I am bidding below the market for more Potash (POT) and Oaktree Capital (OAK). I am offering above the market to short more Lincoln National (LNC), MetLife (MET) and Microsoft (MSFT). I live at $20.50 on the buyside for Altisource Residential (RESI). I added to my iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) short this morning. Doing nothing on Apple (AAPL). I am bidding under the market for all five regional banks.

In the life insurance space, Lincoln National Corporation (LNC) reported a near $0.20 beat, but all of the beat was a recapture from the reinsurance subsidiary. Also, the company's tax rate was lower than expected. Comparing "apples to apples," LNC's core EPS missed consensus expectations.
