POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

Boeing (BA) popped 2%. The maker of commercial jets continued to move higher after winning a government contract worth $1 billion. - I don't like this stock, reveals Steve Cortes. It's too tethered to defense spending.

Burger King (BKC) popped 7%. The hamburger chain said profits rose 16% due to improved margins and other factors. - I prefer Yum or McDonald's, explains Pete Najarian.

Chico’s (CHS) popped 8%. The retailer reported second quarter profits more than doubled largely due to cost savings and strong sales. - I think this stock could go to $14, speculates Guy Adami.

Big Lots (BIG) popped 7%. The discounter beat on second quarter profits and forecast stronger than expected results going forward. - I think discount retailers should do well in this environment, says Steve Cortes.

Mastercard (MA) popped 2%. Jefferies initiated coverage of this stock with a ‘Buy” and a $240 price target. - Giddyup, says Pete Najarian.

Corinthian Colleges (COCO) popped 6%. The company reported higher than expected fourth quarter earnings and also gave a strong full year outlook. - I think it could go higher, says Guy Adami.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Manitowoc (MTW) dropped 5%. Standard and Poor’s replaced this company from the S&P 500 with CareFusion. - That's too bad, says Joe Terranova.

Staples (SPLS) dropped 2%. The company reported second quarter profits fell 38% because of slumping sales. - The chart looks like a double top, says Joe Terranova.
