Investing.com -- U.S. stocks wobbled on Tuesday, but tech stocks tried to stage a rally midday. Here are the midday movers for Aug. 2:

  • Pinterest Inc (NYSE: PINS ) shares jumped after hours on Monday and continued to climb Tuesday, up 11% after activist investor Elliott Management said it was the social media company's biggest shareholder. 

  • Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE: UBER ) stock rose 16% after stronger than expected revenue for the last quarter and a 33% surge in bookings. A loss per share was attributed to declines in the value of investments such as Aurora, Grab and Zomato.
  • JetBlue Airways Corp (NASDAQ: JBLU ) shares fell more than 6% after a disappointing second quarter as higher fuel costs and labor shortages weighed on results. The carrier, which recently won its battle to buy Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE ), still said it's on track to be profitable for the second half of this year.
  • BP (LON: BP ) PLC ADR (NYSE: BP ) shares rose 1.7% after the major oil producer reported record second quarter profits that beat expectations amid soaring fuel prices. 
  • Molson Coors Brewing Co (NYSE: TAP ) shares fell nearly 10% after the brewer reported softening beer sales as some inflation-pinched consumers are trading higher-priced brands for cheaper labels.
