The End of a Nasty Day Is Near Real Money Pro($)

The market is not getting any better as we approach the last hour-plus of trading. 

Stocks Look a Little Better Real Money Pro($)

Markets have gotten a bit better since my last update, and I found one interesting, positive tidbit in this morning's jobs report.
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
Charts say FB is close to a sell, while AAPL is approaching a buy.
Now may be the time for value and income investors to take notice.

Peak Autos (Part Trois) Real Money Pro($)

Fourth-quarter earnings from Ford (F) beat analyst expectations this morning, but I remain short on the stock.
A day full of sound and fury but perhaps signifying nothing. As I expected, the Fed acknowledged tightening financial conditions in the credit markets. Spreads have widened and the cost of debt and capital has risen. Here's my Fed analysis  and my strategy.  I viewed the strength in oil, in bank stocks and in credit (high yield) as providing hope and encouragement to me. I remain upbeat. I view the selloff today as an opportunity; I added to Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), Comerica (CMA), Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC) and others. I had a damn love fest with RevShark today! Not surprisingly, stocks sold off and RevShark's correction prediction came to be. Here is what I wrote to Rev in Columnist Conversation: "I believe the obvious and consensus trade is to sell as the markets have ripped from Wednesday's lows -- of course there is a lot of space between then and now. But I am making what I believe to be the less obvious and contrary trade -- and I am buying. I believe markets will be relieved and that many are "offsides" for a further market advance. The beauty here is that you and I employ a level of transparently in our real-time trades, exercising our beliefs and show our analysis that yields our conclusions. Either outcome, I like -- and I hope is helpful to our subs." Where was the Divine Ms. M today when I needed her? On the other hand, I don't even know how to respond to Roger Arnold's over-the-top column on a "failing" Bank of America!!!!?!?!?!   But I shall remain respectful. From Columnist Conversations: "I intended to respond to your BAC column but it's been a hectic day and I didn't get the chance. I am diametrically opposed to your view, conclusion and analysis. The only way to deal with your speculative claims is to respond with facts. In the fullness of time I will show you my spreadsheets, which show that the bank's balance sheet is significantly improved and that it is growing its loan portfolio. The key to a bank's future growth is its capital and deposits, and Bank of America has plenty of both." Futures are up after the close. Up five handles -- Facebook (FB) effect? Futures recovered nearly half of the 30-point drop as of 4:40 p.m. ET. They bent but didn't break. SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) closed down $2.07 -- it was down $3.10 at the worse level of the day. Technically, it looks like we had the third repudiation of SPY $191 and we have the support at the Wednesday gap at $185. But, so obvious! The U.S. dollar weakened. Gold was up another $4.40, continuing its multiday skein higher. Crude oil rose by 60 cents. The correlation between stocks and energy prices was abandoned today. In agricultural commodities, wheat was schmeissed (down eight cents) and corn was flat. Lumber was strong. Bonds reversed slightly to the upside after early morning weakness. Yields were flat to down two basis points across the maturities range. Municipals were well-bid and high yield was slightly lower in price and higher in yield. I am all in Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) and the three-day winning streak stayed intact. I finally like the developing price action. Apple (AAPL) was a feature and I contributed my two bits!  Banks, though well off their highs, were up on the day in a broadly lower tape. Life insurance stocks continued their steady descent; we have nearly 25% gains on MetLife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) shorts now. Staples were strong, absolutely and relatively, with gains in Procter & Gamble (PG), 3M (MMM) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB). Oils were mixed despite stronger crude prices. Media continued to get crushed; my gains are building up in my short book in this sector, where I'm short Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS). Old tech was crippled today, led by Microsoft (MSFT) and Buffett fav IBM (IBM). Another new low for iShares China Large-Cap (FXI). A short and on the Best Ideas List.  Autos were stable. Ford (F) was down and General Motors (GM) was up.  I am sticking to these shorts, but trimmed considerably last week. (T)FANG was broadly lower, ex Facebook (see below). I have been warning about this acronym for two months and its underperformance is conspicuous."The Day of Reckoning Near for the (T)FANGs?" from two weeks ago. Amazon (AMZN) was down $18 ("A Long List of Reasons to Short Amazon") and Netflix (NFLX) is really breaking down. I recently wrote up both and shorted -- NFLX is on my Best Ideas List (10/12/2015 at $113).  NOSH was not tasty, with Nike (NKE) and Starbucks (SBUX) weighing it down. CRABBY was not so; it was up across the board, though timidly so. Miracle of miracles!  Potash (POT), Radian Group (RDN) and Twitter (TWTR) showed some life after death today. All higher, but modestly so. eBay (EBAY) missed and guided lower after the close. Shares down by 11%. Mo mo oh no! Biotech was a wreck, with broad losses in the primary and secondary names. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was down by almost 4%, led by rollup Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) going down and by Mallinckrodt (MNK). The same sellers in IBB are likely selling (T)FANG. Facebook's results were the "world's fair." Nothing NOT to dislike!
