The shares of Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE:UBER) were last seen down 4% trading at $27.25, after it was announced Friday that a U.S. judge ordered the ride sharing behemoth to face a lawsuit claiming its "illegal predatory pricing" and other anti-competitive practices hindered competition. And today, the ride-sharing app's Eats program exited eight global markets, while subsidiary Careem laying off 31% of its workforce.

Uber stock is currently down 9.3% year-to-date. Although the shares tacked on 18% in the last month, they ran headfirst into their 80-day moving average, a trendline not conquered on a closing basis since early March. However, the equity remains comfortably distant from its March 18 record low of $13.71.
