In midday trading, several companies made headlines for various reasons. Dell Technologies saw its stock plunge 18% after executives warned of potential pressure on gross margins in 2025. Lionsgate Studios, on the other hand, saw a 3% increase in shares after Citi initiated coverage of the film studio with a buy rating. Zscaler shares rose 9% following a fiscal third-quarter earnings and revenue beat, with adjusted earnings of 88 cents per share and revenue of $553 million exceeding analyst expectations.

Nordstrom’s stock jumped 5% after the department store operator reported solid quarterly sales growth and maintained its full-year forecast. Nordstrom Rack, its off-price chain, outperformed the flagship brand with a 7.9% increase in comparable sales. Gap soared 29% after posting fiscal first-quarter earnings per share of 41 cents, higher than the 14 cents expected by analysts. Ambarella also saw a 21% increase in shares after announcing expected revenue growth in fiscal 2025 due to strong artificial intelligence demand.

VF Corporation surged 8% after announcing Sun Choe as the new global brand president of Vans, while Cooper Companies added 5% following a fiscal second-quarter adjusted earnings beat despite revenue falling below expectations.

Paycom Software’s stock fell 9% after announcing an executive shake-up, while First Solar saw shares slip 2% after a downgrade by Mizuho to neutral from buy.
