Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) stock rose 1% ahead of Tuesday’s quarterly results, amid sky-high confidence the tech giant can outperform given the market’s enthusiasm for all things AI.
Uber (NYSE: UBER) stock gained 1% after the ride-hailing company announced plans to issue $1.2 billion of five-year convertible notes, subject to market conditions.
General Motors (NYSE: GM) stock rose 2.3% after Kyle Vogt, the CEO of the auto giant’s robot-taxi unit Cruise, resigned from the company as the company undergoes a safety review of its U.S. fleet.
