"Pls work w/us to make things right"

Oil rig services giant Transocean Ltd  (NYSE:RIG) shares surged 4.72% to US$9.76 as it  was upgraded to "buy" from "neutral" at Swiss bank UBS, which expects the oilfield services company's business to improve in the medium term. In the regular session, shares gained over 7% to US$10.01 each. 

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) shares shed 0.73%  after the social media giant dropped plans to issue a new class of shares that would allow founder Mark Zuckerberg to keep voting control and fund Facebook's philanthropy efforts. Later Facebook shares dipped even further - losing 3.44% to US$164.67.
