By Liz Moyer

Investing.com -- U.S. stocks fell Friday as investors await more clarity on interest rates from the Federal Reserve. Here are the midday movers for Aug. 19:

  • Bed Bath & Beyond Inc (NASDAQ: BBBY ) stock, on a wild ride all week, fell 38%. Investors are fleeing after activist Ryan Cohen sold his stake. Meme stock traders had bid up the shares of the home goods retailer until he disclosed his intention to sell.
  • Cineworld Group (LON: CINE ) shares plunged 53% after a report the theater operator was considering a bankruptcy filing. Admissions remain below expectations because of a weak calendar for movie premieres in the third quarter. Other theater shares also fell, including AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC ), down 6%.
  • Wayfair Inc (NYSE: W ) stock fell 19% after the e-commerce furniture retailer said it was cutting 5% of its workforce, saying it overestimated growth in the home goods sector.
  • Foot Locker Inc (NYSE: FL ) shares jumped 20% after it said Mary Dillon, the former chief of Ulta Beauty (NASDAQ: ULTA ), would take over as its CEO from Richard Johnson starting next month.
  • Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL ) shares dipped 0.7% after the iPhone maker said people should update their phones, iPads and Mac devices after it discovered some security flaws and issued a patch to fix them.
