Stocks stage relief rally led by energy sector

Stocks rebound in a big way led by a beaten down energy sector. Is this the start of good things to come? While that question remains to be answered, it was good day for some individual stocks. JPMorgan topped earnings and revenue estimates for the quarter. Dick Bove of Rafferty Capital broke down the big bank's performance.

Winners & losers

Stocks getting swept to the downside were GoPro, Best Buy, and WebMD—the health advice site reversing lower after it refuted an FT report claiming WebMD was exploring a sale.

Stocks pulling higher today include Exxon, Microsoft, and LendingTree—the online loan marketplace popping after its board of directors authorized a $50 million buyback of the company's stock under its existing stock repurchase program. The announcement comes on the heels of yesterday's big selloff.
