Midday stock check: SunPower shines 

The largest share price increase in mid-afternoon trading Eastern Standard Time was enjoyedby SunPower Corp. (SPWR), the San Jose solar-electric products manufacturer, which saw its share price rise 7.50 percent. The stock was upgraded by an analyst earlier this week, according to Schaeffers Research.

San Mateo mutual fund company Franklin Resources Inc. (BEN) dropped more than 8 points, or 6.41 percent, following an earnings report that showed a rise in quarterly profit that didn’t meet Wall Street expectations, according to Reuters.
