Following are the day’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of Investment Technology Group (ITG) and United Therapeutics (UTHR) popped while Sprint Nextel (S) and Manitowoc (MTW) dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

Investment Technology Group (ITG) popped 2%. The company, which facilitates trading transactions, beat analyst profit expectations as this summer's volatility helped the bottom line. – Guy Adami likes ITG.

United Therapeutics (UTHR) popped 38%. The biotech boomed on results of its inhaled-high blood pressure medication, Viveta, which is in a late-stage trials. – Pete Najarian says “Wow!”

DROPS: (stocks that slid lower)

Sprint Nextel (S) dropped 3%. The mobile phone company saw profits drop 73% in the 3rd quarter, after losing close to 340,000 customers over service issues. – Jeff Macke doesn’t like this stock.

Manitowoc (MTW) dropped 11%. The cranes and construction equipment supplier pummeled, after the company indicated that a big jump in its backlog last quarter was not necessarily a signal that sales were accelerating. – Pete Najarian believes MTW will go higher.

Garmin (GRMN) dropped 7%. The Street took down this GPS navigation company on concerns that a bidding war may erupt between Garmin and TomTom over TeleAtlas. – Karen Finerman feels it’s a great product but also feels the valuation is high.

Target (TGT) dropped 5%. Target missed the bullseye, as the retailer followed the market south. – Jeff Macke is sticking with TGT.

Radian Group (RDN) dropped 14%. The nation's third-biggest mortgage insurer reporting a $700 million loss, as the slumping housing market and high defaults forced the company to post its first ever quarterly loss as a publicly traded company.

Cameco (CCJ) dropped 8%. More delays in the clean-up at Cigar Lake, the uranium mine that was flooded last year, sent shares lower. Production, which was slated to begin this year, has been pushed back to 2011.

Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) dropped 4%. A combination of lower oil and questions over future Fed rate cuts, sent the emerging market names lower.

Fresh Del Monte Produce (FDP) dropped 14%. Shares of the fruit and vegetable supplier went rotten, after the company announced a public offering of 12 million shares - which investors expect will water-down earnings per share.
