Limited Brands

The catalyst: Although Limited Brands posted a quarterly profit that topped Wall Street's view its forecast fell short of analysts' expectations.

The trade: “This is an unforgiving market,” says Stephanie Link. “Expect the Street to sell news like this.”


Dollar Tree

The catalyst: Although Dollar Tree posted a higher quarterly profit, much like Limited Brands, its forecast also missed expectations and investors cashed out.

The Trade: “If you’re in it, I’d wait for the next pop, then I'd take profits,” says Brian Kelly.



The catalyst: Investors may be taking profits in Cummins, a diesel engine manufacturer, due to fears that the crisis in Greece could ripple across the economies of Europe in unexpected ways.

The Trade: “I’m short and staying short as a comment on the entire industrial complex,” says trader Stephen Weiss.
