In U.S. economic data Thursday, first-time claims for unemployment benefits rose 21,000 last week to 218,000. The Philadelphia Federal Reserve’s regional manufacturing index dropped sharply to 2.6 in May, a two-year low, from 17.6 a month earlier.

Existing-home sales fell 2.4% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.61 million in April, the National Association of Realtors said Thursday. Compared with April 2021, home sales were down 5.9%. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal had expected a decrease to 5.64 million units.

  • Tesla Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203558040/composite TSLA +4.68% shares edged 0.1% lower after Wedbush analyst Dan Ives slashed his price target by 29%, citing “hard to ignore” headwinds in China, as COVID-related lockdowns have reduced demand.

  • Cisco Systems Inc. /zigman2/quotes/209509471/composite CSCO +1.55% shares fell 13.7% to lead Dow decliners after the network-equipment maker logged third-quarter revenue below analysts’ expectations and guided for lower fourth-quarter and fiscal 2022 revenue .
