Investing.com -- U.S. stocks fell on Wednesday after a disappointing earnings report from Target. Here are the midday movers for Aug. 17:

  • Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT ) shares fell 2.4% after the retailing giant said its quarterly earnings fell 90% as it slashed inventory prices to clear it out and get it ready for holiday sales. It kept its outlook for the year.
  • Bed Bath & Beyond Inc (NASDAQ: BBBY ) shares rose another 21% on Wednesday, continuing a streak of sizeable gains as retail investors engaged in the meme stock trade continued to bid it higher despite bearish analyst notes.
  • Manchester United Ltd (NYSE: MANU ) stock rose nearly 5% after Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA ) CEO and billionaire Elon Musk tweeted overnight that he was buying the U.K. football team and then said he was just joking. 
  • Sanofi (EPA: SASY ) ADR (NASDAQ: SNY ) shares sank 7% after the pharmaceutical company halted development of a breast cancer treatment because trials failed to demonstrate its effectiveness.
  • Teladoc Inc (NYSE: TDOC ) shares were down nearly 7% after Guggenheim analysts downgraded it to sell from neutral, citing its exposure to the consumer market.
