Investing.com -- Stocks in focus in premarket trading on Monday, 18th October. Please refresh for updates.

  • Albertsons (NYSE:ACI) stock rose 4.3% after the grocery chain raised its earnings guidance for the year by more than 10% on the back of a stronger-than-expected third quarter. The company also raised its quarterly dividend by 20%.

  • Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) stock fell 0.4%, in line with the broader market, after The Wall Street Journal reported that members of a Congressional panel had asked the company to ensure its managers - including former CEO Jeff Bezos - hadn't misled it in earlier testimony. The concerns revolve around suspicions that Amazon abuses its dominance in the online shopping market to undermine competition by copying emerging competitors.
  • State Street (NYSE:STT) stock rose 1.4% after the bank reported a slightly better-than-expected quarter, in which earnings rose by 29% from a year earlier. 
  • Kering (PA:PRTP) ADRs fell 1.5% as the Gucci owner was hit by fears that slower spending in China would hit luxury companies disproportionately hard. Burberry (OTC:BURBY) ADRs fell 6.3% and Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) stock fell 1.4% on similar concerns. 
  • Philips (NYSE:PHG) ADRs fell 3.1% after the company warned that shipping problems and chip shortages will hit earnings in the current quarter, while also revealing a bigger-than-expected hit from a product recall earlier in the year.
  • Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) stock fell 2% after analysts at Barclays (LON:BARC) downgraded to 'equal weight' from 'overweight', citing a slowdown in growth at the company's Disney+ streaming unit. Analyst Kannan Venkateshwar cut his target price to $175 from $210 previously. Rival Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX)'s stock rose 0.7% after reports suggesting that the company reckons its "Squid Game" series could be worth $900 million to it.
  • Valneva (NASDAQ:VALN) ADRs rose 33% after the French-based company said trial data showed its experimental drug for treating Covid-19 was more effective than AstraZeneca (NASDAQ:AZN)'s vaccine. 
  • Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE:ICE) stock rose 1.2% to a new all-time high after private equity group Silver Lake agreed to buy its stake in clearing house Euroclear for $820 million.

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
