Higher crude and strong earnings had a negligible effect last week.
The deal leaves Monsanto isolated in the battle for market share and development.
Days like this will make you think red is the new black.

DOW was upgraded from Outperform to Top Pick, RBC Capital said. $60 price target. Company is gaining market share and expanding margins...
I came in small-size short -- average cost of about $194 shorting SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) -- and ended the day at market-neutral exposure. Covered my short SPY from yesterday at reasonably good levels (see Columnist Conversations). It's not about the Benjamins, it's all about the quants.  A year of surprises lies ahead, 'cause baby it's cold outside.  Watch housing, because it could be the next shoe to drop.  The U.S. dollar weakened against the euro. Gold was unchanged. I'm working on a memo on the asset class. Silver down a nickel. Oil vey. Crude oil equals schmeissburger. Down by $1.60 a barrel. In agricultural commodities, wheat up a penny, corn up two cents, soybeans up a nickel and OJ futures up $2.50. Lumber up $8.50. Bonds were the world's fair, with most maturities down by 10 basis points between five and 30 years. The 10-year yield is back down to 1.85%. My advice? Refinance! I am. Nontaxables were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds followed their asset class higher. High yield acted like stocks, junky. Near the close, iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was down 55 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was down 30 cents. But no worse than yesterday. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) got hit for a few pennies after a solid three-day run. Peak autos, I tell ya. General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) down by 60 cents each. Both on my Best Ideas List.  Peak Ferrari.  Retail was hit after a good run. Consumer staples weakened despite a lower currency. Old tech was crippled; a broad-based decline with Microsoft (MSFT), Intel (INTC), IBM (IBM) and Cisco (CSCO) leading to the downside. Biotech gave back their recent gains, with primary and secondary stocks getting clipped. My spec Intrexon (XON) got punished. Banks give up all of Friday's gains. I've given my reasons for this performance. As well, there seem to be fears of a possible Sanders nod, which still seems an unlikely event. If he is the Democratic nominee, I would not be surprised to see Mike Bloomberg enter the fray. If Bloomberg did not enter, a Sanders Democratic presidential nominee likely improves the chances of a Republican presidential victory, which would be friendly to bank stocks. LIfe insurance stocks at new lows -- I gotta tell you my Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) shorts are killing it. But I am slowly adding to Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) against 'em. (T)FANG was a schmeissburgter, except stock du jour Alphabet (GOOGL). Tesla (TSLA) was down another $15 and Amazon (AMZN) another $23 and within $2 of my short cover from the other day. NOSH was broadly lower, led by O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and Home Depot (HD) to the downside. CRABBY was only slight lower, with Citigroup (C) and Allegheny (Y) down a large percentage on the day.  Radian Group (RDN) had another weak day, down a quarter of a beaner; I am still exploring under the hood Potash (POT) gave up the ghost after some stabilization. New Best Ideas long duPont (DD) had a breathtaking response to Dow Chemical's (DOW) earnings beat.   I am trading conservatively around the zero line becaus
Prices have bounced off the $40 level twice, which gives it some credibility as a support area.

In preparation for the DuPont-Dow Chemical merger, it seems a struggling DuPont can do little other than cut costs and wait.
