Quarter-to-date, SNOW is down 16.4%.

Build-a-Bear Workshop Inc (NYSE:BBW) soared to 18-year highs today, up 14.6% at $146.79 at last glance, after the company's better-than-expected second-quarter results. Gapping past a line of pressure at the $26 region, which kept a lid on gains earlier this month and in April, BBW is up 24.4% year-to-date. 

BBW Intraday

Petco Health and Wellness Company (NASDAQ:WOOF) is dropping to record lows, as slow demand cuts into second-quarter results. At last check, the security was down 21.5% at $5.10, and earlier broke into penny stock territory for the first time after hitting $4.99. Year-to-date, WOOF is down 45.7%.
