Pops & Drops: Green Mountain, Electronic Arts...

Following are moves you might have missed. Find out why shares of Green Mountain Coffee popped while Electronic Arts and Gamestop dropped.

POPS (stocks that jumped higher)

Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR) popped 7%. A buying frenzy was sparked by speculation that Nestle, the world's largest food company, was considering making a bid for the specialty coffee maker. - I would not be short, says Guy Adami.

DROPS (stocks that slid lower)

IAC/ Interactive Corp. (IACI) dropped 2%. Cowen downgraded the Internet company to ‘Neutral’ from ‘Outperform.’ - Just stay out of the way, says Tim Seymour.

Corinthian Colleges (COCO) dropped 7%. The company said Chief Operating Officer Matt Ouimet will resign at the end of this month to pursue other opportunities, and that it has no immediate plans to fill the position. - No good, says Karen Finerman.

Electronic Arts (ERTS) dropped 6%. The company’s flagship "Medal of Honor" game suffered weaker-than-expected reviews on its launch day. The first-person shooter game set in Afghanistan has stoked controversy over its depiction of Taliban-like characters killing U.S. soldiers. - It's a sell, says Brian Kelly.

Gamestop (GME) dropped 3%. A recent federal appeals court ruling could allow game publishers to prohibit this company from selling used titles; GameStop generates a big portion of its profits from used games. - That's a problem, says Patty Edwards. Stay away.
