Stocks turned lower again amid investor nervousness over events unfolding in Libya and throughout the Middle East, and as retailers delivered mixed earnings reports.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 50 points, after dropping more than 100 points earlier, following three weeks of gains and reaching its highest level since June 5, 2008.

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

Home Depot
The home improvement retailer beat earnings and sales estimates and also raised its fiscal year outlook.


Barnes & Noble
The bookstore chain was taking a hit Tuesday, down as much as 9 percent. Third quarter earnings missed estimates and the company also suspended its dividend.


The drilling services company was trading at levels not seen in two-and-a-half years, with shares up more than 1 percent.


Spectra Energy
The gas distributor was downgraded to neutral from buy at Goldman Sachs.


Office Depot
The office supply retailer reported a surprise fourth quarter profit and shares were up more than 9 percent.


The telecommunications company was trading at lows not seen since July, 2009.
