Check out the companies making headlines in midday trading.
Energy — Energy stocks dominated the top performing spots in the S&P 500 as U.S. crude oil prices topped $80 a barrel, the highest since 2014. APA Corp gained 4.9%. Pioneer and Diamondback added more than 3%. Hess rose about 4%. EOG leapt more than 3%. Marathon Oil gained over 2% and Devon Energy added 1.8%.
Charter Communications — The cable company’s stock fell more than 4% after Wells Fargo downgraded it to underweight from equal weight, due to concerns about slowing cable subscriber growth. Cable One also lost about 3% after Wells downgraded it to equal weight from overweight. Competitors Altice fell 1.8% and Comcast Corp fell 3.7%. Comcast owns NBCUniversal, the parent company of CNBC.
General Motors — Shares of the automaker jumped 3.5% after Credit Suisse reiterated its outperform rating on the stock, saying it has a “compelling case” for multiple expansion after the company’s investor day earlier this week. Shares of Ford also were also higher, by 1.8%.
Oatly — Shares of the oatmilk maker gained less than 1% after JPMorgan upgraded the stock to overweight from neutral. The Wall Street firm said it sees a “favorable risk/reward” for the shares after pulling back nearly 50% from its June peak.
Sirius XM Holdings — The satellite radio company saw shares fall 2.7% after JPMorgan downgraded the stock to neutral from overweight, saying it expects the slowdown in new auto sales to affect new subscriptions. It lowered its December 2022 price target to $7 from $8.
Moderna — The biotechnology and pharmaceutical stock fell more than 1% after Finland, Denmark and Sweden announced they would limit the use of the Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine in young people. The countries made the decision citing concerns around rare cardiovascular side effects.
Citrix Systems — The enterprise software stock continued its descent after Citi downgraded it to neutral from buy, citing the departure of the company’s CEO, announced earlier in the week. It’s unlikely a financial bidder will buy the company and that it will struggle to deliver on its long term targets, analyst Tyler Radke said. Citrix slid 5.7%.
