Diamonds and Dogs


The "force" is with Hasbro (HAS). The toymaker is up 4% to a seven month high following an upgrade at BMO Capital. The analyst raised his price target to $90 a share from $69 a share as he sees strong sales for "boredom busters" like board games, outdoor toys, and activities continuing into the holiday season and year-end. 

Bad to worse for the energy sector. The Energy sector was down 2.7% today and down nearly 50% for the year as oil demand and pricing remain weak. Apache Energy (APA) is down 7% today and down 60% for the year.
