Stocks gained on a brighter outlook for banks ahead of earnings releases, and as debt troubles in Europe eased after a successful Portuguese bond offering.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained more than 65 points a day after the major indexes closed higher as earnings season got off to a strong start.

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

Apple Inc
The computer manufacturer's price target raised to $395 from $365 at RBC. The firm expected a strong first quarter thanks to unprecedented product demand.

----------

AK Steel Holding Corp
The steel producer was downgraded to sell from neutral at UBS. The firm cited valuation as the reason for the downgrade. They also said they don't see a buyer.

-----------

Goodrich Corporation
The aerospace company was trading at all-time high levels Wednesday morning.

-----------
Genworth Financial Inc
The financial security company was downgraded to market perform from outperform at Raymond James.

-----------

Eldorado Gold Corporation
The gold mining company was upgraded to outperform from neutral at Macquarie Research.

-----------

Talbots
The clothing retailer received a couple of downgrades Wednesday morning from Janney Capital and Nomura. Both firms downgraded the company to neutral from buy and said the turnaround it expected is nowhere in sight.
