Avon (AVP +1.4%) shares swing higher after opening negative following a weak Q4 report. Investors apparently were reassured after outgoing CEO Andrea Jung pledged to let her successor take steps to cut costs without impediment and that the dividend is safe this year. AVP swung to a Q4 loss on a goodwill charge and softer revenue, but expectations already were low.
