Stocks added to gains despite a disappointing survey of manufacturing activity in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic, but after an increase in a gauge of U.S. economic activity.

The market had been higher since stocks began trading after several positive earnings reports and news that jobless claims fell more than expected gave investors reason to believe the economy is improving.

So which individual stocks are worth watching today? Here are six that are on the move:
Netflix

The entertainment internet service was upgraded to neutral from sell at Janney Capital.

-----------La-Z-Boy
The furnishing company was downgraded to hold from buy at BB&T Capital Markets.
