U.S. stocks are holding on to tenuous gains ahead of Fed Chair Janet Yellen's speech. Among equities in focus are discount retailer Big Lots, Inc. (NYSE:BIG), solar energy stock JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE:JKS), and online lender LendingClub Corp (NYSE:LC).

  • JKS is down 4% at $22.45 after earnings, despite the company waxing optimistic on the industry. "Global solar demand continues to grow as costs go down," said JKS CEO Kangping Chen, adding that a "number of big orders" continue to roll in from China -- "a trend we believe will continue into the second quarter." JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd., is down more than 18% in 2016, and has struggled to overcome resistance from its 320-day moving average. Options traders have been especially bullish on the stock, though, with JKS' 50-day call/put volume ratio at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) sitting in the 99th percentile of its annual range, at 3.2.
