Wall Street ratings agencies set the tone for today's stock market.

MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL In after-hours action H&R Block (HRB) reported revenue from tax services tumbled about 2%. Probably due to Charlie Rangel, who set tax policy as Ways and Means Committee Chairman yet curiously failed to file. (Chuck's good luck is in; last night the 21-term congressman emerged triumphant in another electoral primary.)

Dreamworks Animation (DWA): DWA is upgraded to Hold from Sell at Stifel Nicolaus, which cites better than expected performance from Madagascar 3.

E.ON AG (EONGY): A second upgrade in as many days for the German utility giant, now Overweight from Neutral at HSBC Securities. Shares are higher as a result.
