Investing.com -- Stocks tumbled on Friday after a stronger-than-expected jobs report for September threw a wet blanket on hopes for a pivot on interest rates by the Federal Reserve. Here are the market movers for Oct. 7:
Advanced Micro Devices Inc (NASDAQ: AMD ) shares fell 11% after the chip maker said third-quarter revenue would come in $1 billion below its previous projection because of a slump in PC sales.
CVS Health Corp (NYSE: CVS ) shares fell 11% after the government lowered the performance ratings on its largest Medicare insurance plan and after a report it was exploring the purchase of Cano Health Inc (NYSE: CANO ). Shares of Cano, a primary care company, rose 5%.
Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL ) stock rose 3% as oil prices spiked on Friday. The oil field services company and producers are benefitting from rising crude prices after the cartel of major oil-producing nations agreed to cut production two million barrels a day.
Tilray Inc (NASDAQ: TLRY ) shares fell 18% after disappointing revenue and profit. This comes a day after the shares spiked when President Joe Biden asked government agencies to review the classification of marijuana as a drug.
Levi Strauss & Co (NYSE: LEVI ) shares fell 10% after the denim apparel maker cut its forecasts for 2022.
