Today's Trending Tickers based on your Yahoo Finance searches are:

American aircraft manufacturer Boeing (BA) is lifting higher on it's earnings. The stock was up about 2% during it's 10:30 earnings call this morning where management discussed their 14% higher adjusted profit which beat estimates, and their positive outlook for 2014 due to rising jet production.

Household product makers Procter & Gamble (PG) are also generating interest after reporting earnings this morning. Unlike Boeing, this company didn't fair so well...Shares were falling into the red after P&G reported flat net sales in its third-quarter earnings, though the company beat estimates on the bottom line by 3 cents. P&G reported earnings per share of $1.01.  

Activist investor Bill Ackman's latest favorite company Allergan (AGN) is also trending today. Shares of the Botox-maker are moving slightly higher this morning and have been attracting attention since Ackman teamed up with Valeant Pharmaceuticals to make a $46 billion bid at the company. The company is also raising eyebrows after reports showing the volume of trading in Allergan in the days ahead of Ackman's announcement was much higher than average. Bill Ackman was on the defensive this morning telling CNBC the 9.7 percent stake he bought in Allergan was not front-running or insider trading.
