Long 'Trade of the Week': GM Real Money Pro($)

This week's long "Trade of the Week," based on better-than-expected July car sales, is again General Motors (GM), which I bought at $31.60.
Big news out of General Motors (GM), which reports July U.S. auto sales climbed 6.4% versus the consensus estimate of up 1.4%.
And a bit about fitness IPOs.
The market got physical yesterday with strength in cyclicals and commodities. However, there was little follow through today. Gold is an unmitigated disaster. Even as a contrarian I see no reason to bottom fish. The bond market behaved very well despite the better GDP print and calls for a September fed funds rate rise by many. Closed-end municipal bond funds again traded slightly better. Junk bonds traded better, even though there were some conspicuous energy-related credit disasters. Market bent this morning but didn't break. Equities ignored more evidence of Greece's "extend and pretend." Dip buyers still abound. A dichotomy in banks exists, with money centers in the red but regionals in the green. MidSouth Bancorp (MSL), which I highlighted this morning, is the world's fair (+3%) after a couple days of weakness. General Motors (GM) has been edging higher the last two days. Ford (F) is behind and I likely will add on any further weakness. The Mighty Oak had two good back-to-back days after its earnings report. Earnings for Potash (POT) were basically in line. More in the next few days. Procter & Gamble (PG) has become a template for the "old economy." It's a value trap. Shares of Apple (AAPL) have been conspicuously weak all week. I added to my short today. Tomorrow's volume should break the yearly low record. Fore!

GM Rallies on Berkshire Talk Real Money Pro($)

General Motors (GM) is rallying on a Financial Times column that suggests the company would be a perfect fit for Berkshire Hathaway (BRK), which already is long the name.
The energy and specialty insurance groups offer some interesting ideas.

Buying Google and More GM Real Money Pro($)

Besides my SPY and QQQ short-covering this morning, I've re-established trading a long rental in Google (GOOG) at $623 and added to my long of General Motors (GM) at $30.82.
Some companies are benefiting, but they're the exception.
With recalls and other issues in the rearview, shares could make a big move down the road.
