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.

Peak Pick-Up Trucks? Real Money Pro($)

Auto Week is reporting about another headwind that could contribute to my "Peak Autos" thesis ... "Peak Pick-Up Trucks"!
Fundamentals. These are weak and weakening. Peaks are plentiful, payroll growth is moderating, real GDP is weak and China is a big question mark. Valuations. These are elevated by historic standar
And it's hard to get excited about the second quarter, too.
I recently warned that the rotation out of former market leaders and into oversold financial, cyclical, industrial and energy/commodities stocks could be short-lived and have adverse broad-market ramifications.
The world's market and global economies are maturing. There are still Many Peaks I See. An important and major stock-market top began to develop in May 2015, although tops ar
A Reuters article out today about Ford (F) and the carmaker's April Chinese sales "bears" reading, as it might be another indication of "Peak Autos":

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. Crude oil fell by a quarter to $43.40. Nat gas was a nickel to the good. Gold fell by $12.60 to $1,279 and it continues to look like $1,300 is a formidable hurdle. Agricultural commodities quieted down, with wheat and corn moving small. Soybeans +8.50 and oats -3.50. Lumber +1.50. Bonds lifted in price and dropped in yield for the second day in a row. The yield on the 10-year and long bond dropped by two basis points to 1.78% and 2.64%, respectively. Municipals flattened. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. The high-yield market was off somewhat. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was down a penny to $13.95. Banks got whacked -- fortunately, as I remain short Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) at good prices. Drops of 2% to 3% for the major money center banks. Deutsche Bank (DB) continues lower. Let's watch this and the poor performance of the European banks closely in the weeks ahead. Life insurance stocks also got schmeissed -- again, a good thing for me as I am short Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET), both down by about a beaner. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) was lower after yesterday's $2+ decline. Brokerages also got hit, with MS down 65 cents and GS down $3.10. I covered my trading short rentals today on this weakness. Old tech was mixed. I covered my MSFT trading short (I didn't like the quality of the earnings report) for a $2 gain this morning. Retail was mixed, but my sole exposure -- short Nordstrom (JWN) -- was down $1.20, continuing its recent weakness. Again, a good thing! Former retail longs Macy's (M), Best Buy (BBY) and Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY) were taken to the woodshed today. Consumer staples strengthened. Autos continue their sloppy streak -- I doubled my shorts recently. Ford (F) was down 15 cents and General Motors (GM) down 65 cents. Even Phish (Let Trey Sing!) knows about Peak Autos! Bummed is what you are in "Contact" when your auto stocks are towed. Energy stocks were lower, with Schlumberger (SLB) down $2 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) off 35 cents. I like, others don't. Media made for uninteresting viewing, with Disney (DIS) and Comcast (CMCSA) lower. Biotech continues as a bio wreck. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down nearly $8, or almost 3%. Speculative biotech was annihilated, with Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) down 7% and Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) off nearly 6%. (T)FANG was weighed down by a $9 loss in Tesla (TSLA) as management departures and a Chanos diss on "Fast Money Halftime" impacted the security. Earnings are after close and I am going into it with my small short. TSLA is on my Best Ideas List. NOSH all up, but small. CRABBY was crabby, led by declines in Radian Group (RDN), Citigroup (C) and Alleghany (Y). In miscellaneous action, Twitter (TWTR) had an unaccustomed up day, but Potash (POT) stayed in jail (and I don't see a reason why it will get a "Get Out of Jail" card over the short term with weakening fundamentals). Radian was lower, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) continues its two-day loss of leaves, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) is burdened by its brothers and sisters in the insurance space (I am buying more on weakness), and fav DuPont (DD) continues its decline (but it's too early to add to). Apple gives up much of yesterday's gains, down a beaner. Here is some great analysis from today's Real Money Pro: Jim "El Capitan" on the good health of the broadcasting industry.  Jeremy LaKosh looks for a potential entry point in automaker Ford.  I already have mine – and it's on the short side! RevShark's got the seasonal and Fed fever and jitters. Another good one from Rev on the absence of fear in the marketplace.  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on trading a lower currency. No Ponsi Scheme in this column!  Divine on the issue of "giddiness."  She's always a great read and makes me think more outside of the envelope.
