The second-best mover was Peloton Interactive Inc (PTON), a Nasdaq company.
It rose 8.5% to reach $116.16.
“Peloton has struggled, particularly after some of its treadmills were recalled, so any good news is good news for the stock,” said Bechtel. “In this case, Peloton has come out with its own brand of active apparel. I’d still keep an eye on the stock, as this positive movement seems to be headline-based.”
