Bonds and bond-equivalent stocks (REITs, utilities and consumer staples) act well -- as concerns about the possible timing of fiscal stimulation (not surprisingly) surface. Notes and bond yields are about 3 basis points lower in today's session -- at the low this morning they were down 6 basis points. iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) up a little less than a beaner. Retail better on a more defined probability (lower) of a border tariff tax. J.C. Penney (JCP) , Target (TGT) , Walmart (WMT) , Kohl's (KSS) and Norstrom's (JWN) leading the way. Energy stocks stronger (on a higher crude oil price) -- Schlumberger (SLB) Exxon Mobil (XOM) are up. Hartford Financial (HIG) a standout in the insurance space. Added to this name. Campbell Soup (CPB) continues to exhibit good absolute and relative price action. I Love Gold! And I have added to SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) . Oaktree Capital (OAK) up for the fifth day in a row (but modestly so). I have added to The Mighty Oak. Oil up $0.60. Gold up $17.60! The Bad Brokerage, banks and insurance are stinking up the joint. A good thing, as I am short Goldman Sachs (GS) (a recent Best Ideas List short), Bank of America (BAC) , Citigroup (C) , JP Morgan Chase (JPM) ,

The U.S. dollar weakened -- now for about three days in a row. Crude oil dropped by $2.06 to under $52 a barrel. Gold rose by $11. Ag commodities: wheat up $0.04, corn up $0.15, soybeans up $0.10 and oats down $0.02. Lumber down $6.60. Bonds rallied, with yields about 4 basis points lower. The 2s/10s spread contracted by 2 basis points. Municipals were well bid (closed-end muni-bond funds were quite strong), along with taxables. Junk bonds were flat in price and yield. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by another $0.04. Banks held firm, but brokerages and life insurance was lower. Autos unchanged. Energy got whacked with a two-beaner drop in oil. Old tech was mixed. But, Best Ideas short IBM (IBM)   tumbled by nearly $2 a share. Ag equipment -- the object of my disaffection -- were lower with both Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) weak. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer highlighted the bullish case for Caterpillar today.  Retail continues to be a land mine. Big pharma rallied led by Merck (MRK) and Eli Lilly (LLY) . Biotech was stronger -- plus 2% led by Allergan (AGN) (again!) and thanks to a high-profile M&A deal. Consumer staples suffered from Coca-Cola (KO) and Procter & Gamble (PG) research downgrades. I added to Campbell Soup (CPB) , however. (T)FANG, again popular -- continued so but far less than the strong Thursday-Friday period from last week. Here are some value-added contributions on our site today: 1. My dachshunds were partial to Jim "E l Capitan" Cramer's column that highlighted the pet/vet business. 2. Ben "Godlfinger" Cross on confidence. 3. Jeremy Lakosh on the

* Allergan (AGN) (my fav large-cap long for 2017) remains the "world's fair" and market leader. Now up $25 a share above my initial purchase price.
