    • Just a 1% decline in the major averages (which are being helped by some high-profile earnings moves) is masking far greater carnage in a number of other sectors, notably healthcare (XLV -2.5%) and energy (XLE -2%).
    • Business development companies and mortgage REITs are being socked again as well, suggesting the worry may go beyond interest rates and to credit in general, especially as commodity prices continue to tumble - to pick one, crude oil at $48.06 per barrel is at its lowest price in about four months.
    • Among BDCs: Hercules Technology Growth (HTGC -4.2%), Triangle Capital (TCAP -3.3%), PennantPark Investment (PNNT -5.4%), Prospect Capital (PSEC -1.4%), Main Street Capital (MAIN -2.8%), TICC Capital (TICC -2.4%), KCAP Financial (KCAP -2.6%), THL Credit (TCRD -2.7%), FS Investment (FSIC -1.8%).

    • Continued strong economic data (June consumer confidence beat expectations) and apparently optimism over a Greek deal getting inked this weekend make for good excuses for today's selling in fixed income.
    • The U.S. 10-year yield is up seven basis points to 2.48%. Short-term rate futures continue to read more dovish than the Fed, predicting just one 25 basis point rate hike by year-end.
    • TLT -1.2%, TBT +2.4%.
    • Among the income favorites, utilities (XLU +0.6%) and equity REITs (IYR +0.2%) are being spared punishment today, leaving jittery investors to focus their selling in mortgage REITs.
    • Also in the red are BDCs, led by Prospect Capital (PSEC -2.5%) and Fifth Street Finance (FSC -1.5%). American Capital (ACAS -1.3%), Medley Capital (MDLY +0.1%), THL Credit (TCRD -1.2%), PennantPark (PNNT -1%).
