Apple (AAPL) rebounded from Wednesday's uncharacteristic loss and most of the Horsemen on the Nasdaq continued strong. The redirection "from old tech to new tech" that I noted earlier in the week and again by Jim "El Capitan" Cramer yesterday. Altisource Residential's (RESI) strength and news were good for the home team. Bond yields rose and that trend has continued this morning, with the yield on the 10-year U.S. note approaching 2.05%. (I shorted the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) at around $129.75 to hedge the interest rate risk in my closed-end municipal bond funds). The most important company news was not cited by the business media: weakness in Bank of America (BAC) shares. After the close, UBS confirmed my 10K filing concerns that could result in an adver

Late Day Observations Real Money Pro($)

Caterpillar (CAT) looks like it has a rendezvous with $80 ahead of it. CAT remains on my Best Ideas List (short). For now, the market bends but doesn't break. I will stick to my notion of a "topping process." I am a $90.75 buyer of Deere (DE). I am working on a thesis why the U.S. auto manufacturers are destined for a period of underperformance and a protracted period of market share loss from foreign exchange weak exporters and from alternative manufacturers (e.g., Tesla (TSLA)) that are improving the "driving experience." The price of crude oil, as I feared, looks like it is destined to make a double bottom and to retest recent lows (-$2.37/barrel on the day). I missed shorting some more Apple (AAPL) as the shares never traded at my level of $131. I mentioned Ocwen (OCN) traded higher on word of a large naked short put trade. What happens is that the market maker on the other side is effectively short (long puts) and is forced to buy stock on a delta-adjusted basis to "even out." New low on TLT on the day and down by about $0.50 from short sale (hedge against muni funds). New daily low on IBM (IBM). Bank of America (BAC) breaks $16, avoid. All five of my regional bank holdings are higher today. Ali Blah Blah has missed out of the Nasdaq rip. Looks lower. (Remember, BABA is on my Surprise List.) I have raised my net short exposure today -- up to 15% net short. Is Warren Buffett becoming fearful while most others have become greedy? Stay tuned to Becky's interview with The Oracle on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Monday.

A Challenge in Munis? Real Money Pro($)

As I suggested earlier this week, I have hedged out the interest-rate risk in my lengthy list of closed-end municipal bond fund investments.
Discount historical norms and think of Peter Pan's Never, Never Land.
Those anxious to call a top should stay on the sidelines.
The bulls regained their lost momentum.

Munis Still My Favorite Real Money Pro($)

This week I added considerably to my long in closed-end municipal bond funds, reasoning that the 50-basis-point climb in the 10-year Treasury note in January and February could mark a short-term peak in yields.

Bonds React Favorably to FOMC Real Money Pro($)

Bonds have reacted favorably to the FOMC minutes,  with TLT gaining about $1 after the release.

I've Added to Munis Real Money Pro($)

As promised, I added across the board to closed-end municipal bond funds after the recent weakness.

I Will Add Again to Munis Real Money Pro($)

Yesterday I aggressively added to my closed-end municipal bond funds.
