Telecoms are a mixed bag, right now, with some flashing sell signals.
After last week's losses, they are being reassessed on the fly.
The bears and the bulls are finely balanced heading into a busy period. 
Old-time correlations among stocks and sectors are meaningless.

Observation of the Week Real Money Pro($)

This is my most important take of the week: "Growth isn't growing"-- at least relative to expectations.
Growth stocks are likely to go down, no matter how well the companies are doing.
Let this be a lesson in correctly identifying directional excess.
CEOs decide it's best not to go nuts to the upside.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

The U.S. dollar strengthened modestly. I discussed our currency this morning.  The price of crude oil dropped by 77 cents and closed at $43.40 Natural gas was flat. Gold was quiet, losing $3.60 to $1,250. Agricultural commodities trade as though they are HFT (high-frequency trading) influenced! -- wheat -11.00, corn -11.50, soybean +9.25 and oats -5.50. Lumber was flat. Bonds were lower, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down 65 cents. The 10-year U.S. note rose by two basis points to 1.86% and the 30-year by three basis points to 2.69%. Municipals were flat. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. High yield was down. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose nicely, by eight cents to $13.72. Though down on the day, banks held up well considering the recent strength; however, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) was down by 74 cents. I should have stayed with yesterday's Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short. I will revisit as I expect a correction of plus or minus 5% in these names post haste. Brokerages gave back recent gains. Morgan Stanley (MS) was down 15 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) down $2.00 Retail was lower, with Wal-Mart (WMT), Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) all down, but by less than a beaner each. Under Armour (UA) was an upside standout. Old tech, except IBM (IBM), which was up $2.62, was lower, led by Microsoft following its earnings report. I will dissect Mr. Softee tonight and I am awaiting the conference call in a few minutes. My feedback will be discussed tomorrow. Ag equipment was lower, with Caterpillar (CAT) down 72 cents and Deere (DE) down $1.71. Staples continued their schmeissing -- is the safety trade is over? Good sale earlier in the week in former long Procter & Gamble (PG), which was down 74 cents; it is down almost $3 since my exit two days ago. Best Ideas short Coca-Cola (KO) continues to give gas and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) got whacked by $3.50. Media was lower, but Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS) only by a half a buck or so each. Biotech was a standout; iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) rose by a bit over 2%, led by Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD). Former spec holding Intrexon (XON) was down $10 after a negative Seeking Alpha report. I expect more big losses ahead in secondary and tertiary biotech names. (T)FANG got declawed, led by Alphabet and its after-hours miss. NOSH was ouch, led by the SBUX miss. CRABBY was also in a rotten mood. In individual names, fav DuPont (DD) was a standout on the upside, rising 60 cents. Potash (POT) was up a dime, and Twitter (TWTR) was unchanged. Here are some great contributions on today's RealMoneyPro site: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer sings Bob Dylan (The Times They are a Changin').  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on how to play MSFT and GOOGL.  Dick Arms on the market -- always a good read.  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno likes McDonald's (MCD) on the short side; I like this contrary technical take. (The stock is loved by everyone!)  Interesting observation from Brian Sozzi on the message on emerging growth markets delivered by PepsiCo (PEP) and Coca-Cola. 
Pullback in those 3 is causing most of the market pressure.
