I'm pressing my individual shorts in Lincoln National (LNC) , Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) now. As I did yesterday …

With the commoditization of asset management continuing apace and with investment management fees likely to remain under pressure plus a plethora of potential market headwinds in an already highly priced S&P, Morgan Stanley's (MS) share price seems vulnerable after its large advance ($20 a share since early summer 2016).

The market is maintaining and adding to its nice gains since our last update. Financials are very strong after Rep. Jeb Hensarling, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, called the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau a rogue agency in a WSJ opinion piece today. I read the article this morning, and it's a well-written piece. It won't make Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., happy, but the over-reaching by an unaccountable regulatory body looks headed for a dismantling, which would be good for the financial sector and the economy in my opinion.

Strong capital and cost controls also helped the investment banks' fourth-quarter results.

The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by about two bits to $51.40. Gold fell by $8 to $1,203. I am buyer, to replace the half position I sold soon. Ag commodities: wheat down $0.08, corn up $0.02, soybean down $0.05 and oats up $0.01. Lumber was flat. For the second day in a row bonds got schmeissed iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) down over a beaner, again. (Good sale in fixed income last week!) The 10-year bond yield rose by 7 basis points to 2.46%. The long bond yield rose by 5 basis points. The 2s/10s expanded by 4 basis points to about 124 basis points. Municipals got hit and so did closed-end muni-bond funds. High yield was junky - but Blackstone / GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB) rose by a penny. Banks continue to be sold for a second day in a row -- despite much higher bond yields and lower bond prices. Crickets from financial bulls -- who seem to rationalize the large move this week and lack of correlation to bonds as a random act. Our "Trade of the Week" (short C) is now down by 5.5% or $3 since the trade was discussed in my Diary. Retail remains for sale. But my view is that a sentiment extreme is developing. Insurance stocks got whacked, including fav Hartford Financial (HIG) . Brokerages got hit, too. Goldman Sachs (GS) , put on Best Ideas List last week at $242, is down to $231. Biotech was lower, but not materially so (Celgene (CELG)Allergan (AGN) lower). Hwwever, spec biotech roiled to the downside (Intrexon (XON) , Ziopharm Oncology (ZIOP) , Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD) , Aerie Pharmaceuticals (AERI) ). Autos mixed. Ford (F) up, General Motors (GM) down. Good for our
