Affirm Holdings Inc. (AFRM) was the largest gainer today.

Shares in the company rose 31.1% to $120.72.

“Affirm was riding high today on a better-than-expected revenue report,” said Sheri Bechtel, editor for Finder’s US share trading and investing team. “Fintech companies, like the buy-now, pay-later platform Affirm, are trending, so it’s no surprise its revenue performed so well in the second quarter. We’re seeing a lot of stocks responding to earnings news like this.”

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.”
