Besides favorable technical signals, recent housing reports bode well for both names.
The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.23 to $47.29 on conflicting OPEC reports. Gold climbed by about $12 per ounce to above $1,190 (it had been up $18 earlier). Agricultural commodities were mixed: Wheat down $0.02, corn flat, soybean up $0.12 (continuing its monster run in price) and oats down $0.06. Lumber up $3. Bonds were lower in yield and higher in price. The 10-year yield dropped by five basis points and the long bond by three basis points. The 2s/10s spread declined by three basis points as the yield curve flattened. Municipals flat-lined. Closed-end muni-bond funds recovered a bit. Junk bonds slightly higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fun (BGB) was flat. Banks got clipped. But brokerages were slightly higher. Insurance profit-taking after a big run. Retail was on sale with Nordstrom (JWN) , Home Depot (HD) , Best Buy (BBY) , Target (TGT) and JC Penney (JCP) weak. Autos lower. According to J.D. Power, incentives are at near-record levels. Not good for profits/margins. Biotech down 1.5% (Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) off a beaner each), but spec biotech (e.g. Intrexon (XON) , Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA)  , SAGE (SAGE)  , Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) ) weak. Big pharma continues to weaken, led by Merck (MRK)  , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY)  , Eli Lilly (LLY)
People are circling back to such names as Ulta and Starbucks.
A bit of a pullback is expected, but the underlying data are strong.
The market remains resistant. Brokerages and banks hang in strongly. The Russell Index is killing the shorts -- up ($0.75), again. Retail is experiencing another leg to the upside. JC Penney (JCP) , Home Depot (HD) , Lowe's (LOW) , Best Buy (BBY) , Target (TGT
The U.S. dollar is flat today. The price of crude oil rallied smartly -- by nearly $2/barrel to $47.60. The price of gold was listless, up a beaner. Agricultural commodities: wheat up $0.02, corn up $0.03, soybeans up $0.24 (!!), oats down $0.04. Lumber is flat. For a change, bonds are quiet. The yield on both the 10-year note and long bonds showed little price change. As mentioned earlier the 2w/10s narrowed by 3 basis points. Municipals were a bit lower. Junk bonds found a bid, however, and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  was up $0.06. Banks continued to trade well, small gains on top of large gains over the last month. Insurance very strong, though brokerages had some modest profit taking. Retail was mixed -- Home Depot (HD) and Nordstrom (JWN) lower while Foot Locker (FL) and Best Buy (BBY) were higher. JC Penney (JCP)  weaker. Oil stocks were the world's fair -- with broad-based gains. Schlumberger (SLB) and Exxon Mobil (XOM) ++. Autos lackluster, still underperforming ... down to tagends in General Motors (GM) and Ford 
And as always, there are too many retailers.
The U.S. dollar, as discussed above, continued to rip higher against the euro. I am concerned. Mark Grant is concerned. The market is not concerned. The price of crude oil (down $0.20) settled lower after yesterday's robust gains. Gold fell $9 as it continues to break down -- closing in on $1,200. Ag commodities: wheat up $0.07, corn up $0.04, soybeans up $0.05 and oats up $0.02. Lumber up $7 following the big housing number this morning. Bonds schmeissed ... iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT)  down $1.50. The yield on the 10-year and 30-year notes and bonds rose by about 5 basis points. The 2s/10s spread steepened by 2 basis points to about 125 basis points. Municipal bond funds traded lower. Closed-end funds got hit. High-yield was flat, though Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by $0.05. Banks continued to be the "world's fair" but to this observer it is getting heady and panicky. My finger is on the short Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) button. But not yet. Insurers outperformed, but my long Hartford Financial (HIG) under-performed. Brokerages up big again. Very over-bought. Autos mixed. Energy stocks, some profit taking. Retail strong after Wednesday's weakness. Led by Best Buy (BBY) and Home Depot (HD) . Biotech was marginally higher, led by Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG) . Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) still in the regulatory cross hairs. Big pharma down -- but barely. Old media led by an analyst upgrade in Microsoft (MSFT) . Consumer staples plagued by a strengthening U.S. currency. Investment short, Coca-Cola (KO) , can't get out of its own way ... a good thing. Consumer discretionary was mixed. (T)FANG had a good second day in a row -- but stocks off their highs as Netflix (NFLX) turns red. Apple (AAPL) a bit lower after a great day yesterday. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: 1.Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on banks. I am less positive than Jimmy -- believing that it is late in the financial stock move. 2. Rev Shark on market manipulation.  3. Homie
People love to consume, and it's consumption that will keep the expansion going and ultimately drive equity prices higher.
