Check out the companies making headlines in midday trading.
Gap, Nordstrom — Shares of Gap and Nordstrom plummeted after the companies reported disappointing quarterly results late Tuesday citing rising labor costs, inventory issues, shopping costs and factory closures as challenges. Gap shares dropped 24%. Nordstrom tumbled 29%. Shares of other retailers were hurting Wednesday too. Tapestry fell 4%, Ralph Lauren lost 2% and PVH slid more than 1%.
Autodesk — The software company’s shares fell more than 15% despite reporting a beat on the top and bottom lines for its most recent quarter. Autodesk issued fourth quarter earnings and revenue guidance that were largely below estimates.
HP Inc. — HP shares surged more than 10% after a better-than-expected earnings report. The company posted an adjusted quarterly profit of 94 cents per share, 6 cents above the Refinitv consensus estimate. The computer maker also issued a strong outlook amid solid consumer and business demand for personal computers and printers.
Deere & Co — Shares of the farm equipment maker jumped about 5% after the company issued stronger-than-expected quarterly earnings. Deere posted earnings of $4.12 per share last quarter, surpassing the consensus estimate of $3.90, according to Refinitiv. Deere said solid demand for its products helped cushion the impact of a month-long workers strike. Its revenue came in slightly below analyst forecasts, however.
Dell Technologies — Dell shares rose 4.8% after reporting adjusted quarterly earnings of $2.37 per share, beating the $2.18 consensus estimate amid growing demand for its computers and servers, and issued a stronger than expected current-quarter forecast.
VMware — The cloud computing company’s shares got an almost 2% boost after the company reported a quarterly beat on the top and bottom lines and gave an upbeat current-quarter forecast as global demand for cloud computing services rises.
Pure Storage — Shares of tech and data storage company gained 13% after the company beat earnings estimates for the third quarter and issued a better-than-expected current-quarter revenue outlook.
Chevron — Shares of the energy giant advanced nearly 1% after RBC upgraded the company to an outperform rating. The firm said Chevron can benefit from “a strong commodity cycle over the coming years,” adding that the company has “much more stability in its portfolio than peers.” RBC believes shares can jump nearly 25% from Tuesday’s closing price. Other names in the industry also advanced on Wednesday, with Devon Energy and Diamondback Energy adding more than 3% and Baker Hughes rising 1.5%.
