POPS (stocks that jumped higher)
Sprint Nextel (S) popped 7%. The mobile phone operator reported a better than expected quarter on cost cutting and new subscribers. - I wouldn't go chasing these guys, counsels Pete Najarian.
Burger King (BKC) popped 6%. Bank of American upgraded the fast food company to ‘buy’ from ‘neutral’, - I like it going forward, says Pete Najarian, but I'll be looking for them to show growth.
Smithfield Foods (SFD) popped 15%. Barron’s wrote that the recent drop in share price from swine flu concerns have been overdone. - If you're in this stock, I think it's time to get out, counsels Karen Finerman

Schlumberger (SLB) popped 7%. Barron’s wrote that the company’s shares should benefit as the global economy starts to rebound. - 80% of their business comes from overseas, reminds Tim Seymour.
Cemex (CX) popped 19%. Positive data that suggested the housing slump may be moderating sent shares of this cement maker soaring. - I think it's a good play on housing, counsels Tim Seymour.
Macy’s (M) popped 9%. Investors may be hoping this department store giant wins customers from discount retailer Filene’s Basement, which has just filed for Chapter 11. - I think it's overdone, says Karen Finerman.
DROPS (stocks that slid lower)
Sysco (SYY) dropped 4%. Although earnings were inline with estimates, sales at the company, which distributes goods to restaurants, cafeterias and other food-service outlets, fell 4.5 percent. - I wouldn't touch this stock here, says Guy Adami.
