Money Flow: More Out Of Bonds Then Into Stocks

Last day of the month, S&P up 0.9 percent for the month. End of quarter for Lehman ,Morgan Stanley , and Goldman Sachs .

Dell up 8 percent pre-open on a stronger than expected report. But oil is up, bonds are reversing their recent decline, and other metals like gold and copper are up slightly today, though a modest dollar rally continues.

Art Cashin made a good point yesterday: that the amount of money going out of the bond market seemed to be much greater than the amount of money going into stocks.

Elsewhere:

1) Solar companies, which were killed yesterday as oil dropped, are rallying a bit this morning on fairly strong volume, for solar stocks. Suntech and Yingli Green up 6 percent, LDK Solar up 3 percent.

2) J Crew down 17 percent pre-open,they beat estimates, but guidance for the current quarter and full year is below estimates. JCG cut to sell at Citigroup

3) Tiffany up 4 percent, beat expectations handily($0.50 vs. $0.41 expected) and guided higher slightly for the full year. It was international that again carried the day: comp store sales in the U.S. were flat (though sales at the New York flagship were up 16 percent due to tourist buying!), sales in Asia Pacific up 4 percent on a constant exchange basis (Japan was weaker than expected), European comp store sales up 12 percent on a constant exchange basis.
