My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

I have a series of meetings this afternoon and tomorrow morning so I want to get "Takeaways" out early today.
In response to a number of emails, I am maintaining my Home Depot (HD) short, which is my Trade of the Week.

The Long and Short of It Real Money Pro($)

"I don't feel Tuesday...Tuesday has no feel." --
Check out the ripple effect on Home Depot, Domino's, American Express and others.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened -- now for about three days in a row. Crude oil dropped by $2.06 to under $52 a barrel. Gold rose by $11. Ag commodities: wheat up $0.04, corn up $0.15, soybeans up $0.10 and oats down $0.02. Lumber down $6.60. Bonds rallied, with yields about 4 basis points lower. The 2s/10s spread contracted by 2 basis points. Municipals were well bid (closed-end muni-bond funds were quite strong), along with taxables. Junk bonds were flat in price and yield. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by another $0.04. Banks held firm, but brokerages and life insurance was lower. Autos unchanged. Energy got whacked with a two-beaner drop in oil. Old tech was mixed. But, Best Ideas short IBM (IBM)   tumbled by nearly $2 a share. Ag equipment -- the object of my disaffection -- were lower with both Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) weak. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer highlighted the bullish case for Caterpillar today.  Retail continues to be a land mine. Big pharma rallied led by Merck (MRK) and Eli Lilly (LLY) . Biotech was stronger -- plus 2% led by Allergan (AGN) (again!) and thanks to a high-profile M&A deal. Consumer staples suffered from Coca-Cola (KO) and Procter & Gamble (PG) research downgrades. I added to Campbell Soup (CPB) , however. (T)FANG, again popular -- continued so but far less than the strong Thursday-Friday period from last week. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: 1. My dachshunds were partial to Jim "E l Capitan" Cramer's column that highlighted the pet/vet business. 2. Ben "Godlfinger" Cross on confidence. 3. Jeremy Lakosh on the
I am shorting Home Depot (HD) at $134.03.
