POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

Bank Of America (BAC) popped 3%. Credit Suisse upgraded the stock to ‘Outperform’ from ‘Neutral’ saying the banks decision to repay TARP "relieves a significant overhang on its shares." - I'd be a buyer, says Karen Finerman.

Airlines (XAL) popped 2%. The 19 largest U.S. airlines reported that 88.6% of their flights arrived on time, a new record. - Until we start to see fare discounting, I expect the trade to work, says Gary Kaminsky.

The Buckle (BKE) popped 5%. Better than expected same store sales sent shares of this specialty store higher. - Not too shabby, says Tim Seymour.

Boeing (BA) popped 4%. The aerospace giant said it delivered 29% more aircraft in 2009 than in 2008. - I can't get on board, says Karen Finerman.

Lennar (LEN) popped 13%. The homebuilder posted its first quarterly profit in almost three years. - I don't like the space, says Gary Kaminsky.

Infospace (INSP) popped 22%. The company raised its fourth-quarter revenue and pretax income outlook, helped by strong volumes from existing customers and newly launched accounts. - I really like this name, says Joe Terranova.

Vivus (VVUS) popped 11%. Trials of the company’s experiment weight-loss drug showed it reduced sleep apnea. - Very impressive, says Tim Seymour.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

Hot Topic (HOTT) dropped 8%. The teen retailer reported a double digit decline in same stores sales and cut its outlook. - This stock is not getting it done, says Joe Terranova.

GameStop (GME) dropped 15%. The company’s stock declined the most in seven years after fourth-quarter earnings fell short of estimates, largely due to disappointing holiday sales.
