Vail Resorts Inc (MTN) was the top gainer today.

Shares in the company rose 6.4% to $348.68.

“It’s not quite ski season yet, but Vail Resorts saw its stock rise Friday after it beat fourth-quarter revenue expectations,” said Sheri Bechtel, editor for Finder’s US share trading and investing team. “This is the third quarter in a row that Vail has beaten quarterly revenue expectations. In the fourth quarter, revenues were $204.2 million, well above the $177 million consensus. The company reportedly had a strong ski season last year, but it remains to be seen how COVID restrictions will impact the coming ski season.”

Another strong performer was IAC/InterActiveCorp (IAC), a Nasdaq company.

It rose 6.2% to reach $142.00.

“Movement on IAC’s stock Friday was fueled largely by reports that it may be buying up magazine publisher Meredith,” said Bechtel. “The proposed $2.5 billion deal catapulted shares of Meredith (MDP) by more than 30% on the session. If the deal goes through, it would add titles like People magazine and The Daily Beast to IAC’s holdings.”
