Market Upshifts

Mr. Market moves into third gear, again -- at day's highs. Added to S&P 500 ETF short at $283.40. Also added to Dillard's  and Macy's longs.

Retail Pickups

As I mentioned I added small to my retail exposure -- on weakness. I would have preferred a deeper sell off but I have a lot of powder left for Macy's and Dillard's . M was placed on my Best Ideas List on November 14, 2017 at $19.39. It is now tradi...

Retaliers Left Out

Retailers are being left out of today's market advance. I plan to be a buyer of Dillard's and Macy's on weakness.

My Macy's, Dillard's Offering

I am offering some of my Macy's and Dillard's longs slightly above the market now.

The Market Beast Continues to Advance

That Was The Week That Was "That was the week that was, its over let it go..." - Millicent Martin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS8ac4catVk TGIF. The market's advance today, this week and this year continued unabated. As Jim "El Capitan" Cramer ch...

Same Old Same Old!

Market led by retailers  -- I reestablished positions in Macy's and Dillard's late Thursday.

Today's Trades

Despite euphoric investor sentiment conditions (described this week), risk control/discipline necessitated reducing my very large SPDR S&P 500 ETF short to medium sized today. I added to my Hartford long and reestablished my Macy's and Dillard's lon...

Macy's, Dillard's Positions

Back long small positions in Macy's and Dillard's . The shares -- given recent retail data -- have gotten cheaper relative to a highly priced stock market. But I might be stretching here and, frankly, bowing to some FOMO. I will add on weakness.

Bullish? Consider These 6 Longs

If you are bullish (which I am not) here is a shopping list of six longs (that reside on my Best Ideas List) that you might want to consider: * Hartford Financial Services and Wells Fargo : Beneficiaries of higher interest rates. * Twitter : Tasty f...

Retailers, Sales, Inflation and Valuations

This morning both apparel-centric Macy's and J.C. Penney reported results for the fourth quarter -- both were unscheduled. The stocks reversed hard during the morning, which negated a lot of the advance of the last few days. Though sales were not di...

Some Morning Observations

So far: * Retail is quickly reversing yesterdays strength. Dillard's (-$1.70) and Macy's (-$0.70) downside leaders. * Gold quiet, +$1.90. Though optimistic for the full year I would not chase SPDY Gold ETF GLD at these levels. (I am a buyer on weakn...

Short Retail Report

I am pleased with yesterday's decision to eliminate the balance of my Macy's and Dillard's holdings, as today they are down around $0.75 and $1.20, respectively. However, I have not yet put on a retail short.

RTH Rental

As we move into year's end, I am taking a short-term rental in a VanEck Vectors Retail ETF short. Retailers have had an exquisite trading rally from a summer sentiment (and oversold) low. (I invested in and , and profited mightily in the interim int...

Taking My Dillard's and Macy's Profits and Running

I have taken advantage of the strength in retail stocks over the last few weeks and I have eliminated my retail holdings in Dillard's and Macy's this morning. Both stocks remain on my Best Ideas List as I will be a buyer on weakness. I put DDS on my...

Dillard's Perks Up

Dillard's (up nearly $3) goes "plaid" and the rest of retail follows suit!

Yell and Roar and Sell Some More!

I am now down to tag ends in Twitter   , Dillard's  and Hartford Financial Services Group  . I have taken down Macy's  to small- sized. I have added to my Time Warner  long. And I have increased Campbell Soup  to large-sized.

Scaling Back 2 More Longs

I have reduced my Wells Fargo and Dillard's longs to small just now. Both stocks remain on my Best Ideas List, however.

Small-Caps Lead Monday's Gains

Markets were higher "from flagpole to that's all" today.  The Russell Index, which has been lagging, led the markets to the upside. Bond yields were considerably higher (by about four basis points) - and a possible yield breakout and price breakdown...

Trading Stock of the Year

Dillard's gets the vote as my best trading stock of the year. My cumulative point profit from trading/investing in this name translates into a near +80% gain in 2017 -- imagine, on a retailer! Now that is a surprise!

The Long (Mostly) and Short of It

I re-established a small Macy's long this morning and I added to my sizable Dillard's long. I sold the balance of my small ProShares UltraShort S&P 500 long for a large loss. I just now sold off a small amount of Wells Fargo at $61.01 and also a sma...

Buying Dillard's and the Gold ETF

I picked up the following longs near the close -- Dillard's at $56.65 and the SPDR Gold Shares ETF at $118.95.

5 Quick Observations

Once again, the Russell 2000 isn't crowing and providing a cautionary amber light for the market. But once again, Mr. Market doesn't break, he just bends. My other observations for Thursday: The bond market isn't supportive of the consensus view tha...

Wrap Up

I was out of the office most of the day. To me the most interesting asset class move was in bonds -- with yields down by over five basis points. The 10-year yield fell to under 2.35% though the 2s/10s curve was flat. While municipals rallied in pric...

Some Afternoon Observations

* Thus far, my expectation of an "inside day" has been accurate. SPDR S&P 500 ETF  has traded in a fifty cent range most of the day. * Bonds are at the day's highs. +$0.88. Yield on the 10-year U.S. note is down by 3.5 basis points to 2.32% (where y...
