Following are the day’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of Dendreon and Saks popped while Allergan and Pepsico dropped.
POPS (stocks that jumped higher)
Dendreon (DNDN) popped 9%. A Lazard Capital analyst upgraded shares on the sales potential for the prostate cancer drug Provenge. - That's a big pop, exclaims Pete Najarian.
Saks (SKS) popped 3%. JPMorgan upgraded the stock to ‘overweight’ from ‘neutral’ citing overly bearish sentiment.
Cox Radio (CXR) popped 2%. Cox Enterprises said it is extending a tender offer to buy the rest of Cox Radio Inc.'s publicly held shares it does not already own.
DROPS (stocks that slid lower)
Allergan (AGN) dropped 5%. In this economy, what’s a few wrinkles; investors bid the maker of Botox lower. - There was also takeover chatter that didn't pan out, adds Guy Adami.
Pepsico (PEP) dropped 4%. The softdrink maker proposed buying the outstanding shares it does not own in its two largest bottlers, Pepsi Bottling Group (PBG) and PepsiAmericas (PAS), in a $6 billion cash and stock deal. - Interesting, muses Karen Finerman.
U.S. Steel (X) dropped 11%. S&P put the company on a negative creditwatch and said steel prices may not improve this year. - I think that's a reason to get long, adds Joe Terranova.
Starbucks (SBUX) dropped 6%. Nothing percolating here, partly due to downgrades by UBS and Deutsche Bank over the past week. - Around $11 I think this stock gets interesting, counsels Pete Najarian.
Dell (DELL) dropped 7%. Investors turned bearish on this stock, perhaps because Oracle announced a deal to buy Sun Microsystems, allowing the company to compete in hardware as well as software. - I've been so wrong on this stock I just want to move on, sighs Guy Adami.
Lennar (LEN) dropped 19%. The homebuilder said it may sell as much $275 million in common stock.- They also have to roll debt, adds Joe Terranova.
Textron (TXT) dropped 16%. Investors grew skeptical that last week’s speculation of a takeover was just that – speculation.
Huntington Bancshares (HBAN) dropped 20%. Investors bid this stock significantly lower ahead of earnings Tuesday.
