Pops & Drops: Burlington Northern, Starbucks, Kraft...

Following are the week’s biggest winners and losers. Find out why shares of Burlington Northern and AIG popped while Sunoco and Kraft Foods dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

EnerNOC(ENOC) was the pop of the week, as it blew through earnings Thursday, and was up 12 percent on Friday. Can the smart grid small-cap sustain growth? The Obama administration awarded $3.4 billion in smart grid grants last week.

I'd stay away at these levels, says Guy Adami. I'd look for a pullback.

POPS (stocks that moved higher)

FORD (F) popped 11%. The US automaker higher after reporting its first profit since 2005, also boosting its forecast.

Ford is going higher, Tim Seymour says.

Burlington Northern (BNI) popped 29%. The rail name surging after CEO Warren Buffett makes his biggest deal ever, buying up the rest of the company for $26 billion.

Go ahead and buy, but avoid the rest of the rails, Guy Adami says.

Starbucks (SBUX) popped 11%. The coffee chain gets a caffeine jolt this week after beating on earnings and boosting its full year earnings guidance.

Great news for Starbucks, Pete Najarian says.

Nvidia (NVDA) popped 10%. The chipmaker surges after profits jumped 74 percent due to higher margins and revenues.

Activision (ATVI) popped 4%. The game publisher pops after reporting a third quarter profit due to lower costs, reiterating its full year outlook.

It's a stock you might want to own just for a play, Adami says.

Homebuilders ETF (XHB) popped 6%. Homebuilder stocks higher as the first time home buyers tax credit gets extended until April 30.

A lot good for the housing sector this week, Seymour says.

General Electric (GE) popped 8%. Our parent company higher this week, jumping today on an upgrade at Bernstein to "outperform" from "market perform," citing progress in the NBC deal and more room to the upside.

Not a lot new for GE, Karen Finerman says.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Kraft Foods (KFT) dropped 3%. The food giant lower as third quarter sales missed analysts’ expectations, also on speculation the company may scrap its bid for Cadbury.
