The U.S. dollar was unchanged. Crude oil was up a beaner to nearly $50 a barrel. Nat gas up two cents. Gold was up $4.40 to $1,247 but still in a downtrend. Agricultural commodities were on another tear: wheat +9.75, corn +9.00, soybean +7.00 and oats +6.00. Fertilizer stocks, such as Potash (POT), are responding. Bonds were weaker in price, higher in yield. iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) was up nearly a buck. The yield of the 10-year U.S. note was up two-and-a-half basis points to 1.73%. The long bond was up by three basis points to 2.554%. The 2s/10s spread still is at 93 basis points. High yield prospered, with iShares iBoxx High-Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG) up 40 cents and SPDR Barclay High Yield Bond ETF (JNK) up 15 cents. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) hit another new high, rising 18 cents to $14.66. Banks rallied, but not intensely, perhaps because of continuing flat yield curve. Brokerages were stronger with Goldman Sachs (GS) up $2 (it got 250,000 summer intern applications!) Insurance stocks were firmer, with Lincoln National (LNC) up $1.10, or 2.5%; my long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) lagged, up only 15 cents. Old tech lagged with little price change. Biotech was up, with iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) rising more than $4 and led by Celgene (CELG). Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), a former biotech basket member, was up nearly 13%, or $4.60. I sold out of the space last week. Autos was up small. Retail was disappointing, with most in the space marginally higher or down. Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) were low points Ag equipment was stronger, with Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) both up. Energy stocks surged, led by Schlumberger (SLB), up $3.50. Media was a noticeable underperformer, with Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS) flat. (T)FANG underperformed, with Alphabet (GOOGL) down almost $6 and Facebook (FB) barely higher. NOSH was mixed, with Nike (NKE) and Starbucks (SBUX) better but O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and HD lower. In individual stocks, POT was a highlight, up $1.20, perhaps on higher ag prices. Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) climbed $2.50 on a favorable Barron's article. Here are some value-added columns on our site today: Ben "Goldfinger" Cross likes gold.  "Diamond" James Gentile on what the rate of rate rise means for stocks.  Cramer and Mohr on the soft dollar benefits.  Rev asks does the market even care what Yellen says?   Jeremy LaKosh on the labor market.

Cadence is a relative issue, but some analysts are regarding it as absolute.

The key now is to prevent those wonderful gains from becoming potential losses.

Retailer's results might make them have second thoughts about a rate hike.


Paul Price

 | May 20, 2016 | 8:00 AM EDT

The retailer's upside appears limited based on historic multiples, so wait for a pullback.

bullishLowe's upgraded at Citi

May 20, 2016 | 7:13 AM EDT

LOW was upgraded to Buy, Citigroup said. $90 price target. Company is leveraged to higher industry spending.

Sales numbers were good compared to most rivals, but approach with caution.


Jim Cramer

Lowe's strong results illustrated that home improvement retailers cannot be undermined by online giant Amazon.com, says Jim Cramer.


Brian Sozzi

 | May 18, 2016 | 11:00 AM EDT

These names play in sectors that Amazon isn't disrupting and is unlikely to disrupt anytime soon for specific reasons.
