Uber — The ride-hailing company’s shares tumbled more than 7% following a revenue miss. Uber posted $2.9 billion in revenue in the first quarter, below an estimate of $3.3 billion per Refinitiv.

Tapestry reported 51 cents in adjusted earnings per share on $1.27 billion in revenue. Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv had penciled in 31 cents per share on $1.22 billion in revenue. The company did not provide detailed guidance for the full fiscal year, citing uncertainty about the pandemic.
