From The Street of Dreams Real Money Pro($)

First Boston has reduced its price target on (KSS) and has downgraded the stock based on the expectation of comp and EPS miss. I have recently added to my KSS short. KSS was placed on my Best Ideas last month (along with (TGT) ) at $63.38 and is now trading at $59.35. I am short (WMT) (been a good one), KSS and TGT and long (M) (special situation/real estate values and marketing transformation) and (DDS) (the gift that keeps on giving/company going private one share at a time) in the retail space. An elevated price of oil could put something of a dagger into the retail space this summer.

U.S. markets were rising for the second straight session.
* I would not extrapolate yesterday's market recovery from the lows * If we move towards the top end of the trading range I would again be a seller "As I mentioned earlier in the week - for the time being, we seem to be stuck in the S&P Index range of 2550-2720. With S&P cash at 2630 - we seem to be stuck in the middle...with you and with the recent trading range! Ultimately (the timing is presently uncertain as it usually is!) I see a breach to the downside of the recent range - but that could be months away and will be dependent upon the developing economic, political, policy and other fundamentals." - Kass Diary, Stuck in the Middle of a Trading Range I would be disinclined to follow yesterday's market recovery off of the day's lows and the further (Facebook (FB) -aided) advance in the after hours. It is likely doubtful to me that a meaningful advance or new bull leg lies ahead. In fact, I would tend to sell/short into this reversal and raise cash or short exposure as nothing has changed in terms of the potential political, economic and (structural) market headwinds. On Facebook, my guess is that quite a few piled into short going into the earnings print - particularly with Jeff Gundlach pitching it as a short in the Ira Sohn Conference. It is important to recognize that there is a lag to the likely appearance of Facebook's emerging headwinds reflected in higher costs (and larger capital spending requirements). It takes time for advertisers to make an adjustment and a lot of the advertising is pre-bought. Moreover, the "heavy stuff" just started at the end of the quarter. (It will be interesting to see what insider selling looks like in the FB quarter.) I plan to reconsider reestablishing a trading short (I had covered my short position for a profit on Tuesday). Here is a strong and thorough analysis of Facebook's quarter by our Eric Jhonsa. I do think that Twitter's (TWTR) stock could draft higher following Facebook's good metric reports (and that yesterday's TWTR weakness provided another great entry point). Twitter's quarter indicated that it is beginning to monetize its platform by expanding its toehold of advertising revenue. The company's platform holds scarcity value and the recent expansion in users could even begin to accelerate in the next two years. Importantly, Twitter's structuring of personal data and information (more anonymity, etc.) suggests that the company wont face the regulatory scrub down that Alphabet (GOOGL) and Facebook almost certainly will face in the years ahead. Bottom Line I believe we are stuck in the middle of a trading range and should we move towards the top end of that range I suspect you know what my strategy will be! As I wrote yesterday, my tactical strategy is unchanged:
