High of the days with about seventy minutes to go. What's bad is new and good again -- cyclicals and energy -- in a crude-inspired rally today. Crude rises by $1.87 to $42.23 -- a 2016 high based on rumors of a Saudi-Russia output deal. Nat gas up by seven cents. The U.S. dollar strengthened a bit. Gold up $1.20. In the agricultural commodities world: wheat +4.00, corn +6.00, soybeans +10.00. A big recovery from yesterday's weakness. Lumber up $5.10. Bonds get hit -- iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) off by more than a beaner. The 10-year U.S. note yields 1.78% -- a gain of five basis points -- while the long bond rose by four basis points to 2.60%. Municipals were flat, but closed-end muni bond funds continue their amazingly strong run. High yield bonds were strong despite the weakness in taxable. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) continued its nice run, up a nickel to a recent high of $13.90. Banks ignored the coming poor earnings prospects. Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) all were strong, but European banks -- e.g., Deutsche Bank (DB) -- languished. Life insurance stocks responded well to lower bond prices. My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) underperformed my shorts Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET). Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) was strong, up by nearly $1.25. Brokerages moved higher, with Morgan Stanley (MS) up 65 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) up $2.65. Retail space was strong, led by Home Depot (HD) and Wal-Mart (WMT). Old tech disappointed with fractional gains, if any. Consumer nondurables were indifferent to the rally. My long Procter & Gamble (PG) was up modestly, my short Coca-Cola (KO) the same. Biotech underperformed as investors preferred cyclicals. IBB up less than one percent with AGN showing no life (down by another -$5+). Autos weren't cruising, with only marginal gains in Ford (F) and General Motors (GM). (T)FANG action was mild relative to the broader market's strength as high growth was shunned. Tesla (TSLA) continued lower after yesterday's SUV recall, but Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Alphabet (GOOG) traded better. Media moved higher, with Comcast (CMCSA) up 30 cents and Disney (DIS) up $1.06; both are candidates for more shorting. NOSH was tasty excluding Starbucks (SBUX), which got a DB downgrade; I remain short. CRABBY was strong, with all six components higher. In individual stocks, Fastenal (FAST) fell off an in-line number and some cautionary commentary. Twitter (TWTR) still foundering. Potash (POT) and, in particular, Radian Group (RDN), showed some life. Caterpillar (CAT) continues higher. And my large-cap "stock of the year," DuPont (DD), is up by over $1. Here are some great columns on RealMoneyPro today: El Capitan on Facebook.  Ben Cross on oil and shorts.  Sham Gad "And the Pharoahs" on value investing

In case you hadn't heard, Procter & Gamble (PG) -- which is one of just five longs left on my "Best Ideas" list -- modestly boosted its dividend after the bell on Friday.

The U.S. dollar was essentially flat today. Crude oil rose by 54 cents to $40.26. It's amusing how the $20 crude forecasts have disappeared, and so has the self-confidence that was expressed back then! Nat gas down by seven cents. Gold ripped by another $13.70, to $1,257. Agricultural prices got schmeissed (see my POT comments in my Diary): wheat -13.75 and corn -5.5, but soybeans +10.75. Lumber was flat. Bonds were down, flat and now back down. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) down 25 cents. The yields on the 10-year (1.72%) and 30-year (2.56%) were flat. Municipals were unchanged, though closed-end municipal bond funds continue to soar, relatively speaking. And I am getting very upset for selling out a few months ago, because it was a theme consistent with my slower growth thesis. I suppose "lower for longer" is now becoming consensus and is fueling the space. High yield was well-bid. But BGB had an outsize move of 16 cents following my mention in Barron's.  Banks prospered, but I think it's likely just noise. Brokerages prospered -- Morgan Stanley (MS) up 50 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) up $3.50 -- for the same reason that banks are higher? GS had a large ($5 billion) mortgage settlement announced today. Life insurance stocks surged, led by Lincoln National (LNC) and Prudential (PRU). I added to Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) today. Berkshire (BRK.B) better; I remain short. Retail stocks were mixed. Check out the Market Vectors Retail ETF (RTH) chart -- it is either breaking out or about to fail and at a critical juncture. I will have more on the sector tomorrow morning. Old tech was mixed, with little substantive price movement. Energy stock rose but by lesser amounts than one would think relative to the price in crude oil.  That said, they rose greater than the commodity on Thursday and Friday. Consumer nondurables were mixed. My fav Procter & Gamble (PG) was down a quarter and Coca-Cola (KO), my short, was down by like amount. Biotech disappointed -- down 1% -- as Allergan (AGN) and Valeant (VRX) were downside leaders. My former biotech basket weakened. While Gilead Sciences (GILD) was 50 cents, Celgene (CELG), Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) and Intrexon (XON) got hit. Autos were better bid, with Ford (F) up 15 cents and General Motors (GM) up 30 cents. Too bad I am short both. Media was mildly higher, with Disney (DIS) up 60 cents and Comcast (CMCSA) up 35 cents. (T)FANG was mixed. Tesla (TSLA) was a feature -- up $9 in the early going, now down on the day on the SUV recall. Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) up about $5 each. NOSH was weak -- downside leaders were Nike (NKE) and O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY). CRABBY shined, with all components save Radian Group (RDN) higher . In individual stocks, watch Sears (SLHD) -- the drop is getting worrisome and a failure would have important real estate and employment consequences. Caterpillar (CAT), a short, continues to rally -- up by nearly a beaner. Apple (AAPL) was up $1.20 and close to $110 -- I will be adding to my short on any further strength. I wanted to close Takeaways by acknowledging the loss of an old friend, Jack O'Neill. Today was Jack's funeral.  Many of my friends were at Campbell's Funeral Home to pay tribute to this great and unique man. He owned JG Melon, an iconic hamburger joint in New York City on Third Avenue in the Seventies.  Jack was an occasional golf opponent and partner of mine; he often shot his age -- in the low 80s. He was something of a Damon Runyon character -- the type of personality that no longer exists. He was a pal of Toots Shor and the rest of the fascinating personalities who inhabited the saloon scene in Manhattan decades ago. The loss of Jack is a big loss to his families and friends. He will be sorely missed. They don't make them like Jack anymore. R.I.P

The U.S. dollar weakened. Our currency has had a big run and I wouldn't be surprised if some profit-taking occurred, as mentioned yesterday. Bonds bolted higher in a flight to safety. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) was up $1.70. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by seven basis points to 1.68% and the long bond declined to 2.51%. For some time I have emphasized that stock investors should heed the message from the bond market, both here and abroad. I continue to see a 35% chance of a garden-variety recession in 2016-17 and a 15% chance of a deeper recession. Municipals were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds continued higher. High yield was junky. However, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a few pennies. Gold rose by $18 to $1,242. Crude oil declined by a quarter to $39.60.  Nat gas rose by eleven cents. Agricultural commodities: wheat -5.25, corn +3.50, soybeans -4.00. Banks got whacked big-time. As you all know, I sold out all of my longs about a week ago as I am fearful that earnings estimates are too high. I lowered my earnings-per-share expectations by 5% on Monday. We could see a buying opportunity on the next leg lower (if it occurs) in response to disappointing first-quarter earnings. Spreads, loan losses and weak capital markets activity will likely be the culprits. Brokerages got ripped apart, especially my lone short Goldman Sachs (GS), which I just put on Tuesday and Wednesday. GS was down $4.82 and Morgan Stanley (MS) down 62 cents. GS has some fans on the site, but I respectfully disagree. Energy stocks got taken to the woodshed. Schlumberger (SLB) down $1.15 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) down 95 cents. Life insurance, the object of my disaffection, faces huge reinvestment problems and today's bond rally hit the sector badly. Lincoln National (LNC) was down $1.12 and MetLife (MET) down $1.14. Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) got hit again. Retail was weak, led by my sole short position Nordstrom (JWN), down $2.25 -- it also has been endorsed on the site.  Autos continue to founder -- Ford (F) down 30 cents and General Motors down 50 cents; they continue to act like value traps. Peak autos is my continued mantra. Old tech got hit, led down by IBM (IBM), off $1.80, Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco (CSCO). Consumer non-durables got hit. My long Procter & Gamble (PG) was down 70 cents and short Coca-Cola (KO) was down 47 cents. Biotech reversed yesterday's spectacular gains; iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was down $4.80. My biotech basket was mixed to down. Old media suffered -- Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS) down for a second day in a row as a result of management issues. (T)FANG got whacked, led by Amazon (AMZN) and Telsa (TSLA) -- each down by more than $8. NOSH threw up. Home Depot (HD) and O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) were on the downside. CRABBY was down, led by drops in Alleghany (Y) and Allstate (ALL). In individual stocks, DuPont (DD) is $1 to $2 within my buy zone.

My Take on Corporate Taxes  Man Up, Allergan Shareholders  Who Loses in Pfizer/Allergan Deal's Demise?  I remain manifestly bearish, in the belief that an important and broad stock market top commenced in May 2015. In every day over the last two weeks I have added to my net short exposure. So there! The U.S. dollar

I'm long on Procter & Gamble (PG) and short Coca-Cola (KO) among consumer staples, which are likely to benefit from a lower U.S. dollar.

The U.S. dollar faltered after the Fed's musings. The S&P 500 is at the day's high at the time of this writing. Crude oil was indifferent to the Fed, closing $1.04 lower to $38.35, after breaching $38 earlier in the day. Bonds responded higher in price and lower in yield. The yield on the 10-year dropped by five basis points to 1.83% and the long bond declined by two basis points to 2.62%. Municipals were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds rose in price. High yield was up, but only slightly. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by 10 cents after being lower most of the day. Banks suffered from the Fed's pronouncement and a flattening yield curve -- down across the board. I am flat the sector. CNBC et al are reporting that Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) purchased more Wells Fargo (WFC) stock; however, the buys barely changed its position from year-end. Its percentage ownership rose from 9.8% to 10% based on WFC's buyback year to date. Brokerages were mixed, with Morgan Stanley (MS) flat and Goldman Sachs (GS) up a beaner. Life insurance stocks suffered from the drop in interest rates. Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) was down but not as much as my shorts, Lincoln Financial (LNC) and MetLife (MET). Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was mighty -- it's the only financial I own and the only name on my Best Ideas List.   Retail stocks were higher. Favored Macy's (M) was flat and Nordstrom (JWN), which I've shorted, was up a half-dollar. Home Depot (HD) was a leader. Energy stocks were pennies higher despite a drop in energy prices. I shorted more Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Schlumberger (SLB). Old media was stronger across the board.  Consumer staples prospered with lower currency, though favored Procter & Gamble (PG) underperformed. (T)FANG was broadly higher, though Tesla (TSLA) underperformed. NOSH was tasty, led by Starbucks (SBUX), a short. CRABBY was mixed.
