Bank stocks are once again pressuring the Dow lower today. Among the stocks making big moves after earnings are retailer J.Jill Inc (NYSE:JILL), drugmaker Perrigo Company plc Ordinary Shares (NYSE:PRGO), and accessories designer Vera Bradley, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRA). Here's a quick look at what's moving shares of JILL, PRGO, and VRA.

JILL Stock Set for Best Day Since IPO

Shares of J.Jill are up 12.5% today to trade at $12.68 -- aiming for their best day since going public back in March, and leading the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) -- thanks to the company's strong quarterly earnings and upbeat guidance. The shares are trading just pennies below where they opened for trading back on March 9 ($12.75), and are on pace for their highest close since May 11. Meanwhile, analysts are very bullish on JILL stock, with six of seven saying to buy the shares. 

PRGO Stock Leads SPX

Perrigo last night delivered better-than-expected first-quarter earnings, and the stock is now up 5% at $71.34, making it the top percentage gainer on the S&P 500 Index (SPX). This jump is little solace for long-term shareholders, who've watched the stock plummet from its perch above $200 from back in mid-2015. It looks like options traders were ready for the breakout, though. PRGO stock has a 10-day call/put volume ratio of 4.40 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), which ranks in the 74th annual percentile. 

VRA Stock Pops After Earnings Top Forecasts

Vera Bradley is also a long-term underperformer making a big upside move today, with the shares last seen 9.4% higher at $9.31. This comes after the company posted a smaller-than-expected loss for the first quarter. While VRA shares are poised to finish atop their 80-day moving average for the first time since November, they're still well below their 52-week breakeven point of $15.62. Short sellers are hoping today's gains are just a blip on the radar, since these bears control a whopping 28% of the stock's float.
