Pops & Drops: AIG, General Mills...

Following are the week’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of AIG and General Mills popped while Dell and Freeport-McMoRan dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

AIG (AIG) popped 10%. The ‘dash for trash’ continued on hopes the government might restructure terms of this insurance giant’s bailout. - I don't see anything fundamental here and I'd stay away, counsels Karen Finerman.

U.S. Natural Gas Fund (UNG) popped 3%. This ETF that tracks the price of nat gas was bid higher on speculation parts of the nation could see a colder than normal fall. - I also think nat gas is heading higher, speculates Joe Terranova.

General Mills (GIS) popped 5%. The maker of Cheerios said profits jumped 51% in the second quarter and the company increased its full year earnings forecast. - I like this company for its gluten free cereals, says Steve Grasso.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Dell (DELL) dropped 8%. Investors didn’t like hearing that Dell paid a 67% premium for its $3.9 billion acquisition of Perot Systems. - I think Dell is a buy at $14.25, says Guy Adami.

Moody's (MCO) dropped 20%. Hearings into whether the company knowingly issued incorrect ratings were postponed until next week after Republicans asked for more time to review a whistleblower's complaint. - I have to wonder what's left of their franchise, says Karen Finerman.

Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) dropped 4%. Investors clobbered the miner as the price of metals retreated this week. - I would not sell it short, counsels Joe Terranova.

UnitedHealth (UNH) dropped 11%. Nervous investors sold-off health care stocks as the Senate Finance Cmte debated reform. - I'd just stay away, says Steve Grasso.

Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) dropped 8%. Cowen & Co downgraded the teen retailer to ‘underperform’ from ‘neutral’ citing weakness in the sector. - I think the stock trades down to $28.50, says Guy Adami.
