Doug's Morning Musings Real Money Pro($)

Let's start the day today with a roundup of news and observations:

Biding My Time Real Money Pro($)

Let me emphasize that trading around positions is just that -- it is not a cosmic statement on the markets.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil ramped up to $46.06, up $1.40, proving most pundits wrong both on the downside early this year and the upside recently.  As I have warned, few commodities forecasters are very rigorous in their projection process.  Me, I had a general and strong view that OPEC was dissolving and prices would drop last October. Today, I don't know.  Gold was up $12.40 to $1,277. Agricultural commodities: wheat -2.50, corn -3.25, soybean -5.25, oats -4.25. Lumber down 50 cents. Bonds rallied. The 10-year note yield dropped by two basis points to 1.74% and the long bond by three basis points to 2.58%. Municipals were well-bid, but closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was down six cents to just below $14. Banks fared well for most of the day but turned red in the mid-afternoon. Small losses, though. Financial Sector Select SPDR ETF (XLF), the object of my recent disaffection (I am short), was off 26 cents. Insurance generally declined, though Lincoln National (LNC) was flat. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) continued to lose ground, down nearly $2 again today. Brokerages got hit; I covered too early this week. Private equity stocks continue to lag. Retail was the story of the day -- it was a nuclear holocaust. Nordstrom (JWN), my short, was down by $3.40. Macy's got whacked by $5.60. Others were a mess, too. Old tech was weak, led by IBM (IBM), down a beaner. Energy stocks failed to rally in the face of the commodity rise, but losses were contained. Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) were off fractionally. Auto stocks were lower. Ford (F) was off 20 cents and General Motors (GM) was down 27 cents. They seem to be rolling over after recent gains. Media was weighed down by the Disney miss. DIS was down $4.65 and Comcast (CMCSA) was off 60 cents. Consumer staples were hit across the board. Agricultural equipment performed well in a relative sense -- flat. Biotech was another group that gave a false signal yesterday. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down 2%. Valeant (VRX) was down 5.5% and has no rally. My former speculative biotech basket was rotten to the core with large losses. Celgene (CELG) was down $2.50 and Gilead Sciences (GILD) down $2; I believe they are both value traps. (T)FANG was higher most of the day but got hurt with chatter over antitrust issues with Alphabet (GOOGL), down $7. AMZN is a monster, up another $12. Tesla (TSLA) was up small, though Netflix (NFLX) broke down $2.80. NOSH was unappetizing; Nike (NKE) was down $2, O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) was off $6, Starbucks (SBUX) declined $1.20 (I am short and the shares appear to be rolling over; I might add to this position on any strength) and Home Depot (HD) slid $3. CRABBY's six components were lower.  In terms of individual stocks, Apple continues to stink up the joint (down nearly a beaner -- it remains in liquidation mode). Short or sell it, don't hold it! Twitter (TWTR) up flat, Potash (POT) continues weaker, Radian Group (RDN) is back down and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) declined 85 cents and is getting back to my buying levels. Long fav DuPont (DD) slipped 30 cents. iShares MSCI United Kingdom (EWU), my short Trade of the Week, was down by only four cents. I remain short. Here are some great columns that appeared on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on how to win!  Gary "The Sun Will Come Out To" Morrow writes about Facebook (FB) -- he is not high on the stock but is a buyer on weakness.  The stock, like Amazon, continues to be a beast! Jared "Not Bob" Woodard features the latter company in his post.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins sees issues at Perrigo (PRGO).  Jeremy LaKosh on GM as a value play. He makes some solid points, but I remain short the name.   Tony Owusu sees a silver lining at Disney.
Although share price growth may be sluggish, the near-5% dividend pays investors to wait.
Think of what dividends can do.

Peak Pick-Up Trucks? Real Money Pro($)

Auto Week is reporting about another headwind that could contribute to my "Peak Autos" thesis ... "Peak Pick-Up Trucks"!
Fundamentals. These are weak and weakening. Peaks are plentiful, payroll growth is moderating, real GDP is weak and China is a big question mark. Valuations. These are elevated by historic standar
The energy rally is a good example.
And it's hard to get excited about the second quarter, too.
