My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rallied for a second day in a row, rising $1.50 to almost $51. Gold flat, no bounce. Agricultural commodities: Wheat up $0.07, corn down $0.05, soybean unchanged, oats up $0.05. Lumber up $1. Bonds got schmeissed but traded well off the day's lows (as the 10-year yield touched 2.5%). The 10-year and long-bond yields rose by 9 basis points. The 2s/10s spread rose by another 5 basis points to 130 basis points. Muncipals were lower. Junk bonds got hit badly, despite the rise in crude oil. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  rose $0.08. Banks were powerful to the upside. I reshorted at reasonably good prices in the afternoon, after covering my small rental shorts in pre-market trading earlier. Insurance stocks flew. Long Hartford Financial (HIG)  , which rose. Brokerages so strong -- Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) (up $7). Retail was strong led by Target (TGT) , Foot Locker (FL) , Nike (NKE) and JC Penney (JCP) (long). Autos were the "world's fair." I still have tag end short positions. I expect the upside move to get over-done short term, and I will reload on the short side. Energy stocks up, but small relative to the commodity. Old tech was clobbered. International Business Machines (IBM) , Intel (INTC) , Cisco (CSCO) (short and working nicely) and Microsoft (MSFT) got bashed along with the entire sector. Biotech was down 2%. Allergan (AGN) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) were weak. New lows Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRX) . Spec weak again (Portula Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) , Sage (SAGE) , Intrexon (XON) , FibroGen (FGEN) , ACADIA Pharmaceuticals (ACAD)  . Big pharma hurtin' badly, once more. Merck (MRK) , Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Eli Lilly (LLY) being liquidated, much like tech. Media mixed message. Disney (DIS) lower. Ag equipment: Deere (DE) up large on an upgrade, though Caterpillar (CAT) still experiencing weak fundies. Consumer staples broadly lower. Campbell Soup (CPB) excelled on a relative basis, though. (T)FANG a source of funds. Tesla (TSLA) , Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) a collective mess. In individual stocks: DuPont (DD) , new high. Radian (RDN) up another up 2%. Oaktree Capital (OAK) not so mighty. Apple hit. Here are some value-added contributions on the site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on " Not What Bulls Wanted to See ."  2. "Meet" Brett Jensen on rotation.  3. Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins
I try through rigorous analysis to identify sectors and companies with intermediate-term prospects that are deteriorating relative to consensus expectations, isolating those areas and corporations with secular growth prospects that are reduced by a changing business landscape. Examples of stocks that I am short that may fit this description include Disney (DIS) , Coca-Cola (KO) and Apple (AAPL) . But this morning I want to look at current and possible shorts -- a shopping list, so to speak -- by iden
The U.S. dollar was weaker. The price of crude oil dived. Crude down $1.91 to $45.17 a barrel. Gold down $2 after yesterday's strength. No biggie. Ag commodities lower: Wheat down $0.05, corn down $0.09, soybeans down $0.10 and oats down $0.04. Lumber down $7. Bonds are slightly higher on the day after early morning weakness. The yield on the 10-year note and 30-year bond are down by 1 to 2 basis points. The 2s/10s spread is flat at 121 basis points. Banks are mixed -- I made a series of short rentals. Brokerages strong -- Goldman Sachs (GS) still the "world's fair." Insurance is higher, save my long Hartford Financial (HIG) ! In miscellaneous finance, The Mighty Oak (Oaktree Capital (OAK) ) looks more healthy than in recent weeks. But I don't know why! Retails is mixed but long JCP hitting a double. Autos stocks slightly plus. Biotech reverses yesterday's weakness. Allergan (AGN) and Celgene (CELG)  are winners. Big pharma continues to stink up the joint. Oil stocks, loved by the media on the "shows" yesterday, are downside leaders. Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) weaker. Consumer staples are lower. Short Coca-Cola (KO) tripping over itself. But long Campbell Soup (CPB) on the positive side. Consumer discretionary showing strength. My short Starbucks (SBUX)  is up on the day. Media better. Comcast (CMCSA)  up $1.70, an upside standout. Old tech is mixed. International Business Machines (IBM) weaker (after being strong yesterday) and Microsoft (MSFT) an upside leader. Ag equipment down hard the second day in a row. I have been adding to my Caterpillar (CAT) short (down $0.80). Deere (DE)  down $1.25. (T)FANG is mixed with Tesla (TSLA) lower (down $4.50 on my Best Ideas List, short) and Alphabet (GOOGL) up double digits. Amazon (
