U.S. stocks are up as traders continue to cheer last week's upbeat jobs report. Among equities in focus today are biotech Horizon Pharma PLC (NASDAQ:HZNP), airline stock Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE:DAL), and mattress retailer Mattress Firm Holding Corp (NASDAQ:MFRM)

  • DAL was down more than 4% in pre-market trading, after a global computer system outage forced the airline to temporarily delay or cancel flights, leaving thousands of customers stranded. However, DAL has since clawed 0.3% higher to sit at $37.79, after the ground stop was lifted. Delta Air Lines, Inc. has had a rough year so far, down 25.7% since the beginning of 2016, touching an annual low of $32.60 in late June. Currently, nine out of 10 analysts rate DAL a "buy" or better, leaving the door wide open for a slew of downgrades to pressure the stock lower.
