Six in 60
Six in 60

Stocks rallied at the open Friday after a stronger-than-expected government jobs report, following a sharp global selloff in the previous session as investors were rattled over the ongoing European debt crisis.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average opened higher after nose-diving more than 500 points—its worst one-day fall since Dec. 2008.

Here are six stocks that are on the move:

Procter & Gamble
The global consumer products maker reported a better than expected fourth quarter profit, but the company forecasted a first quarter miss.

----------

Weight Watchers
The weight management services company traded lower despite beating second quarter earnings estimates and raising its 2011 forecast.

----------

Priceline.com
The travel deals web site surged after a pair of analysts boosted the company's price target. Second quarter profit also more than doubled.

-----------

Apple
The computer manufacturer's price target was raised to $540 from $450 at Needham.

-----------

AIG
The insurance company swung to a second quarter profit, but still fell short of Wall Street estimates.

----------

United Rentals
The equipment rental firm is a stock Cramer had his eye on all morning.
