Uber says it saw its highest gross bookings on record in MarchUber Technologies Inc. [s:uber] said Monday morning that its mobility business had its best month in a year in March, while overall gross bookings reached their highest monthly level in the company's history. Uber's mobility business exceeded a $30 billion annualized gross bookings run rate during March, the company's highest monthly total since March 2020. Average daily gross bookings were up 9% on a month-over-month basis within the core mobility business, the company added. Uber's delivery business notched an all-time record for monthly performance by crossing a $52 billion annualized gross bookings run rate, up more than 150% from a year earlier. "As vaccination rates increase in the United States, we are observing that consumer demand for Mobility is recovering faster than driver availability, and consumer demand for Delivery continues to exceed courier availability," Uber said in a filing. The company also disclosed that a historical-claims settlement process with U.K. drivers, who will now be treated as workers, is expected to lead to a "significant accrual" that's likely to reduce reported first-quarter revenue and take rates. These effects will be excluded from Uber's adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Ebitda). Uber shares are up 3% in premarket trading Monday. The shares have gained 5.7% over the past three months as the S&P 500 has risen 8.6%.

Wayfair's stock sinks after Merrill Lynch downgrades, citing expected 'deceleration' in salesShares of Wayfair Inc. sank 8.0% in afternoon trading Friday, after BofA Securities analyst Justin Post downgraded the home furnishings online retailer, citing evidence of a deceleration in sales trends. The stock, which has pared earlier intraday loss of a much as 14.9%, has still shed 25.9% since closing at a record $342.40 on Aug. 26. Post cut his rating to neutral, after being at buy since April 7. He kept his stock price target at $330, which is 30.1% above current levels. "Expectations and valuation are high vs. history, and we expect revenue deceleration ahead, which has been a historical valuation headwind for the stock," Post wrote in a note to clients. "We think [quarter-to-date] stock appreciation has been fueled by expectations for upside, but given recent data points, we see less upside to Street estimates for 58% growth in 3Q." The stock has gained 28.4% so far this quarter, compared with a 20.5% rise in the Amplify Online Retail ETF over the same time and the S&P 500's 9.4% advance.

Apple stock heads for worst day since March amid tech weaknessShares of Apple Inc. are off 6.7% in Thursday trading and on track for their worst single-day percentage decline since March 16, when the shares shed 12.9%. The drop for Apple shares comes on a generally weak day for tech stocks, with the Nasdaq Composite Index down 505.45 points, or 4.2%, in the session. Apple shares were the subject of some optimism ahead of the trading session as Evercore ISI analyst Amit Daryanani chimed in with an upbeat note before trading began. "Apple has generally outperformed [relative to the S&P 500 ] following previous splits and we think this trend should sustain as fundamentals continue to improve," he wrote in report to clients. "While the current multiple is a premium relative to history, we think it is justified given: a) consumer staple narrative and b) high probability for double digit growth in FY21." Apple shares have rallied 51% over the past three months as the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 8.2%.
