This morning, Raymond James issued a downgrade to "market perform" from "outperform," sending BMBL down 1.7% to trade at $10.63 and expanding the year-to-date deficit to 27.7%.

GCT Semiconductor Holding Inc (NYSE:GCTS) stock is up 53.4% to trade at $8.79, pacing the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), after the chipmaker signed a deal with state-owned Aramco to accelerate the development of the 4G and 5G Saudi Arabian ecosystem. GCTS surged to a March 27, record high of $55, but still carries a 16.6% deficit for 2024.

Toward the bottom of the NYSE, meanwhile, is Ermenegildo Zegna NV (NYSE:ZGN). Shares were last seen down 15.8% to trade at $11.75, earlier slipping to their lowest level since January, despite a 19.3% increase in full-year organic revenue a 20% hike to its annual dividend amid strong demand. Shares are gapping firmly below the 60-day moving average, and shed 13% in the last six months.
