What a Horrendous Number

Posted at 10:14 a.m. EDT on Friday, April 6.

We'll certainly have enough time to think and reflect on how horrible that report was, and Holy Cow, was it horrible.

Might as well just own up that while we may have strong retail sales and strong auto sales and maybe even stronger housing sales, we are not putting as many new people to work as we thought.

So what happens?

Energy gets slaughtered. These stocks have been going down, and they have hideous charts and they are the natural sales. Is it right?

Someone asked me about Schlumberger (SLB) last night, and I said it is having an amazing quarter and year and it can't be bought yet because it is probably going to $63.

I use that one as the example because it is the best. Of course, I want to own it at $63, but that's irrelevant if you already own it. I spoke to Devon (DVN) yesterday, and that company's doing terrifically, and again, that won't matter.

I know it sounds callous to say it doesn't matter. I am simply giving you what "they" will "sell" Monday morning.

Mining and resources-related stocks will get hammered, too, unless China cuts Sunday. These stocks are likely to be killed anyway after Alcoa (AA) reports, so the propensity will be to dump them.

Retail's tougher? Many might say that the employment report is backward-looking and that we just found out about monthly sales and for many retailers they were great. But the nitpickers will hark back to "weather abetted" as a reason to sell them.

Which leaves health care and consumer products companies with good yield.

Those should hold up, but they probably won't stabilize until midmorning.
