Salesforce — Shares of the cloud-based software company slid more than 8.3% after the firm announced the sudden departure of co-CEO Bret Taylor. The Dow component dragged down the 30-stock average during Thursday’s sell-off. Salesforce did report earnings and revenue that beat analyst expectations for the most recent quarter, however.
Costco – Shares of retailer Costco shed nearly 6.6% after the company reported softer-than-expected sales figures for November that could signal a weak consumer heading into the holiday shopping season. The company announced that sales in November rose 5.7% to $19.17 billion on the year, less than the growth seen in October and September.
Snowflake — Shares of Snowflake gained more than 7.8% after analysts from Morgan Stanley and MoffettNathanson reiterated their bullish stance on the stock’s long-term prospects. The cloud data platform provider reported earnings that beat expectations but provided light revenue guidance, which sent the stock lower after-hours Wednesday.
Okta — The identity management software provider’s stock surged more than 26% after the company shared a better-than-expected outlook and topped Wall Street’s estimates for the recent period. Analysts had anticipated a loss of 24 cents for the quarter.

Fourth-quarter guidance also topped expectations. CEO Joel Anderson said in a statement that ticket and transaction metrics improved during the third quarter.

The lingerie company reported earnings of 29 cents per share on revenue of $1.32 billion. Analysts polled by Refinitiv were expecting earnings of 23 cents per share on revenue of $1.33 billion. JPMorgan downgraded the stock to neutral from overweight after the results, citing trouble in the company’s core business.
