Also, utilities and crude should be on your radar.
But Amazon's miss is an ugly reminder of how unhealthy this market is.
Stocks are looking better, but I'm still skeptical.
Forget China or oil prices, weak profits are hurting stocks.
The obligatory decline has occurred today, after a 90-handle move in the S&P Index over a two-and-a-half-day period. Futures near the low of the day. Not surprising to anyone. The contrary would have been a continued rise. The damage, thus far, has been relatively contained. The U.S. dollar was weaker today (1.0838 against the euro). Crude oil -- the object of algos and machines -- traded $1.52 lower after Friday's nearly 10% advance. Gold rallied by almost $10. Silver was 18 cents to the better. Wheat up a nickel, corn down a penny, soybeans up three cents, oats are flat. Treasuries essentially were unchanged across all maturities. Municipals unchanged. HIgh yield was junky -- iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was down 50 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was down 17 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) got hit after a better Friday. Energy stocks are lower on crude's move; that includes my favorite shorts, Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM). Banks are lower, but off the day's bottom. Regionals are weaker than money centers. "Gun to my hand" the sector may have made a short-term bottom. I've been watching the turn in JPMorgan Chase (JPM) from lows. Housing-related stocks got schmeissed -- mortgage insurance and home builders in particular. Staples were flattish, though Kimberly-Clark (KMB) a downside feature. Retail trying to rally, though Macy's (M) gave back Friday's ramp. Fertilizers got smacked, among them Monsanto (MON) and Potash (POT). (T)FANG mixed, with Google, now Alphabet (GOOG) and Tesla (TSLA) lower. Netflix (NFLX) continues weak. Amazon (AMZN) crosses above my short cost basis of $600 after it was much lower early last week. NOSH was lower, but O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) was up $6. CRABBY was lower, all five components. Twitter (TWTR) was down on management moves. A work-out. I added small to several long-term invest

Jim "El Capitan" Cramer and Jack Mohr do a fine job this morning of outlining the situation at Twitter (TWTR).
The last became the first today.  I outlined my technical rationale for thinking that yesterday's "noon swoon" might be an important market bottom.  History is my guide, not anecdotes.  An abundance of uncreative, consensus and "groupstink" in the business media today. Too many that I won't even repeat some of the uninformed comments about yesterday's  short covering (that is almost always the start of a legit rally). Yesterday's dip of death and "noon swoon" was (based on my desk contacts) machine- and algo- driven. Gamma hedgers and risk parity strategies were especially active in the drop.    Ss (S&P) over Ns (Nasdaq) and Rs (Russell). The U.S. dollar was stronger, though well off of the day's best. Taxable government bonds were weaker -- the 10- and 30-year yields were four basis points higher. High yield, as seen with iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG), up 66 cents, and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK), up 17 cents, reversed recent losses. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was flat, and I added. Municipals were lower, slightly, and closed-end municipal funds recovered a good portion of yesterday's loss, which seemed to have been inspired by the group being a source of funds. Oil was up $1.40. Schlumberger (SLB) had a two-cent beat and announced a large buyback, boosting shares a bit, while Exxon Mobil (XOM) responded well to the rise in the commodities prices. I had covered most of my short yesterday. Natural gas was up four cents. Agricultural commodities were mixed. Wheat was up three cents, corn down three cents and soybean up a nickel. Lumber was up $1.60. Banks were weak, owing to oil-related credit concerns -- more on that next week. I am not as concerned as the market with regard to oil credits. I added to Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) today. Retail paid off. Macy's (M), Best Buy (BBY), Bed, Bath and Beyond (BBBY) and Wal-Mart (WMT) were all strong. M continued the technical breakout mentioned yesterday. Consumer staples were surprisingly strong given the dollar, though I suppose the selloff in the dollar buoyed late-day action. Old Tech was a tad better, with a dead-cat bounce from IBM (IBM) after Wednesday's schmeissing.  (T)FANG was mixed. Amazon (AMZN) was up $3.25 and Google, now Alphabet (GOOG), rose $8-plus, but the others were flat to down. Netflix (NFLX), the object of my disaffection this morning, fell more than $5. NOSH saw gains from three of the four stocks. Nike (NKE) was relatively strong. CRABBY was mixed, with fractional moves. Starbucks (SBUX), the stock that nearly everyone owns and likes, beat by a penny but the top line was weaker than expected. Chinese comps were disappointing (up 5%), overall comps were in line. Guidance was less than expected by consensus. I remain short but small after yesterday's cover when the shares were down $3. I expect a poor response to today's after-the-close release. The stock is down nearly $3 after closing up $2-plus in the regular session. American Express (AXP) beat but guidance is poor. Another Buffett holding with a leaking "moat" by virtue of losing its brand premium and value. Twitter (TWTR) continues its modestly better action. Potash (POT) was weak in a stronger sector, where both Monsanto (MON) and Culp (CFI) finished higher. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was flattish.  I spent the last year shorting
Could the Ethereum platform be the death of Internet giants like Amazon?
Seventeen reasons why NFLX doesn't deserve a $51 billion market cap.
Revenue growth was 23%, but that's not stunning given the company's market cap. One of the main issues going forward is whether NFLX can expand margins even with overseas growth. Subscribers pay with local currencies, but Netflix's largely dollar-based content costs are increasing. International subscribers were stronger and Netflix's overseas-penetration rate is still low (in the mid-single digits, but probably going to about 10% in the next three or four years). But we don't know how much marketing money the company will have to spend in its new non-U.S. markets. Domestic subscriptions are now at about 45 million, but that missed analyst expectations. Guidance on subscription growth was also weak for the next quarter, lowered by 20%. The company is attracting competition, and it releases little in terms of viewership numbers vs. subscriber numbers. Netflix has been consumer friendly from a pricing standpoint, underpricing its product to date. But price increases planned for May and October could result in a tick-up in domestic churn, while the company is inching ever closer to a saturation point. If margins don't increase, then NFLX's growth approximates revenue growth. But the company faces huge investments and higher content costs this coming year. Fourth-quarter EBITD declined slightly (by $2 million). That means $339 million of incremental revenues produced a minus $2 million in incremental EBITD. Ergo, there was operating leverage. This has happened for five quarters in a row. Interest costs quadrupled to $29 million from a previous $7 million. This reflects NFLX's cash burn. Cash-flow coverage of interest is only a little over 3x, so I'm surprised Netflix hasn't done a huge
