Mattel's (NASDAQ: MAT ) third-quarter profits jumped up a surprising 16%, because of strong sales of its Barbie, Monster High, and American Girl dolls. CSX (NASDAQ: CSX ) grew third-quarter profits slightly, up 1.3%, with full-year results also projected to be "slightly up" from last year. And Abbott Labs (NYSE: ABT ) saw light third-quarter sales, though it had strong profits, and raised its dividend. In this segment, Dave and Taylor look at four stocks making moves today.
