Furthermore, the company announced that it would close 400 of its least profitable stores. Shares of Office Depot jumped over $0.60 today but are still around a dollar off of their 52-week high.

Twitter Inc. (TWTR)

Twitter Inc. is getting crushed today, down 17.81% to $31.85. The social media company watched its shares plummet due to the lock-up on insider sales expiring. Today 480 million shares became eligible for sale which is nearly three times the number of shares from the IPO. Although, most insiders said they would not sell their shares, investors are wary that those 480 million shares hitting the market could drive prices down. Shares of Twitter hit a new 52-week low of $31.72 intraday.
