Coach (COH) popped 6%. The handbag maker beat profit estimates and showed a 21% jump in sales for the quarter, which included Christmas. – Part of the retail melt-up, says Karen Finerman.
Brinker International (EAT) popped 22%.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Tom Brady. Just two weeks away from facing the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady is being called a "traitor" by Boston newspapers, after being photographed wearing a Yankees hat while holding hands with girlfriend Gisele in New York's West Village.

Ashtrays. Once a standard item in nearly every car in America, ashtrays and electric lighters could scarcely be found in most vehicles on display at the Detroit auto show this year. Experts say a combination of pressure from anti-smoking groups and demand for more cup holders have edged out the once ubiquitous ashtray. You can still get an ashtray if you like, by buying a "smokers group" option that costs between $15 and $100.
