Getaround stock soars on deal news, First Solar, Tesla, Beyond Meat and other stocks on the move

Here are some of the stocks on the move on Friday.

Stock gainers:

Shares of car-sharing company Getaround Inc. 

roared 55% after the company said late Thursday it plans to buy all of the assets of HyreCar Inc. 

for $9.45 million. HyreCar was down 46%.

First Solar Inc.’s stock

was up 23% to lead S&P 500 gainers after it said it would pay up to $80 million to acquire the perovskite technology company Evolar AB. Perovskite is a type of solar cell and the deal is expected to bolster First Solar’s position in thin film photovolataics, as Dow Jones Newswires reported.

Blue Bird Corp.

shares shot up 36% after the school-bus maker ratcheted up its sales outlook, reported estimate-beating quarterly results and said a turnaround plan to cut costs was “ahead of schedule.”

News Corp
the parent of MarketWatch publisher Dow Jones, reported fiscal third-quarter results that beat expectations, helped by a “decidedly more positive” economic backdrop, sending shares up 7%.

Icahn Enterprises LP’s stock

was up 7% in a rebound from recent selloffs. The company is in a battle with short seller Hindenburg Research, which has accused it of inflating asset values and questioned loans granted to Carl Icahn using his units as collateral.

Charles Schwab Corp.’s stock

gained 3% after the discount brokerage said its total client assets for April rose 1% over the previous month to $7.63 trillion, and were up 5% from April 2022. 

Beyond Meat Inc.’s stock

reversed early losses to trade up 3.8%, after Mizuho analysts cut their price target to $12 from $20 after its earnings this week.

Getty Images Holdings Inc.’s stock

rose 2.6% after a mixed-bag first quarter, but the photo and video library service’s full-year sales forecast came in a tad above expectations.

Stock decliners:

Tesla Inc. shares

surrendered early gains to trade down 2.2% after CEO Elon Musk named Linda Yaccarino, a veteran media executive with experience in advertising, as Twitter’s new CEO, months after promising to cede control.

Sanmina Corp. shares 

fell 7% after the electronics-manufacturing services provider’s results, and most but not all of its outlook, topped Wall Street expectations. 

SiriusPoint Ltd.’s stock

tumbled 9% after Dan Loeb’s hedge fund Third Point disclosed in a securities filing that’s it’s no longer pursuing an acquisition of the insurer after failing to agree on price.

Spectrum Brands Holdings Inc.’s stock

slid 2.5% after the consumer brands company posted a narrower-than-expected loss for its fiscal second quarter on Friday, but sales fell below consensus estimates on weakness in the home and garden segment.
