Peak Autos, Redux Real Money Pro($)

May monthly sales at Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) have materially disappointed, and I see "Peak Autos" as clear as the day.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar rallied strongly. And stocks lost their correlation to the currency, rising dramatically. Crude oil advanced by 60 cents to $48.68. But nat gas dropped by six cents. Gold declined by more than $22 an ounce; I cautioned about the precious metal yesterday. Again, participants "off sides" much like equities today.  Agricultural commodities were mixed: wheat +2.75, corn +0.75, soybean -2.25, oats -.50. Lumber rose by $2.50 following the buoyant housing data. Bonds fell. Dennis Gartman had quite negative comments on fixed income in his daily letter today. The yield on the 10-year note rose by one basis point to 1.85% and the long bond was flat at 2.63% despite a successful two-year auction. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end muni bond funds continued toward their second daily advance. High yield was also stronger. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) sprinted up nearly 1%. Banks flourished with talk of a June/July rate hike and, perhaps, a few more later in the year. Insurance rallied. I added to long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG). Brokerages rose but failed to rally as hard as the overall market. Retail was weak, though Home Depot (HD) rose $2. Best Buy (BBY) was a feature to downside after disappointing guidance. Surprisingly, my two shorts -- Foot Locker (FL) and Nordstrom (JWN) -- were marginally lower. Old tech was led by Microsoft (MSFT), which caught an analyst upgrade at Cowen and rose $1.50. IBM (IBM) was up a similar amount. Media was up, but marginally. Disney (DIS) and Comcast (CMCSA) were up 50 cents each. Energy stocks underperformed. My short Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up a quarter and short Schlumberger (SLB) rose 60 cents. Staples were higher. Autos were ahead, but small and non-threatening to the shorts. Ford (F) was up 15 cents and General Motors (GM) up 35 cents. Biotech, my new long target, rallied. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up $5. Buys Allergan (AGN) gained $3.60, Celgene (CELG) rose $2.35, Gilead Sciences (GILD) was up $2.70 and Intrexon (XON) was up 70 cents.  Ag equipment was well-bid. Caterpillar (CAT) was up 40 cents and Deere (DE) gained $1.40. (T)FANG was marvelous. Strong gains in Netflix (NFLX), Alphabet (GOOGL), Amazon (AMZN) and Facebook (FB). NOSH was strong as investors/traders gobbled up O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and HD. CRABBY's six components were higher. In terms of individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) continued its ascent, rising $1.30. Potash (POT), which I sold yesterday, was conspicuously weaker despite Monsanto's (MON) $3 gain. Twitter (TWTR) hit new lows. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) rallied; I added at low levels today and over last few days. DuPont (DD) is the "world's fair," hitting another new high and up 85 cents. Here are some value-added columns posted on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on Catalyst City.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on an interesting comparison between U.S. Oil Fund (USO) and Alerian MLP (AMLP).  Bret "Meet George" Jensen says take a chill pill.  Tim Melvin on three interesting small bank ideas. Rev Shark gets Billy Joel on us -- it's all just a matter of trust.
Keep cash on hand and be ready for oportunities as they arise.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil ramped up to $46.06, up $1.40, proving most pundits wrong both on the downside early this year and the upside recently.  As I have warned, few commodities forecasters are very rigorous in their projection process.  Me, I had a general and strong view that OPEC was dissolving and prices would drop last October. Today, I don't know.  Gold was up $12.40 to $1,277. Agricultural commodities: wheat -2.50, corn -3.25, soybean -5.25, oats -4.25. Lumber down 50 cents. Bonds rallied. The 10-year note yield dropped by two basis points to 1.74% and the long bond by three basis points to 2.58%. Municipals were well-bid, but closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was down six cents to just below $14. Banks fared well for most of the day but turned red in the mid-afternoon. Small losses, though. Financial Sector Select SPDR ETF (XLF), the object of my recent disaffection (I am short), was off 26 cents. Insurance generally declined, though Lincoln National (LNC) was flat. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) continued to lose ground, down nearly $2 again today. Brokerages got hit; I covered too early this week. Private equity stocks continue to lag. Retail was the story of the day -- it was a nuclear holocaust. Nordstrom (JWN), my short, was down by $3.40. Macy's got whacked by $5.60. Others were a mess, too. Old tech was weak, led by IBM (IBM), down a beaner. Energy stocks failed to rally in the face of the commodity rise, but losses were contained. Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) were off fractionally. Auto stocks were lower. Ford (F) was off 20 cents and General Motors (GM) was down 27 cents. They seem to be rolling over after recent gains. Media was weighed down by the Disney miss. DIS was down $4.65 and Comcast (CMCSA) was off 60 cents. Consumer staples were hit across the board. Agricultural equipment performed well in a relative sense -- flat. Biotech was another group that gave a false signal yesterday. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down 2%. Valeant (VRX) was down 5.5% and has no rally. My former speculative biotech basket was rotten to the core with large losses. Celgene (CELG) was down $2.50 and Gilead Sciences (GILD) down $2; I believe they are both value traps. (T)FANG was higher most of the day but got hurt with chatter over antitrust issues with Alphabet (GOOGL), down $7. AMZN is a monster, up another $12. Tesla (TSLA) was up small, though Netflix (NFLX) broke down $2.80. NOSH was unappetizing; Nike (NKE) was down $2, O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) was off $6, Starbucks (SBUX) declined $1.20 (I am short and the shares appear to be rolling over; I might add to this position on any strength) and Home Depot (HD) slid $3. CRABBY's six components were lower.  In terms of individual stocks, Apple continues to stink up the joint (down nearly a beaner -- it remains in liquidation mode). Short or sell it, don't hold it! Twitter (TWTR) up flat, Potash (POT) continues weaker, Radian Group (RDN) is back down and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) declined 85 cents and is getting back to my buying levels. Long fav DuPont (DD) slipped 30 cents. iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU), my short Trade of the Week, was down by only four cents. I remain short. Here are some great columns that appeared on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on how to win!  Gary "The Sun Will Come Out To" Morrow writes about Facebook (FB) -- he is not high on the stock but is a buyer on weakness.  The stock, like Amazon, continues to be a beast! Jared "Not Bob" Woodard features the latter company in his post.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins sees issues at Perrigo (PRGO).  Jeremy LaKosh on GM as a value play. He makes some solid points, but I remain short the name.   Tony Owusu sees a silver lining at Disney.
