Stock Pops and Drops
The Fast Money traders take a look at todayâ??s biggest market movers.

Frontline (FRO) popped 5%. The operator of oil tankers closed higher after a report suggested a refueling port in the United Arab Emirates would ban single hull vessels next year. - Fortunately they have a double hull fleet, chuckles Karen Finerman.

Nasdaq OMX (NDAQ) popped 3%. Susquehanna upgraded the stock to positive from neutral. - The chart looks good, says Tim Seymour. I think it could go a little higher.

Goodyear Tire (GT) popped 2%. The tire maker announced plans to raise tire prices in North America by as much as 6% to recover higher raw materials costs. - Good move for them, says Guy Adami.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Pulte Homes (PHM) dropped 5%. Investors bid this stock higher after strong results from rival Toll earlier in the week. - I don't think there's anything good in the space, muses Guy Adami.

Green Mountain (GMCR) dropped 10%. Although the company posted higher-than-expected quarterly results, shares fell as its first-quarter earnings outlook fell short of expectations. - Profits may be weaker next quarter, explains Pete Najarian.

The Buckle (BKE) dropped 5%. Goldman Sachs initiated coverage of this stock with a 'sell' rating citing limited drivers for EPS growth. - I wouldn't own it, counsels Karen Finerman.

Baxter (BAX) dropped 4%. Demand for one of this company’s drugs appears to be worse than expected.
