A beginning-of-December look back at our portfolio through the lens of capital preservation.
There's too much good out there.
Sudden moves are typical of the end of a credit expansion cycle.
Breathtaking advance in the early going and a slow dribble over the balance of the day (albeit from elevated levels). Win for the bulls today and the week. Is KaloBios Pharmaceuticals (KBIO), which has seen its share double today, the next Iomega ... or is it the next K-tel? Taxable bonds gave back some in price. Municipals were up modestly in price and lower in yield. I continue to use the strength to reduce my muni bond exposure. HIgh yield was mixed,  though Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) hit another low. The U.S. dollar strengthened and we are approaching the old and recent highs. Crude is modestly better but energy stocks are lower. I remain short Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB); both are on my Best Ideas List as shorts. SunEdison (SUNE) hit a new low. Jimmy and I chimed in on this one on The Street yesterday.  Gold stinking up the joint, again. (T)FANG -- Tesla (TSLA), Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google, now Alphabet (GOOGL) -- strong, though TSLA lower on recall. NOSH -- Nike (NKE), O'Reilly (ORYL), Starbucks (SBUX) and Home Depot (HD) -- is tasty, too, led by Nike. Banks are mixed. (I noted earlier that the yield curve has flattened recently.) Consumer staples are stronger, ignoring the strength of the dollar. Retail is mixed, with home improvement, led by Home Depot and Lowe's (LOW), the shining stars. I am a buyer of Best Buy (BBY) on weakness if the market ever corrects!  I am planning to make Macy's (M) a large holding based on my assessment that it is an M&A candidate. Autos still well-bid. Old tech is stronger, led by Intel (INTC) and IBM (IBM). Biotech reverses yesterday's gains, led by Allergan (AGN) and Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX). UnitedHealth Group (UNH) is trading up after yesterday's guidance lower. Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) sells off sharply -- down at this writing almost 9% -- after the Centers for Disease Control reports E-Coli linked to 26 restaurants. I am eyeing Morgan Stanley (MS) and Goldman Sachs (GS) still. I did very little on the trading and investing sid
Prudence suggests refraining from buying.
