Stocks Heading Up In Early Trading: KUTV, CNVO, STP, YGE, DNN, USU

The stock market is well into positive territory this morning as news out of China pushed stocks to open higher this morning. China’s economy grew a little bit more than expected at 8.9%. Many analysts were expecting closer to 8.7%. However, China’s economy grew at the slowest pace in more than two years. Banking stocks are mixed this morning with Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE:WFC) up about 2% after its quarterly results beat expectations. Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) on the other hand is down 5.43% after reporting an 11% profit drop in the most recent quarter.

It appears investors have largely ignored the recent slew of downgrades in Europe as the China GDP news took center stage today. As of 10:22 am EST the Dow is up 114 points, the Nasdaq is up 24 points and the S&P is up 10 points.
