It's time for your daily dose of Trending Tickers! Here are the stocks you're tracking as measured by Yahoo finance ticker searches:

Twitter (TWTR) is up more than 4% after hiring former Goldman analyst and NFL exec Anthony Noto as CFO. Twitter shares have gained 9% in the last month. At Goldman Noto helped lead Twitter's IPO. This is just the latest in a series of management shake-ups at Twitter in the last few weeks as the company gropes for a sustainable business model and growth plan.

Tuesday was another monster rally for GoPro (GPRO) -- the stock is up a whopping 16% today. GoPro's stock has surged 97% from where it was priced ahead of its IPO last week. The camera gadget company is now worth a whopping $6 billion, about 6x more than the company's 2013 revenues. Does this market a bubble? Not by itself but watch to see if a flood of cheap camera companies are able to get to the public markets over the next few months.

Last but not least, shares of BNP Paribas (BNP.PA) are up nearly 4% in early afternoon trading, one day after France's largest bank agreed to plead guilty to two felony counts and pay $9 billion for violating U.S. economic sanctions. Upper management assured investors that the bank would continue to offer the same dividend as last year.
