Stock Downgrades: Railing Against Canadian Pacific


That much-discussed " Hindenburg Omen " looks like hot air, especially as today is an iconic anniversary in the history of such balloons . Shares started June, historically the start of many a market swoon, with their best day in weeks. Those bubble references ominously proliferating on Twitter were no sweat for Bubble Wrap owner Sealed Air ( SEE ), which rose 2.08% as investors found the shares as irresistible as its best known product .

One stock that missed out on all the fun was Brazil's GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes ( GOL ), which fell 4.71% on a decidedly lukewarm analyst initiation . Still, surely far better to own GOL than own goal .

Today's quarterly earnings announcements are due to include American Woodmark ( AMWD ) and Dollar General ( DG ).
