Delta Air Lines — Shares rose 2.6% after being upgraded by Evercore ISI to outperform in line. The company said it sees several catalysts for the airline and investors should buy into the dip.

WW International — Small-cap stock rose 49% after the company formerly known as Weight Watchers announced it would acquire telehealth company Sequence. The deal could help WW enter the obesity drug market.

Joby Aviation – The electric aircraft maker fell 5.2% after Deutsche Bank downgraded the stock’s rating to sell from hold. Analyst Edison Yu said the plane’s weight raised questions and led him to question whether the design is “overly aggressive.”

Snap – Shares of the tech company gained 4.1%, adding to the 13% it gained on Monday. The move comes as a new bipartisan Senate bill that will give President Joe Biden the power to rein in its rival, TikTok, is set to be unveiled.
