Washington Mutual March Puts

Following-up the earlier call this week for FRE puts, today we have another financial that is experiencing a lot of put buying and that is Washington Mutual (WM).

Stocks on the 52 Week High List - Energy and Rails

 This stock is a little expensive at this time but the industry has been strong with Warren Buffet purchasing shares of Burlington Northern around $80 according to reports and Carl Icahn purchasing shares of American Railcar (ARII), Greenbrier (GBX) and a 9.5% stake in CSX Corp (CSX).

Annaly Capital Continues to Perform Well

This is a difficult market. Agricultural Chemicals work some days, Mosaic (MOS) is the one I have mentioned before but can't see getting into until the market breaks to the upside. Gold works some weeks, with Barrick Gold (ABX) and Newmont Mining (NEM) being my favorites. Banks move on certain days, State Street (STT) and Northern Trust (NTRS) I have recommended before. But overall this is a really tough market with next to nothing working on a continued basis.

Oil Heading for a New High – Stocks to Own

Crude oil peaked at 100 in January, dipped into a trading range of 86 to 94 for about a month, and has now broken out to the upside reaching 98 this morning. This has allowed a number of oil drilling/exploration and oil equipment/services companies to rally and they are doing quite well today.

Stay with conservative stocks.

This market is still not out of the woods and stocks will struggle as we go forward for some time. I still like the banks with the Fed continuing to lower rates another 1% over the next 4 months.
