Tiffany shines, Express in the fast lane, Facebook gets un-liked

It's time for your daily dose of Trending Tickers, the stocks that you're tracking as measured by Yahoo Finance ticker searches. Making the list today are:

Tiffany (TIF) - Shares are higher after the world's number one seller of blue boxes and full-priced gems beat earnings expectations and guided higher for the year. The stock is giving back some gains but is still higher after the chain posted 16% earnings growth and strong revenues. Rule of thumb: no one pays retail for diamonds unless they're confident about the economy.

Express (EXPR) - The men's and women's endless promotion specialty retailer is up 10% after beating earnings estimates. Results for the embattled chain were driven by cost cutting and outlet expansion. Why does a chain that constantly runs "buy one get one free" promotions on $40 pants need outlet stores you ask? Because outlet malls are where the customers are.

Facebook (FB) - Shares are under pressure after getting cut from "buy" to "hold" by Janey. The firm says valuation headwinds and decelerating growth will keep a lid on Facebook shares as the company matures. Facebook is up 91% over the last year and nearly 20% in last three months. The bullish rebuttal to Janey more or less amounts to desperate fund managers and greater fools. I'm long the stock so that's good enough for me.
