He is personally short WFC-N. It is now well below the lows. He believes the markets will correct but be careful of buying the weakest bank in the sector. JPM-N or C-N would be preferred to watch.

(A Top Pick Jun 27/19, Down 66%) He sold Jan. 23 at a profit. It had rolled over. It is a wonderful airline among the airlines. If he were going to participate, he would buy their bonds, but it will take some time for the airlines to come back so it is not the place to put new money.
