  • Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) stock surged 12.2% after it reported earnings per share of $2.15 on revenue of $20.99 billion, which was higher than expected. Comparable sales rose 3.2%, despite a fall in lumber prices and difficult weather, the home-improvement retailer reported.
  • Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock tumbled 1.3% after reports that Walmart (NYSE:WMT) is suing it over fires allegedly caused by its solar panels.
  • Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) ADRs rose 0.3% despite a Reuters report that it is delaying plans for a $15 billion Hong Kong initial public offering due to growing political unrest in the city.
  • Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL) stock fell 1.3% after it reported a drop in orders during the second-quarter, pointing to weaker demand for new homes.
  • Urban Outfitters (NASDAQ:URBN) stock slipped 0.1% after the retailer posted mixed second-quarter results.
