Main U.S. indexes were mixed on Friday, in thin trading with the session set to close early the day after the Thanksgiving holiday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was higher by 0.25%, Nasdaq was lower by 0.15%, and the S&P 500 was flat.

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

Walmart (NYSE: WMT) stock rose 0.75% with the country’s largest retailer hoping to benefit from Black Friday sales. The retail bellwether Walmart has added parcel stations to its stores as it looks to cash in on demand for quick deliveries during the shopping season.

Coinbase (Nasdaq: COIN) shares climbed 6% after Bitcoin topped $38,000 for the first time since May of 2022. Riot Platforms (NASDAQ: RIOT), Microstrategy, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSTR) and Marathon Digital Holdings (NASDAQ: MARA) were also higher.
