Lincoln National (LNC), a short on the Best Ideas List, had a small miss in sales and a $0.07/share miss on earnings.

These will still be around when current pullback has passed.

I've repeatedly expressed concerns over the past 12 months about the risks of technology in an interconnected world. Remember the words above. Commit them to memory, as they're relevant to every investor after the tripling in the averages that we've seen since the Generational Bottom of 2009. Just as the "talking heads" who dismiss China, Greece, Russia and Latin America as market threats, those who dismiss computer "glitches" as non-consequential should be locked in a close

Last week's short "Trade of the Week" MetLife (MET) is doing well (down $1), but the long "Trade of the Week" Ford (F) not so much.

Thus far I have added to the following shorts (all small transactions): SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) at $211.15, PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ) at $110.58, MetLife (MET) at $57.43  and Lincoln National (LNC) at $60.84.

My trades so far today have been to add to my long position on Ford (F) and Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit ETF (BGB), as well as to short more MetLife (MET).

I am going against the grain on this one and shorting MET at $57.40.

bullishMetLife upgraded at RBC Capital Markets

Jun 22, 2015 | 7:44 AM EDT

MET was upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform, RBC said. $68 price target. Developments in the regulatory arena and comments by MET management suggest that MET may launch another share repurchase program. MET may be better positioned than any other publicly traded life insurer to benefit from the rise in interest rates. Last, at a time when more investors than ever seemed to be focused on cash earnings in the life insurance sector as opposed to accounting results, the portion of Met's earnings that are cash has been increasing steadily. 

$455 million to sell on the close.
