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.

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

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.
