Pops & Drops: Eastman Kodak, Procter & Gamble...

Following are the day’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of Eastman Kodak and Procter & Gamble popped while Potash and Motorola dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

Eastman Kodak (EK) popped 25%. Strong quarterly results from licensing deals soothed concerns about Kodak’s financial health. - Very good, says Tim Seymour.

Procter & Gamble (PG) popped 2%. The company posted a better-than-expected profit with price cuts and increased advertising bringing more shoppers back to its brands. - I like this name right now, says Pete Najarian.

Time Warner Cable (TWC) popped 2%. The company initiated a regular dividend of 40 cents per share, exceeding Wall Street expectations by almost a dime. - I think it goes higher from here, says Guy Adami.

UnitedHealth (UNH) popped 1%. This and other insurance names traded higher on a belief the President may back off reform. - If you're in this stock I'd take profits, says Pete Najarian.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Potash (POT) dropped 5%. The fertilizer firm reported a 70 percent drop in quarterly earnings and issued a profit outlook well below expectations. - I'd stay away, counsels Joe Terranova.

Motorola (MOT) dropped 12%. The company forecast a loss for the current quarter due to heavy spending to bring more smartphones to the market, disappointing investors who had expected the cellphone maker to post a profit. - Not good, says Tim Seymour.

Norfolk Southern (NSC) dropped 4%. The railroad posted a 32 percent decline in quarterly profit -- worse than Wall Street expected – largely due to weak freight volumes. - I think the rails have more room to fall, says Guy Adami.

3M (MMM) dropped 2%. Despite strong earnings, investors were more focussed on their outlook which was mixed. - This is a core longer-term holding for me, says Joe Terranova.
