Big Lots - The discount retailer moved higher after Citigroup analyst Nathan Rich initiated coverage on the stock at "buy" with a price target of $36.
Goldcorp - The stock turned lower after Credit Suisse cut the gold miner to "neutral" from "outperform" and slashed the target price to $45 from $58.
ArcelorMittal - The world's biggest steelmaker will write down the value of its European business by $4.3 billion.
Greenbrier - The maker of railroad freight car equipment rejected a sweetened offer from American Railcar (ARII), controlled by activist investor Carl Icahn, sending shares lower.
Cintas - The stock is down despite earnings and guidance that were roughly in line with expectations; gross margins were weaker.
