Here are some of the biggest U.S. stock movers today:

  • CrowdStrike (NASDAQ:CRWD), KKR (KKR) and GoDaddy (NYSE:GDDY) all rose strongly after S&P Dow Jones Indices said the companies would be included in the S&P 500 later this month, replacing Robert Half (NYSE:RHI), Comerica (NYSE:CMA) and Illumina (NASDAQ:ILMN).

  • DraftKings (NASDAQ:DKNG) stock rose 2% after analysts added the betting company to its Top Pick list, citing positive catalysts from capital return and reiterated guidance.

  • Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) stock rose 3% after analysts resumed coverage of the semiconductor company at ‘overweight’, calling it one of the strongest AI plays.

(NYSE:MTB), and First Horizon National (NYSE:FHN) all trading lower by about 2%. The regional Banking ETF (KRE) fell 2.25%.
