Pops & Drops: Newmont Mining, Procter & Gamble

Following are the week’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of Newmont Mining and Procter & Gamble popped while Home Depot and Hewlett-Packard dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

Newmont Mining (NEM) popped 10%. The largest US gold producer moved higher along with the spot price of gold. - I like this stock, counsels Tim Seymour.

Procter & Gamble (PG) popped 5%. A mid-week upgrade from Barclays raised the stock to “overweight.” - I think it's a great place to hide for the summer, counsels Steve Grasso.

Morgan Stanley (MS) popped 5%. Along with JPMorgan, this firm has emerged as a top beneficiary of the big boom in secondary offering activity. - I think this stock takes out $30, counsels Joe Terranova.

Sears (SHLD) popped 10%. Traders speculate this could be a short squeeze after the retailer posted an unexpected first quarter profit. - They also extended some credit agreements which is good for the balance sheet, adds Tim Seymour.

US Steel (X) popped 6%. This and other steelmakers made gains along with the price of base metal. - I'd steer clear of this stock, counsels Steve Grasso.

Autodesk (ADSK) popped 7%. The largest maker of engineering-design software posted first quarter results that topped estimates.

Citigroup (C ) popped 1%. Although most banks with big credit card exposure sold-off, investors kept Citi in the green for the week.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Home Depot (HD) dropped 6%. Although the company reported higher-than-expected quarterly earnings investors found the results disappointing in comparison to those from rival Lowe's. - I think it's worth a look at these levels, counsels Pete Najarian.

Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) dropped 3%. The tech titan gave a disappointing outlook for full-year revenue and said it will lay off another 2 percent of its workforce as consumers and businesses cut spending on computers.
