The Latest Region-al News Real Money Pro($)

Regions Financial (RF) is giving some long-term targets this morning as part of the company's investors' day.
Nov 09, 2015 | 7:36 AM EST
RF was downgraded from Buy to Hold, Deutsche Bank said. $11 price target. Valuation call, as the company is already pricing in a near-t...
To the moon, Alice. China treads where the European Central Bank and the Fed already have in its rate cut this morning. Bulls emboldened and shorts on suicide watch. (Hat tip to Art Cashin) Panic short covering for the second day -- e.g., athenahealth (ATHN) on an earnings beat and upgrade, according to my institutional contacts. Not a short standing ... or vocal. A modest pullback midday was denied and we are at session highs. The US dollar is very strong  and the euro is at multi-month lows. Retail weak, inlfuenced by cautious comments from Skechers (SKX), VF Corp. (VFC),  Under Armour (UA) and, of course, Wal-Mart (WMT) previously. Even biowreck gets a reprieve today , with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) up by more than 2%. General Motors (GM) is the "world fair," hitting a new multi-month high. (A mistake in selling, as I posted earlier this week.) Apple (AAPL) up $3 despite a Citi move to take off its Focus List. Financials are extending the week's gains.  Banks up and so are life insurance in the face of rising yields. Notable weakness in Tesla (TSLA). Crude lower but energy stocks stable. Bonds were weak all day, municipals slightly lower in price. High yield is much better bid for a change. Gold weak, surprisingly in light of more cow bell. CNBC Blather -- 23 bulls and no bears today. I substantially lowered my gross exposure

Sold Regions Financial Real Money Pro($)

I updated my take earlier this week on Regions Financial (RF), cautioning about the rise in operating expenses and nonperforming assets.
I'm offering to partly sell (at slightly above the market price) four regional-bank stocks that aren't on my Best Ideas list now -- BB&T (BBT), Enterprise Financial Services (EFSC), MB Financial (MBFI) and Regions Financial (RF).
Regions Financial (RF) today reported a penny-per-share beat for the third quarter vs. expectations, with EPS coming in at $0.21 vs. analysts' $0.20 consensus estimate.

Today's Game Plan Real Money Pro($)

I will be mostly updating my thoughts about specific companies today -- Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B), IBM (IBM), Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB), BB&T Corp. (BBT), Regions Financial (RF), Harley-Davidson (HOG) and a few others.

One More Time ... With Feeling Real Money Pro($)

Bank of America (BAC): $16.50 to $17 Citigroup (C ): $55 to $56 JPMorgan (JPM): $65.50 to $66.50

Why I Wouldn't Chase Banks Now Real Money Pro($)

In response to a number of emails, I would not chase bank stocks now nor would I sell the stocks -- unless the timeframe is quite short term. Let the sector back down on profit taking after the huge move.

Banking on Banks Real Money Pro($)

Citigroup (C) is a standout again today in the money-center-bank universe, and Regions Financial (RF) and Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB) are standouts in the regional-bank segment.
