Pops & Drops: Iron Mountain, Human Genome, NetApp and More

Thursday, 10 Mar 2011 | 7:34 PM ET

Stocks closed near session lows and below psychologically important levels, as global worries triggered by European sovereign debt and a slowing in Chinese growth escalated after news of violence against protesters in Saudi Arabia.

Amidst it all, the "Fast Money" traders found the following to be the most notable market movers on Thursday.

Stock Pops & Drops
The Fast Money traders take a look at today's biggest market movers.

POPS (stocks that went higher)

Iron Mountain (IRM) popped 5%: This stock rose after Elliott management called for a strategic review of Iron Mountain's capital allocation and operational efficiency, said Karen Finerman, president of Metropolitan Capital Advisors.

Human Genome (HGSI) popped 13%: Shares jumped after news the FDA approved a lupus drug, the first new treatment for the disease in more than 50 years. The drug was developed in collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline . At a certain point, GSK may seek to acquire Human Genome, said Guy Adami of Drakon Capital.

DROPS (stocks that went lower)

NetApp (NTAP) drops 6%: The data storage products maker caught a downgrade from Susquehanna, which took it to 'neutral' from 'positive.' Options trader Pete Najarian said this stock has fallen to an attractive level.

Smithfield Foods (SFD) dropped 2%: Being as this food company recently reported a strong quarter and with pork margins becoming manageable, Joe Terranova of Virtus Investment Partners thinks now is the time to buy SFD.
