My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened modestly after two days of strengthening following the Fed's remarks. Crude oil fell by 40 cents to $48. Nat gas was flat. Gold was down $1.60, recovering from the day's lows. Agricultural commodities: wheat -4.75, corn +2.50, soybeans -14.25 and oats flat. Lumber -9.20. Bonds rallied in price. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note down by one basis point to  1.83% and the long bond down two basis points to 2.62%. Municipals were up small but closed-end muni bond funds rallied nicely from the recent carnage. High yield was flat. Banks flat-lined and I remain cautious. Deutsche Bank (DB) is under $17, again. A concern. Insurers were down large fractions. Brokerages were mixed. Retail was up and down, but nothing major. My three shorts are Starbucks (SBUX), up a dime, Nordstrom (JWN), up 20 cents, and Foot Locker (FL), down 55 cents. Old media and old tech did little. Energy was unchanged, though Schlumberger (SLB) caught a recommendation from the Buy Side. SLB was down 20 cents and Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up 20 cents. Autos continue to roll over. Ag equipment was strong, with Deere (DE) up 60 cents and Caterpillar (CAT) up 75 cents. Consumer nondurables were slightly better, despite my protestations! Biotech couldn't hold its morning gains, though iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) nonetheless was up $2.60. Allergan (AGN) and Valeant (VRX) -- the object of my recent disaffection -- were lower, off $4.10 and $1.10, respectively. My former speculative biotech package was up marginally.  (T)FANG was mixed, with Tesla (TSLA) down $3, Facebook (FB) down $1.10, Amazon (AMZN) down $3 and Netflix (NFLX) up $1.75. NOSH was weighed down by O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY), down $2. CRABBY was settled, with little price change on the day. In terms of individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) was up $1.60 (continuing its Berkshire-inspired rally from last week -- yawn!), POT was up 60 cents on the Monsanto (MON) takeover news, and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was down 50 cents. Here is some good stuff from Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on McDonald's (MCD) and PepsiCo (PEP).  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins chimes in on gold.  Bob Lang on "The Bear Market."  Rev Shark on something strange in the neighborhood (and it isn't ghosts).  Bret Jensen on two promising biopharmas.
U.S. companies with big overseas presence are getting hit.
With signs of a longer-term breakdown, order some June puts or a July put spread.
The major chains are beating the S&P 500, but SHAK and others lag.
As we begin the countdown clock toward the market's close for the day, we have a few companies reporting after the bell. These include Agilent (A), Radiant Logistics (RLGT) and VOXX International (VOXX), a one-time high flier in consumer electronics that has seen its shares tumble more than 45% over the last year. Even so, the company's commentary on the in-car infotainment and audio market should prove useful for those interested in Harman International (HAR) and potentially Mobileye (MBLY)
Despite Wall Street's doubts, it should be a core portfolio holding.
If you aren't used to this crash-and-dash pattern by now, then it's time you came to your senses.
