The U.S. dollar weakened. Crude oil rose by $1.22 to $41.00. Nat gas was up by sixteen cents. Gold rose by $18.70 to $1,253. Silver was up by 70 cents. More upside action in agricultural chemicals, with Potash (POT) up $1.20. Wheat +11.50, corn +3.50, soybeans +28.50 and oats +5.25. Lumber was +6.40. Bonds dropped a bit in price, and were slightly higher in yield. The 10-year U.S. note yield rose by one basis point to 1.78% and the long bond by a similar amount and yields 2.59%. Municipals down slightly; closed-end muni funds' rapid advance dissipated late in the day ... finally! High yield was well-bid. iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) was up 36 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) was up 15 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was three cents lower; I am out of the name now. Banks exploded to the upside, led by JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Comerica (CMA), all up by over a beaner. Life insurance advanced again, though my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) lagged. Brokerages were up, led by Morgan Stanley (MS), up 64 cents, and Goldman Sachs (GS), up $3.65. Retail was quiet. Home Depot (HD) was a downside leader, off $1.50. Lowe's (LOW) was weak, too. Old tech got IBM'd, with IBM (IBM) down $8.50. Staples were broadly higher, led by long Procter & Gamble (PG), up 50 cents. Old media was mixed. Comcast (CMCSA) was lower but Disney (DIS) led the parade. Autos were strong, continuing the Barron's push over the past weekend. Ford (F) was up 15 cents and General Motors (GM) up 65 cents. Oils responded to better commodity pricing. Schlumberger (SLB) was the league leader, up $1.70. Biotech and the rest of the Nasdaq were conspicuously to the downside. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down 1.66%. Allergan (AGN) is still recovering (up $4.50) and my former biotech basket got hit, but not materially so. (T)FANG weakness was also obvious, though Facebook (FB) had a late-day kick save. NOSH was mixed. So was CRABBY. In individual stocks, Twitter (TWTR) was a poor actor. On the other hand, fav long DuPont (DD) was strong, up $1.15. Here are some great posts on RealMoneyPro today: Some oil vey from Jim "El Capitan" Cramer.  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on some overnight trade ideas.  And also from Tim, some SPY-ing.  RevShark on

The U.S. Dollar was weaker, but modestly so. Crude oil rallied magnificently from the lows and only dropped by 60 cents to $39.77 on the day. Natural gas is four cents higher. Gold was flat Large upside move in several agricultural commodities: wheat +14.50 and corn +2.75, but soybean down slightly Lumber down $2.40. Bonds rose in price, moved lower in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down 57 cents. The 10-year U.S. note yields 1.77%, up two basis points, and the long bond is up the same amount in yield to 2.58%. Municipals were up slightly in price, but those closed-end municipal bond funds continue to rip higher. It's become unrelenting. High yield was better. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rebounded by about a dime in price. I am no longer long. Banks managed small gains. Life insurers had marginal gains. I'm still long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) and short MetLife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC). Brokerages were mixed. I shorted both Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) today. The market is enamored with a 50% drop in MS earnings -- makes little sense to me. Autos were up -- GM up 75 cents and Ford (F) up 31 cents on a better market and a cover story in Barron's. Why I disagree with Barron's.  Retail was higher, led by Wal-Mart (WMT), Home Depot (HD), Coach (COH) and Under Armour (UA). I eliminated my Macy's (M) long and took the name off of my Best Ideas List this afternoon. Short Nordstrom (JWN) up by a half-dollar.  Consumer staples were stronger, led by long Procter & Gamble (PG). Oils rallied despite the commodity being pressured. Schlumberger (SLB) was up $1.19 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up 81 cents. Biotech was up 1.5%, led by Allergan (AGN), rebounding from recent losses, and Valeant (VRX), up $1.15. My biotech basket was unexciting. Old tech prospered, led by Intel (INTC), Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco (CSCO). Media was a standout. Comcast (CMCSA) was up 40 cents and Disney (DIS) up $3.00. (T)FANG was mixed, with shorts Tesla (TSLA) and Netflix (NFLX) lower. Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL) were up five dollars each. NOSH was up across the board, led by HD and O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY). CRABBY's six components were all up. In individual stock land: Potash (POT) was up 30 cents, Twitter (TWTR) down a like amount and Radian Group (RDN) up a few pennies. Apple's (AAPL) $2.70 decline was conspicuous. Here are some great articles on RealMoneyPro today: Jim Cramer on "Don't Let Oil Do Your Investing"  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" on "At What Price Should you Buy AMZN and FB?"  Mark Sebastian's "Doha's Big Deal Turns Out to be a Dud"   Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins offers an option strategy ahead of IBM's earnings  and opines on IBM and NFLX.  Bobby Lang on ignoring talking Fed heads.

Another day in which what was bad -- cyclicals, energy and banking -- is good again. The U.S. dollar strengthened -- that, too, is not supposed to be good for equities. Crude oil reversed from 2016 highs established earlier in the day. closing down by 38 cents to $41.79. Natural gas climbed by three cents. Gold was down $12.60 to $1,249. Monster move higher in agricultural commodities: wheat +0.25, corn +11.00. soybean +20.5 -- to the moon, Alice.   Bonds climbed, with iShares 20-Year+ Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) up 50 cents. The 10-year and the 30-year barely moved. Yields unchanged. Municipals were slightly higher. High yield prospered, with iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 60 cents and SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 25 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) was up a nickel to a new recent high of $13.90. Banks were the world's fair on a slight JPMorgan Chase (JPM) beat against much-lowered expectations from a few months ago. Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) are on tap later this week. Notably, Deutsche Bank (DB) dead-catted by 8%. Brokerages ripped higher on better-than-expected capital markets activity within the JPM report. Morgan Stanley (MS) was up more than a beaner and Goldman Sachs (GS) was up $5. Life insurance stocks also strong. Autos rebounded, with General Motors (GM) up $1.05 and Ford (F) up 25 cents as investors are willing to pay more for a dollar of earnings that are peaking. Defensive consumer nondurables were anything but defensive as the market continues to rotate to more aggressive names. Staples were hit, including Best Ideas List long Procter & Gamble (PG).  Old tech was higher, but less than the market. IBM (IBM) continues its skein after an upgrade a few days ago. Modest gains for Intel (INTC), Cisco (CSCO) and Microsoft (MSFT). iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was up 1.9% despite the Theranos news and the credit release at Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX). Allergan (AGN) was lower. My former biotech basket of speculative stocks was mixed. Celgene (CELG), Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), Intrexon (XON), Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) and Sage Therapeutics (SAGE) were strong. Media joined the fun. Comcast (CMCSA) was up only 20 cents but Disney (DIS) was up two beaners. Retail was higher, but not materially so after the weak data. (T)FANG with the exception of a weak Facebook (FB) was higher on the day. But there was distinct underperformance against the averages. NOSH was mixed and also underperformed. CRABBY was led by C. In individual stocks, Apple (AAPL) was up $1.60 and Twitter (TWTR) rose almost 5%, while Potash (POT) and Radian Group (RDN) also moved higher. Limited trading today. Here is some great stuff on RealMoneyPro today: El Capitan on CSX  (CSX) and Jeremy LaKosh on the same subject.  RevShark's always-informative market takes.  Carleton English on the bears' dilemma.  Mike Norman's I told you so.  Ed Ponsi "Scheme" does the

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.

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.
