Check out the companies making headlines in midday trading:

Target — Shares of the retailer pulled back more than 7% after a first-quarter earnings miss, underscored by a 3% year-over-year decline in sales.

Analog Devices — Stock in the semiconductor manufacturer surged more than 8% after second-quarter results beat analysts’ estimates. Massachusetts-based Analog reported adjusted earnings per share of $1.40 on revenue of $2.16 billion, compared to a consensus estimate from analysts polled by FactSet that forecast $1.26 in earnings per share and $2.11 billion in revenue.

Shopify — Shares climbed more than 3% on the heels of an upgrade to buy from Goldman Sachs, with the investment bank noting Shopify’s current share price gives investors an attractive entry point.

Urban Outfitters — The clothing retailer slid 4% despite posting a fiscal first-quarter beat, after trading higher before Tuesday’s opening bell. Urban Outfitters reported adjusted earnings of 69 cents per share, higher than the 52 cents per share analysts polled by LSEG had expected. Revenue of $1.20 billion also came in above the $1.18 billion consensus estimate.

Garmin — Shares slipped 4.8% in the wake of a downgrade to underperform from neutral by Bank of America. The firm said shares were “priced to perfection,” raising concern that the current valuation may be unsustainable.

PDD Holdings — Stock in the Chinese retailer ticked up roughly 2% due to a 131% jump in revenue in the first quarter.

Toll Brothers — Shares pulled back nearly 8% after the homebuilder beat Wall Street’s fiscal second-quarter estimates. Toll Brothers notched earnings per share of $4.55 on revenue of $2.65 billion, compared to forecasts from analysts surveyed by LSEG estimating $4.14 in earnings per share and $2.53 billion in revenue.

Hims & Hers Health — Stock in the digital pharmacy fell nearly 5% after a Citi downgrade to neutral, with the bank asserting that any further upside has already been priced into the stock following news that it would add GLP-1 drugs to its platform.

Lululemon — The athleisure stock declined more than 6% after a Wall Street Journal report said the company’s chief product officer was departing from the company.

Tesla — Stock in the Elon Musk-helmed electric vehicle company fell more than 3% after the company’s sales in Europe sank to a 15-month low, according to a Bloomberg report.

First Solar — Shares surged more than 18% in midday trading. UBS increased its price target on the solar company by more than 7% on Tuesday, with the firm positing that investors were overlooking First Solar’s potential benefit from the rise of artificial intelligence. Other alt energy stocks also surged, in part owing to enthusiasm that AI will lift power demand. Bloom Energy surged 18%; Sunnova Energy added 14%; and Enphase Energy, Fluence Energy and Sunrun were all up 10%.

Williams-Sonoma — The home furnishings retailer slipped 8% despite beating revenue estimates in the fiscal first quarter. The company said it expects full year revenue to be in a range of down 3% to up 3%, versus an analyst consensus of down 0.4%, according to FactSet.

Moderna — The drug developer surged more than 11% to a fresh 52-week high, gaining for an eighth straight day. Moderna has soared almost 60% in the past month, a period that includes reporting its latest financial results on May 2.
