Why EverBank, Celgene, Centene, PACCAR, and Wolverine World Wide Are Trending Today

U.S. stocks are trading down on Tuesday, driven by a series of weak earnings reports and anticipation (or is it dread?) surrounding both the results of the FOMC’s meeting that started today and earnings from Apple Inc.

(NYSE:WWW), Centene Corp (NYSE:CNC), Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG), and PACCAR Inc (NASDAQ:PCAR). Let’s take a look into the events driving interest in these stocks today and see what the hedge funds in our database think about the companies in question.
