Here are the companies making headlines in midday trading.
Spotify — The streaming audio stock fell just shy of 9% after the company's monthly active users for the first quarter disappointed investors. Spotify also cut its full year guidance for the metric. The company did report a smaller-than-expected loss for the first three months of the year.
Shopify — Shares of the e-commerce company popped nearly 10% after Shopify reported adjusted earnings per share that were close to triple what analysts had projected. The company reported $2.01 in adjusted earnings per share on $989 million in revenue. Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting 74 cents per share and $865 million in revenue.
Microsoft — Shares of the software giant stumbled 3.3% on Wednesday despite Microsoft reporting beats on the top and bottom lines for its fiscal third quarter. Some Wall Street analysts pointed toward concerns about the growth of Azure, Microsoft's cloud business, as a reason for the selling pressure.
Boeing — Shares of the aircraft-maker lost more than 3% after posing its sixth-straight quarterly loss. Boeing reported a loss of $1.53 per share. The company made $15.22 billion in revenue, topping estimates of $15.02 billion, according to Refinitiv.
Pinterest – The social media company's stock slid more than 13% after Pinterest missed user growth expectations for the first quarter. However, the company beat top and bottom line estimates for the period. Pinterest earned 11 cents on $485 million in revenue, compared to forecasts of a 7-cent profit and $474 million in revenue, according to estimates from Refinitiv. Monthly active users came in at 478 million, short of the expected 480.5 million.
Enphase Energy – Shares of the microinverter maker slid more than 15% following the company's first-quarter results. Enphase beat top and bottom line estimates for the period, but guidance was light amid ongoing semiconductor shortages. "Looking to Q2, our shipment volumes will be constrained by semiconductor component availability," Enphase's CEO said on the earnings call.
Alphabet – Shares of Google-parent Alphabet gained nearly 4% after reporting better-than-expected earnings after the bell on Tuesday. Alphabet saw its revenues grow 34% from a year ago.
