Check out the companies making headlines in midday trading Thursday.
Coinbase – The cryptocurrency exchange was up 9.6% after Oppenheimer said Coinbase was well-positioned while the larger sector was having its “Lehman Brothers moment.” The failed deal between Binance and FTX caused a “calamitous hurricane,” the firm said.
Rivian – The electric vehicle maker jumped 18% after the company reported a smaller-than-expected quarterly loss and said its production would remain on track despite supply chain snafus.
Six Flags – Shares of the theme park operator surged 13%. It missed top and bottom line expectations when reporting quarterly results, but announced an agreement with the investment firm H Partners that raised the cap on the firm’s stake to 19.9% from 14.9%.
Bumble – Shares of the company known for its dating platforms added 6.4% even after Bumble issued a weak current quarter revenue forecast and missed expectations.
Fair Isaac – The analytics company soared 27% after it posted better-than-expected earnings for its fiscal fourth quarter. Fair Isaac also issued guidance that beat a StreetAccount forecast.
