Today's Trending Tickers as measured by your Yahoo Finance searches are:
General Mils (GIS) - The cereal giant posted mixed earnings and blames, guess what, the weather! Rising input prices can’t be helping either.
KB Home (KBH) One of the nation’s largest home-builders is up nearly 8% after reporting an 11% growth in revenue over the last three months. It’s been a bouncy ride for KBH which like many of the home-builders is still shaking off the after effects of the housing collapse. Shares have more than doubled in the last 18-months but KBH still remains 75% off all time highs.
FeEx (FDX) - The shipper is getting some clicks after reporting lackluster earnings of their own but the stock is still marginally higher today. Investors are viewing the glass as half full and overlooking weakness in the here and now in anticipation of a spring thaw at some point in America’s future.
Toyota (TM) - The auto giant is getting some interest after announcing it will settle with the Justice Department to the tune of $1.2 billion dollars, closing the book on a criminal investigation into those 2009 recalls. Investors are happy to have those problems in the rear view but it remains to be seen if buyers will be so forgiving.
And your top trending ticker today is Oracle (ORCL)
The software giant is down almost 3% today after reporting EPS and revenue that missed estimates in it’s Q3 earnings.
The dark cloud’s silver lining is...the cloud. Oracle booked a 25% revenue growth there for the quarter and it has prompted analysts to hold tight despite the stock’s dip.
Oracle is reliably unreliable when it comes to earnings reports and shares have lagged the market over the last year. About the only thing investors can count is that Oracle’s board will overlook the volatility when it comes to CEO Larry Ellison. The world’s fifth richest man has been paid more than $150 million over the last two years and owns more than 25% of the company.
