Stocks sink amid late sell-off.
 US stocks morning rally was met with late sell off as long term investors continue to book off profits on Tuesday; despite the strong earning results from Macy’s (M), WalMart (WMT) and Home Depot (HD). Dow (-0.78%), Nasdaq (-0.56%), S&P (-0.85%) and Russell (-0.73%) included, were settled lower as the 10Y yield remained above 1.64% when New York closed.

Crude futures lost buyers as news hit the wires that US and Iran may revive the nuclear deal that could send more supplies. The black gold settled below $65.50/bl and gapped lower on Wednesday. Gold continues its upward trajectory, above $1,870/oz as of this writing, as LME dealers continue to bid up amid higher inflation concerns and easy going Feds that propelled further Dollar weakness.

Risk off sentiments, saw Swiss seized the reign of short term demand, while on firmed bid from medium and long term accounts as Yen ran in the intermediary across all horizons; while offering Aussie, Loonie and Dollar. Euro overtook Sterling in the short to medium term demand, which might suggest a reversal in EUR/GBP exchange rate.

OUR PICK – Altria Group (MO, NYSE)
Trading the triangle. After reaching the second profit target, Altria was sold-off on April 19th after rumors hit the street that the Biden administration is seeking to ban menthol cigarettes, in light of FDA findings that menthols are harder to quit. The ban might take years to implement and industry leaders were reported to be ready to fight the ban in court. This might put Altria under selling pressure in the short to medium term, but the 6.88% dividend yield is hard to beat for some long term income investors. If you short, cut loss if price break $50.50 and closed above $50.80.
