Starting to see the volatility increase in individual stocks as a result of headlines, while market volatility is at two-year lows.

We lost six positions thanks to earnings disappointments, falling oil prices and the rising equity market. The spike in the market made REITs less desirable and DLR and HCN both declined to stop us out.
