As the market gives up on sectors such as health care and apparel, buy the best of the best of those sectors -- but do it in stages.

A day full of sound and fury but perhaps signifying nothing. As I expected, the Fed acknowledged tightening financial conditions in the credit markets. Spreads have widened and the cost of debt and capital has risen. Here's my Fed analysis  and my strategy.  I viewed the strength in oil, in bank stocks and in credit (high yield) as providing hope and encouragement to me. I remain upbeat. I view the selloff today as an opportunity; I added to Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG), Comerica (CMA), Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC) and others. I had a damn love fest with RevShark today! Not surprisingly, stocks sold off and RevShark's correction prediction came to be. Here is what I wrote to Rev in Columnist Conversation: "I believe the obvious and consensus trade is to sell as the markets have ripped from Wednesday's lows -- of course there is a lot of space between then and now. But I am making what I believe to be the less obvious and contrary trade -- and I am buying. I believe markets will be relieved and that many are "offsides" for a further market advance. The beauty here is that you and I employ a level of transparently in our real-time trades, exercising our beliefs and show our analysis that yields our conclusions. Either outcome, I like -- and I hope is helpful to our subs." Where was the Divine Ms. M today when I needed her? On the other hand, I don't even know how to respond to Roger Arnold's over-the-top column on a "failing" Bank of America!!!!?!?!?!   But I shall remain respectful. From Columnist Conversations: "I intended to respond to your BAC column but it's been a hectic day and I didn't get the chance. I am diametrically opposed to your view, conclusion and analysis. The only way to deal with your speculative claims is to respond with facts. In the fullness of time I will show you my spreadsheets, which show that the bank's balance sheet is significantly improved and that it is growing its loan portfolio. The key to a bank's future growth is its capital and deposits, and Bank of America has plenty of both." Futures are up after the close. Up five handles -- Facebook (FB) effect? Futures recovered nearly half of the 30-point drop as of 4:40 p.m. ET. They bent but didn't break. SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) closed down $2.07 -- it was down $3.10 at the worse level of the day. Technically, it looks like we had the third repudiation of SPY $191 and we have the support at the Wednesday gap at $185. But, so obvious! The U.S. dollar weakened. Gold was up another $4.40, continuing its multiday skein higher. Crude oil rose by 60 cents. The correlation between stocks and energy prices was abandoned today. In agricultural commodities, wheat was schmeissed (down eight cents) and corn was flat. Lumber was strong. Bonds reversed slightly to the upside after early morning weakness. Yields were flat to down two basis points across the maturities range. Municipals were well-bid and high yield was slightly lower in price and higher in yield. I am all in Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) and the three-day winning streak stayed intact. I finally like the developing price action. Apple (AAPL) was a feature and I contributed my two bits!  Banks, though well off their highs, were up on the day in a broadly lower tape. Life insurance stocks continued their steady descent; we have nearly 25% gains on MetLife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) shorts now. Staples were strong, absolutely and relatively, with gains in Procter & Gamble (PG), 3M (MMM) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB). Oils were mixed despite stronger crude prices. Media continued to get crushed; my gains are building up in my short book in this sector, where I'm short Comcast (CMCSA) and Disney (DIS). Old tech was crippled today, led by Microsoft (MSFT) and Buffett fav IBM (IBM). Another new low for iShares China Large-Cap (FXI). A short and on the Best Ideas List.  Autos were stable. Ford (F) was down and General Motors (GM) was up.  I am sticking to these shorts, but trimmed considerably last week. (T)FANG was broadly lower, ex Facebook (see below). I have been warning about this acronym for two months and its underperformance is conspicuous."The Day of Reckoning Near for the (T)FANGs?" from two weeks ago. Amazon (AMZN) was down $18 ("A Long List of Reasons to Short Amazon") and Netflix (NFLX) is really breaking down. I recently wrote up both and shorted -- NFLX is on my Best Ideas List (10/12/2015 at $113).  NOSH was not tasty, with Nike (NKE) and Starbucks (SBUX) weighing it down. CRABBY was not so; it was up across the board, though timidly so. Miracle of miracles!  Potash (POT), Radian Group (RDN) and Twitter (TWTR) showed some life after death today. All higher, but modestly so. eBay (EBAY) missed and guided lower after the close. Shares down by 11%. Mo mo oh no! Biotech was a wreck, with broad losses in the primary and secondary names. iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) was down by almost 4%, led by rollup Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) going down and by Mallinckrodt (MNK). The same sellers in IBB are likely selling (T)FANG. Facebook's results were the "world's fair." Nothing NOT to dislike!
