What a week for the market. 

Despite being within 1% of the all-time high in the S&P Index, this week's feature was a number of investment potholes --relatively large-sized individual fundamental disappointments followed by marked stock price drops.

Celgene (CELG) , Bristol-Myers (BMY) , Charter Communications (CHTR) , Universal Health Services (UHS) , McKesson (MCK) , Amerisource Bergen (ABC) , Liberty Interactive (LVNTA) , American Airlines (AAL) , Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) , Hershey (HSY) are examples of those potholes.

The market is no longer homogenous -- and opportunities to deliver good investment returns on both the long and short sides have developed.

Know what you own and why.
