FedEx received its first five of an order of 500 electric Light Business Vehicles (eLCVs) from BrightDrop.
Take a look at the businesses making headlines in midday trading.
FedEx – Shares of the delivery giant slid about 21.4% after the corporate preannounced disappointing results for the recent quarter, citing weakness in global shipment volumes, and several other Wall Street analysts downgraded the stock. CEO Raj Subramaniam said he expects the economy to enter a “worldwide recession” on CNBC’s “Mad Money” Thursday. FedEx dragged its peers UPS and XPO Logistics down about 8.3% and 4.7%, respectively.
International Paper Co. – Shares dropped greater than 11% after Jefferies downgraded the stock from hold to underperforming because the paper services industry struggles with a glut of containerboard and sliding demand.
Uber – The ride-sharing service saw shares fall about 3.6% after it said it’s investigating a cybersecurity incident. A hacker had reportedly gained control of Uber’s internal systems after compromising an worker’s Slack account, in accordance with the Latest York Times.
General Electric – Shares of the economic conglomerate sank about 3.7% after its chief financial officer said Thursday the corporate is still coping with supply chain issues, which is affecting its ability to deliver products to its customers. That, in turn, is putting pressure on GE’s money flow.
NCR – The technology provider for banks, retailers and restaurants saw shares hit a latest 52-week low today after falling just above 20%. NCR’s board of directors announced the corporate would split into two independent publicly traded corporations.
Extra Space Storage – Shares fell about 1.3%. Earlier within the day, the company announced a $590 million deal to amass rival Storage Express.

Tesla – Shares for the electrical vehicle maker ticked down around .1% despite Morgan Stanley saying Friday that the corporate would likely profit from the Inflation Reduction Act.
Snowflake – Shares of the cloud computing company dropped greater than 6% as growth stocks led Friday’s sell-off. The decline got here whilst Needham initiated coverage of Snowflake with a buy rating, because the Wall Street firm sees potential latest uses for its platform.
CrowdStrike – Though MKM called the cybersecurity company a buy and said it’s in a “league of its own,” the stock was down greater than 4% because it got hit by the sell-off.
Netflix – Citi raised the worth goal for the stalwart streaming platform to $305 from $275 while calling it one of the best avenue for on-demand video services. Shares gained just over 2%.

Adobe – Adobe’s stock built on Thursday’s declines, sinking just over 3% after a slew of downgrades from Wall Street analysts. Bank of America downgraded the technology stock to neutral because it awaits further clarity on Adobe’s Figma acquisition.
Baidu – U.S-traded shares for the Chinese web search provider fell about 2.8% despite UBS rating it a buy with an “attractive” risk/reward ratio. This follows per week of declines for the corporate’s share value.
FirstEnergy — Shares jumped 1.9% following an announcement that FirstEnergy CEO Steve Strah is retiring, with board chair John W. Somerhalder II to switch him on an interim basis because the board conducts a CEO search.
