My Takeaways and Observations (3:30 p.m. Edition)

The markets started the day like Usain Bolt at the start of a 100-meter race. But, unlike Bolt, the finish wasn't as strong as the start.   I thought one of the day's features was the reversal in bond yields, particularly after the good data.    The...

Housekeeping Items

DuCola! (Part Deux)

My favorite large-cap long, DuPont  , continues to hit new highs -- trading over $74 earlier today. While my favorite large-cap short, Coca-Cola , breaches $40 (to the downside) and hits new yearly lows.

My Takeaways and Observations

The important messages today are the developing divergences.    The strength in energy stocks (reflecting a $3.88 a barrel rise in crude oil) masked the underlying weakness in the broader markets. Stated simply, these divergences in breadth, highs/l...
