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

Market continues to run like the Energizer Bunny, completing a very strong month of July. Gold continues to shine following the weak second-quarter GDP print, which implies "lower for longer" and more cowbell from the world's central bankers. . Staples, excluding Coca-Cola (KO) , that are benefiting from a weak currency have revived today. The two pillars of technology -- Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) -- ring the register for investors. This is aiding PowerShares QQQ ETF's (QQQ) absolute and relative strength vis a vis the other indices. Herbalife (HLF) continues to rally after its agreement with authorities. Or maybe Ackman/Pershing Square is just getting squeezed by Carl Icahn! Schlumberger (SLB) , despite only a modest rise in crude oil today (after crude was down 17% for month of July) , is a standout. To many, Twitter (TWTR) is showing surprising strength --up 2% today -- following Thursday's drubbing. I added small on Thursday and in the after-hours on Wednesday. I like the upside/downside but I have no illusion that the near-term outlook is promising as management's heavy lifting lies ahead, and it will take time. A multi-month high for Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) despite a nearly 20% drop in the price of crude oil this month. The Bad Domestic growth is weak, with 2Q real GDP up 1.2% -- well short of expectations. Gilead Sciences (GILD) , a favorite value play in biotech, continues to fall, breaking $80 a share. Talking head "carpet sweepers" are nowhere to be seen on this one!. Life insurance stocks, plagued by the absence of investing alternatives in a low-rate setting, continue to weaken. Potash (POT) continues to sell off after weak top-line performance and poor forward guidance. I reviewed the quarter this morning. The Ugly My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) , my project this weekend, is stinking up the joint after an earnings shortfall caused by catastrophe losses and a weak auto book. My preliminary read is that there
Facebook (FB) at $121.70 General Motors (

I added small to my short of the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) in premarket trading at $113.45 a share.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar again strengthened -- typically a market-unfriendly development. The price of crude oil rallied back from yesterday's loss, gaining 40 cents to over $45. Gold is down $15, breaking toward $1,300, where it broke out to the upside. Agricultural commodities again are under pressure: wheat -7, corn -6, soybean -19 and oats flat. Bonds are weaker. The yield on the 10-year note increased by two basis points to 1.58% and the long bond by three basis points to 2.30%. The 2s/10s spread at 86 basis points -- no change. Municipals are down small and closed end muni bond funds are mixed. Junk was better bid, but not materially so. Banks are up modestly. Same for brokerages (Morgan Stanley (MS) saw weak action off a big beat, same as Goldman Sachs (GS) yesterday) and insurance. Old tech was broadly higher, led by Microsoft (MSFT) . Retail is up. Autos are better. Energy, along with the commodities, are higher, with Schlumberger (SLB) a standout, up almost a beaner. Ag equipment is ignoring the schemissing of ag commodities prices and is flat to slightly lower. Media is weak on the heels of Disney (DIS) downgrade. Biotech is ramping, up three percent. Speculative biotech is stronger, rebounding from recent weakness. (T)FANG resumed leadership, with all components strong. My Trade of the Week, shorting Facebook (FB) , is not working out. In individual securities, Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) is an upside standout, rising more than 2.5%. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: The market is expensive, but JIm "El Capitan" Cramer sees good signs.  Mark Sebastian on Twitter (TWTR) .  I have recently added. Carley Garner believes the VIX is cheap. I cant agree! Jonathan Heller on avoiding a value trap.  Rev Shark on momentum.

Shorting More QQQ Real Money Pro($)

With Microsoft (MSFT) buoying the Nasdaq this morning, I'm adding for the first time in a while to my very small short of the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) .

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar is stronger. Crude oil is breaking down, off $2 to $45.35. Smaller draw of supplies is the reason. Gold is down by $6 to $1,361. Bonds are flat. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note is unchanged while the long bond is down one basis point. The 2s/10s spread is unchanged at 80 basis points. Municipals and high yield are flat. Closed-end municipal bond funds continue to climb in price. Banks are solid, but are off the highs modestly. Brokerages are up a bit. Life insurance is terrible; no bounce after a sustained drop. Retail is lower, with my short Foot Locker (FL) down, though my other short Nordstrom (JWN) is higher. Old tech is quiet. Energy stocks are getting hit. I covered too early a week ago! Biotech is down a tad. Auto stocks are up modestly after their schmeisssing. Staples are down small save for PepsiCo (PEP) on an earnings beat. Media and ag equipment are doing nada. (T)FANG is mixed. Nothing special there. In individual stocks, TWTR, DD, RDN and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) are up modestly. Apple (AAPL) is up two bits but still looks weak. Same for Starbucks (SBUX). Here are some value-added columns from our hard-working contributors: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, who is probably deeply ensconced in his garden on Long Island, writes about Amazon's (AMZN) all-time high. Jim observes that this is occurring while retail is not folding. But retail has already been a land mine, so I am not sure whether the non-Amazon retail space is safe to invest in yet. "Meet" Bret Jensen on five stocks for the second half.  Roger Arnold on conflicting economic narratives. "Stormin'" Mike Norman sees a pullback in gold.  Chris Laudani on overvalued staples. This was also a theme of mine back in late May.
