Winners and losers
Stocks in the red include Wynn Resorts as the casino operator’s revenue was slightly below Street estimates; Trivago as the travel site reported a Q1 loss and lowered its current quarter forecast; and Goodyear Tire & Rubber, with shares dipping as profit was off more than 50% as demand for tires was weaker than expected, and raw material cots weighed on results.
Stocks in the green include Texas Instruments, as the chipmaker beat on earning, citing strength in its automotive and industrial units; Six Flags Entertainment after the theme park operator reported revenue increased 30% to a record $129 million; and Boeing, with shares higher as the plane maker and defense contractor beat on the top and bottom lines and boosted its full-year profit forecast.
