Stocks fluctuated on Thursday after mixed economic news, including weak factory orders, but remained on track to post the best quarterly results in more than a decade.

Hess Corp
The oil and gas company's price target was raised to $105 from $95 at Credit Suisse, the firm saying it sees substantial potential upside if exploration wells are successful.


The online reservation service was downgraded to hold from buy at Citi, the firm saying it is a valuation call. The price target remains at $108.


U.S. Steel
The steel manufacturer was added to the short-term sell list at Deutsche Bank, the firm saying it expects the recent downward trend in US steel prices to continue.

The drilling contractor was upgraded to hold from sell at Miller Tabak, the firm citing a favorable outlook for the US natural gas market.
