Investing.com -- Stocks were falling on Thursday on fresh fears of a recession as the U.S. reached its federal borrowing limit. Here are the midday movers for Jan. 19.
- Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG ) stock fell 1.6% after the consumer product giant reported a drop in revenue and profit from a year earlier, though in line with expectations. It sees higher sales growth this year than previously forecast as it continues to raise prices.
- Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS ) stock fell 0.8% after the credit card company raised its provision for loan losses and projected higher net charge-offs, an indication consumers will eventually have trouble keeping up with their payments.
Allstate Corp (NYSE: ALL ) stock fell 7% after the property and casualty insurer released preliminary results that foresee an adjusted net loss of $335 million to $385M because of claims related to severe winter weather.
- Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NYSE: NCLH ) shares fell 5.7% after it said it would record a loss for the most recent quarter and for 2022, and it foresees revenue of approximately $4.7 billion to $5.0B for the year ended Dec. 31, 2022.
Northern Trust Corporation (NASDAQ: NTRS ) shares fell 7% after it reported weaker-than-expected results , including earnings per share of 71 cents, which was below consensus estimates of $1.81 a share.
