Shares of Sundial Growers (NASDAQ: SNDL) were soaring 16.1% higher as of 11:18 a.m. ET on Monday. No outside investor should legally know what Sundial will report in its Q1 update. No insider who does know what the company will say can legally trade the marijuana stock.
Shares of the e-commerce platform company Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) were sliding today, on seemingly no company-specific news. Instead, investors were likely continuing to fear that high inflation and interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve could slow down the economy.

The stock market began giving back some of Friday's gains on Monday, and as of 12:40 p.m. ET, the tech-heavy Nasdaq was down 1.1% -- with significant deviations. Three tech stocks of particular interest today are videoconferencing app Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ: ZM), down 4.6%; cybersecurity company CrowdStrike Holdings (NASDAQ: CRWD), down 5.7%; and cloud communications platform Twilio (NYSE: TWLO), down 9.4%.

Is there a reason Nvidia is going down so much more than the rest of the tech market?

Shares of the Brazilian fintech bank Nu Holdings (NYSE: NU) had fallen close to 13% as of 12:37 p.m. ET Monday for no obvious reason, but as the company prepares to report earnings results after the market closes today.

Finance, analysts on average expect Nu to roughly break even in the quarter and report revenue of about $624 million.
Growth stocks have taken a beating after the Federal Reserve announced in late 2021 that it would start raising interest rates. Rising rates are bad for growth stocks because future cash flows are discounted at higher rates. For instance, Roblox (NYSE: RBLX) and Chegg (NYSE: CHGG) are two solid companies down 75% and 84%, respectively, off their highs.
The rout in the financial markets raises questions about the ability of upstart companies to raise funds.
The Dow Jones index finished last week with a modest loss, even after a late-week rally in Friday’s session.

After a stunning recovery late last week, Rivian Automotive (NASDAQ: RIVN) stock opened Monday on a somber note and was down 4.4% as of noon today. Multiple analysts have slashed their price targets on the electric vehicle (EV) stock in the past few days, and Rivian, which started delivering its flagship R1T pickup trucks only recently, is also recalling nearly 500 trucks for faulty airbags.
