Stock Market Update for November 1, 2023

Here is a summary of the trending companies and their recent developments:

  1. Thomson Reuters Corp: Thomson Reuters reported higher sales and higher operating profit in the third quarter. The company’s “Big 3” segments, including Legal Professionals, Corporates, and Tax & Accounting Professionals, performed well. It reported adjusted earnings of 82 cents per share, although total revenue rose by 1% in the quarter to $1.59 billion, which missed expectations.
  2. Apple Inc: Apple investors are concerned about the potential impact of Huawei’s resurgence in China on the company’s holiday-quarter expectations.
  3. Canada Goose Holdings: Canada Goose cut its annual sales forecast due to challenges in the Chinese market. While China demand had bounced back in previous quarters, the company’s outlook for a sustained recovery remains uncertain.
  4. CVS Health Corp: CVS Health beat Wall Street estimates for quarterly profit. The strength in its drugstores and pharmacy benefit management business offset higher-than-expected medical costs at its insurance unit.
  5. Royal Bank of Canada: The bank has injected about $2.95 billion into its U.S. unit, City National Bank, to bolster its capital, making it one of the biggest annual infusions of funds since acquiring the Los Angeles-based bank in 2015.

  9. Assurant Inc: The insurer reported a surge in third-quarter adjusted profit, helped by the strong performance of its global housing unit and higher investment returns.
  10. Chesapeake Energy Corp: Chesapeake Energy beat Wall Street estimates for third-quarter profit, mainly due to lower overall costs that helped offset the impact of falling natural gas prices.
  11. Equity Residential: The real estate investment trust revised its full-year revenue growth forecast, citing underperformance in rental markets in San Francisco and Seattle but growth in East Coast markets like New York and Boston.
  12. Estee Lauder Companies Inc: The company cut its annual profit forecast and said it expects a drop in annual sales, partly due to a slower-than-anticipated recovery in its Asia travel retail business.
  13. First Solar Inc: The solar panel maker reported a third-quarter profit, compared to a year-ago loss, attributed to steady demand for renewable energy.
  14. Freshworks Inc: The company forecasted annual revenue and profit above expectations due to sustained demand for its relatively inexpensive software products for enterprises.

  16. GSK plc: The drugmaker raised its full-year profit and sales forecasts for a second time, thanks to better-than-expected quarterly sales of its newly-launched respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccine.

  18. Livent Corp: The lithium producer posted a lower-than-expected quarterly profit and cut its annual revenue and earnings forecast, citing expansion delays in Argentina.

  22. Telefonica SA: Brazilian telco Telefonica Brasil reported a better-than-expected net profit for the third quarter, boosted by a solid customer base increase and price hikes.
  23. Ternium SA: The steelmaker reported a third-quarter adjusted net income of $271 million, up more than 77% from the previous year.
  24. Toyota Motor Corp: The automaker more than doubled its second-quarter profit and raised its full-year outlook, largely due to a weaker yen currency and robust global sales.
  25. Yum! Brands Inc: Yum Brands topped Wall Street estimates for quarterly sales, as inflation continues to weigh on budgets, prompting more consumers to turn to its brands like Taco Bell and Pizza Hut for cheaper restaurant meals.
  26. Amgen Inc & Johnson & Johnson: The U.S. FDA approved Amgen’s biosimilar version of Johnson & Johnson’s psoriasis treatment, Stelara, for multiple inflammatory diseases.
