Slower traffic caused significant promotional activities; commoditized some of its core products; lost top-line volume as worked back to mix. E-commerce was strong but lower than expected. Was out of balance with cold weather assortment. Company says greater opportunity for diversifying product mix; can drive volume in a discounted environment but still want to play the role as a premium full-priced brand. Company has taken steps to better position for future promotional environments. Imbalance due to extreme growth that it sees as an opportunity. Bottom Line If the New York Post press report is correct (though I am skeptical), I might put a needle in my eye for reversing the trade on Tuesday.

The U.S. dollar weakened on Navarro's comments. The price of crude oil was flattish, closing slightly under $53 a barrel. Gold up $19. Booyah. See my comments on gold during the day. I have a large position now and will grow larger on ANY weakness. Ag commodities rebounded from yesterday's schmeissing: wheat up $0.07, corn $0.02, soybeans $0.02 and oats up $0.01. Lumber up $7, an outsized gain for now explicable reason. Bonds rallied and I possess a contrary view that rates are headed lower. Yields dropped by 2-4 basis points the yield curve made no change. Municipals were bid for. Closed-end muni-bond funds higher. Junk bonds continued lower, albeit only slightly. Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) +$0.07 as the spread between high yield and treasuries continues the persistent contraction of the last few months. Banks were a downside standout. And so where insurance and brokerages. See my comments above. Retail was the surprise, rebounding from the UAA-induced early morning weakness. Perhaps my trading idea was right, after all. Autos were mixed and my pairs trade was slightly negative after the recent strong gains. Ag equipment broadly lower led by fav short, Caterpillar (CAT) . Consumer staples prospered as our currency weakened. Campbell Soup (CPB) small profit taking, Coca-Cola (KO) still no fizz. Biotech was up 3%, led by Allergan (up $6.50!), Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD) . Speculative biotech, after days of weakness, was on fire. Media was lower, Disney (DIS) reversed yesterday's gains. Big pharma liked what it heard in Washington, D.C (T)FANG was bad, bad -- with only Tesla (TSLA) higher. In individual stocks, Radian (RDN) looks like it is about to make a run for the roses -- and its only January! Apple down small ahead of earnings. Oaktree Capital (OAK) quietly moving higher, again! A good thing -- it will soon be springtime and hopefully the Mighty Oak will grow expansively. Here are some value added columns on our site today: 1. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer, unlike myself, is a buyer of banks " over the long run."  2. Carley Garner on large speculative shorts in Treasuries, something I have written about in the past. 3. Ed Ponsi "Scheme" likes gold, a kindred spirit. he discusses the gold/currency relationship in his good analysis.  4. Steve Blitz "Kreig" on jobs.  5. Rev Shark on dip buying, or lack thereof... and the consequences.    Positions -- Long: HIG large, RDN, AGN, GLD large, OAK, JCP small, F, CPB large Short: AAPL, SPY, QQQ, IWM small, BAC small, C small, JPM small, GS, MET, LNC, DIS small, CAT short, KO small, GM
