Stocks on the Move: Crocs, Disney, Kodak and More
POPS (stocks that jumped higher)
Crocs (CROX) popped 6%. The rubber clog maker rose on no news. Finerman: Still like it and hanging on through earnings.
Honda Motor (HMC) popped 4%. The Japanese carmaker raised its full-year forecast thanks to higher sales in Europe, China and India. Najarian: A big pop on strong U.S. sales.
Pacific Ethanol (PEIX) popped 12%. The government picked PEIX as one of three firms building the first plant to make ethanol from wheat straw, wood chips and corn. Macke: Use this to take profits. Ethanol was last year’s fad.
Disney (DIS) popped 2%. After dropped Tuesday on a Citigroup downgrade, Pali Research swept in with an upgrade. Macke: Sticking with it even though a recession is a bad time to own Disney.
Boeing (BA) popped 2%. The company boosted the number of jetliners it delivered this quarter, sending up profits and its forecast. Adami: BA is now a long-term stock to own.
E*TRADE (ETFC) popped 10%. The online broker, which has plummeted recently, rallied after word of insider buying. Finerman: An empathetic “eh.”
DROPS (stocks that slid lower)
Align Technology (AGN) dropped 15%. The makers of InvisAlign dental braces forecast 2008 sales below estimates. Najarian: This kind of thing is the first expense people cut back on in a tough economy.
Eastman Kodak (EK) dropped 3%. The world’s largest photography company said costs associated with inkjet printers hurt profits. Adami: Missed EPS but beat revenues? That means lousy margins. Stay away.
Tesoro (TSO) and Valero (VLO) both dropped 2%. The refiners slid lower as the crack spread fell 4%. Finerman: After having a huge run, a little profit taking was inevitable.
