    Apr 8, 2013 8:53 PM | about stocks: PFG, LNC

    This is an update on the paired trade made one day back on April 6, 2013. It was based on prices based on market close of April 5, 2013

    Sell short 200 shares of PFG (PRINCIPAL FINANCIAL GROUP)
    Buy 257 shares of LNC (LINCOLN NATIONAL CORP)

    The trade is now showing profit after 1 day, and as the picture below attests, this paired trade is converging very well in one day.
