Pops & Drops: Apple, Whirlpool...

Following are the week’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of Apple and Whirlpool popped while Barnes & Noble and the AmexAirline Index dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

Apple (AAPL) popped 7%. The Street continued to adore this stock especially after earnings blew away estimates. - I'm a buyer around $192 with a $190 stop, says Joe Terranova.

Whirlpool (WHR) popped 9%. The world’s largest maker of home appliances beat on earnings, increased its 09 outlook and give an upbeat sales forecast. - I think this stock is a buy, says Steve Grasso.

Yahoo (YHOO) popped 2%. Earnings topped estimates and comments from CEO Carol Bartz suggested businesses had started to stabilize. - with Carl Icahn resigning from the board I'm a seller, says Joe Terranova.

PNC Financial (PNC) popped 17%. The regional bank reported a profit for the quarter and said it will be able to repay government loans. - I'd stay away, counsels Steve Grasso. I think it's ahead of itself.

CME (CME) popped 9% Investors bid the exchange higher on speculation it may start clearing credit default swaps as soon as December. - I'd take a wait and see attitude, says Karen Finerman.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

CA Inc. (CA) dropped 5%. The software maker reported disappointing software bookings on Thursday, foreshadowing weak future revenue. - That's no good, says Gary Kaminsky.

Barnes & Noble (BKS) dropped 13%. Either investors didn’t care for its new "Nook" e-reader designed to compete with the Kindle or they're concerned about the price war launched by Walmart. - With the industry shifting I can't get behind a brick and mortar, explains Karen Finerman.

Airline Index (XAL) down 2%. By and large the airlines reported quarterly results that disappointed the Street. - American just put a price increase into effect, explains Gary Kaminsky. I'd keep on eye on the sector.
