Peak Autos (Yet Again) Real Money Pro($)

I can't emphasize more vigorously than I have in the past few months how big a mistake I believe buying automobile stocks might be in the mature automotive cycle that I think we're currently in.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar continues to weaken. Crude oil fell by $1.05, trading at $44.87. Nat gas was a dime lower. Gold rose by another $5 and is approaching $1,300. The precious metal did trade over $1,300 earlier in the day. Agricultural commodities: wheat -4.50, soybean +8.00, corn -3.75 and oats flat. Lumber -2.60. Bonds got taken to the woodshed. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down about a beaner. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note added three basis points to 1.85% and the long bond climbed four basis points in yield to 2.70%. Municipals sold off, but closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed to higher. High yield sold off. However, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) traded up a nickel and is approaching $14. Banks prospered, led by JPMorgan Chase (JPM). Brokerages were strong -- Morgan Stanley (MS) up 20 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) $2.50. Life insurance responded well to higher rates and lower bond prices, with smart gains in Lincoln  National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and HIG. Energy stocks were mixed. Schlumberger (SLB) was a standout loser, though Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up 50 cents. Old media was mixed. IBM (IBM), despite Warren's endorsement, was slightly lower, while Microsoft (MSFT) was up 50 cents. Retail stocks rebounded, with short Nordstrom (JWN) recovering a portion of Friday's big loss. Media thrived. Disney (DIS) was up $1.10 and Comcast (CMCSA) 55 cents. Consumer staples did well, led by former long Procter & Gamble (PG). Biotech, the object of affection to value players this year, continued to be pressured. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was down a couple. VRX recovered two-thirds of its nearly $4 loss today. My biotech basket continues to roll over. Autos were up small -- General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) a dime higher, each. Ag equipment was flat. (T)FANG recovering well, led by Amazon (AMZN), which seemingly got an endorsement from Warren Buffett over the weekend and was up $23. By contrast, Tesla (TSLA) was down by $2, though it was lower. NOSH had all four components to the good, including Starbucks (SBUX), a short. CRABBY's six components also were all higher. In terms of miscellaneous stocks, Apple (AAPL) continues to be rotten to the core, down 50 cents. Twitter (TWTR) was awful and Potash (POT) was not much better, though rival Monsanto (MON) was up. Radian Group (RDN) and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) were flat, as was DuPont (DD) after a big upside move. Warren's fav (but my short!) Coca-Cola (KO) was up 30 cents. iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI), last week's Trade of the Week, was off a dime after a very weak Friday. Here is some good stuff on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the U.S. dollar.   Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on the dreaded Coppock Curve!  Bret "Meet George" Jensen on four possible biotech targets.  The Count's take on the Berkshire Hathaway meeting.  RevShark on ... what is the market theme and on the lack of clear market leadership (a theme others like Jimmy and myself are concerned about)? 
The company needs a partner to share future tech R&D spending, but is that reason enough to accept terms that other automakers have already rejected?

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar rose modestly. It's back to nearly 1.15 against the Euro. Crude oil dropped a dime and closed at $45.93 Nat gas rose by seven cents. Gold rallied by almost $30 to $1,296. Silver was 29 cents higher. Agricultural commodities quieted down. Wheat +2.75, corn +0.75, soybean +2.25 and oats -1.75. Lumber dropped by 4.50. Bonds flat-lined. The yield on the 10- and 30-year note and bonds were unchanged. Non-taxable bonds were unchanged. Another day in which closed-end municipal bond funds fared well. Damn, am I ticked that I sold out months ago. Terrific concept, bad execution! High-yield bonds improved in a small way. But, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose 10 cents higher to $13.92, near its recent highs. I am out of the name. Banks sold off for the third day in a row. I remain short Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF). I expect more profit taking. Life insurance stocks -- I remain short Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) -- were also weak, though HIG was conspicuous in its strength. Brokerage stocks outperformed in a relative sense, with Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) flat on the day. Retail stocks, save Home Depot (HD) -- up $1.30, reversing yesterday's slide -- were underperformers. My only position in the space was the world's fair -- short Nordstrom (JWN), which was down by $1.50. Old tech weakened. Autos got wrecked. Ford (F) was down 53 cents and General Motors (GM) down 64 cents. Media was weaker, with Comcast (CMCSA) down 39 cents and Disney (DIS) down 77 cents. Biotech, which appears to be the object of the affection of some on Real Money Pro and elsewhere, was down substantially, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) down more than $7. I see most of the large-cap biotech stocks as value traps. Speaking of biotech, Pershing's Bill Ackman will be on CNBC's "Half Time" report extolling the virtue of Valeant (VRX). I will be doing the opposite in my opening missive! My speculation biotech basket got hammered. (T)FANG was toothless, excluding the large (delayed) gain in Amazon (AMZN). Apple (AAPL), a short, followed through to the downside by a beaner. NOSH was not particularly tasty. CRABBY fared well, with Alleghany (Y) up $6. In individual stocks: Potash (POT) and Twitter (TWTR) were flat. Radian Group (RDN) gave up some of its recent gains, but Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) stayed mighty -- up 60 cents and on my Best Ideas List. Here are some good columns posted today on Real Money Pro: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the need for better market leadership. (I agree!)   Jeremy LaKosh sees Xerox (XRX) as a value play.   Suz "Double S" Smith on trading for income.  Tim Melvin rocks it with a little Axel Rose.  Carleton English on what's best for Carl Icahn may not be best for you. 

Sticking by His Auto Guns Real Money Pro($)

In contrast to a number of others on our site and elsewhere and in the face of first-quarter earnings beats by Ford (F) and General Motors (GM), I doubled the size of my auto shorts this week on strength.
