My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened modestly. I discussed our currency this morning.  The price of crude oil dropped by 77 cents and closed at $43.40 Natural gas was flat. Gold was quiet, losing $3.60 to $1,250. Agricultural commodities trade as though they are HFT (high-frequency trading) influenced! -- wheat -11.00, corn -11.50, soybean +9.25 and oats -5.50. Lumber was flat. Bonds were lower, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down 65 cents. The 10-year U.S. note rose by two basis points to 1.86% and the 30-year by three basis points to 2.69%. Municipals were flat. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. High yield was down. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose nicely, by eight cents to $13.72. Though down on the day, banks held up well considering the recent strength; however, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) was down by 74 cents. I should have stayed with yesterday's Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short. I will revisit as I expect a correction of plus or minus 5% in these names post haste. Brokerages gave back recent gains. Morgan Stanley (MS) was down 15 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) down $2.00 Retail was lower, with Wal-Mart (WMT), Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) all down, but by less than a beaner each. Under Armour (UA) was an upside standout. Old tech, except IBM (IBM), which was up $2.62, was lower, led by Microsoft following its earnings report. I will dissect Mr. Softee tonight and I am awaiting the conference call in a few minutes. My feedback will be discussed tomorrow. Ag equipment was lower, with Caterpillar (CAT) down 72 cents and Deere (DE) down $1.71. Staples continued their schmeissing -- is the safety trade is over? Good sale earlier in the week in former long Procter & Gamble (PG), which was down 74 cents; it is down almost $3 since my exit two days ago. Best Ideas short Coca-Cola (KO) continues to give gas and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) got whacked by $3.50. Media was lower, but Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS) only by a half a buck or so each. Biotech was a standout; iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) rose by a bit over 2%, led by Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD). Former spec holding Intrexon (XON) was down $10 after a negative Seeking Alpha report. I expect more big losses ahead in secondary and tertiary biotech names. (T)FANG got declawed, led by Alphabet and its after-hours miss. NOSH was ouch, led by the SBUX miss. CRABBY was also in a rotten mood. In individual names, fav DuPont (DD) was a standout on the upside, rising 60 cents. Potash (POT) was up a dime, and Twitter (TWTR) was unchanged. Here are some great contributions on today's RealMoneyPro site: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer sings Bob Dylan (The Times They are a Changin').  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on how to play MSFT and GOOGL.  Dick Arms on the market -- always a good read.  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno likes McDonald's (MCD) on the short side; I like this contrary technical take. (The stock is loved by everyone!)  Interesting observation from Brian Sozzi on the message on emerging growth markets delivered by PepsiCo (PEP) and Coca-Cola. 
With GE's earnings Friday, all eyes will be on the progress in its biggest-ever aquisition and how soon it can scrap its SIFI status. 
This stock doesn't appear done going up.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened a bit today. Consumer nondurables felt the pain of the currency rise and the KO miss.  I sold my long Procter & Gamble (PG) and took it off my Best Ideas List today.  PepsiCo (PEP), Kimberly-Clark (KMB) and KO all were weak. Crude oil rallied despite fundamental news that could have taken it lower. It was $1.43 to $42.51 in what looks like a massive short squeeze. Nat gas was flat. Gold was unchanged at $1,253. Agricultural commodities were through the roof following days of strengthening prices: wheat +12.50, corn +6.25, soybean +22.00 and oats +10.50. Food inflation lays ahead, Janet Yellen. Bonds were lower in price and higher in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down $1.05. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by four basis points to 1.82% and the long bond by the same amount to 2.63%. Municipals flat-lined, but the sprint for yield resulted in more gains for closed-end municipal bond funds. High yield improved. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 27 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 11 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three pennies to the good. Banks were tentative midday but are at their highs for the day now. Brokerages are up, with Morgan Stanley (MS) up 50 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) up $2.90. Life insurance responded to the drop in bond prices as reinvestment opportunities are seen expanding, though rates remain very low. Energy stocks were higher with the commodity advance. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $1.80 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) up $1.13. Retail was mixed, with short Nordstrom (JWN) the strongest to the upside (up $1.45). Wal-Mart (WMT) faltered a bit. Prior long Macy's (M) was up 40 cents. Media was mixed. Disney (DIS) was up 70 cents but Comcast (CMCSA) was down 85 cents. Ag equipment, led by Deere (DE), which was up $2.25, was again strong. However, Caterpillar (CAT) slowed down after recent gains. Old tech was led to the upside by IBM (IBM), rising $2.65 from pressure earlier in the week. Biotech was unchanged as Allergan (AGN) rallied and so did spec Intrexon (XON). Nothing much in my former Biotech Basket to record. Autos continued ahead for the third day in a row after a Barron's cover story. Ford (F) was up a quarter and General Motors (GM) up 40 cents. (T)FANG was led by Tesla (TSLA) and Amazon (AMZN). Netflix (NFLX) had a dead-cat bounce. NOSH was uneventful, as was CRABBY. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) warmed up by 55 cents and Potash (POT) poked above $18 after yesterday's strong gain. DuPont (DD) was hit by profit taking and was down 75 cents. Very little trading today as I marvel at the unrelenting advance. Here are some great columns from RealMoneyPro today: Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on how to play higher crude oil prices.  Carley Garner on livestock prices.  Tim Melvin on energy-exposed banks.  RevShark sees slim long pickings.  The Divine Ms. M on market rotat

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.22 to $41.00. Nat gas was up by sixteen cents. Gold rose by $18.70 to $1,253. Silver was up by 70 cents. More upside action in agricultural chemicals, with Potash (POT) up $1.20. Wheat +11.50, corn +3.50, soybeans +28.50 and oats +5.25. Lumber was +6.40. Bonds dropped a bit in price, and were slightly higher in yield. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by one basis point to 1.78% and the long bond by a similar amount and yields 2.59%. Municipals down slightly; closed-end muni funds' rapid advance dissipated late in the day ... finally! High yield was well-bid. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 36 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 15 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three cents lower; I am out of the name now. Banks exploded to the upside, led by JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Comerica (CMA), all up by over a beaner. Life insurance advanced again, though my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) lagged. Brokerages were up, led by Morgan Stanley (MS), up 64 cents, and Goldman Sachs (GS), up $3.65. Retail was quiet. Home Depot (HD) was a downside leader, off $1.50. Lowe's (LOW) was weak, too. Old tech got IBM'd, with IBM (IBM) down $8.50. Staples were broadly higher, led by long Procter & Gamble (PG), up 50 cents. Old media was mixed. Comcast (CMCSA) was lower but Disney (DIS) led the parade. Autos were strong, continuing the Barron's push over the past weekend. Ford (F) was up 15 cents and General Motors (GM) up 65 cents. Oils responded to better commodity pricing. Schlumberger (SLB) was the league leader, up $1.70. Biotech and the rest of the Nasdaq were conspicuously to the downside. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down 1.66%. Allergan (AGN) is still recovering (up $4.50) and my former biotech basket got hit, but not materially so. (T)FANG weakness was also obvious, though Facebook (FB) had a late-day kick save. NOSH was mixed. So was CRABBY. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) was a poor actor. On the other hand, fav long DuPont (DD) was strong, up $1.15. Here are some great posts on RealMoneyPro today: Some oil vey from Jim "El Capitan" Cramer.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on some overnight trade ideas.  And also from Tim, some SPY-ing.  RevShark on
