Checking Out Some of My Longs Real Money Pro($)

Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) continued its leafy growth, spurting another $0.75 to $45.70 on Friday. The shares now have risen from about $37 near year-end. For those with a shorter time frame (of less than six to 12 months) some profit taking may be in order. Indeed, I likely will pare back a bit on strength at around current levels. As I have mentioned, it's hard for me to figure out The Mighty Oak's stock influences.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar is stronger today. Oil dropped by a half buck to $52.63. Gold added $6. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.06, corn down $0.04, soybeans down $0.27 (!!) and oats down $0.08. (Be careful fertilizer freaks! Me, no like.) Lumber down $3. Bonds were quiet with small gains in yield and a two basis point increase in the 2s/10s spread. Municipals were up small in price -- as were closed-end muni-bond funds. High yield was junky, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was unchanged. Banks got hit -- I explained further why I have a trading short in sector in my Diary today (and above). When the stocks went up every day, commentary was omnipresent in the business media. Now, crickets. Insurance schmeissed, though my long, Hartford Financial (HIG)  , was barely lower. Brokerages got hit, Goldman Sachs (GS) was a feature to the downside. Retail showed signs of life -- a good thing. Several up 1% to 2% in a down tape (Nordstrom (JWN) , Walmart (WMT) , Kohl's (KSS) and J.C. Penney (JCP) ). Sears looks Chapter 11. (See above.) Biotech down 1.5% led by long fav Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG) . Speculative biotech was particularly weak (FibroGen (FGEN) , Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) , Intrexon (XON) ). Autos were lower but divergence between Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) is terrific for my pairs trade which is "kicking into gear." Ag equipment schmeissed, including fav large-cap short for 2017, Caterpillar (CAT) . Fertilizers wounded (see my comments about ag commodities, above). Consumer staples were mixed to lower. Campbell Soup (CPB) was higher most of the day, but faded in the afternoon. Coca-Cola (KO) still has no fizz despite some technical support mentioned last week on ReaLMoneyPro. Media was mixed. Disney (DIS) up, Comcast (CMCSA) down. Homebuilders appeared to have had a false breakout about a week ago and are lower again after recent weakness in last few days. (T)FANG hit on immigration ban (Silicon Valley is among the most diverse areas of the country) -- all five down, led by Amazon (AMZN) , which declined $5. In individual stocks, normal profit taking in DuPont (DD) (I have been whittling down and now I am small-sized -- what a winner its been over last 14 months!) Radian (RDN) resisting the lower market. Apple down small in front of this week's earnings report. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: 1. Jim "El Capi
