Doug's Morning Musings Real Money Pro($)

Yesterday's market was "newsy," governed principally by the flow of information regarding Greece (click here and here for updates). As I've repeatedly cautioned, newsy markets are more difficult to navigate. Thanks in part to the domination of price momentum strategies (i.e., high frequency trading), a force in motion tends to stay in motion and get overextended. As it relates to the markets, that's particularly true these days in both bonds and financial stocks. Both are overextended, although in opposite directions. Fixed income is oversold, while financials are overbought. Health care and banks were market leaders yesterday, with the latter group benefiting from a steepening Treasury-bond yield curve (especially the 2-year-vs.-10-year spread). Banks are now overbought. Although I haven't sold a share of my money-center and regional-bank holdings, I'm not chasing the sector either. The fixed-income market rallied appreciably yesterday. The 10-year yield fell from 2.505% to under 2.40% and stands at under 2.39% this morning. As I noted in my column on Wednesday, bonds are very oversold. I had expected 10-year U.S. Treasury yields to peak in the 2.35%-to-2.50% range -- and thus far, that projection has held. On the other hand, I had expected 10-year Treasury yields to move closer toward 2% this summer as signs of slowing growth emerged. Let's see if that forecast holds as well. My current feeling is that it's too ambitious by 10 to 15 basis points given the higher yields and continued weakness in German Bunds and other EU bonds. Monthly retail sales were more or less in line -- but under the hood, the growth was skewed toward strength in gasoline and autos (as I discussed in Columnist Conversations). The Atlanta Fed GDPNow model's estimate of second-quarter real GDP rose to 1.9% from 0.8%. The news of CEO Dick Costolo's departure from Twitter (TWTR) isn't surprising. I haven't had the chance to completely review yesterday's conference call (I was out all day), but I'll do so shortly and share my thoughts on Monday. I generally agree with Jim "El Capitan" Cramer's comments that operational change is brewing at Twitter despite the company's statement that current strategy continue. Based on what I've read so far, a move into the low $40s for Twitter stock seems likely this summer. I have no plans to sell my position -- indeed, I'd be a buyer at under $38 a share. As an aside, we should remember that Facebook (FB) also had some issues after going public. FB needed to social scale post-IPO and resolved -- post haste -- that important issue. I expect the same with TWTR. As for this morning's action, futures are slightly lower -- but are volatile and have already moved well off of their lows. I remain net short in this unpredictable and "newsy" setting. Although I'm still of the "Peak Complacency" opinion, i
