The days’ stock news:

  • Shares of Wells Fargo finished 6% higher after being upgraded at Baird, who said the stock’s decline this year is an opportunity to add bank exposure and that Wells Fargo had a highly attractive valuation.
  • Beyond Meat shares declined 4% after being downgraded at Citigroup, which implied a 12% downside from Thursday’s close of $141.22. Citi expects the meatless meat maker to face long-term pressure from competition.
  • An analyst at Rosenblatt Securities raised their price of the chipmaker Nvidia to $500 per share from $400, saying a secular shift into-data processing units and the company’s entrance into new markets will drive revenue growth for Nvidia in the years ahead.
