Problems abound for this industrial-supply wholesale firm.
A series of ugly announcements could be on the way for embattled SHLD.
Thus far a tepid bounce following two awful trading sessions. Spiders (up about 50 cents a share on the day) are more than a dollar off of their morning highs. The U.S. dollar was weaker against the euro, spurring a bit of a rally in the defensive staples space. The yield on the two-year U.S. note is up a basis point to 0.965%, the 10-year is flat at 2.20% and the 30-year yield is up by a basis point to 2.92%. The yield curve is flat today. Municipals were dead flat, though closed-end municipal bond funds were well-bid. High yield was junky by a tad. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) got hit but halved its loss late in the day.  Among the commodities: crude down by 16 cents, natural gas up 13 cents, gold up $13.80 . The ag space is weak, with wheat down $5.75, corn down $2.75, soybean down $3 and coffee down by 1%. Lumber is up, though. Financials were stronger after recent weakness, with money centers materially trumping regionals. I have been adding to Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC), JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB) in the recent market selloff. (T)FANG was mixed, with Google, now Alphabet, (GOOG) and Tesla (TSLA) higher. NOSH components all up on the day, led by Starbucks (SBUX). Old tech was mixed, led by Microsoft (MSFT), which got an upgrade.   Media and transports were conspicuously weak; in these spaces I am short United Parcel Service (UPS), Disney (DIS) and Comcast (CMCSA). All are on my Best Ideas List.  Modest rise for Apple (AAPL). I updated my bearish view today. Retail was well-bid, led by Kohl's (KSS) and Lowe's (LOW). Check out my 10 Lessons from Wall Street.  And here is my 11th!   I bought back Oaktree Capital Gro
The Fed' s rate increase shouldn't affect the sector's  2016 growth.
The ETF gives investors access to consumer stocks while keeping costs and emotions under control.
Conference calls are the game film of our business, and these two retailers show how watching the film can make you money.
