Investing.com -- U.S. stock futures were mixed Monday, as investors awaited more crucial economic data as well as speeches from a number of Federal Reserve officials.

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

  • Autodesk (NASDAQ:ADSK) stock rose 5.2% after activist investor Starboard Value acquired a stake worth approximately $500 million in the design-software manufacturer, and is now advocating for changes within the company.

  • GameStop (NYSE:GME) fell 1% ahead of the video game retailer’s annual meeting later in the session, after it was postponed last week due to a technical glitch resulting from high demand from shareholders.

  • UBS (UBS) stock rose 1.4% after the Swiss banking giant said it will set aside around $900 million to repay investors in Credit Suisse funds that were linked to collapsed supply chain financing firm Greensill Capital, accounting for 90% of what they are owed.

  • Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) (BBY) stock rose 3.2% after UBS upgraded its investment stance on the electronics retailer to ‘buy’ from ‘neutral’, citing a positive outlook, supported by the company’s ongoing restructuring efforts.

  • Primo Water (NYSE:PRMW) stock fell 4% after the packaged water company said it would merge with BlueTriton Brands in an all-stock deal.

  • Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) stock fell 3%, with the cryptocurrency exchange weighed by more losses in bitcoin, the world’s most popular digital currency.

  • AMC Networks (NASDAQ:AMCX) stock slumped 32% after the entertainment company announced a $125 million convertible offering.

  • Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) rose 3.7%, adding to recent gains. Shares are up 23% since it reported second quarter results and announced plans for a stock split last week.

  • Corning (NYSE:GLW) rose 3.6% after analysts upgraded the stock to 'overweight."

  • Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) rose 4.75% following reports that said Shanghai is allowing tests of the company's most advanced autonomous driving software.
