My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.67 to $48 a barrel. Gold dropped by $10 to $1,314. Agricultural commodities: wheat -2, corn unchanged, soybean +15, oats +2.50. Lumber +10.00. Bonds were flattish. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up 29 cents, likely buoyed by terrorism in Turkey (see above). The 10-year yield was unchanged at 1.46% and the long bond also flat on yield at 2.27%. Non-taxables were flat and closed-end muni bond funds were pennies higher. The high-yield bond market was higher, reversing yesterday's large losses. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up $1.03 and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 44 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB), down 20 cents yesterday, recaptured 16 cents today. Banks were the "world's fair" and were market leaders with gains of 3% to 4%. I purchased positions (long rentals) on Monday in Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM). Insurance stocks were upside features after they were decimated by nearly 20% in the last two days. My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) rose by over a beaner. Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) also were up $1, which, considering the magnitude of the previous decline, was quite disappointing. I covered much of my life shorts on Monday. Brokerages flourished. I purchased Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) on Monday, and today they were up $3 and $1, respectively. Retail was mixed. Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) led, but NKE and FL were down after the NKE miss. My short Nordstrom (JWN) was up $1. Auto stocks underperformed. I had covered a lot yesterday. Energy was responsive to higher crude oil prices. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $1.60 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) rose $2.20. Both shorts were covered yesterday. Old tech was strong, led by IBM (IBM) and Microsoft (MSFT). Biotech went from goat to hero. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) climbed $9, led by Allergan (AGN), which was up $10. A dead-cat bounce for Valeant (VRX), which was up $1.40. Speculative biotech also moved higher. Agricultural equipment was stronger, led by dollar gains at Caterpillar (CAT) and Deere (DE). Media was up. I covered Comcast (CMCSA) yesterday. Disney (DIS) rose $1.65. (T)FANG attracted buyers, with Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) strong. Netflix (NFLX) rose 4%. In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) was under pressure and fell $1.33, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) gained fractionally and Twitter (TWTR) was up a half a buck or so. In sectors, Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) and Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) were underperformers. I covered them recently. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on more than FANG.  Ben "Godlfinger" Cross on, what else? Gold!   RevShark on Da Bulls and Da Bears. Rev is uncertain about today's implications, and I respect his honesty!  Shad Gad "And the Pharoahs" is patient in an impatient market.  Tom Graff on bonds.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar was stronger, a negative of Brexit. The price of crude oil fell by less than a dollar to $46.74, off of the day's lows (see comments on TBT). Gold rose by $7.50, off the day's highs. Agricultural commodities: wheat -8, corn +1, soybean +28 (!!) and oats -5. Lumber was unchanged. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) rose by $3.50 as yields plummeted and prices rose. (I shorted in the morning by purchasing TBT. The 10-year's yield fell 12 basis points and the long bond was down 14 basis points. The yield curve flattened to lows last seen in the recession. The 2s/10s spread fell to 86 basis points. The high-yield bond market got destroyed. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) fell $1.23 and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was down 60 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) fell by an outsize 25 cents and closed at $14. I would continue to avoid this space. Banks were schmeissed and I picked some rentals -- Morgan Stanley (MS), Goldman Sachs (GS), Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM). Insurance was down another 8% to 10%, following Friday's decline of 12% to 15%. I covered more Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET); they are now small positions. It has been the world's fair on the short side. Energy got hit. I covered Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) today. Retail was broadly lower. I have no longs. My two shorts were lower -- Nordstrom (JWN) down $1.20 and Foot Locker (FL) down $1.50. Continued nice gains. Old tech fell, with IBM (IBM) down $3 and Intel (INTC), Cisco (CSCO) and Microsoft (MSFT) were down one side or the other of 2%. Biotech was a biowreck. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down another $8 to $241;  I cautioned on the sector at $285 a few weeks ago when some were talking "breakout." Ag equipment with a disproportionate position in England and the EU was lower. Autos, too, got hurt by Brexit's fumes. *(T) FANG was mixed, with Tesla (TSLA) up $4.50 and weakness in the rest of the abbreviation. In individual stocks, DuPont (DD), my fav long, was down $2.40 as it consolidates a multi-month advance. Potash (POT) was down $1, Twitter (TWTR) off 70 cents, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) down $1.40 and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) off $1.20. I plan to add to TWTR, HIG and OAK tomorrow. Apple (AAPL) moves back down toward $92. In sectors, Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) slipped a bit (I covered and took it off my Best Ideas List today) and Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) got schmeissed (down $1.55) as cyclicals were quite weak. Here are some value-added columns on our site today: El Capitan is tempted.  General Motors (GM) is moving toward support, according to Gary Morrow's chart view. I covered much of my short today. Tim Melvin is keeping his head.  Rev will be reactionary and sees no reason to rush into the markets. Brian Sozzi on what Nike (NKE) has to show; I remain short sneakers via FL.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. Oil rose by 97 cents to more than $50 a barrel. Gold fell by $10 and closed at $1,260. Again, the $1,300 level has proven to be a formidable resistance point. Agricultural commodities continued for the second day in a row to be under pressure: wheat -4, corn -5.5, soybean -14 and oats unchanged. Lumber +2.50. Bonds fell in price and rose in yield, with the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down $1.50. The 10-year U.S. note yield increased by nearly six basis points to 1.745%.The long bond's yield also climbed by nearly six basis points to 2.55%. The 2s/10s spread expanded by two basis points to 96 basis points. Municipals got hit and closed-end muni bond funds were lower in price. However, the high-yield bond market was strong, with iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 62 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 26 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by nine cents to $14.46 a share. Banks gapped higher, as rates rose. Stress test results shortly. Brokerages were strong. Insurance stocks rose, with large gains in Lincoln National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was up $1. Retail was broadly higher but marginally so. My two shorts underperformed; Foot Locker (FL) was lower and Nordstrom (JWN) was up only slightly. Old tech was stronger, with IBM (IBM) up $2.50. Auto stocks rose after being weak for several trading day. Energy stocks followed the commodity higher. Ag equipment was strong, led by a $1.80 gain for Caterpillar (CAT). Media underperformed with small (pennies) gains at Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS). (T)FANG rallied from morning weakness. Amazon (AMZN) led the parade, but Tesla (TSLA) remains under pressure. In individual stocks, Potash (POT) gained a beaner and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) and HIG almost did as well. Twitter (TWTR), a recent buy, closed over $17 a share and now is up more than 15% from my buy about a week ago. My fav large-cap, DuPont (DD), was up $1.20 and looks like it has a mission to reach $70 a share. Here are some value-added contributions on our site: Jim "El Capitan" goes beyond Brexit.  Mark Sebastian also chimes in on Brexit.  Carley Garner on gold.  Rev Shark on Friday's "action." 
I've added to my longs of Hartford Financial (HIG) and Twitter (TWTR) this morning.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. Crude oil climbed to $49.20, up $1.23. Gold slipped by three dollars to $1,291. Agricultural commodities got schmeissed: wheat -7, corn -17, soybean -12 and oats unchanged. Lumber +2. Bonds were hit as the flight to safety dissipated. The yield on the 10-year note rose by five basis points to 1.666% (yikes!) and the long bond increased by an equivalent amount to a 2.47% yield. The 2s/10s spread steepened a bit to 93 basis points. Municipals sold off and so did closed-end muni bond funds. High yield was stronger. Bank stocks prospered, but were well off their early-morning highs. As I mentioned, C is trading under $43 a share after trading over $44. Bank of America (BAC) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) gains "twittered" away. Insurance stocks rallied, but like banks, were lower than the a.m. levels. Brokerages were better, but they, too, were well off their highs. Retail showed small gains. FL, my short, was up $1 earlier in the day but closed just seven cents higher than Friday's close. Nordstrom (JWN) was up only two bits after some horrible underperformance. Biotech rallied after recent weakness, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) up $2.30. Energy stocks were higher, but only modestly so -- a continuing theme of the day. Old tech was mixed, with IBM (IBM) $1.60 higher leading the upside. (T)FANG was strong, led by Alphabet (GOOGL), Tesla (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN). NFLX was lower on the NYT article I mentioned. Agricultural equipment traded higher despite CAT's 42nd consecutive month of lower dealer retail sales. Media was mixed. In individual stocks, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) and TWTR rose. So did long fav DuPont (DD), but all were only marginally higher after better gains earlier. Apple (AAPL) was a clear underperformer, flat on the day. In sectors, Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) and Material Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) were a tad higher. Here is some value-added commentary on the site: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on a new oil-inspired dynamic in the marketplace.  Jeremy LaKosh on changing inflation expectations. I will be addressing this subject during the week. "Meet" Brett Jensen And "His Son Elroy" on three biotech opportunities.  Rev Shark wants to exit the Brexit chatter .  Sham "The" Gad "And the Pharoahs" on spin-off opportunities. Wooly bully!
I'm currently long on just four individual stocks: DuPont (DD), Hartford Financial (HIG), Oaktree Capital (OAK) and Twitter (TWTR).
The U.S. dollar was quite strong today. Crude oil got whacked,down by nearly $2 to $46.20. Gold gained $2 at $1,290 but was well off day's highs. SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) was down $1.26. Agricultural commodities mostly were lower: wheat -4, corn -4, soybean -22(!) and oats flat. Lumber was up $4. Bonds continued a spirited rally, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up 66 cents. The yield on the 10-year dropped by three basis points to 1.565% and the long bond by four basis points to 2.38%. The 2s/10s spread was down to 89 basis points for a new multiyear low. Municipals were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds were smartly higher. The high-yield market was stagnant, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was down an outsize 10 cents. Banks were mixed. The ETF, which I covered in the morning, rose substantially from the lows and was up more than a nickel on the day. Brokerages had no bounce despite the recent declines. Insurance also was mixed. Berkshire (BRK.B) rose a beaner. Retail stocks were mixed. My short Foot Locker (FL), which deals in sneakers, was down by almost $1. Energy stocks were divided. Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up $1 but Schlumberger (SLB) was down half a buck. Biotech continued to lag, as I suggested a few weeks ago when I dumped the group holdings. Allergan (AGN) was weak, and Valeant (VRX) was at a new low. Autos were up marginally. Old tech was nothing. Media and ag equipment were mixed. Consumer staples were higher, not mindful of the dollar's strength. Though my sole short, Coca-Cola (KO), rose 30 cents. TFANG underperformed the broader market as Facebook (FB) continues to breakdown following Citron Research's negative research report earlier in the week. Trade of the Week Twitter (TWTR) gave up a dime after two good days. It's up 9% from Monday's purchase. (I added on today's weakness earlier.) In individual stocks, long fav DuPont (DD) rallied back a beaner, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was down small and Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) finished with a nice gain of half a buck (I added today). In country ETFs, iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU) was up 0.5% and iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) was flat. In sector ETFs, Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (XLP) and Materials Select Sector SPDR (XLB) were up small. Here are some good contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on a showdown on Brexit and oil.   Eric Jackson on Viacom (VIAB).  Mike Norman is buying.  James Passeri on Valeant.  Tin "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on Dow Chemical (DOW). 

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened today against the euro. Crude oil was down 50 cents to $48.40. Gold was up a beaner to $1,288. Agricultural commodities were mixed: wheat -4.50, corn +6.50, soybean flat, and oats +1. Lumber -5.25. Bonds were flat after a sharp rise in the early going. The 10-year yield and long-bond yield are unchanged. The 2s/10s spread is flat at about 92 basis points. Municipals were higher in price and closed-end muni funds continued to glow. High yield (I am watching closely, see above) was down. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) might be breaking down; it was down 12 cents on the day to $14.55. If I held, I would sell. Banks are worrisome as I wrote, with losses of 2% to 3% for the money centers. I remain short Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF), which is working; it was down 34 cents, or nearly 1.5% lower. There were so many bank bulls on the recent rise; they have now disappeared and have been silenced. Again, stay independent in thought and mostly throw out the price followers who are trying to sell you something! Insurance was broadly lower. Life stocks Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) schmeissed,  but my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) is still outperforming the market and its peer group. I am watching this one closely. Brokerages were awful and rolling over. Retail was weak. My short Nordstrom (JWN) was down by $1; it's my only position in the space. Home Depot (HD) was off $2.50 and conspicuously on the downside. Autos are unsound and running out of gas as previously mentioned. Energy shares were lower, but not materially. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down nearly $2. There was no large individual security drops, but a broad-based decline. I have been out of the sector for almost two weeks now. Media was better, led by my short Disney (DIS), up 80-plus cents. Comcast (CMCSA) was up a quarter. Staples were stronger, hurting my Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) short, though it is small in size. Ag equipment was down fractionally. (T)FANG was mixed. Tesla (TSLA) saw profit taking. Netflix (NFLX) reversed from a good gain to a small profit. In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont (DD) suffering from profit taking; I am eyeing the low $60s to replace what I recently sold off. I'm still medium in size, though. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) continued to slide a bit today, but iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) was up a few pennies. I would short any strength. Sector exposure: XLP up, Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLB) down (more!). Here are some value-added columns on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on inspiration from Jay Leno.  Tim Melvin on funds with attractive yields.   Bobby Lang on volatility. (I will have more on the subject tomorrow.)  Jim Collins, Tim's illegitimate son, on the whacky bond market.  Roger Arnold on "The Paradox of Thrift" -- a frequent topic of mine.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened today. Crude oil dropped two bits to $48.85. Gold was up $10.50 to $1,287, making an assault back at the $1,300 resistance area. Agricultural commodities: wheat -3, corn +7, soybean flat and oats +3.50. Lumber -3.50. Bonds rallied for another day. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up 40 cents. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by two basis points to a record low 1.61%. The long bond dropped by one basis point to 2.44%. The 2s/10s spread was flat at 91 basis points. Municipals rose and closed-end municipal bond funds continued to rise. High-yield bonds were hit. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) fell by eight cents. Banks slipped and continue to show signs of rolling over. Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) was down 0.5%. I have been adding to the short. Insurance was mixed, but my only long, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), climbed by 50 cents.   Brokerages continue to underperform. Retail was mixed to lower. My short, Nordstrom (JWN), was a standout to the downside, off $1.10. Old tech was lower, led by IBM (IBM). Autos also were exhibiting signs of rolling over. Biotech continues its recent weakness, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) down 1%. Allergan (AGN) was up almost $3, but most others were lower. I have no interest in bottom fishing and the technical recovery mentioned by some appears to be not so much. Agricultural equipment was lower led by short Caterpillar (CAT). Media was mixed, though Disney (DIS) was stronger. Staples were weaker despite a lower U.S. currency -- my fav large-cap short Coca-Cola (KO) was down 45 cents. Energy stocks were mixed, with Exxon Mobil (XOM) up and Schlumberger (SLB) down. TFANG was quiet, though Facebook (FB) was down $3 on a Citron Research negative report. In selected individual securities, Monsanto (MON) and The Mighty Oak -- aka Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) -- were noticeably weaker. Alibaba (BABA) broke bad. My long fav DuPont (DD) was down by nearly a beaner. Country shorts iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) and iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU) were lower, going the right way for the manner in which I am positioned. Sector shorts Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (XLP) and Material Select Sector SPDR (XLB) - also are going in the right direction. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on natural gas elbowing out coal.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross on a possible breakout in the precious metal.  Tim Melvin on three bank stocks to avoid.  James Passeri on Valeant (VRX) and Walgreens (WBA).  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on a Facebook short.
