In accordance with my interest rate expectations (see prior post), I am offering more Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) , Lincoln National (LNC) and MetLife (MET) shorts. The latter two names were recent additions to my Best Ideas List.

I continue to believe the domestic economy will disappoint and that the U.S. stock market will suffer as expectations for GDP and corporate profit growth remain too optimistic.

The U.S. dollar firmed making a multi-month high against the euro earlier in the day. Crude oil was flat, closing right on the figure of $54 a barrel. Gold rose $4, and I re-established my long this week, although it's still small. Ag commodities were schmeissed for the second day in a row: Wheat down $0.075, corn down $0.065, soybeans down $0.08 and oats down $0.01. Lumber rose by nearly $5. Bonds had a spirited rally with TLT up a beaner. Closing at $118.70 I went long for a trade at $117.30 yesterday in anticipation of a Friday rebalancing on the part of pension plans (selling stocks, buying bonds because of the large differential of performance). Sir Arthur Cashin mentioned as much as $35 billion in stocks to sell. Stay tuned. Some might have been taken off today. The yield on the 10-year and long bond fell by about 5 basis points. The 10-year is approaching 2.5% (a two-week low). The 2s/10s spread flattened by 2-3 bps to 1256 basis points. Municipal bonds were well bid but closed-end muni-bond funds continue to be sold (more tax selling likely). Junk bonds were lower but Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) went contra, up a large $0.10 to a recent high. I am not sure why the divergence because bank loan market didn't move much. Banks sold off and I re-established an Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF) short. A contrarian pay and consistent with my bond market expectations over the next few months. See 15 Surprises here and here. Insurance stocks got schmeissed. I am long Hartford Financial (HIG) and short Metlife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) (recent Best Idea List inclusions). Net net I made out fine in the space. Autos sold off. I plan to be a buyer of General Motors (GM) in a general market correction. Old media was sold. IBM (IBM) , short, down a buck. I recently added. Energy shares lower despite an unchanged crude oil price. Consumer staples were lower, save my long Campbell Soup (CPB) (that acts like a champ). Retail broadly on sale. JC Penney (JCP) held up well -- and I re-established some January and May short put positions taking in premium on a stock I like and would buy at lower levels). Biotech stunk with Gilead Sciences (GILD)  and Celgene (CELG)  both weak. Best Ideas new member, AGN was up $3 and I named it my favorite large-cap long for next year. Speculative biotech was clipped, too (Intrexon (XON) , Sage (SAGE) and ACADIA Pharma
