In the days’ stock news:

 

  • Lyft closed up more than 6% after beating on the top and bottom lines of its quarterly results. Gains were capped by the fact that Lyft reported fewer active riders than in the prior quarter.
  • CVS Health closed down 5.5% even after the company topped expectations in its fourth-quarter earnings report, as demand for at-home Covid tests and vaccines lifted overall store sales. The drugstore chain administered more than 20 million Covid vaccines in the three-month period, a significant jump from the number it gave in each of the prior two quarters.
