Following are the day’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of JPMorgan and Toyota popped while Dell and Caterpillar dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

JPMorgan (JPM) popped 8%. The bank filed a countersuit after Washington Mutual accused regulators of agreeing to an unreasonably low $1.9 billion price when they arranged for the sale of banking operations to JPMorgan last year. - I think this stock could continue to run, says Tim Seymour.

The Fast Money traders take a look at todayâ??s biggest market movers.

MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR) popped 7%. This stock moved on speculation that BASF might bid for the firm. - There's a lot of speculation, says Pete Najarian.

CB Richard Ellis (CBG) popped 64%. The commercial real estate firm eased credit agreements with lenders and received upgrades from JPMorgan and JMP Securities. - The agreement means financing at a higher rate but at least it allows them to finance, says Tim Seymour.

Toyota (TM ) popped 4%. The car makers announced the May launch of a more fuel-efficient Prius to take on Honda’s Insight. - Good for them, says Jeff Macke.

Jabil Circuit (JBL) popped 36%. The maker of electronic components reported a second-quarter loss that was in line with previous forecasts and the company gave a more stable outlook.

China Petroleum & Chemical (SNP) popped 6%. China’s energy company revised its full year profit forecast.

SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) popped 1%. Gold moved modestly higher as the dollar moved modestly lower.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Dell (DELL) dropped 2%. Investors took profits in this stock after a recent run largely due to the appeal of new products. - I just don't think they're that good a company, bristles Jeff Macke.

Caterpillar (CAT) dropped 2%. The world’s largest maker of construction equipment closed lower despite the fact that for the first time in seven months durable goods orders increased. - There was a rumor that Caterpillar might need to close a plant for a short while, explains Guy Adami.

Salesforce.Com (CRM) dropped 2%. Morgan Stanley downgraded the company to “underweight” from “equal weight” citing near-term risks

Constellation Brands (STZ) dropped 5%. The world’s largest winemaker lowered its fiscal-year and 2009 earnings forecast, disappointing analysts.
