Closing J.P. Morgan Chase

I cut my three banking positions down to two by closing #JPM. I'm not a banking expert, so I'm simply reducing my risk in a sector I don't have a great feel for; your milage may vary.

Plus, from a value perspective, I think my #GS position is more attractive. Nothing wrong with JPM, per se, just more of a gut call than anything. The market has been up the past few days, and I feel the need to sell something.

Price: $112.94

Gain: 0.7%.

Closing out the end out of my #GOOGL position for now, as Amazon and Facebook are taking share from them. Management painted a less-than-positive picture on the earnings call. Price: $1,186.64

TRADE: Trimming Raytheon

Let's trim some #RTN for a profit; I've had a big defense position for a long time, so let's book some gains to be safe. Price: $182.70, sold about 20% of the position.

TRADE: Closing Amgen

#AMGN has some legal risk that has come to light, so I'm just going to dump it and take a very small loss. Price: $190.77
