Today's Trades Real Money Pro($)

I have added to my BB&T (BBT), Radian (RDN), General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) longs.

A Few Random Observations Real Money Pro($)

I am constantly surprised, at least over the last four quarters, how investors and the media initially respond euphorically to Caterpillar's earnings. I am staying short as the second-half outlook has deteriorated further based on recent dealer statistics. GM's $0.10 shortfall was from a higher effective tax rate and weak South America region results. I am a $36 buyer. BB&T's (BBT) results were about 2 cents lower than expected, but all from higher loan loss reserves. I am a buyer at $38.10 on today's weakness. Staying short small position in Facebook (FB). Shorted last night after hours at $85.05 and covered some down $2.50 from there.
The automaker's shares are a genuine bargain at these levels.
A big day of earnings and economic data is on tap.
They matter -- except when they don't.
And a busy reporting day is on tap for Thursday.

On Becoming a Car Guy Real Money Pro($)

One of my favorite subscribers, Fish, expressed surprise that I have turned positive on the automobile industry in the comments section -- in response to my purchase of Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) this afternoon.

Starting Long in Ford and GM Real Money Pro($)

For some time I have been concerned about the U.S.dollar's adverse impact on the domestic automobile industry's sales and profits.
