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

  • Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX ) stock fell 6.4% after the streaming giant’s quarterly revenue and forecast fell short of estimates, even after it reported nearly 6 million subscriber additions.

  • Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA ) stock fell 3.6% after CEO Elon Musk revealed plans to continue price cuts, squeezing future margins, which outweighed the EV manufacturer comfortably beating second-quarter profit forecasts.

  • IBM (NYSE: IBM ) stock fell 0.9% after the tech giant’s second-quarter revenue fell short of expectations, bogged down by a decline in sales of its mainframe computers as businesses cut tech spending.

  • Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ ) stock rose 1.4% after the pharmaceutical company beat second-quarter earnings expectations and lifted its 2023 profit forecast as it builds out its drug and medical devices pipeline.

  • AB InBev ADRs (NYSE: BUD ) rose 0.6% after Morgan Stanley upgraded its stance on the brewer to ‘overweight’ from ‘neutral’, saying it is now attractively valued after the Bud Light controversy.

  • Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM ) stock fell 3.5% after the Taiwanese chipmaker forecast a drop of around 10% in 2023 sales and flagged investment spending at the low end of estimates.

  • American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL ) stock fell 1.3% despite the carrier raising its annual forecast for adjusted profit despite fears of a looming economic slowdown.

  • Philip Morris (NYSE: PM ) stock rose 0.1% after the tobacco giant impressed with its quarterly profit, boosted by a let-up in soaring tobacco and labor costs and buoyant demand for its Zyn and IQOS products.

  • Blackstone (NYSE: BX ) stock fell 3.2% after the asset manager said its second-quarter distributable earnings slumped nearly 40%, owing to a sharp drop in asset sales.

  • DR Horton (NYSE: DHI ) stock rose 3.8% after the home builder raised its forecast for full-year revenue, benefiting from strong demand and easing shortages of labor and construction supplies.

  • Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT ) stock rose 0.7% after the medical devices manufacturer beat expectations for second-quarter profit, due to recovery in surgical procedure volumes and demand for its diabetes care devices.
