Investing.com -- Stocks in focus in premarket trading on Tuesday, 12th October. Please refresh for updates

  • Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock rose 1.0% after defying a general slump in Chinese car sales, posting its best month for local sales since the opening of its Shanghai factory. Overall Chinese car sales were down by 17% year-on-year in September.
  • GlaxoSmithKline ADRs (NYSE:GSK) rose 3.0% after Bloomberg reported that private equity groups interested in its consumer health care unit - soon to be spun off from the company's pharma operations - have attached a $54 billion valuation to it. GSK also profited from the news that it will pool resources with CureVac to work on a second-generation messenger RNA-based vaccine for fighting Covid-19. 
  • CureVac (NASDAQ:CVAC) stock slumped 15%, however, as it finally abandoned efforts to get its first generation drug approved by regulators. Clinical tests had shown it had only a 48% efficiency rate in preventing serious disease.
  • Chevron (NYSE:CVX) stock inched up 0.1% after the company dodged a demand from shareholders to present firm targets for cutting its carbon emissions. While a company presentation did lay out targets for the emissions the company itself produces, it only committed to a proportional decline in emissions from its products, rather than an absolute one. 
  • Fastenal (NASDAQ:FAST) stock rose 1.0% after the construction materials group produced quarterly earnings and guidance largely in line with expectations, although it warned of inflated input prices in the coming months. 
  • Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) stock rose 0.5%, reversing early losses, after confirming that its Columbus Day weekend schedule disruption caused it to cancel another 1,000 flights on Monday. 
  • American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) stock rose 1.0% after it forecast a narrower loss for the third quarter than many expected. Excluding one-offs, American expects to lose between $620 million and $675 million, compared to an average forecast of $741.7 million.
  • Signet Jewelers (NYSE:SIG) stock rose 4.5% after the company said it will buy Diamonds Direct for $490 million in cash.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           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.
