U.S. stocks are higher, as traders look digest the latest round of earnings. Among specific equities in focus are retailer Michael Kors Holdings Ltd (NYSE:KORS), automaker General Motors Company (NYSE:GM), and biotech stock Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd (ADR) (NYSE:TEVA). Here's a quick look at what's driving KORS, GM, and TEVA shares.

Michael Kors Plummets After Earnings

KORS is down 14% at $35.52 -- and just off a new annual low of $35.12 -- after the company delivered an earnings miss. In addition to disappointing quarterly results, KORS also lowered its current-quarter forecast, anticipating lower wholesale shipments and weakness in North America and Europe. Today's drop has the shares down more than 29% year-over-year, but wasn't totally unexpected for options traders, with Michael Kors Holdings Ltd's 10-day put/call volume ratio at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) of 1.91 sitting just 6 percentage points from an annual peak.

General Motors Slips On Mixed Earnings

GM is down 3.5% at $35.55, after the automaker delivered a mixed earnings report. GM still sits up more than 23% year-over-year, however, and the shares have found support in the $35-$36 region since early December. Analysts are still on the fence about General Motors Company, however, with nine of 15 rating the shares a lukewarm "hold" or worse. A round of upgrades could help GM resume its quest for annual highs, should analysts applaud the company's record per-share earnings.

Teva Pharmaceutical Drops As CEO Splits

TEVA is down 3% at $33.30, on news that CEO Erez Vigodman is stepping down from his post. Chairman Yitzhak Peterburg will serve as interim CEO as TEVA leadership searches for a permanent replacement with extensive pharmaceutical-industry experience. TEVA shares have dropped more than 41% year-over-year, and are now within a chip-shot of new 10-year lows. Near-term option players have been unusually put-skewed toward Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd (ADR), with the biotech's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 1.04 sitting just 4 percentage points from an annual peak.
