My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened today. Crude oil dropped two bits to $48.85. Gold was up $10.50 to $1,287, making an assault back at the $1,300 resistance area. Agricultural commodities: wheat -3, corn +7, soybean flat and oats +3.50. Lumber -3.50. Bonds rallied for another day. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up 40 cents. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by two basis points to a record low 1.61%. The long bond dropped by one basis point to 2.44%. The 2s/10s spread was flat at 91 basis points. Municipals rose and closed-end municipal bond funds continued to rise. High-yield bonds were hit. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) fell by eight cents. Banks slipped and continue to show signs of rolling over. Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) was down 0.5%. I have been adding to the short. Insurance was mixed, but my only long, Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), climbed by 50 cents.   Brokerages continue to underperform. Retail was mixed to lower. My short, Nordstrom (JWN), was a standout to the downside, off $1.10. Old tech was lower, led by IBM (IBM). Autos also were exhibiting signs of rolling over. Biotech continues its recent weakness, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) down 1%. Allergan (AGN) was up almost $3, but most others were lower. I have no interest in bottom fishing and the technical recovery mentioned by some appears to be not so much. Agricultural equipment was lower led by short Caterpillar (CAT). Media was mixed, though Disney (DIS) was stronger. Staples were weaker despite a lower U.S. currency -- my fav large-cap short Coca-Cola (KO) was down 45 cents. Energy stocks were mixed, with Exxon Mobil (XOM) up and Schlumberger (SLB) down. TFANG was quiet, though Facebook (FB) was down $3 on a Citron Research negative report. In selected individual securities, Monsanto (MON) and The Mighty Oak -- aka Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) -- were noticeably weaker. Alibaba (BABA) broke bad. My long fav DuPont (DD) was down by nearly a beaner. Country shorts iShares China Large-Cap (FXI) and iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU) were lower, going the right way for the manner in which I am positioned. Sector shorts Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR (XLP) and Material Select Sector SPDR (XLB) - also are going in the right direction. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on natural gas elbowing out coal.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross on a possible breakout in the precious metal.  Tim Melvin on three bank stocks to avoid.  James Passeri on Valeant (VRX) and Walgreens (WBA).  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on a Facebook short. 
Shorting Facebook is a speculative trade, but a lower candle close could be an opportunity.
But other than that, it tells us precious little about Twitter.
Microsoft's share price will presumably fall on the news. (It was down some 3% at last check.) Other cloud companies' prices will also likely fall, as MSFT is presumably no longer a likely suitor for them. Microsoft will have its hands full for now with the LinkedIn deal. Accordingly, I've added to my short of the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) this morning. P.S. Citron Research's Andrew Left just told CNBC thi

Is Netflix the New AOL? Real Money Pro($)

A valuation of more than 100x twelve-month-trailing EBITD. Relatively unexciting sales growth (currently about +24%). Little likelihood of margin expansion given Netflix's rising content costs. AOL Redux? Just as AOL did in the late 1990s and early 2000s, NFLX shares dance to the tune of subscriber count. And each quarter, the company consistently exceeds forecasts for that (which are probably managed). But also like AOL, Netflix has little free cash flow -- and to me, the stock appears to be enjoying its last hurrah. Unlike fellow FANG components Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet/Google (GOOG, GOOG

George Soros doesn't like stocks? What else is new? Go elsewhere for investing advice.
But don't sell a market short because you don't like the way prices are rallying.
We're advancing, but merely to the top of the previous consolidation zone, so why the euphoria?
