Investing.com -- Stocks were rising on a Meta-fueled tech rally that lifted the Nasdaq more than 3% on Thursday. Here are the midday movers for Feb.2.

  • Meta Platforms Inc (NASDAQ:META) shares rose more than 25% after the parent of Facebook and Instagram beat expectations for revenue in the recent quarter and outlined more steps it was taking to control costs.
  • Align Technology Inc (NASDAQ:ALGN) stock rose 28% after the maker of clear Invisalign dental devices beat expectations for earnings and revenue and announced a $1 billion share buyback.
  • UnitedHealth Group Incorporated (NYSE:UNH) shares fell 6.6% along with other healthcare stocks, weighed by a proposal for lower-than-expected Medicare Advantage rates.

  • Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE:LLY) shares fell 6.2% after its revenue fell short of expectations, while rival pharmaceutical maker Merck & Company Inc (NYSE:MRK) fell 4% after offering 2023 guidance that didn't meet expectations as sales of Covid treatments are expected to fall. Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) stock rose 1.6% after it beat expectations
  • Harley-Davidson Inc (NYSE:HOG) stock rose 9% after the motorcycle maker reported better demand, which helped it drive home solid earnings for the most recent quarter.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
