Pops & Drops: GE, Intel, Disney and More
Following are today's biggest winners and losers, including GE, Intel, Disney and more.
TD Ameritrade pops 1%. Goldman Sachs initiated research coverage of the company today.
Intel pops 2%. Macke: "If Texas Instruments can blow up as badly as it did and still go higher, why not Intel?"
2008. The year coming to a close soon, 2008. It's one second longer. Dylan: "In case you didn't get enough fun this year."
GE drops 5%. Despite the announcement of Jay Leno getting his own nightly primetime show, the parent of CNBC drops after JPMorgan cuts its 2009 earnings estimate and says the fourth quarter will be a miss. Tim is optimistic about the company though, with its outlook and balance sheet. "I think this more the infrastructure play."
Disney drops 5%. The media giant is being sued by the Screen Actors Guild, which has urged its members to strike in order to pressure studios to restart contract talks. DryShips entering the discount cruise business may also impact the entertainment company, says Macke.
PepBoys plummets 26%. It's about the "haves and have-nots," says Karen, pointing out how AutoZone fared well today in comparison.
Toy Train Enthusiasts. According to Bloomberg, the holiday train show which has been on display in the Citigroup Center in Manhattan every holiday season since 1987 has been canceled this year. Citigroup, hit hard by the credit crisis, has canceled the event in order to save the $240,000 involved in sponsoring the event.
iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index Fund drops 4%. Tim says it's 60% off its low and believes China is still the emerging market to look into, especially with tonight's central economic policy team meeting.
Con-way drops 13%. Pete points to the company's cut in outlook, layoffs, slowing demand and sums it up: "Not so good."
T. Rowe Price drops 6%. Goldman rated it a Sell. "They've all been downgraded," notes Tim.
Kroger drops almost 6%. Macke's reasoning for the grocer's dip: residents of New Jersey can now hunt their own wild boar and get their "pigs for free."
