Six in 60
Six in 60

Stocks tumbled Friday after employment rose far less than expected, shattering hopes that the economy was starting to regain momentum following a soft patch in the first half of the year.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average slid almost 1 percent after finishing almost 100 points higher in the previous session.

Here are six stocks that are on the move:

TJX Companies
The appararel retailer was upgraded to buy from neutral at Ticonderoga Securities with a price target of $65.

----------

Eagle Materials
The building materials company was downgraded to neutral from buy at Longbow Research.

----------

Bucyrus
The mining equipment maker was trading at all-time highs and up nearly 75 percent over the last year.

-----------

Google
The search engine giant was downgraded to equal-weight from overweight at Morgan Stanley saying margins will shrink as it undertakes aggressive hiring and ramps up advertising for new products.

-----------

Baidu
The internet company announced it was restructuring its business into four departments. Its Senior VP of Business Operations is also leaving for personal reasons.

----------

Merck
The global pharmaceuticals company was one of few bright spots with shares up six percent this month.
