My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened again. The price of crude oil dropped by another 60 cents (same as yesterday) to $46.35. Gold is souring and seems to have a meeting at $1,300; down another $11.40 to $1,318. Ag chemicals continue their schmeissing: wheat -4, corn -5, soybean -17 and oats -4. Bonds flat lined. The yield on the 10-year note and long bond showed no change. The 2/10s spread rose by one basis point to 78 basis points. Banks (weird divergence against bonds/slope continues, but less so than yesterday) and brokers are still the world's fair. Insurers are rallying. I'm adding to HIG. I'm down to tag ends in MetLife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) . Non-taxables (munis) and junk bonds sold off small. Biotech are down small. Retail is conspicuously weak -- the worst-performing S&P group. I'm adding to JCP, but it's an investment and not a trade. Autos and energy are mixed. Old tech is broadly lower. Consumer staples are reversing (maybe it's the EC decision against Apple?) yesterday's gains as our currency firms. I recently added to my Coca-Cola (KO) short (a conservative and low-risk way to short Mr. Market). Media is lower. Ag equipment got hit on a worsening ag commodities picture. (T)FANG's five components are lower on the day. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on Apple.  Dueling Apple views by Tony Owusu.  Ed Ponsi (Scheme) keeping it real.  "Meet" Bret Jensen on two interesting speculative biotech names.  Boring, according to the righteous Rev Shark.
Costco rocks, Coke could use sugar and ugly stocks can 'taste' good.
The leadership is quite stark.
The energy-drink maker is sitting on a potential emerging-market payday.
It offers investors a great brand, strong income and reasonable price appreciation potential ahead.

Today's Good, Bad and Ugly Real Money Pro($)

Radian (RDN) is looking pretty radiant after AIG (AIG) announced plans after the bell yesterday to sell rival private-mortgage-insurance business United Guaranty to Arch Capital (ACGL) for $3.4 billion. The deal highlights the PMI sector's value. Banks continue to edge higher, possibly due to a promise of higher interest rates. I've been buying more Hartford Financial (HIG) on that theme. Oil and energy products are up, although energy-company stocks are doing little. Perhaps the sector has exhausted itself by a recent run higher. Brokerages look good, rising on n
Retail-related stocks have climbed mightily over the past two days, and there's a great deal of optimism regarding the U.S. consumer's state -- but I believe that such views aren't entirely justified.
Ball's merger with Rexam creates the world's largest beverage can manufacturer, and creates newfound pricing power that could hurt the consumer.
It's the subtle, yet powerful benefit of long-term investing.
Lots of energy names facing the potential for lower prices.
