The catalyst: Analysts at Citigroup lowered their price target on shares of J.C. Penney from $40.00 to $24.00 in a research report issued to clients and investors on Tuesday.

The trade: Be careful not to price in a turnaround that hasn’t happened, says Karen Finerman, president of Metropolitan Capital.



The catalyst: Although the catalyst was unclear, cautious comments from Ben Bernanke about the economy certainly didn’t help the stock.

The trade: I think the sector is really stretched, says Mike Khouw, managing director and head of equity derrivatives CRT Capital. It might be time to hit the pause button on the home builders.
