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

Hasbro (HAS) - The toy maker is up more than a percent today on solid earnings. The company says toys like My Little Pony helped them with the earnings beat. Hasbro's competitor Mattel missed last week blaming softness in Barbie sales. Chalk it up as a win for the body image and self-esteem of young girls and chunky horses across America.

Walter Energy (WLT) - The coal producer's stock is down close to (FS 5) 10% after Goldman Sachs downgraded the company to sell from neutral. Goldman says lower coal prices will lead Walter to (OC) "burn 39% of it's market cap this year". Goldman says the company may be forced to raise money at some point this year.

Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT) - The drug maker surging higher  by as much as 50% earlier today on news that it would soon submit a new application to the FDA for a drug that treats a fatal form of muscular dystrophy that impacts as many as 1 in every 3,500 children. Sarepta has no other products on the market and has been at odds with the government who last year asked for a more in-depth study of the drug before considering a stamp of approval.
