U.S. stocks are following their global peers into the black, as traders cheer a rebound in China and hopes for a Greek debt deal. Among the sectors and stocks making notable moves on the charts:

National Bank of Greece (ADR) (NYSE:NBG) -- along with this trio of Greek shipping stocks -- is higher amid optimism that Greece will stay in the eurozone. At last check, NBG has added 14.3% to sit at $1.24.

Meanwhile, financials are among the industry winners today, with traders digesting the latest rate-hike predictions from Fed Chair Janet Yellen.

Cablevision Systems Corporation (NYSE:CVC) is 7.2% higher at $26.65, and just hit a four-year high of $27.09, amid reports that French billionaire Patrick Drahi could pursue the company.

Aluminum Corp. of China Limited (ADR) (NYSE:ACH) and VisionChina Media Inc (ADR) (NASDAQ:VISN) are among the China-based stocks enjoying tailwinds. ACH is 7.8% higher at $10.32, while VISN has soared 15.6% to flirt with $11.55.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is up 2.9% at $123.50, attempting to end higher for the first session in six. However, the equity is still staring up at its 10- and 20-day trendlines, which have ushered the stock lower since late May. 

Airline stocks are higher, as oil futures fall after a downwardly revised forecast from the International Energy Agency (IEA). In addition, American Airlines Group Inc (NASDAQ:AAL) has spiked 4.2% to $41.35 on plans to slow its expansion ambitions.

Barracuda Networks Inc (NYSE:CUDA) has plummeted 19.3% to $31.58 on an earnings-induced round of negative analyst attention.

Gold is struggling in the wake of Yellen's midday speech. At last check, the SPDR Gold Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:GLD) was down a fraction of a point at $111.33, while the Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bull 3X Shares (NYSEARCA:NUGT) is fresh off a record low of $6.58, and was last seen 5% south of breakeven at $6.62.

Helen of Troy Limited (NASDAQ:HELE) has sunk 9.1% to flirt with $88.24, due to an earnings miss.
