My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

An inside day in the markets. The U.S. dollar strengthened for the second day in a row. Yesterday's crude oil reversal lower continued today, down 53 cents to $41.23. Natural gas got smushed, down by seven cents. Gold was lower by another $21 to $1,227 after it was down by $12.60 on Wednesday. After yesterday's monster move higher in agricultural commodities, we settled down today: wheat -1.75, corn +0.50, soybean -9.50 and oats flat. Lumber was down $4.60. Bonds reversed yesterday's gains, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down 63 cents. The 10-year and the 30-year barely moved. Yields were up by one to two basis points. Municipals flatlined. High yield was dead flat, but BGB slipped by 15 cents. Banks continue as the world's fair; I will have more on the sector in the next day or two. Brokerages were again better. Morgan Stanley (MS) was up 29 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) rose $1.06. Life insurance continued to rise, though my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was a laggard. Autos were flat after a spectacular day yesterday. Consumer nondurables reversed yesterday's weakness, though my short Coca-Cola (KO) drifted lower. Old tech had small minus signs. No biggie. Biotech, an area where I am seeing a lot of bottom fishing, came up short, showing little price movement. Maybe the continued Theranos controversy hurt the space. Bill Miller at Legg Mason is buying Valeant (VRX), helping to stabilize the name. Allergan (AGN) stunk up the joint for the third day in a row, down $4.   My former biotech basket was mixed, though spec Intrexon (XON) continues to roar higher. Retail was mixed. My long Macy's (M) was down 67 cents and my short Nordstrom (JWN) was down 69 cents. (T)FANG was modestly higher, but my short Tesla (TSLA) was down $2.67. NOSH was mixed nuts. CRABBY was hurt by BGB but helped by Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC). Potash (POT) was lower on a downgrade, Radian Group (RDN) continues to inch higher, AAPL was flat and Twitter (TWTR) was up 15 cents on a lot of technical excitement. DuPont (DD), my favorite long large-cap, was up 38 cents. Starbucks (SBUX), a short, was a bit lower despite the CEO's protestations. Here is some good stuff on RealMoneyPro: El Capitan flying high on Delta.  Ben "Goldfinger" Cross on gold. Bobby Lang chimes in on Goldcorp (GG).  Tim Melvin does a filter on good dividend payers.  RevShark on dips.  Divine Ms. M is, well,

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

Another day in which what was bad -- cyclicals, energy and banking -- is good again. The U.S. dollar strengthened -- that, too, is not supposed to be good for equities. Crude oil reversed from 2016 highs established earlier in the day. closing down by 38 cents to $41.79. Natural gas climbed by three cents. Gold was down $12.60 to $1,249. Monster move higher in agricultural commodities: wheat +0.25, corn +11.00. soybean +20.5 -- to the moon, Alice.   Bonds climbed, with iShares 20-Year+ Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up 50 cents. The 10-year and the 30-year barely moved. Yields unchanged. Municipals were slightly higher. High yield prospered, with iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 60 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 25 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a nickel to a new recent high of $13.90. Banks were the world's fair on a slight JPMorgan Chase (JPM) beat against much-lowered expectations from a few months ago. Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) are on tap later this week. Notably, Deutsche Bank (DB) dead-catted by 8%. Brokerages ripped higher on better-than-expected capital markets activity within the JPM report. Morgan Stanley (MS) was up more than a beaner and Goldman Sachs (GS) was up $5. Life insurance stocks also strong. Autos rebounded, with General Motors (GM) up $1.05 and Ford (F) up 25 cents as investors are willing to pay more for a dollar of earnings that are peaking. Defensive consumer nondurables were anything but defensive as the market continues to rotate to more aggressive names. Staples were hit, including Best Ideas List long Procter & Gamble (PG).  Old tech was higher, but less than the market. IBM (IBM) continues its skein after an upgrade a few days ago. Modest gains for Intel (INTC), Cisco (CSCO) and Microsoft (MSFT). iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up 1.9% despite the Theranos news and the credit release at Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX). Allergan (AGN) was lower. My former biotech basket of speculative stocks was mixed. Celgene (CELG), Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), Intrexon (XON), Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) and Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) were strong. Media joined the fun. Comcast (CMCSA) was up only 20 cents but Disney (DIS) was up two beaners. Retail was higher, but not materially so after the weak data. (T)FANG with the exception of a weak Facebook (FB) was higher on the day. But there was distinct underperformance against the averages. NOSH was mixed and also underperformed. CRABBY was led by C. In individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) was up $1.60 and Twitter (TWTR) rose almost 5%, while Potash (POT) and Radian Group (RDN) also moved higher. Limited trading today. Here is some great stuff on RealMoneyPro today: El Capitan on CSX  (CSX) and Jeremy LaKosh on the same subject.  RevShark's always-informative market takes.  Carleton English on the bears' dilemma.  Mike Norman's I told you so.  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" does the
