Why Xerox Is a Value Play Real Money Pro($)

After an earnings miss and sharp selloff, Xerox represents a value opportunity. 
A put spread using an at-the-money long strike and out-of-the-money short leg looks attractive.

Tech -- As in Wreck Real Money Pro($)

"I try not to kid myself. You know, I don't mind romancing someone else, but to fool yourself is pretty devastating and dangerous."

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

Stocks slid sharply in the final hour to finish at the day's lows after a real roller coaster of a day! Booyah! The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by 63 cents to $45.96. Gold climbed by $17 to $1,267. Silver rose by 30 cents. Agricultural commodities: wheat +1.50, corn +7.00, soybean flat and oats -2.25. Bonds rose in price, declined in yield. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by three basis points to 1.83% and the long bond by only one basis points to yield 2.68%. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. The high-yield market showed little price movement. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB), up earlier in the day, closed down a dime. Banks are at the lows of the day. I double my XLF short today. JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Citigroup (C) were down by about a half a beaner, while Bank of America (BAC) slid by 25 cents. Brokerages were lower. Morgan Stanley (MS) was down 30 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) was off about $2.50. Life insurance, the object of my disaffection, got schmeissed with dollar-plus losses for MetLife (MET), Lincoln National (LNC) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) also was lower by a similar amount. Retail stocks were broadly lower, led by Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY), Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW). Short Nordstrom (JWN) was off 65 cents. Old media sank, led by IBM (IBM), down $3.35, and Microsoft (MSFT), down $1.30. Auto stocks held well, with a good gain for Ford (F), up 45 cents. Energy stocks fell despite a higher commodity price. Schlumberger (SLB) was down $1.15 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) off 80 cents. Biotech was only slightly lower. Allergan (AGN) was down a beaner. Ag equipment was under pressure, with Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) down about 1% each. Media was mixed, though Disney (DIS) was down $1.20 after a rich premium deal for Comcast (CMCSA) to acquire DreamWorks (DWA) was announced. (T)FANG was lower, save Facebook (FB), which was up nearly $8. NOSH saw all components lower. CRABBY components all were lower as well. Apple (AAPL) was a leader on the downside, off $3. Short/sell, don't hold.  Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was lower after earnings (I'll review tomorrow). Some good stuff on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the worst over for pharma.  RevShark is running with the bulls.  Tim Melvin on Carlyle Group (CG) and its tons of cash.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on playing earnings-related volatility of Amazon (AMZN), LinkedIn (LNKD) and Expedia (EXPE).  Daniel "Oil Vey" Dicker on Hess (HES) over Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD). 
This earnings season continues to disappoint, and technology names are leading the downward charge.
Why sell companies that will benefit from a weaker dollar?

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

Inside day in the markets, at least as of 3 p.m. ET (in the time that it took to write "Takeaways," the S&P rose by seven handles). Ss (S&P) over Ns (Nasdaq). The U.S. dollar weakened after the Fed's comments. Crude oil advanced by $1.13 to $45.17. Gold rose by $4.60 to $1,248. Agricultural commodities gave back on price. Wheat -3.25, corn -3.25, soybean -3.00 and oats +2.50. Lumber +9.20. Bonds erupted higher in price, lower in yield after above. That is why I re-shorted Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) at $23.73. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by an outsize seven basis points to 1.86% and the long bond by five basis points to 2.70%. Municipals were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds advanced ... again. Big mistake selling them earlier in the year on my part! The high-yield bond market moved higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) paused and was flat. Banks experienced some early strength, sold off on the Fed's comments and are beginning to rally from the lows. Brokerages were stronger. Life insurance was unchanged despite the rise in bond prices. Retail was stronger across the board. Former long Macy's (M) was up 45 cents and short Nordstrom (JWN) was up 55 cents. Energy stocks rallied with crude oil. Schlumberger (SLB) rose $1.63 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up $1.00. Some positive dividend moves within the space. Old tech was quiet, though IBM (IBM) was up $1.60. Biotech was down most of the day, but experiencing a late day rally. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down $1.70. My biotech basket of speculative stocks still appears to be rolling over. Consumer non-durables thrived, as Kimberly-Clark (KMB) bounced from recent weakness and Procter & Gamble (PG) was up 55 cents. Short Coca-Cola (KO) was fractionally higher. Autos were dead flat. Ag equipment was higher, with Caterpillar (CAT) up $1.15 and Deere (DE) up $1.50. (T)FANG continues weak, led by AMZN, down $9, and Tesla (TSLA), down $2.60. Trade of the Week short iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI) continues to rally, up 30 cents. NOSH was mixed; Starbucks (SBUX), a favorite short, continues to decline, down 72 cents. It appears to be breaking down from the earnings report last week. Mine is a minority view. CRABBY was helped by Radian Group (RDN), which had an earnings beat and some good credit data (more to come later in the week). In miscellaneous names, Twitter (TWTR) was a twit and Potash (POT) rallied by 40 cents after Monsanto (MON) was upgraded yesterday. Apple was down between $6 and $7 most of the day. Here are some good columns from RealMoneyPro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the market, which is impervious to Apple.  Apple mea culpa (I respect his candidness) from Mark Sebastian.  Shad Gad "And the Pharoahs" on how to beat the pros.  James Passeri on Mr. Ackman Goes to Washington.  Jack and Jim on Twitter. 
Low volume, small trading ranges and small differences between the opening and close are the norm.

Observation of the Week Real Money Pro($)

This is my most important take of the week: "Growth isn't growing"-- at least relative to expectations.
The tech giant offers a nice yield even as management works to re-energize its rate of growth.
