A 4% move in a stock, up or down, is NOTHING

Yahoo Finance gives me a list of percentage change from open every day for 100 stocks.

In a typical day, most stocks change by 1% or less.

Only abt 3% of stocks change by 4% or more in a typical day.

I use the list to look for significant news for stocks of interest.
