The U.S. dollar continues to weaken. Crude oil fell by $1.05, trading at $44.87. Nat gas was a dime lower. Gold rose by another $5 and is approaching $1,300. The precious metal did trade over $1,300 earlier in the day. Agricultural commodities: wheat -4.50, soybean +8.00, corn -3.75 and oats flat. Lumber -2.60. Bonds got taken to the woodshed. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was down about a beaner. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note added three basis points to 1.85% and the long bond climbed four basis points in yield to 2.70%. Municipals sold off, but closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed to higher. High yield sold off. However, Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) traded up a nickel and is approaching $14. Banks prospered, led by JPMorgan Chase (JPM). Brokerages were strong -- Morgan Stanley (MS) up 20 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) $2.50. Life insurance responded well to higher rates and lower bond prices, with smart gains in Lincoln  National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and HIG. Energy stocks were mixed. Schlumberger (SLB) was a standout loser, though Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up 50 cents. Old media was mixed. IBM (IBM), despite Warren's endorsement, was slightly lower, while Microsoft (MSFT) was up 50 cents. Retail stocks rebounded, with short Nordstrom (JWN) recovering a portion of Friday's big loss. Media thrived. Disney (DIS) was up $1.10 and Comcast (CMCSA) 55 cents. Consumer staples did well, led by former long Procter & Gamble (PG). Biotech, the object of affection to value players this year, continued to be pressured. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was down a couple. VRX recovered two-thirds of its nearly $4 loss today. My biotech basket continues to roll over. Autos were up small -- General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) a dime higher, each. Ag equipment was flat. (T)FANG recovering well, led by Amazon (AMZN), which seemingly got an endorsement from Warren Buffett over the weekend and was up $23. By contrast, Tesla (TSLA) was down by $2, though it was lower. NOSH had all four components to the good, including Starbucks (SBUX), a short. CRABBY's six components also were all higher. In terms of miscellaneous stocks, Apple (AAPL) continues to be rotten to the core, down 50 cents. Twitter (TWTR) was awful and Potash (POT) was not much better, though rival Monsanto (MON) was up. Radian Group (RDN) and Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) were flat, as was DuPont (DD) after a big upside move. Warren's fav (but my short!) Coca-Cola (KO) was up 30 cents. iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI), last week's Trade of the Week, was off a dime after a very weak Friday. Here is some good stuff on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the U.S. dollar.   Robert "Not Rita" Moreno on the dreaded Coppock Curve!  Bret "Meet George" Jensen on four possible biotech targets.  The Count's take on the Berkshire Hathaway meeting.  RevShark on ... what is the market theme and on the lack of clear market leadership (a theme others like Jimmy and myself are concerned about)?

The Commerce Department reported today that first-quarter U.S. real gross domestic product only grew by 0.5%. And that was against an easy comparison from a year earlier, when we had bad weather and the Federal Reserve's Zero Interest Rate Policy at home, plus negative rates in Europe. For the fourth-consecutive year, consensus expectations for S&P 500 earnings have been too optimistic. We are in an earnings recession. The Fed's monetary largesse has pulled business activity, corporate sales and profits forward. But that spigot has lost effectiveness, and U.S. economic "escape velocity" appears to be an illusion (just reread my

Why sell companies that will benefit from a weaker dollar?

By

 | Apr 27, 2016 | 3:50 PM EDT
Inside day in the markets, at least as of 3 p.m. ET (in the time that it took to write "Takeaways," the S&P rose by seven handles). Ss (S&P) over Ns (Nasdaq). The U.S. dollar weakened after the Fed's comments. Crude oil advanced by $1.13 to $45.17. Gold rose by $4.60 to $1,248. Agricultural commodities gave back on price. Wheat -3.25, corn -3.25, soybean -3.00 and oats +2.50. Lumber +9.20. Bonds erupted higher in price, lower in yield after above. That is why I re-shorted Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) at $23.73. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by an outsize seven basis points to 1.86% and the long bond by five basis points to 2.70%. Municipals were well-bid and closed-end municipal bond funds advanced ... again. Big mistake selling them earlier in the year on my part! The high-yield bond market moved higher. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) paused and was flat. Banks experienced some early strength, sold off on the Fed's comments and are beginning to rally from the lows. Brokerages were stronger. Life insurance was unchanged despite the rise in bond prices. Retail was stronger across the board. Former long Macy's (M) was up 45 cents and short Nordstrom (JWN) was up 55 cents. Energy stocks rallied with crude oil. Schlumberger (SLB) rose $1.63 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) was up $1.00. Some positive dividend moves within the space. Old tech was quiet, though IBM (IBM) was up $1.60. Biotech was down most of the day, but experiencing a late day rally. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) was down $1.70. My biotech basket of speculative stocks still appears to be rolling over. Consumer non-durables thrived, as Kimberly-Clark (KMB) bounced from recent weakness and Procter & Gamble (PG) was up 55 cents. Short Coca-Cola (KO) was fractionally higher. Autos were dead flat. Ag equipment was higher, with Caterpillar (CAT) up $1.15 and Deere (DE) up $1.50. (T)FANG continues weak, led by AMZN, down $9, and Tesla (TSLA), down $2.60. Trade of the Week short iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI) continues to rally, up 30 cents. NOSH was mixed; Starbucks (SBUX), a favorite short, continues to decline, down 72 cents. It appears to be breaking down from the earnings report last week. Mine is a minority view. CRABBY was helped by Radian Group (RDN), which had an earnings beat and some good credit data (more to come later in the week). In miscellaneous names, Twitter (TWTR) was a twit and Potash (POT) rallied by 40 cents after Monsanto (MON) was upgraded yesterday. Apple was down between $6 and $7 most of the day. Here are some good columns from RealMoneyPro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the market, which is impervious to Apple.  Apple mea culpa (I respect his candidness) from Mark Sebastian.  Shad Gad "And the Pharoahs" on how to beat the pros.  James Passeri on Mr. Ackman Goes to Washington.  Jack and Jim on Twitter.

The U.S. dollar strengthened modestly. I discussed our currency this morning.  The price of crude oil dropped by 77 cents and closed at $43.40 Natural gas was flat. Gold was quiet, losing $3.60 to $1,250. Agricultural commodities trade as though they are HFT (high-frequency trading) influenced! -- wheat -11.00, corn -11.50, soybean +9.25 and oats -5.50. Lumber was flat. Bonds were lower, with iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) down 65 cents. The 10-year U.S. note rose by two basis points to 1.86% and the 30-year by three basis points to 2.69%. Municipals were flat. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. High yield was down. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose nicely, by eight cents to $13.72. Though down on the day, banks held up well considering the recent strength; however, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) was down by 74 cents. I should have stayed with yesterday's Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) short. I will revisit as I expect a correction of plus or minus 5% in these names post haste. Brokerages gave back recent gains. Morgan Stanley (MS) was down 15 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) down $2.00 Retail was lower, with Wal-Mart (WMT), Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) all down, but by less than a beaner each. Under Armour (UA) was an upside standout. Old tech, except IBM (IBM), which was up $2.62, was lower, led by Microsoft following its earnings report. I will dissect Mr. Softee tonight and I am awaiting the conference call in a few minutes. My feedback will be discussed tomorrow. Ag equipment was lower, with Caterpillar (CAT) down 72 cents and Deere (DE) down $1.71. Staples continued their schmeissing -- is the safety trade is over? Good sale earlier in the week in former long Procter & Gamble (PG), which was down 74 cents; it is down almost $3 since my exit two days ago. Best Ideas short Coca-Cola (KO) continues to give gas and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) got whacked by $3.50. Media was lower, but Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS) only by a half a buck or so each. Biotech was a standout; iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) rose by a bit over 2%, led by Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD). Former spec holding Intrexon (XON) was down $10 after a negative Seeking Alpha report. I expect more big losses ahead in secondary and tertiary biotech names. (T)FANG got declawed, led by Alphabet and its after-hours miss. NOSH was ouch, led by the SBUX miss. CRABBY was also in a rotten mood. In individual names, fav DuPont (DD) was a standout on the upside, rising 60 cents. Potash (POT) was up a dime, and Twitter (TWTR) was unchanged. Here are some great contributions on today's RealMoneyPro site: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer sings Bob Dylan (The Times They are a Changin').  Tim "Not Phil or Judy" Collins on how to play MSFT and GOOGL.  Dick Arms on the market -- always a good read.  Robert "Not Rita" Moreno likes McDonald's (MCD) on the short side; I like this contrary technical take. (The stock is loved by everyone!)  Interesting observation from Brian Sozzi on the message on emerging growth markets delivered by PepsiCo (PEP) and Coca-Cola.
