minute read

Check out the companies making the biggest premarket move:

Nordstrom:The retail establishment, Nordstrom, witnessed a decline of 7.73% in its stock value, notwithstanding surpassing expectations for fiscal second-quarter earnings and revenue. Earnings exceeded projections by 40 cents, as compared to the 44 cents forecasted by Refinitiv-analyzed experts. While sales remained below pre-pandemic levels, Nordstrom affirmed its earlier outlook for the full fiscal year, anticipating a single-digit reduction in revenues. Notably, the company expressed concern over the historically elevated incidents of theft-related losses.

Affirm:Shares of the "buy now, pay later" entity, Affirm, soared by 28.82%, consequent to its fiscal fourth-quarter outcomes surpassing predictions due to amplified gross merchandise volume. Furthermore, Affirm offered a robust projection for the ensuing fiscal quarter, envisioning revenue within the range of $430 million to $455 million. This projection outperforms the $430 million consensus forecast from analysts.

Hawaiian Electric:The utility enterprise, Hawaiian Electric, encountered a significant downturn of 18.55% subsequent to news of a lawsuit by Maui County. The lawsuit cites damages linked to wildfires on the island, resulting in the loss of over 100 lives. The legal action alleges that Hawaiian Electric maintained its power lines energized despite a warning from the National Weather Service regarding the heightened risk of fires due to high winds and drought conditions. The company expressed disappointment at the county's litigious approach and indicated that the investigation is ongoing.

Hasbro:A rise of 5.66% was noted in the stock price of toy manufacturer Hasbro, following an upward adjustment of its price target by Stifel, from $79 to $94. This adjustment implies a potential upside of approximately 43% based on the prior closing price. Stifel also included Hasbro in its list of preferred stocks, citing strategic changes and prospects within the company. Additionally, Bank of America raised its price target to $90 from $85 earlier in the week. The stock has registered an increase of nearly 9% within the week.

The reported revenue was $1.79 billion, exceeding the projected $1.77 billion.

Intuit:Shares of Intuit, the software enterprise, appreciated by 4.12% and achieved a 52-week high in the wake of the company's earnings surpassing estimates.

AMC Entertainment:A decline of 13.5% in shares of AMC Entertainment followed the company's decision to convert its preferred equity units into common stock.
