There's a lot more to making a profit than just the stock price.
Unlike some banks, the mega-retailer is not too big to fail.
The online retailer can sell the concept of serving as an anchor tenant in the places that suffers from its dominance.
Facebook is in for some backing and filling, while Twitter tells a cautionary tale.
Futures control prices and companies have to see how things are playing out.
How has this retail giant fallen? Let us count the ways.
I outlined my near- and intermediate-term outlook in parts one and two of this morning's opening salvo. I moved in dramatic fashion from a relatively large net long exposure taken on a week ago Wednesday and Thursday to a small net short exposure at day's end. I got more aggressive after 3 p.m. I scaled into a SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) short all day, from premarket to regular trading session (as high as $194.40) A Stanley Fischer rally? Algos sure like what he said. I view his verbiage as hedged and a non-event. The market, for the second day in a row, defied the weakness in crude oil prices, which were down $2.11 to $31.51 a barrel. Ns (Nasdaq) over Ss (S&P index) and Rs (Russell index). A strange day in light of weaker crude oil and the deteriorating price action in high yield. The U.S. dollar weakened against the euro. Gold up another $12.30 -- its sixth or seventh day in a row higher, I believe (more on gold tomorrow). Agricultural commodities saw wheat down three cents with corn and soybeans flat. Lumber was unchanged. Bonds were up by two to four basis points in yield, depending on maturities. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) was down about 40 cents. Non taxables were weaker, with iShares National AMT-Free Muni Bond (MUB) down by 0.2%. But muni bond funds were higher. Strange. High yield was junky;  iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was down 42 cents and SPDR Barclays High-Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was down 22 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) held recent gains Banks were flattish, but they had a monster run on Friday -- up 5%. They were featured on the cover of Barron's. Citigroup (C) is the strongest name. Selected financials were strong. Blackstone Group (BX), despite a Goldman Sachs downgrade, reversed bigtime. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was conspicuously strong. Both BX and OAK are on my Best Ideas List.  But brokerages -- such as Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) -- were hit with profit- taking. Life insurance, too, was death, including Lincoln National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) Retail showed large gains, led by Wal-Mart (WMT);  I eliminated a trading long rental for a large percentage gain). Macy's (M), Best Buy (BBY) and Bed, Bath and Beyond (BBBY) reversed substantially to the upside. Utilities were up and highlighted in my Diary.   Staples were mixed, despite the weakening U.S. currency. The energy sector suffered under the weight of a large decline in crude oil. Biotech recovered, led by Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), Mallinckrodt (MNK), and my spec fav, Intrexon (XON). Autos had a dead-cat bounce. (T)FANG resumed its strength, though Amazon (AMZN) was down $12. Tesla (TSLA) and Facebook (FB), which hit a new high, were features. NOSH was tasty, fueled by Nike (NKE) and O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY). CRABBY was up small. Last program standing defines the close. Alphabet (GOOGL) tonite -- Boca Biff is short Alphabet, but he is not that good of a speller! I reinitiated a SPY short (
