Pops & Drops: Merck, Pulte...

Following are the day’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of Merck and Pulte Homes popped while Research In Motion and the Dow Transports dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

Merck (MRK) popped 6%. The drug giant confirmed its full year targets and forecast high single digits earnings growth until 2013. - And they have 15 late stage drugs in the pipeline, says Pete Najarian.

Pulte Homes (PHM) popped 3%. The homebuilder said orders jumped 35% from last year, however the company did report a larger than expected loss. - I think it has more upside, muses Joe Terranova.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Research In Motion (RIMM) dropped 3%. The WSJ reported that RIMM is the most vulnerable to Motorola’s new Droid phone. - I still think it's okay to own this stock, says Joe Terranova.

Dow Transports (.TRAN) dropped 2%. The transportation average gave back some gains after surging higher on Buffett's big Burlington Northern rail deal. - I'd stay away, says Guy Adami.

Saks (SKS) dropped 3%. Lazard cut the company to ‘sell’ from ‘hold,’ with a negative outlook on the retail sector.

Kraft (KFT) dropped 3%. Third quarter sales missed analysts’ expectations; also speculation suggests the company may scrap its bid for Cadbury.

Baker Hughes (BHI) dropped 6%. The oilfield services company released weak third quarter earnings and missed analysts’ expectations due to weak demand.
