My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

I have a series of meetings this afternoon and tomorrow morning so I want to get "Takeaways" out early today.

Reviewing My Investment Troops Real Money Pro($)

* Allergan (AGN) (my fav large-cap long for 2017) remains the "world's fair" and market leader. Now up $25 a share above my initial purchase price.

Reviewing My Investment Troops Real Money Pro($)

Allergan (AGN) (updated earlier ) up by another six beaners (that's up $6 to those that understand my slang) to over $221.80. This favorite large-cap stock for 2017 was put on my Best Ideas List (only recently) in late December at $194.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by about $0.75 to over $53 a barrel. Gold rose by $1.70. Ag commodities strengthened: wheat up $0.11, corn up $0.04, soybeans up $0.19 and oats up $0.03. Lumber was flat. Bonds were flat with yields unchanged. The 2s/10s spread was flat. Municipals were bid for and closed-end muni-bond funds were slightly higher. Junk bonds rose in price and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a penny. Banks, after a slow start - made new highs for the day this afternoon. Insurance was up with Hartford Financial (HIG) rising 2%. Brokerages continue to step along -- albeit a lower pace of rise than usual! Old tech was led by short International Business Machines (IBM) (up $2.55). I plan to add to this position in the next few days. Biotech was strong -- up by nearly 3% with broad gains -- led by Gilead Sciences (GILD) and some speculative names which were particularly stronger. Big pharma was flat after yesterday's strong performance. Auto stocks responded to better industry sales for the month. Ag equipment a tale of two cities with my short, Caterpillar (CAT) , lower (I have added this week) but Deere (DE)  up $1.70. Consumer staples were slightly higher. Campbell Soup (CPB) a new high. Fertilizers continue to shine. Retail rebounded led by Home Depot (HD) , Nordstrom's (JWN) , Foot Locker (FL) , Nike (NKE) and Kohl's. J.C. Penney (JCP) lagged. I sold my trading rentals in Macy's and Kohl's today. (T)FANG was mixed with Alphabet (GOOGL) lower and Tesla (TSLA) stronger. In terms of individual names, DuPont (DD)  up, Radian (RDN) a new high and Oaktree Capital (OAK) catching up from recent weakness.  Here are some value-added contributions on our site: 1. A hard chargin' bull from Jim "El Capitan" Cramer. 2. Shad Gad " And The Pharoahs" reviews last year's picks.  3. Mike Norman believ
The U.S. dollar strengthened today, but closed well off the day's (spike) high. Oil vey! Crude down $1.46 after trading higher in the early going. Gold up $9. I like and added to my growing SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) long. I discussed my rationale in my Bloomberg interview. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.01, corn up $0.04, soybeans down $0.08 and oats up $0.07. Lumber down $2. Bonds got schmeissed early on with 9-basis-point rise in the 10-year but the gain declined to only 2 basis points by day's end. The yield on the 10-year closed at about 2.45% (up 2 basis points) and the long-bond yield rose by less than 1 basis point. Municipals were for sale, but closed-end muni-bond funds ripped. Not sure why ... maybe just a cessation of tax selling. Junk wasn't junky and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) climbed by another $0.11. Banks were stronger, but off day's highs. If there was ever a consensus view of a sector, banks are it! Insurance was relatively quiet. I added to my Lincoln National (LNC) and Metlife (MET) shorts -- liking the reward vs. risk now. And I recently added to my Hartford Financial (HIG) long. Brokerages higher but well off highs, Goldman Sachs (GS) dramatically so. Old tech was quiet. Retail was lower but has begun to creep up late in the day. Autos had a nice showing in light of Trump Twitter storm. Biotech strong led by Celgene (CELG) , Gilead Sciences (GILD) and my fav, Allergan. Merck (MCK) shorts were squeezed (up $8), but speculative biotech did little. Fertilizers flatlined as ag commodities were mixed. Consumer staples were mixed as the currency got stronger. Another up day for Campbell Soup (CPB) . Ag equipment up, with both Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) up a beaner. Shorted more Caterpillar as I favor upside/downside opportunity now. (T)FANG was very strong most of the day but is weakening as the day progresses. Alphabet (GOOGL)  up nicely. In individual stocks Oaktree Capital (OAK)  gained (maybe tax selling is over), DuPont (DD) holding well, along with Radian (RDN) . Apple (AAPL) didn't participate in the market rise.  Here are some value-added contributions on our site today:   1. Welcome back Jimmy! Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the hit and miss parade. 2. Tom Graff on navigating the bond market.  3. "Meet" Bret Jensen on
Favorite Large-Cap Long for 2017: Allergan (AGN) ($200.49)  Favorite Large-Cap Short for 2017: Caterpillar (CAT) ($94.55)
Mr. Market continues to follow through with strength that has been in place since the Trump victory. QQQs over Ss and Rs. QQQ is a Best Pick for 2017. Technology, the leader - (T)FANG strong (led by Tesla (TSLA) and Netflix (NFLX
The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil rose by two bits to almost $53 a barrel. Gold stunk up the joint, again, down by another $3 to $1,130. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.03, corn flat, sugar unchanged, soybeans down $0.12 and oats down $0.05. Lumber down $1. Bonds (on the short and long end rose by 1 basis point). The 2s/10s spread steepened by 2 basis points to 136 basis points, the widest spread since December a year ago. Municipals were offered. Junk was flat, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  up $0.02. Banks held in brilliantly. Insurance was lower, though long Hartford Financial (HIG) was flat. Brokerages down modestly. Autos stalled and the stocks may be breaking out again after a tepid rally recently. Retails were the disaster du jour as the economic data was unfriendly (income disappointing and spending up). Meanwhile, the threat of export tariffs loom for the sector. I added to Kohl's (KSS) , Macy's (M) and JC Penney (JCP) today. Old tech was indifferent. Pharma phlat. Biotech down 1% (but Celge

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened ever so slightly today. The price of oil faltered, dropping by $0.80 to $52.50/barrel. Gold flat-lined. I noticed that SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) has been liquidated nearly 30 days in a row as we move towards an extreme bearish sentiment reading. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.025, corn down $0.03, soybean up $0.02 and oats up $0.01. Lumber down $4. Bonds rallied in price and declined in yield. The 10-year note fell by 2 basis points to 2.55%, and the long bond dropped by 3 basis points. The 2s/10s spread climbed by a tick to 134 basis points. Municipals rose modestly and closed-end muni-bond funds were mixed to lower. Junk bonds were better bid and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) fell by 2 basis points. Banks were unchanged. Brokerages slightly lower (Goldman Sachs (GS) down $2). Insurance mixed. Long Hartford Financial (HIG)  , which rose by nearly 1%. Autos mostly idled. Old tech was generally lower. Energy stocks were a bit higher, even though the commodity price was lower. Big pharma continues to dog it, led by a decline in Merck (MRK) . Biotech lost what it made on Tuesday. Allergan (AGN) was an upside feature, but Celgene (CELG) faltered and spec biotech was lower. Consumer staples were mixed. Campbell Soup (CPB) made a new high on the move, though. Ag equipment was lower. I am close to building up my Caterpillar (CAT) short again after this week's poor monthly retail sales data. Retail headed lower, but long JC Penney (JCP)  , which was up all day (though well off the highs). New longs Macy's (M) and Kohl's (KSS) sold off slightly. Fertilizers are returning to their old behavior ... acting like excre
