A down day, thus far. S&P near the day's low. SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at $206, or about 30 cents above the day's low. Fairly bad breadth on the NYSE. Qs (Nasdaq) are creaming Ss (S&P) who are creaming Rs (Russell). I am not sure of the last time the Nasdaq was higher on the day and the Russell was down by more than 1%. "Paradise Lost" in my Trade of the Week idea of iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM). Bonds bid well, both taxables and non-taxables. Financials weaker, especially of a life insurance kind as the meager reinvestment opportunities glow clearly in the earnings report of Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG). Lincoln National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and Prudential (PRU) wiping up the joint.  Banks are getting hit, and I expect after the nice run-up for this to continue. (T)FANG mixed, which is good performance relative to the recent price advance. Retail tagged, too. Autos lower on the Ford (f) disappointment relative to expectations. Energy under the spell of still-lower crude oil prices. Transports (trucking and airlines in particular) awful, seemingly portending slowing domestic economic growth that has been confirmed in a lot of high-frequency economic statistics. So does the United Parcel Service (UPS) miss foreshadow economic issues. Biowreck in a reasonable "dead cat bounce" mode today, up 2%. But Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) -- the object of my disaffection in today's opening missive -- is down on the day.  Gold is disappointing. Some profit-taking consumer non-durables, led by Procter & Gamble (PG) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB), but nothing material. The Alibaba (BABA) and Yahoo! (YHOO) sell-offs -- down $5 and $1.50, respectively -- from premarket highs were meaningful. When does Uncle Warren say "What the heck?" -- my editor cleaned this up -- to IBM (IBM) and take his loss as he did in Exxon Mobil (XOM)? My guess is, never. Ferrari IPO stalled below offering price. GrubHub (GRUB) down by more than 25% despite large call buying this week. Thanks again to Jeff Saut at Raymond James for a nice shout-out.  Despite some modest weakness in the high-yield bond market, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) trading up by 0.5% this afternoon. I only

Why I Sold Ford and GM Real Money Pro($)

As noted earlier this morning, I recently sold my longs of Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) -- and here's a bit more of my rationale for doing so.

Ford Cranks Out Mixed Results Real Money Pro($)

Quarterly profits at Ford (F) came in a penny shy of consensus expectations, but the company's effective tax rate (33%) was above forecast. And as was the case with General Motors (GM), domestic profits hit a record.
This ' pro trade' is one of my favorite ways to play direction.
Buy 100 F for $13.30 and buy 1 F March 13 put for $1.35

Closing Out My GM Long Real Money Pro($)

I sold my Ford (F) stock earlier this week, and I just liquidated my General Motors (GM) holdings this morning at $32.72.
Today and the past few weeks were a testimony to the notion that buyers live higher and sellers live lower. Buying high works in an uptrend,

Driving Away from Ford Real Money Pro($)

Although I only have modest exposure in cyclicals, I want to reduce even that small exposure right now.

Narrowing Some of My Longs Real Money Pro($)

I was optimistic last week that Monday and Tuesday's early weakness was a successful test of the August lows, so I added a trading layer to some of my long-term investment holdings.
With the belief that the Fed can't raise rates this year, gold has once again squeezed the shorts.
