Prefer second-level thinking to first-level thinking -- by taking a skeptical and realistic view of possible regulatory changes, the slope of interest rates and other determining factors that influence industry profits. Among other things, second-level thinking weighs whether the share-price advance in the sector had discounted the optimistic consensus thinking and aggressive earnings assumptions. Speaking of consensus, always consider how strong and self confident the market's bias is and how realistic its assumptions might be. Glibness is always a red flag for me -- it is a "trigger" and often generates the start of my analysis. I took on small short positions in the banks (and medium-sized positions in GS, Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) ) because I admitted in my writing that I was not as confident as the many we listen to in the media and Wall Street. The only certainty in managing money is the lack of certainty. We only have to look at the Trump election win and the market's post-victo

Regulatory changes may be slow in implementation and less (in size/magnitude/impact) than generally expected. The same may apply to tax policy - aimed at accelerating economic growth.

The U.S. Dollar strengthened. The price of crude oil rose by over one dollar to $53.78/barrel. Gold fell by -$8.60 to $1189. Ag commodities: wheat +2.50, corn -2.50, soybean -7 and oats -5.5. Lumber increased by $1.50. Bonds rallied in price after an early morning spill. Yields dropped by two basis points. The yield curve was flat. Municipal bonds were flat, as were closed end muni bond funds. Junk was unchanged, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB)  down $0.03. Banks prospered, though Citigroup (C) was lower. Insurance was mixed after a Metlife (MET) downgrade. Brokerages solid, led by GS (short and on Best Ideas List). Big pharma continues out of favor after large downside at Bristol-Myers (BMY) . Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) continues weak, after M&A announcement. Retail continues to underperform and the possible 20% tariff from Mexico (that Sean Spicer just mentioned) won't help. Nor will the possibility of a Sears (SHLD) bankruptcy (plenty of discounted merchandise could cause some indigestion over the next few months. Old media was mixed, awaiting Microsoft (MSFT) EPS this afternoon. Biotech continued its fade led by Allergan (AGN) , Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) . Speculative biotech also got hit. Consumer staples faltered despite the currency weakness. Campbell Soup (CPB) and Procter &
