My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.22 to $41.00. Nat gas was up by sixteen cents. Gold rose by $18.70 to $1,253. Silver was up by 70 cents. More upside action in agricultural chemicals, with Potash (POT) up $1.20. Wheat +11.50, corn +3.50, soybeans +28.50 and oats +5.25. Lumber was +6.40. Bonds dropped a bit in price, and were slightly higher in yield. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by one basis point to 1.78% and the long bond by a similar amount and yields 2.59%. Municipals down slightly; closed-end muni funds' rapid advance dissipated late in the day ... finally! High yield was well-bid. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 36 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 15 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three cents lower; I am out of the name now. Banks exploded to the upside, led by JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Comerica (CMA), all up by over a beaner. Life insurance advanced again, though my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) lagged. Brokerages were up, led by Morgan Stanley (MS), up 64 cents, and Goldman Sachs (GS), up $3.65. Retail was quiet. Home Depot (HD) was a downside leader, off $1.50. Lowe's (LOW) was weak, too. Old tech got IBM'd, with IBM (IBM) down $8.50. Staples were broadly higher, led by long Procter & Gamble (PG), up 50 cents. Old media was mixed. Comcast (CMCSA) was lower but Disney (DIS) led the parade. Autos were strong, continuing the Barron's push over the past weekend. Ford (F) was up 15 cents and General Motors (GM) up 65 cents. Oils responded to better commodity pricing. Schlumberger (SLB) was the league leader, up $1.70. Biotech and the rest of the Nasdaq were conspicuously to the downside. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down 1.66%. Allergan (AGN) is still recovering (up $4.50) and my former biotech basket got hit, but not materially so. (T)FANG weakness was also obvious, though Facebook (FB) had a late-day kick save. NOSH was mixed. So was CRABBY. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) was a poor actor. On the other hand, fav long DuPont (DD) was strong, up $1.15. Here are some great posts on RealMoneyPro today: Some oil vey from Jim "El Capitan" Cramer.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on some overnight trade ideas.  And also from Tim, some SPY-ing.  RevShark on
Industry data seem to indicate weakness across the board with worse results ahead.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. Dollar was weaker, but modestly so. Crude oil rallied magnificently from the lows and only dropped by 60 cents to $39.77 on the day. Natural gas is four cents higher. Gold was flat Large upside move in several agricultural commodities: wheat +14.50 and corn +2.75, but soybean down slightly Lumber down $2.40. Bonds rose in price, moved lower in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down 57 cents. The 10-year U.S. note yields 1.77%, up two basis points, and the long bond is up the same amount in yield to 2.58%. Municipals were up slightly in price, but those closed-end municipal bond funds continue to rip higher. It's become unrelenting. High yield was better. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rebounded by about a dime in price. I am no longer long. Banks managed small gains. Life insurers had marginal gains. I'm still long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) and short MetLife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC). Brokerages were mixed. I shorted both Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) today. The market is enamored with a 50% drop in MS earnings -- makes little sense to me. Autos were up -- GM up 75 cents and Ford (F) up 31 cents on a better market and a cover story in Barron's. Why I disagree with Barron's.  Retail was higher, led by Wal-Mart (WMT), Home Depot (HD), Coach (COH) and Under Armour (UA). I eliminated my Macy's (M) long and took the name off of my Best Ideas List this afternoon. Short Nordstrom (JWN) up by a half-dollar.  Consumer staples were stronger, led by long Procter & Gamble (PG). Oils rallied despite the commodity being pressured. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $1.19 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up 81 cents. Biotech was up 1.5%, led by Allergan (AGN), rebounding from recent losses, and Valeant (VRX), up $1.15. My biotech basket was unexciting. Old tech prospered, led by Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco (CSCO). Media was a standout. Comcast (CMCSA) was up 40 cents and Disney (DIS) up $3.00. (T)FANG was mixed, with shorts Tesla (TSLA) and Netflix (NFLX) lower. Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) were up five dollars each. NOSH was up across the board, led by HD and O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY). CRABBY's six components were all up. In individual stock land: Potash (POT) was up 30 cents, Twitter (TWTR) down a like amount and Radian Group (RDN) up a few pennies. Apple's (AAPL) $2.70 decline was conspicuous. Here are some great articles on RealMoneyPro today: Jim Cramer on "Don't Let Oil Do Your Investing"  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on "At What Price Should you Buy AMZN and FB?"  Mark Sebastian's "Doha's Big Deal Turns Out to be a Dud"   Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins offers an option strategy ahead of IBM's earnings  and opines on IBM and NFLX.  Bobby Lang on ignoring talking Fed heads.
It looks like WTI crude around $40 plus continued low gas prices may please the equities market.
Crude prices have cut their losses from earlier in the day.
While I still "bleed Barron's Blue," the magazine's gushing cover story this weekend on the auto industry disappointed me in that it failed to recognize the growing likelihood of "Peak Autos." (Click here to see my take on the auto industry, or here for Zero Hedge's view.)

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil down by 10 cents to $40.40. Nat gas down by six cents. Gold up $7.20 to $1,233. Agricultural commodities: wheat flat, soybean +8.00 and corn +3.25. Big decline in lumber --$7.50 lower. Bonds soared, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up $1.10). The yield on the 10-year declined by three basis points to 1.75% and same for long bond (2.56%). iShares National Muni Bond ETF (MUB) was bid for. Closed-end municipal bond funds are still rising in price. High yield was quiet. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was flat after yesterday's schmeissing.  I have moved to small in size. Banks gave back some after a small beat from Citigroup (C). More on the group on Monday. Life insurance gave back some, as did brokerages. Retail was predominantly higher, led by long Macy's (M), up a beaner. Old tech was weaker, with the downside led by Cisco (CSCO) and Intel (INTL) -- rumors from my Gnome on job cuts there. Staples were better, but no large price moves. Autos gave back. General Motors (GM) down 25 cents and Ford (F) down 20 cents. Biotech was down small -- iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down $1). Same for media. My biotech basket sold off after a great run. Heavy equipment held in the form of Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) (T)FANG was so so. Alphabet (GOOGL) was strong, FB weak. NOSH had little movement and was not appetizing. CRABBY had little movement, too. In individual stocks, Apple (I added to my short materially yesterday) was a downside feature (off $2) on rumored productions cuts. DuPont (DD) had another high for the year. Twitter (TWTR) advanced small and so did Potash (POT).  Here are some great articles on RealMoneyPro today: El Capitan on Friday EPS reports.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on Apple.  Mike "Stormin'" Norman on

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

Another day in which what was bad -- cyclicals, energy and banking -- is good again. The U.S. dollar strengthened -- that, too, is not supposed to be good for equities. Crude oil reversed from 2016 highs established earlier in the day. closing down by 38 cents to $41.79. Natural gas climbed by three cents. Gold was down $12.60 to $1,249. Monster move higher in agricultural commodities: wheat +0.25, corn +11.00. soybean +20.5 -- to the moon, Alice.   Bonds climbed, with iShares 20-Year+ Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up 50 cents. The 10-year and the 30-year barely moved. Yields unchanged. Municipals were slightly higher. High yield prospered, with iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 60 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 25 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a nickel to a new recent high of $13.90. Banks were the world's fair on a slight JPMorgan Chase (JPM) beat against much-lowered expectations from a few months ago. Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) are on tap later this week. Notably, Deutsche Bank (DB) dead-catted by 8%. Brokerages ripped higher on better-than-expected capital markets activity within the JPM report. Morgan Stanley (MS) was up more than a beaner and Goldman Sachs (GS) was up $5. Life insurance stocks also strong. Autos rebounded, with General Motors (GM) up $1.05 and Ford (F) up 25 cents as investors are willing to pay more for a dollar of earnings that are peaking. Defensive consumer nondurables were anything but defensive as the market continues to rotate to more aggressive names. Staples were hit, including Best Ideas List long Procter & Gamble (PG).  Old tech was higher, but less than the market. IBM (IBM) continues its skein after an upgrade a few days ago. Modest gains for Intel (INTC), Cisco (CSCO) and Microsoft (MSFT). iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up 1.9% despite the Theranos news and the credit release at Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX). Allergan (AGN) was lower. My former biotech basket of speculative stocks was mixed. Celgene (CELG), Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), Intrexon (XON), Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) and Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) were strong. Media joined the fun. Comcast (CMCSA) was up only 20 cents but Disney (DIS) was up two beaners. Retail was higher, but not materially so after the weak data. (T)FANG with the exception of a weak Facebook (FB) was higher on the day. But there was distinct underperformance against the averages. NOSH was mixed and also underperformed. CRABBY was led by C. In individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) was up $1.60 and Twitter (TWTR) rose almost 5%, while Potash (POT) and Radian Group (RDN) also moved higher. Limited trading today. Here is some great stuff on RealMoneyPro today: El Capitan on CSX  (CSX) and Jeremy LaKosh on the same subject.  RevShark's always-informative market takes.  Carleton English on the bears' dilemma.  Mike Norman's I told you so.  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" does the

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

High of the days with about seventy minutes to go. What's bad is new and good again -- cyclicals and energy -- in a crude-inspired rally today. Crude rises by $1.87 to $42.23 -- a 2016 high based on rumors of a Saudi-Russia output deal. Nat gas up by seven cents. The U.S. dollar strengthened a bit. Gold up $1.20. In the agricultural commodities world: wheat +4.00, corn +6.00, soybeans +10.00. A big recovery from yesterday's weakness. Lumber up $5.10. Bonds get hit -- iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) off by more than a beaner. The 10-year U.S. note yields 1.78% -- a gain of five basis points -- while the long bond rose by four basis points to 2.60%. Municipals were flat, but closed-end muni bond funds continue their amazingly strong run. High yield bonds were strong despite the weakness in taxable. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) continued its nice run, up a nickel to a recent high of $13.90. Banks ignored the coming poor earnings prospects. Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) all were strong, but European banks -- e.g., Deutsche Bank (DB) -- languished. Life insurance stocks responded well to lower bond prices. My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) underperformed my shorts Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET). Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) was strong, up by nearly $1.25. Brokerages moved higher, with Morgan Stanley (MS) up 65 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) up $2.65. Retail space was strong, led by Home Depot (HD) and Wal-Mart (WMT). Old tech disappointed with fractional gains, if any. Consumer nondurables were indifferent to the rally. My long Procter & Gamble (PG) was up modestly, my short Coca-Cola (KO) the same. Biotech underperformed as investors preferred cyclicals. IBB up less than one percent with AGN showing no life (down by another -$5+). Autos weren't cruising, with only marginal gains in Ford (F) and General Motors (GM). (T)FANG action was mild relative to the broader market's strength as high growth was shunned. Tesla (TSLA) continued lower after yesterday's SUV recall, but Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Alphabet (GOOG) traded better. Media moved higher, with Comcast (CMCSA) up 30 cents and Disney (DIS) up $1.06; both are candidates for more shorting. NOSH was tasty excluding Starbucks (SBUX), which got a DB downgrade; I remain short. CRABBY was strong, with all six components higher. In individual stocks, Fastenal (FAST) fell off an in-line number and some cautionary commentary. Twitter (TWTR) still foundering. Potash (POT) and, in particular, Radian Group (RDN), showed some life. Caterpillar (CAT) continues higher. And my large-cap "stock of the year," DuPont (DD), is up by over $1. Here are some great columns on RealMoneyPro today: El Capitan on Facebook.  Ben Cross on oil and shorts.  Sham Gad "And the Pharoahs" on value investing
Investors should continue to approach the entire sector with caution.
