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:

UPS (UPS) - Shares are more or less flat today despite the news that a security breach impacting 51 of their stores across the nation may have compromised customer credit and debit data. The fact that the stock hasn't moved much on the news is proof that UPS stores - all 4,470 of them in the U.S. - simply aren't a big part of the delivery giant's overall business.



EBay (EBAY) - Shares of the online auction site are popping by more than 5% on rumors that the long talked about spin-off of Paypal may soon become a reality. Reports suggest Ebay has been telling prospective PayPal CEO's that the change could happen as early as next year.




Sears (SHLD) - Shares of the embattled retailer are down more than 7-percent after reporting a first half loss of nearly $1 billion. CEO Eddie Lampert doubled down on his commitment to change the retailer into a store focused on deals personalized for its core customers. So far the plan doesn't seem to be working - even after closing 95 of the 130 stores they planned to shutter this year.
