Why I sold Twitter on Friday. Why upside/downside targets are my investing religion.  Why it would be Goofy for Disney (DIS) to buy Twitter. Remember media companies, unlike Google and Salesforce, are bounded by EPS and cash flow. Disney has its own problems. I remain short.  A contrary view: Don't bank on the banks. As I mentioned (and added to my aforementioned thesis to avoid financials) to Jimmy Cramer in an email late this afternoon:   Jim, It is clear the Fed WANTS to raise in December. It is also clear that the rate of growth in domestic economy is slowing. If the Fed raises and the economy remains moribund, we risk a flatter curve rather than a steeper curve -- which is bad for banks and goes against the meme that a rate rise will help improve NIM and lead to improved valuations.   Fertilizer stocks trade like crap. Stay away. I am.   Damn, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) ! ($20 in last three days) I was impatient and

A fresh rally leg may be on the way if MetLife can continue to gain momentum.

If and when interest rates go up, this basket of stocks should continue to do well.

While the stocks have bounced off their June lows, there appears to be far more upside from here.

The U.S. dollar strengthened again. The price of crude oil dropped by another 60 cents (same as yesterday) to $46.35. Gold is souring and seems to have a meeting at $1,300; down another $11.40 to $1,318. Ag chemicals continue their schmeissing: wheat -4, corn -5, soybean -17 and oats -4. Bonds flat lined. The yield on the 10-year note and long bond showed no change. The 2/10s spread rose by one basis point to 78 basis points. Banks (weird divergence against bonds/slope continues, but less so than yesterday) and brokers are still the world's fair. Insurers are rallying. I'm adding to HIG. I'm down to tag ends in MetLife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) . Non-taxables (munis) and junk bonds sold off small. Biotech are down small. Retail is conspicuously weak -- the worst-performing S&P group. I'm adding to JCP, but it's an investment and not a trade. Autos and energy are mixed. Old tech is broadly lower. Consumer staples are reversing (maybe it's the EC decision against Apple?) yesterday's gains as our currency firms. I recently added to my Coca-Cola (KO) short (a conservative and low-risk way to short Mr. Market). Media is lower. Ag equipment got hit on a worsening ag commodities picture. (T)FANG's five components are lower on the day. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on Apple.  Dueling Apple views by Tony Owusu.  Ed Ponsi (Scheme) keeping it real.  "Meet" Bret Jensen on two interesting speculative biotech names.  Boring, according to the righteous Rev Shark.

Oil is lower yet energy stocks -- including my shorts Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB) -- are higher. Treasury yields are lower and the yield curve flattens, yet banks and financials are higher. The U.S. dollar is stronger yet consumer staples are higher. Fertilizer stocks are crap.  My Trade of the Week is
