My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rallied for a second day in a row, rising $1.50 to almost $51. Gold flat, no bounce. Agricultural commodities: Wheat up $0.07, corn down $0.05, soybean unchanged, oats up $0.05. Lumber up $1. Bonds got schmeissed but traded well off the day's lows (as the 10-year yield touched 2.5%). The 10-year and long-bond yields rose by 9 basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose by another 5 basis points to 130 basis points. Muncipals were lower. Junk bonds got hit badly, despite the rise in crude oil. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  rose $0.08. Banks were powerful to the upside. I reshorted at reasonably good prices in the afternoon, after covering my small rental shorts in pre-market trading earlier. Insurance stocks flew. Long Hartford Financial (HIG)  , which rose. Brokerages so strong -- Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) (up $7). Retail was strong led by Target (TGT) , Foot Locker (FL) , Nike (NKE) and JC Penney (JCP) (long). Autos were the "world's fair." I still have tag end short positions. I expect the upside move to get over-done short term, and I will reload on the short side. Energy stocks up, but small relative to the commodity. Old tech was clobbered. International Business Machines (IBM) , Intel (INTC) , Cisco (CSCO) (short and working nicely) and Microsoft (MSFT) got bashed along with the entire sector. Biotech was down 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) were weak. New lows Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRX) . Spec weak again (Portula Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) , Sage (SAGE) , Intrexon (XON) , FibroGen (FGEN) , ACADIA Pharmaceuticals (ACAD)  . Big pharma hurtin' badly, once more. Merck (MRK) , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Eli Lilly (LLY) being liquidated, much like tech. Media mixed message. Disney (DIS) lower. Ag equipment: Deere (DE) up large on an upgrade, though Caterpillar (CAT) still experiencing weak fundies. Consumer staples broadly lower. Campbell Soup (CPB) excelled on a relative basis, though. (T)FANG a source of funds. Tesla (TSLA) , Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) a collective mess. In individual stocks: DuPont (DD) , new high. Radian (RDN) up another up 2%. Oaktree Capital (OAK) not so mighty. Apple hit. Here are some value-added contributions on the site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on " Not What Bulls Wanted to See ."  2. "Meet" Brett Jensen on rotation.  3. Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins
What's in, what's out and who should thrive in the new political landscape.
I try through rigorous analysis to identify sectors and companies with intermediate-term prospects that are deteriorating relative to consensus expectations, isolating those areas and corporations with secular growth prospects that are reduced by a changing business landscape. Examples of stocks that I am short that may fit this description include Disney (DIS) , Coca-Cola (KO) and Apple (AAPL) . But this morning I want to look at current and possible shorts -- a shopping list, so to speak -- by iden

Thomson ONE Piper Jaffray Healthcare Conference (Day 1 of 2) - 11/29/16 - 11/30/16 New York, NY
The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.23 to $47.29 on conflicting OPEC reports. Gold climbed by about $12 per ounce to above $1,190 (it had been up $18 earlier). Agricultural commodities were mixed: Wheat down $0.02, corn flat, soybean up $0.12 (continuing its monster run in price) and oats down $0.06. Lumber up $3. Bonds were lower in yield and higher in price. The 10-year yield dropped by five basis points and the long bond by three basis points. The 2s/10s spread declined by three basis points as the yield curve flattened. Municipals flat-lined. Closed-end muni-bond funds recovered a bit. Junk bonds slightly higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fun (BGB) was flat. Banks got clipped. But brokerages were slightly higher. Insurance profit-taking after a big run. Retail was on sale with Nordstrom (JWN) , Home Depot (HD) , Best Buy (BBY) , Target (TGT) and JC Penney (JCP) weak. Autos lower. According to J.D. Power, incentives are at near-record levels. Not good for profits/margins. Biotech down 1.5% (Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) off a beaner each), but spec biotech (e.g. Intrexon (XON) , Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA)  , SAGE (SAGE)  , Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) ) weak. Big pharma continues to weaken, led by Merck (MRK)  , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY)  , Eli Lilly (LLY)
Small-caps could also benefit from abating tax-loss selling.
The market is amazingly resistant. The Russell Index is killing the shorts -- up, again. Brokerages (Goldman Sachs (GS) , Morgan Stanley (MS) ) don't quit. Agricultural commodities are ripping higher: wheat up $0.05, corn up $0.04, soybeans up $0.06. The Bad Biotech is down 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Gilead Pharmaceuticals (GILD) are leading downside stocks. Alphabet (
With the election resolved, biotech could be ripe for consolidation.
I would look for GILD to try to stabilize in the $70-$80 area before a more durable uptrend.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar continues to stregnthen. The price of crude oil erupted, up by $2.47 to $45.70 on OPEC rumors, non-substantiated. Gold up $2. Ag commodities: wheat up $0.05, corn up $0.05, soybeans up $0.08 and oats up $0.04. Lumber down $2. (Homebuilders were weak, led by DRH downbeat report) Bonds rebounded modestly in price. The 10-year note and long bond yields were down by 1 basis point. The 2s/10s spread contracted by 1 basis point to 122 basis points. Municipals recovered half of yesterday's losses. Closed-end muni bond funds recovered all yesterday's losses. High yield was quite strong, likely on the heels of higher oil prices. iShares iBoxx $ High Yid Corp Bond ETF (HYG)  up $1.10 and SPDR Barclays Capital High Yield Bnd ETF (JNK)  up $0.45. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  up $0.27 to $14.67. I would sell the strength. Banks, insurance (Hartford Financial (HIG) still up on the day!) and brokerages lagged but are trading well off the day's lows. Old media broadly higher led by Mr. Softee. Auto stocks lagged. Retail reversed the last three to four days' enormous strength, as I hoped for. I sold out of my long exposure (excluding JC Penney (JCP) yesterday). Home Depot (HD) (down $4) and Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS)  (down $6) were downside features on light guidance. Consumer staples gained despite currency strength. Biotech was disappointing. Large cap leaders Allergan (
