Earnings season isn't doing much for the market.
A series of questions denigrated an amazing company.
Fight the urge to get in while it's hot. Long-term owners should consider locking in gains.
The U.S. dollar strengthened (as shareholders of Kimberly Clark (KMB) rudely found out today). The price of crude oil suffered but off of the day's lows. Gold fell by $3.40. No oomph for now in precious metals. Ag commodities weakened. Wheat down $0.011, corn down $0.375, soybeans up $0.775 and oats down $0.06. Lumber was flat. For the first day in the last four or five days, bonds were lower in price and higher in yield. Intermediate and long yields rose by two to three basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose by one basis point to nearly 92 basis points. Municipals got hit but closed end muni bond funds were slightly higher in price. Junk was flat. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) diverged, up $0.08. Banks continued to wander higher and now sit at multi month highs. Insurance advanced. Long fav Hartford Financial (HIG) , +1%. But so were my shorts, Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) , up a similar amount. Brokerages mixed. Diversified financial doing better -- led by long fav Oaktree Capital (OAK) . Old tech behaved like new tech -- iShares S&P NA Tech. Sec. Idx. Fd. ETF (IGM)  , Comcast (CSCO) , Microsoft (MSFT) markedly higher. As mentioned above, autos were in second gear today. Biotech continues to disappoint. Allergan (AGN) weaker and value traps Gilead Sciences (GILD) and Celgene (CELG) flat to down. Spec biotech got hit. Energy stocks flat-lined. Retail was on sale, again JC Penney (JCP) conspicuously weak (down $0.25). (T)FANG the world's fair Only Netflix (NFLX) flat. Here are some value added contributions on the site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer says yuck to AT&T (T) - Time Warner (TWX) proposal. 2. Jeremy LaKosh chimes in on the merger. 3. Bret
News of big combinations will get the week off to a good start, but whether they'll propel the market out of its trading range is another story.
Investor sentiment is somewhere between cautious and neutral, not at the sort of extreme condition that suggests a sustainable reversal to the upside. The 10-day CBOE put/call ratio is in the middle of the recent range (1.00). This week's Barron's cover story highlights a bullish big- money outlook. The McClellan Summation Index, which as mentioned last week serves as an intermediate-term measurement, is still not in oversold. Key large-cap stocks are at support levels -- e.g., Merck (MRK) , Microsoft (MSFT) , Visa (V) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) . Let's watch them closely. In terms of group action, financials and energy are holding up the averages while technology is losing some momentum. Nevertheless, the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) hasn't made a high in over a month even as bond yields rise and the price of oil is back to resistance. The U.S. dollar has strengthened considerably, potentially weighing on the large-weighted multinational group. This morning S&P futures are up 0.5% in the early going.
It finishes strong, but still stuck in a range.
I am focusing on stock picking, as the indices are still stuck in a trade range.
