On the upside

Last week, Vanda Pharmaceucticals (Nasdaq: VNDA) reported a smaller than expected loss for the first quarter prompting Caris & Co. analyst David Moskowitz to initiate coverage of the company with a Buy rating.

Analysts upgraded Walter Industries (NYSE: WLT) and lifted their price targets for the company citing higher coal prices.

First quarter earnings for Alpha Natural Resources (NYSE: ANR) more than tripled as coal prices climbed and exports increased.

On the downside

Although first quarter earnings for HMS Holdings (Nasdaq: HMSY) rose, the results fell short of estimates.

Hewitt Associates (NYSE: HEW) blamed a drop in revenue from its consulting unit for second quarter earnings that missed expectations.

Higher expenses and lower than expected use of vessels weighed down fourth quarter earnings for Tidewater (NYSE: TDW) to fall short of expectations.
