Today's Good, Bad and Ugly Real Money Pro($)

Market continues to churn at high levels. My fav large-cap long, DuPont (DD) , hit another new 2016 high. Netflix (NFLX) , a small short, is trading higher -- seems technically based. Valeant's (VRX) run-up continues. Pershing's Bill Ackman is having a good August in the Hamptons. Banks continue their slow move higher after a nice advance over the last few months. The Bad Apple (AAPL) , short calls of which are my Trade of the Week, continues to falter.  Autos, led by General Motors (GM) , are generally lower The Ugly Pharma --
The U.S. dollar is stronger. The price of crude oil fell by $1.33 to $46.77. Gold slipped by $17 to $1,329 and appears likely to threaten support at $1,300 to $1,310. Agricultural commodities. wheat -2, corn -1.5, soybean -9, oats flat. Lumber -7 on weak housing data. Bonds are down small. The 10- and 30-year note and bond yields are unchanged. So was the 2s/10s spread (80 basis points). Municipals and junk flat lined, as did Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) and closed-end muni bond funds. Banks remain the world's fair.: Brokerages are holding in well. Same goes for insurance, but my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) is a laggard. Biotech down by about 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG) are leaders to the downside, with speculative biotech taken to the woodshed, too. Profit-taking continues in retail. Autos are mixed. Energy stocks nonplussed by oil's descent, thus far. Old tech is mixed, but IBM (IBM) is a downside feature. Media is down small. Ag equipment is weaker (I dissed CAT this morning, added to my short) Staples are lower on a stronger currency. In individual stocks, my longs Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) are doing God's work! Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) is trading better, but it is an odd stock and it's mostly difficult to understand its daily moves. (T)FANG all lower, but not materially. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on oil and the little guy.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins sees Babe Ruth -- i.e., Facebook (FB) -- striking out.  Skip Raschke on frowning (and shorting). Rev Shark is waiting for Godot.  Roger Arnold on a rate rise by the Fed (Fischer-style). 
The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by about 65 cents to over $48 a barrel. Gold flat-lined. Ag commodities were schemissburger: wheat -7.5, corn -5, soybean -3.5 and oats -2. Lumber +1. Bond prices and yields were unchanged. The 2s/10s spread moved one basis point to 80 basis points (it fell yesterday). Municipals were unchanged; same for closed-end muni bond funds. But the high yield bond market rallied, and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) moved up by 12 cents. Banks continue to hold on to large gains. Same for brokerages. On the other hand, insurance was mixed. Retail was the world's fair, led by Best Buy (BBY) , Nordstrom(JWN) , Home Depot (HD) and Nike (NKE) . Autos were flat. Energy stocks generally ignored higher crude prices. Ag equipment is still hot. Staples were mixed. Biotech flat-lined but there was movement within the group. Old tech was nada. (T)FANG was better, led by Tesla (TSLA) and Netflix (NFLX) . Here are some valuable contributions on our site that were worth mentioning: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on what we learned from last year's Eve of Destruction.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on his intrigue with gold now.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross goes all Tina Turner on us.  "Retail" Ben Sozzi writes not to buy Best Buy's hype. Tom Graff is on Yellen watch.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose again by more than $1 to $44.53. Gold fell by $9 to $1,341. Agricultural commodities were volatile: wheat +6, corn +2, soybean -1 and oats -1. Lumber +1.50 after yesterday's sharp fall. Bonds reversed yesterday's losses, and I lost on my short bond trade/investment! Yields on the 10-year and long bond fell by five basis points. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) gained more than a beaner. The 2s/10s spread flattened a bit to nearly 80 basis points. Municipals were well-bid, and closed-end muni funds were better. Junk bonds were up modestly. Banks had a second weak day in a row. Insurers and brokerages also were lower as yields fell. Energy stocks rallied. Auto stocks were lower. Ag equipment faded. Retail continued to sparkle, led by Nordstrom (JWN) (small short), Target (TGT) and Foot Locker (FL) (small short). Old tech was moribund. Biotech flat lined. Media was conspicuously lower. Staples were non-descript. Is (T)FANG getting tired? In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) was down nearly 2% on a European Union "in depth" review of the planned DuPont/Dow (DOW) merger, which could also jeopardize Bayer's quest for Monsanto (MON) . Sanford Bernstein is concerned. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, like Chauncey Gardiner, is watching. And he also opines on Twitter's "point of intent."  Mark "Summer in the City" Sebastain on volatility.  Eric Jackson on comparing Amazon AMZN (then) to Tesla TSLA (now). Strong analysis!  Guy Ortmann on valuations.  Tom Graff on retail sales and the Fed.  Enjoy the weekend!
DuPont (DD) : $65 or lower. Hartford Financial (HIG)

Today's Good, Bad and Ugly Real Money Pro($)

Biotech is dancing off of the stock screen, especially the more speculative merchandise. In large cap bio, Celgene (CELG) remains an upside standout. I don't have a dog in the hunt. Apple (AAPL) is still recovering from the earnings report date last week. I will give the stock some leeway before adding to my short. Walmart (WMT) is the world's fair. Amazon's (AMZN) streak is intact, as is Alphabet's (GOOGL) . This is contributing to continued strength of QQQs over SSSs. Twitter (TWTR) -- arguably the world's most hated stock these days -- continues to climb, albeit slowly. I have recently added post-earnings. My favorite large-cap, DuPont (DD) , holds up well and seems to have a mission to reach $70. I will have an update in the next few days. The Bad Bonds are the day's lows. I continue to see a generational bottom in yields, as noted a few weeks ago when the 10-year U.S. note yield breached 1.35%. Energy stocks are finally catching up to the drop in crude oil prices. I don't find en

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar was weaker. Crude oil dropped by nearly $1 to $41.10. The causality between energy prices and junk bonds and equities have disconnected recently. Gold rose by $7 to $1,333. Agricultural commodities: wheat -3, corn -3, soybeans -7. Lumber -3. Bonds were weaker despite poor economic data and a downbeat Atlanta Fed GDP forecast. I believe that the fixed-income market is discounting a recession. The 10-year U.S. note lost one basis point in yield to 1.50% and the long bond was flat, yielding 2.22%. The 2s/10s spread was relatively flat at 79 basis points. Municipals were up small. Closed-end muni bond funds were mixed. Junk bonds acted junky. Banks and insurance stocks were mixed and brokerages were lower. Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) was up eight cents -- a new (small) short based on the flattening in the yield curve and the prospects for deteriorating domestic economic growth. Autos were lower on Ford's negative guidance and outlook. Oil stocks weakened off of crude oil's continued dive. Retail stocks, save Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's(LOW) (which were stronger), faltered. Agricultural equipment gave back recent gains; I missed shorting Caterpillar (CAT) (which I wanted to execute) but was not around this morning. Media was lower, and was old tech. Staples picked up a bid after recent weakness. Biotech was flat after spirited action yesterday. (T)FANG featured big rips by GOOGL and AMZN after the close and post earnings. In individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) continued to gain (up $1.50) and DuPont (DD) might have an appointment with $70a share. Here are some value added contributions on our site today:: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on Ford and peak autos. Thanks for the shout-out, Jimmy!  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross on the Federal Open Market Committee, gold, aluminum and Ford.  Big Jim Gentile on autos -- fuhgetabout 'em!  RevShark on the prospects for a market breakout. The Divine Ms M on the subsurface "action."
