Lincoln National Corporation’s stock (NYSE: LNC) has gained 7% in the last week, outperforming the S&P 500 (down 0.6%). Further, the same pattern was observed over the last ten days (9.6% vs 5.2%). That said, the trend was quite opposite before that – it has lost 45% YTD and 30% MTD.

The firm is an American holding company that operates multiple insurance and retirement businesses. It announced last week that it has priced two underwritten public offerings of depositary shares, worth $1 billion in aggregate, representing interests in preferred stock. Further, Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock status from neutral to buy. Overall, the above two factors were primarily responsible for the recent run up in the stock.
