Stocks to Watch: Kroger, Coach, Autodesk and More...

The Dow opened lower Friday after Caterpillar's earnings missed estimates, offsetting pre-market gains from GE's robust quarterly results and the agreement on a new Greek rescue deal.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped at the open after ending sharply higher in the previous session.

Here are six stocks that are on the move:

Kroger
The supermarket was upgraded to outperform from market perform at BMO Capital.

----------

Ruby Tuesday
The restaurant was downgraded to underperform from neutral at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

----------

Nokia
The cellular firm was upgraded to sector perform from underperform at Scotia Capital.

-----------

Coach
The clothing and accessories company was downgraded to neutral from outperform at Cowen and Company. The firm say maintaining double-digit same-store sales growth may prove difficult due to the slow economic recovery.

-----------

Autodesk
The software designer was upgraded to buy from hold at Jefferies.

----------

SunPower
The solar company was downgraded to buy from Lazard Capital.
