Investing.com -- Main U.S. indexes edged higher Wednesday, a day after hot inflation data triggered a major selloff.

Here are some of the biggest U.S. stock movers today:

Lyft (NASDAQ: LYFT ) shares were higher by 32% despite losing a large portion of earlier gains due to a significant error in its margin outlook. Its fourth quarter results and guidance were still viewed as strong.

Shares in Airbnb (ABNB) fell 3% after the travel accommodation app flagged that it would see a moderation in booking rates in its current quarter.

Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ: KHC ) declined 6% after posting fourth-quarter net sales that missed expectations, as the packaged food group faced headwinds from recent price hikes that have dented demand.

Robinhood (NASDAQ: HOOD ) shares jumped 10% after the digital brokerage posted better-than-anticipated fourth-quarter net revenue of $471 million.

Zillow (NASDAQ: ZG ) shares popped 9% following fourth-quarter results from the online real estate group that topped estimates.

Super Micro Computer (NASDAQ: SMCI ) climbed 10%, adding to recent gains. Optimism over its AI servers has driven the stock higher by 170% in the past 30 days.

Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER ) climbed 12% after its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $7 billion of the company’s common stock, its first ever buyback program. Strong results from rival Lyft also helped fuel gains.

Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN ) and digital miners Marathon Digital (NASDAQ: MARA ) and Riot Platforms (NASDAQ: RIOT ) jumped after the price of Bitcoin surpassed $51,000.

IQVIA Holdings (NYSE: IQV ) rose 10% after the clinical research services firm published better than expected fourth quarter results and guidance.

Williams Cos. (WMB) declined 3.6% after adjusted Ebitda guidance trailed estimates.

Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ: AKAM ) declined 7% after reporting mixed performance in the final quarter of 2023. Analysts also considered its overall guidance for the year as "mixed."

MGM Resorts (NYSE: MGM ) declined 7.5% despite reporting EPS and revenue that beat consensus in the fourth quarter. Its regional business was a drag on performance.
