But boat-building stocks were sinking fast.

Sun is expected to rise during morning trading.

EverReady stock was weak, but Duracell stock charged ahead.

Stock in several NFL franchises fumbled - many shareholders opted to punt.

Bell Helicopter hovered around its highs.

Real-estate investment trusts lost ground.

Pest-control companies got killed.
