Tiffany & Co. Sparkles: 6 Stocks in 60 Seconds

Credit Suisse analysts downgraded FirstEnergy (FE[1]) on Tuesday, sending the stock sinking over 7% by midday. The Utilities SPDR (XLU[2]) also was in the red amid other utility declines — namely, Exelon (EXC[3]), also on an analyst downgrade — and the generally defensive sector’s ETF[4] has now shed nearly 7% in the past month alone.

Microsoft (MSFT[5]) just unveiled its new all-in-one entertainment and video game console, the Xbox One. The tech company’s usually sleepy stock is beating the broader market with a 27% YTD climb. More on the console:

Luxury retailer Tiffany & Co. (TIF[9]) reported better-than-expected first-quarter earnings yesterday, giving the stock a 4% boost. Two reasons for the solid results: Tiffany’s 175th anniversary and the film The Great Gatsby, for which the company designed jewelry.

General Electric (GE[10]), InvestorPlace‘s Stock of the Week[11], is investing billions of dollars in the the oil-and-gas space, including a large chunk in the fracking boom. Its plans include “opening a new laboratory in Oklahoma, buying up related companies, and placing a big bet that cutting-edge science will improve profits for clients and reduce the environmental and health effects of the boom,” according to The Associated Press[12].

Tripadvisor (TRIP[13]) has climbed more than 50% this year — more than double the broader market — but Johnson Research Group thinks the stock is ripe for a correction[14].

Finally, a fire broke out aboard[15] a Royal Caribbean (RCL[16]) ship this week, though no one aboard was injured. Earlier this year, a similar incident left a Carnival (CCL[17]) cruise ship stranded at sea as well. CCL has lost double-digits so far this year[18], partly thanks to the mishap.
