Stocks to Watch: VF Corp, Whirlpool, Robert Half and More...

Six in 60
Six in 60

Stocks opened higher Thursday as a draft document showed plans for a wide-ranging response to the euro zone debt crisis and as investors cheered a handful of positive earnings news. However, gains were limited due to weakness among tech stocks.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained at the open after ending lower in the previous session.

Here are six stocks that are on the move:

VF Corp
The apparel company's second quarter profit beat estimates due in part to sales gains overseas. The firm also raised its 2011 revenue and sales forecast.

----------

Whirlpool
The appliance company reported a weaker than expected second quarter profit, hurt by rising costs and soft consumer demand in North America.

----------

Williams-Sonoma
The home products retailer was upgraded to outperform from neutral at Wedbush Securities.

-----------

Toll Brothers
The homebuilder was downgraded to hold from buy and Citi.

-----------

Robert Half
The staffing and consulting firm traded higher after getting upgraded to outperform from neutral at R.W Baird.

----------

Cheesecake Factory
The restaurant was downgraded to neutral from buy at Buckingham.
