Stocks rebound today after a choppy start to the week. With energy stocks rebounding, are traders betting a commodities bounce-back is in the cards?

Winners & Losers

Let's take a look at some of today's big winners and losers. Stocks missing the mark today were First Solar, Yum Brands, and Men's Wearhouse—investors were not liking the look of this stock in their portfolios
after the retailer said it will take a $90 million write-down for its Joseph A. Bank Clothiers unit, which saw sales fall 35%.

Some of the winners today include Atlassian, Delta Airlines, and GoPro—the beaten down action-camera maker surging today after announcing it will release a new drone, dubbed the "Karma," which has an HD camera. Traders short the stock are left wondering if this was just a case of bad ... karma.

Golden Globes Nominations

Film studio 20th Century Fox leads the pack when it comes to movie studios, with 12 nods—including one for the Revenant in the best dramatic picture category and another for The Martian in the best comedy or musical category. That film recently crossed the $500 million box office threshold globally.

On the TV side, Netflix lead with 9 nominations. Competitor Amazon took in 5 nominations, with Transparent drawing critical acclaim.
