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.
Because even when things go wrong, bull markets go up.

The Burden of Truth Real Money Pro($)

"In such a spirit on my part and on yours we face our common difficulties. They concern, thank God, only material things. Values have shrunken to fantastic levels; taxes have risen; our ability to pay has fallen; government of all kinds is faced by serious curtailment of income; the means of exchange are frozen in the currents of trade; the withered leaves of industrial enterprise lie on every side; farmers find no markets for their produce; the savings of many years in thousands of families are gone ..."
Awaiting Yellen, but some churn wouldn't hurt.

'It's Different This Time' Real Money Pro($)

Sector and group performance is quite interesting, and conspicuous, today. Financials, especially among money-center banks, have had collateral, absolute and relative damage off the disappointing HSBC (HSBC) profit outlook downgrade.

My Trade of the Week Real Money Pro($)

The Nasdaq is a very extended and overbought index. Same applies to Apple's (AAPL) shares, which is heavily weighted in the index. I continue to see speculative excesses in a number of parts of the Nasdaq (Biotech, social media, etc.) The Morgan Stanley reduction in its profit forecast for Tesla (TSLA) is meaningful -- and the brokerage's support for the stock (after the downgrade to earnings) is equally ludicrous. The Philly Fed miss is yet another sign of slowing domestic growth. I have other reasons, but I wanted to rush this trading idea out.

There's already a big pile of cash in the garage.
The two apparent failures are in fact opportunities.
