now up 18% since last week's inclusion as Trade of the Week. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was flat, and so was Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) (disappointing, considering its insurance peers' strength). Starbucks (SBUX) , a short, hurt me (up $1.10). Another short, Apple (AAPL) , was up a large fraction. Here are some fine and value-added contributions from our peeps today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer really likes Alcoa (AA) , and because of it I am doing more serious work on this name now.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins takes a non-consensus view on Delta Air Lines (DAL) ; I like this piece.  Tom Graff on what would it take for rates to rise.  Say it ain't so -- Ben "Goldfinger" Cross says gold is looking wobbly. Honest and flexible, Ben, in his approach to the precious commodity.  Tony Owusu takes a look at Amazon's Prime Day.   

DuPont Is DuRallying Real Money Pro($)

DuPont (DD) is up some 2.8% today and some 8% higher than where we bought it last week.
I used the post-Brexit weakness to buy additional shares of DuPont (DD) , Hartford Financial (HIG) , Radian (RDN) and Twitter (TWTR) , but I wouldn't chase any of them from here.

Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

I added to my long of Radian (RDN) and my shorts of Apple (AAPL) and Foot Locker (FL) . I also increased my bond-market short and went back into SPY puts. Our Trade of the Week this week is to short Netflix (NFLX) at $96.50. Click here and here to see why.  In other market action: The U.S. dollar is weaker. Oil was down nearly another beaner, continuing last week's weakness (which represented crude's worse performance since February). For now, stock bulls are ignoring this. Gold was down $3 to $1,355 at last check. Agricultural commodities were mixed, with wheat -5.50, corn -6, soybeans and -1, but oats +3. Lumber is ending roughly +5.50. Bonds are seeing profit taking. The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down $1.30 at last check. The 10-year Treasury yield is up seven basis points to 1.44% as I write this. The long bond is at 2.15%, up five basis points. The two-year/10-year Treasury spread is unchanged at 78 basis points. Municipals sold off today, but closed-end muni funds held up well. High-yield bonds traded better. The iShares iBoxx U.S. Dollar High Yield C

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar is stronger. Crude oil is breaking down, off $2 to $45.35. Smaller draw of supplies is the reason. Gold is down by $6 to $1,361. Bonds are flat. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note is unchanged while the long bond is down one basis point. The 2s/10s spread is unchanged at 80 basis points. Municipals and high yield are flat. Closed-end municipal bond funds continue to climb in price. Banks are solid, but are off the highs modestly. Brokerages are up a bit. Life insurance is terrible; no bounce after a sustained drop. Retail is lower, with my short Foot Locker (FL) down, though my other short Nordstrom (JWN) is higher. Old tech is quiet. Energy stocks are getting hit. I covered too early a week ago! Biotech is down a tad. Auto stocks are up modestly after their schmeisssing. Staples are down small save for PepsiCo (PEP) on an earnings beat. Media and ag equipment are doing nada. (T)FANG is mixed. Nothing special there. In individual stocks, TWTR, DD, RDN and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) are up modestly. Apple (AAPL) is up two bits but still looks weak. Same for Starbucks (SBUX). Here are some value-added columns from our hard-working contributors: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, who is probably deeply ensconced in his garden on Long Island, writes about Amazon's (AMZN) all-time high. Jim observes that this is occurring while retail is not folding. But retail has already been a land mine, so I am not sure whether the non-Amazon retail space is safe to invest in yet. "Meet" Bret Jensen on five stocks for the second half.  Roger Arnold on conflicting economic narratives. "Stormin'" Mike Norman sees a pullback in gold.  Chris Laudani on overvalued staples. This was also a theme of mine back in late May.
