I have added to my BB&T (BBT), Radian (RDN), General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) longs.

I am constantly surprised, at least over the last four quarters, how investors and the media initially respond euphorically to Caterpillar's earnings. I am staying short as the second-half outlook has deteriorated further based on recent dealer statistics. GM's $0.10 shortfall was from a higher effective tax rate and weak South America region results. I am a $36 buyer. BB&T's (BBT) results were about 2 cents lower than expected, but all from higher loan loss reserves. I am a buyer at $38.10 on today's weakness. Staying short small position in Facebook (FB). Shorted last night after hours at $85.05 and covered some down $2.50 from there.

Today's market has thus far been characterized by another day of painfully low volume, a small bounce back for the market-leading biotech sector, strength in social media and high-beta tech, Qs (Nasdaq) over Ss (S&P 500), a modest drop in bond yields and little change in the indices.

The stress tests have set the stage for strength down the line.

I am adding a small long position in Bank of America (BAC) at $15.85, and plan to expand the holding on any further weakness. Since the bank stress test, I have been waiting for an attractive entry point for this bank holding company below $16 per share. I reiterated my positive view on banks and financials Monday:
