Stocks moving in after hours: Netflix, United Airlines, Intuitive Surgical, J.B. Hunt
Yahoo Finance Live anchor Seana Smith looks at which tickers are making the biggest moves in after-hours trading.
RACHELLE AKUFFO: Seana, let's take a look at what's trending in after hours.
SEANA SMITH: All right, Rachelle. We've got a couple of big gainers here on the board, Netflix, United, Intuitive Surgical, and JB Hunt, all has to do with earnings. Let's kick it off with Netflix, the stock popping here after hours, a very, very strong subscriber growth number. That's the reason that we're seeing a 13 and 1/2% jump in shares after hours, 2.4 million subscribers added during its most recent quarter.
They added customers in every region here, surging past what Wall Street was looking for. That's a big reason why you're seeing that jump today. The company, though, did offer revenue guidance that came in just a bit light. But it doesn't look like that's holding too much weight, at least for now.
The company says that it is on the path to reaccelerate growth. A sequential decline in revenue was entirely due to the strong dollar. Taking a look at the past three months, Netflix, you can see, has gotten some of its momentum back with shares up 26%. On a year-to-date basis, though, we are still well in the red, off just around 60%.
Let's take a look at United, another company out with earnings here after the bell. You're seeing the stock up just around 7 and 1/2%, beating on both the top and bottom lines, revenue of $12.9 billion, adjusted EPS of $2.81. The company saying that COVID recovery trend to overcome some of those recessionary pressures, very similar to what we heard from Delta when Delta gave that upbeat guidance here for the holiday quarter. Taking a look at the past three months, you can see United still in the red, though, off just around 5%.
Taking a look at Intuitive Surgical, another mover here to the upside, up just over 8%, a beat on both the top and bottom line. Revenue for the third quarter, coming in above 11%-- up 11% from a year ago at $1.56 billion, EPS at $1.19. That was better than what the Street was looking for.
The company did say, though, that profit did decline from a year ago because of rising expenses. Doesn't look like the Street is too worried about that, at least for now. Over the past three months, the stock off just around 6%. On a year-to-date basis, we're off just around 46%.
All right, let's round it out here with JB Hunt, the transportation services company. Taking a look at these numbers here, $2-- $2.47-- $2.57-- excuse me-- on EPS, and that was better than what the Street was looking for. Operating revenue up 22% year-over-year at $3.84 billion. Year-to-date, the stock is still in the red, though, off just around 17%.
