Opportunistic Long in GOOG Real Money Pro($)

As a sign of a flexible and opportunistic approach to trading (I was short the shares earlier in the week), I just took a small long rental in Google (GOOG) at $631.

Long Green from Google Short Real Money Pro($)

"They call you Lady Luck.
The key takeaway yesterday and over the last few months is that the tape is expressing strong deflationary forces amid the continuing rout in commodities (e.g., copper at a six-year low, gold down another 1%-plus today) and signposts of slowing growth in China (where debt has risen from $7 trillion to $28 trillion over the last seven years), Europe (weak data overnight) and, arguably, in the U.S.  Importantly, overall volume has expanded on down days. On Thursday, the NYSE and Nasdaq volumes were up 19% and 12%, respectively, compared to the 20-day averages. Strong bid on bonds. The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) rose by more than $1.50 on Thursday and bond-equivalent sectors did well both absolutely and relatively. Amazon (AMZN) becomes the next Google (GOOG), as accelerating unit growth and the force of better margins have improved meaningfully and have had a compounding impact over the last two quarters. Back in October 2014, I wrote a cautious column on Amazon that helped to explain the weakness in the shares up to January 2015. But the facts have changed and so have I. That said, I would neither be long or short Amazon, a stock I have not traded in since 2000! I remain short of Google, which is now $25 lower than my average short cost basis. I likely will take in some of the short for a nice and quick profit today. The shares of strong balance sheets are outperforming shares of weak balance sheets.

With many strategists and market participants ignoring a narrowing market, just as they might have in early 2000 and in the fall of 2007, I am raising my net short exposure this morning.
