My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. currency weakened. The price of crude oil rallied by 67 cents after yesterday's schmeissing. Gold climbed by five bucks to $1,364. Agricultural commodities: wheat -6, corn -9, soybean flattish after yesterday's crash, oats +2. Bonds were flat after starting the day strong. The yield on the 10-year note and long bond were up one basis point to 1.38% and 2.14%, respectively. The 2s/10s spread was down to eighty basis points. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end muni bond funds were mixed. The high-yield bond market prospered again. Banks were up, but not considerably. They seem to be laboring under the obvious pressures. Brokerages were flattish, disappointing after the schmeissing recently. The same applies to life insurance stocks, which can't get out of their own way. Now we have 30% plus gain in our shorts of Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET), which is a good thing. Retail was higher after serial weakness this year. My shorts Nordstrom (JWN) and Foot Locker (FL) were up large fractions. Home Depot (HD) retains sector leadership, but Bruce Kamich disses Lowe's (LOW).  Auto stocks are laboring under a peak print months ago in the seasonally adjusted annual rate; after the close, S&P lowered its auto sales forecasts. Energy stocks were mixed to higher. Old tech was dull with little price movement. Staples were stable. Media was quiet, though my short Disney (DIS) was up 60 cents. A nice boost in biotech. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was up $5 and from these levels I could see some continued strength. Valeant (VRX) was an upside feature, rising more than 15%. (T)FANG was led by Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN). In individual stocks, my long fav DuPont was weak (I am buying), Twitter (TWTR) was flat, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was down a half buck and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was slightly higher on the day. My short Apple (AAPL) up 50 cents. Away from our site here are two good reads: Andrew Sorkin's summer reading list.  Knowledge@Wharton on China's debt load.  There also was a lot of value-added product on our site today: Spy vs. Spy on oil with Jim "El Capitan" Cramer and Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross is long and strong gold.  Mike "Stormin" Norman lives up to his name as he
And that's distinctly good news for the overall market.
I'm not batting a thousand, but some of my calls are looking good.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil fell by $1.50 to $48.40. Gold was essentially unchanged. Agricultural commodities: wheat flat, corn -9, soybean +42(!!) and oats unchanged. Lumber +4. Bonds rose slightly in price. The "action" in iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) seems toppy to me, but I am short less on price action and more based on fundamental analysis and historical relationships (see above). The yield on the 10-year U.S. note was unchanged at 1.48%. The long bond yield was up one basis point to yield 2.29%. The 2s/10s spread was up by two basis points to 90 basis points. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. The high-yield bond market was strong, while Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up 11 cents. Banks were a bit of a disappointment, failing to materially follow through after the stress tests were announced. Insurance stocks were disappointing. Small gains for Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET). Brokerages thrived. Morgan Stanley (MS) rose 75 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) was up $3. Premature sellage by me. Retail stocks were mixed to lower. Foot Locker (FL) and Nike (NKE) were lower after large gains on Wednesday. Nordstrom (JWN), a short, was up 18 cents. Old tech was stronger, led by IBM (IBM), up $3. Autos were weak, down most of the day. Not a good sign to be in the red on such a strong day in the markets. Agricultural equipment was mixed. Media had a mixed message, though Disney (DIS) and Comcast (CMCSA) were higher (I covered on Monday). Energy stocks shined despite a large drop in crude prices. Exxon Mobil (XOM) and SLB were up nicely. Programs? Regardless, another weird feature of today's market. Biotech was disappointing. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was flat, with several large and speculative stocks clearly rolling over. New lows for Valeant (VRX). Staples were the world's fair after the Mondelez (MDLZ) MDbid for Hershey. Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP), covered on Monday, surged by $1.22. Campbell Soup (CPB) and Pepsico (PEP) were up big. (T)FANG was mixed. Tesla (TSLA) was strong in the regular session, but sold off in the after hours after some safety concerns. In individual stocks, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was up $1.22 (I have been steadily accumulating). My long fav DuPont (DD) was up 90 cents after getting schmeissed in the last few days. There was a vague (and to me, silly) rumor of a Potash (POT) takeover; it makes no sense because Canadian government sees the company as important to the country as an independent entity. Coca-Cola (KO), a short, got caught up in the strength of the defensive sector. Here are some valuable contributions on the site today: Nice video on banks by Jim "El Capitan" Cramer.  "Big" James Gentile is looking forward to fireworks, but not the ones over the holiday weekend!  Brian Sozzi on food companies hurrying up to merge.  Tony Owusu on Facebook's (FB) friendliness.  Rev Shark on meddling central bankers.
