POPS (stocks that jumped higher)
Dow Chemical (DOW) popped 13%. CEO Andrew Liveris backed away from plans to sell the firm’s rapidly growing agricultural unit. - I want to see the profit report before I develop a thesis, says Joe Terranova.
CKE Restaurants (CKR) popped 7%. Although revenue has been weak, investors are betting that as the economy turns so will sales Carl’s Jr & Hardee’s. - In the space I like MCD or YUM better, says Guy Adami.
Anadarko (APC) popped 8%. The company discovered oil off the coast of Sierra Leone, opening up the potential for future discoveries in the area. - Good for them, says Karen Finerman.
Caterpillar (CAT) popped 10%. Investors turned bullish on construction after the Federal Reserve's Beige Book survey showed half of Federal Reserve districts saw evidence the U.S. economy had improved by the end of August. - When the cycle turns I think Caterpillar should become more profitable, speculates Tim Seymour.
Amazon (AMZN) popped 7%. BofA/Merrill upgraded the stock to a ‘buy’ from ‘neutral’ citing a resurgence in e-commerce. - I'm a buyer around $84.50, says Guy Adami.
AMR Corp (AMR) popped 30%. The parent of American Airlines shot higher after the company said it had bolstered its liquidity and planned to take steps that include buying new planes in a bid to return to profitability. - I think it's a short covering rally, says Guy Adami.
Nokia (NOK) popped 5%. New chips make it possible for the company to partner with Intel. Analysts had previously said Intel's chip-and-chipset platforms would be too power-hungry for Nokia handsets. - I'd take profits, counsels Tim Seymour. I did.
DROPS (stocks that slid lower)
BorgWarner (BWA) dropped 7%. KeyBanc said the company may miss on earnings due to weak European production and cut it to a ‘hold’ from ‘buy.” - I'm short, reveals Karen Finerman.
