POPS (stocks that jumped higher)
American Express (AXP) popped 7%. A favorable article in Barron’s said the company has lots of liquidity and less risk than competitors. - Whitney Tilson likes this stock, reminds Tim Seymour.
Dendreon (DNDN) popped 16%. The drug maker is expected to present data on its cancer treatment, Provenge, at an upcoming medical conference. - That's a huge move, exclaims Pete Najarian. I'd keep an eye on it.
Wal-Mart (WMT) popped 2%. The world’s largest retailer revealed an upward trend in March same-store sales due to improved customer traffic. - This stock bounced off $50, says Jeff Macke. It's a textbook move.
