Looking to Buy More DuPont Real Money Pro($)

I'm a buyer of DuPont (DD) between $60 to $61.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The market did its best to wear out the bears. Opening lower, Mr. Market had a rather violent move to the upside (a reversal of about 20 S&P handles). It closed the day back almost where it started. The U.S. dollar was slightly weaker. Bonds flatlined. The 10-year yield rose by two basis points and the long bond was unchanged. Municipals were dead flat and so were closed-end municipal bond funds. The junk bond market was up marginally, but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) got hit for six cents after a reasonably good run. Crude oil was an upside feature, gaining $1.97 to $37.89 even though some sage advisers said it would never rise above $40 a barrel for years. Nat gas increased by three cents. Gold fell by $2 to $1,268. Agricultural commodities exhibited little movement in price, with soybeans, corn and wheat barely moving. Oats were up 5.25. Lumber was up $7.70. Financials were little changed to down. Banks were a bit lower, as were brokerages. Retail was quite strong. Wal-Mart (WMT), Best Buy (BBY) and Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY), which I sold in the a.m., were all up substantially. Biotech was up 2%, led by Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX). But Allergan (AGN) was down $2. Old tech was led by IBM (IBM), up $2, but Microsoft (MSFT) was down $1.30 after recent strong gains. Airlines got pressured by crude's price rise. Autos were mixed, with Ford (F) higher and General Motors (GM) lower. I am short both! Consumer staples got hit and are extended. Best Ideas List long Procter & Gamble (PG) was down by 30 cents.  My previously owned Biotech Basket prospered, led by Intrexon (XON), which was featured in a Saturday New York Times article. Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR), Sage Therapeutics (SAGE), Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA), Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) all were higher. Energy stocks followed the price of crude. Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up $1.75 and Schlumberger (SLB) rose 90 cents. (T)FANGs lost their bite today.  NOSH was broadly lower, with Nike (NKE) and Starbucks (SBUX) leading lower. CRABBY's six components were all down on the day. DuPont (DD), my large-cap stock of the year, was higher but Dow Chemical (DOW) was lower as BASF expressed takeover interest in DD. I will have more on this tomorrow. I am holding to my position. Good stuff on RealMoneyPro today: 1.
