Covering Shorts in Auto Sector Real Money Pro($)

While "Peak Autos" seems very much on schedule, the notion of a cyclical peak in auto industry shipments has now been materially accepted by the consensus. Auto stocks have been consistent and serial (absolute and relative) market under-performers over the last few years of market advances -- anticipating and ultimately discounting the "Peak Autos" thesis. Though automobile industry profits are likely to be lower than consensus expectations for 2016-17, valuations in today's (broader) market of expanding price earnings multiples are low and have been moving ever lower in 2016. Stock prices and relative PE multiples fo
Automakers used to spending billions on R&D want to develop their own self-driving systems. Tech giants will have to work hard to convince them to change their minds.
It can take many months or quarters before the market recognizes the value of a downtrodden name.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar has weakened considerably. The price of crude oil was down by about two bits to $51.45. Gold fell by another $4 to $1,174. Ag commodities got a lift: wheat up $0.04, corn up $0.11, soybeans up $0.16, oats down $0.15. Lumber down $2. Bonds, the object of my affection today ("Trade of the Week"), reversed from early morning lows. After yields rose by more than 4 basis points on the 10-year, the close was relatively flat. TLT slipped $1.20 from Friday's close, ending the day slightly higher. Bravo! Municipal bonds sold off. But closed-end muni-bond funds got a lift (e.g., Eaton Vance Municipal Incm 2028 Term (ETX) and Blackrock Taxable Municipal Bond Trust (BBN) ) -- hard to explain why, though! The 2s/10s spread dropped by two basis points to 127 basis points. Banks, stated simply, are continuing to be the "world's fair" -- regardless of what rates do. Short Bank of America (BAC) , Citigroup (C) and JP Morgan Chase (JPM) (all small). Brokerages bullish -- led by Goldman Sachs (GS) (on a late HSBC (HSBC) buy upgrade today, seriously??!!!). But insurance lagged, though my long Hartford Financial (HIG) was modestly higher. Auto stocks stalled. I am still small short General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) . Retail was stronger -- with upside leadership from Nordstrom (JWN)  , Best Buy (BBY)  , Foot Locker (FL)  , Nike (NKE) and Urban Outfitters (URBN) . JC Penney (JCP)
The Russell 2000 soared to a record, and the greenback notched its highest level in 13 years.

While I see many stocks with attractive reward vs. risk, they reside mostly on the short side.   Some stocks I plan to short on any …
The automaker appears poised to meet muted fourth-quarter earnings expectations.
The stock's dividend yield has climbed to nearly 5%.
The U.S. dollar is flat today. The price of crude oil rallied smartly -- by nearly $2/barrel to $47.60. The price of gold was listless, up a beaner. Agricultural commodities: wheat up $0.02, corn up $0.03, soybeans up $0.24 (!!), oats down $0.04. Lumber is flat. For a change, bonds are quiet. The yield on both the 10-year note and long bonds showed little price change. As mentioned earlier the 2w/10s narrowed by 3 basis points. Municipals were a bit lower. Junk bonds found a bid, however, and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  was up $0.06. Banks continued to trade well, small gains on top of large gains over the last month. Insurance very strong, though brokerages had some modest profit taking. Retail was mixed -- Home Depot (HD) and Nordstrom (JWN) lower while Foot Locker (FL) and Best Buy (BBY) were higher. JC Penney (JCP)  weaker. Oil stocks were the world's fair -- with broad-based gains. Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) ++. Autos lackluster, still underperforming ... down to tagends in General Motors (GM) and Ford
