Top stock gainers

Oracle’s (NYSE:ORCL) shares rose over 12% after solid FQ3 earnings and a favorable outlook. Remaining Performance Obligations rose 29% to nearly $80B, according to CEO Safra Catz. Catz attributed this rise to new cloud infrastructure contracts and Gen2 AI infrastructure demand exceeding supply. Oracle expects 43% of the $80B commitments to convert to revenue in the next four quarters and ongoing hypergrowth in Gen2 Cloud Infrastructure, up 53% in Q3. Next week, Oracle (ORCL) will announce a cooperation with Nvidia (NVDA).


Bilibili’s (NASDAQ:BILI) shares jumped 6% after JPMorgan upgraded it to Neutral from Underweight and raised the price target to $11. Bilibili expects double-digit revenue growth in 2024, which is in line with consensus (+14% Y/Y). The upgrade balances risk and return. Despite Douyin’s game streaming competition, analysts predict Bilibili’s new game launches to boost income.

The airline forecast a flat increase in Revenue per Available Seat Mile and more Available Seat Miles for 1Q24.

AAL still expects Available Seat Miles to expand between +6.5% and +8.5% Y/Y in Q1, but overall revenue per available seat mile to drop between -3.5% and -5.5%. The airline maintained its FY2024 adjusted diluted EPS projection of $2.25–$3.25, compared to the consensus of $2.51.
