  • The Treasury Department says it will delay penalties for large employers who fail to provide workers with health insurance, after being inundated by questions from the business community about the finer points of the health-care overhaul. The requirements were initially scheduled to begin when the bulk of the health-care law takes effect next year, but the administration now will wait until 2015 before enforcing mandatory employer and insurer reporting guidelines. [View news story]

  • The meme during the 70s was that gold and oil moved together. Consumers of today have no such luck as the bear market in gold is met by a crude market refusing to budge. WTI's (USO +1.6%) gain today has the lead month just under $100/barrel and the highest price in nearly a year. Egypt's maybe-crumbling government is as good of an excuse as any for the recent rise. The energy sector (XLE +0.1%) ekes out a gain as the broader market falls. [View news story]
    LOL - gee maybe it would be different if ben encouraged TBTF banks to massive selling of oil futs in the wee hours

  • Unrest in Egypt is helping add to anxiety in the oil markets (USO +1.4%), but it is not likely to significantly lift oil prices that already have been elevated for months due to Middle East turmoil, says the head of Middle East research for IHS CERA. There is enough supply in the oil market today that any potential disruption of the Suez Canal transit route would not be significant. [View news story]

  • Well-trafficked Yahoo News (YHOO +1.9%) gets a redesign that's light on major UI changes, but delivers much better performance and (much like Yahoo's home page news feed) gives users the ability to customize their news stream. Yahoo News is still the most-visited news site in the U.S. (Yahoo reported getting 81.2M monthly unique visitors back in 2011), but as with other top Yahoo properties (Sports, Finance, etc.), user complaints about Yahoo's upkeep (or lack thereof) have been growing. [View news story]

  • "I was wrong about Treasurys (TLT, TBT)," Jeff Gundlach tells the WSJ of his recent expectation the 10-year yield would never hit 2.5%. However, he tells CNBC, "July will not be a repeat of May and June ... the liquidation cycle appears to have run its course with emerging market bonds (EMB), junk bonds (HYG, JNK), munis (MUB), and MBS (MBB) now recovering sharply." Gundlach has scheduled a special conference call for this afternoon. [View news story]

  • More on Smith & Wesson (SWHC): FQ4 beats across the board as total sales jumped 37.6% Y/Y. Demand was high across virtually all product lines, constraining production capacity which resulted in additional growth in its order backlog. For FQ1, the company expects net sales to be between $162M and $167M, which would represent year-over-year growth of approximately 21% at the midpoint. Analysts are expecting $141M in net sales. [View news story]
