Oil Vey! Real Money Pro($)

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting article out about the fact that the largest oil companies' debts have hit a record high. This mirrors a piece I referred to yesterday from Zero Hedge.
The U.S. dollar is stronger. The price of crude oil fell by $1.33 to $46.77. Gold slipped by $17 to $1,329 and appears likely to threaten support at $1,300 to $1,310. Agricultural commodities. wheat -2, corn -1.5, soybean -9, oats flat. Lumber -7 on weak housing data. Bonds are down small. The 10- and 30-year note and bond yields are unchanged. So was the 2s/10s spread (80 basis points). Municipals and junk flat lined, as did Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) and closed-end muni bond funds. Banks remain the world's fair.: Brokerages are holding in well. Same goes for insurance, but my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) is a laggard. Biotech down by about 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG) are leaders to the downside, with speculative biotech taken to the woodshed, too. Profit-taking continues in retail. Autos are mixed. Energy stocks nonplussed by oil's descent, thus far. Old tech is mixed, but IBM (IBM) is a downside feature. Media is down small. Ag equipment is weaker (I dissed CAT this morning, added to my short) Staples are lower on a stronger currency. In individual stocks, my longs Radian Group (RDN) and DuPont (DD) are doing God's work! Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) is trading better, but it is an odd stock and it's mostly difficult to understand its daily moves. (T)FANG all lower, but not materially. Here are some valuable contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on oil and the little guy.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins sees Babe Ruth -- i.e., Facebook (FB) -- striking out.  Skip Raschke on frowning (and shorting). Rev Shark is waiting for Godot.  Roger Arnold on a rate rise by the Fed (Fischer-style). 
Emerging-market stocks look weak technically, as we can see in the recent "double top" for the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (^EEM). Such moves often precede energy-price drops. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries might be losing control of the oil markets again. The overall stock market seems ripe for a correction. Will it be Sell in September or Get Dismembered?
A bunch of oil stocks have gotten ahead of themselves and are particularly vulnerable if crude stalls.
The company will be able to fund all capital expenditure projects.
It shouldn't be too long before production and price trends balance out.
A close over $82 would reverse the trend back to the upside.
And what were analysts thinking in upgrading Continental Resources and Pioneer Natural Resources?

I recently mentioned that energy stocks were extended and trading out of sync with lower commodities prices.
