( TIVO ) gained 2.59% to continue its post-earnings bounce.

Elsewhere those rotten tomatoes currently spoiling on the streets of Spain were flung at a shunned Fresh Market ( TFM ), which imploded 11.55%. And a new study said poverty saps brain power . But you don't need to be an Einstein ( BAGL ) - down 3.17% - to know that.
