Ride-sharing app Uber appears to excel in how to be in the news for all the wrong reasons. Earlier this year, the company was accused of turning a blind eye to sexual harassment in the office. Later on, there was a viral video showing its CEO Travis Kalanick berating an Uber driver. Then, this week, it landed in more trouble when it was sued over one of its app features that tracks drivers. But despite the negative publicity, Uber continues to remain one of the highest valued privately held companies and the market continues to await its IPO.
But first the numbers. Ubers constant legal battles havent hurt its financials. According to market reports, Uber generated $6.5 billion in revenue last year with gross bookings doubling to $20 billion. Further news leaks suggest that Ubers net revenues grew to $1.7 billion in Q4 2016. But losses continue to mount. Net losses have grown from $2 billion a year ago to $2.8 billion in 2016. But analysts believe that the losses may be beginning to narrow.

Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Microsoft Corp.(Nasdaq: MSFT), and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) received approval from the U.S. Transportation Department to begin pilot programs for drone delivery services. Missing from the list of approved companies was Amazon.com Inc.(Nasdaq: AMZN). The tech giant has long been an advocate for drone delivery, and its absence came as a surprise to the tech community. It will be a busy day for economic data announcements. Most important will be a report on inflation at 8:30 EDT. Strong price growth has picked up to start the year. This has many economists anticipating that the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise interest rates to stave off additional inflation. Meanwhile, the Bank of England announced that it will hold its benchmark interest rate at 0.5%. The country is still facing economic uncertainty over Brexit.
Three Stocks to Watch Today: BKNG, SHLD, F
A weak guidance report has shares of Booking Holdings Inc.(Nasdaq: BKNG) off 6% this morning. Although the travel site operator easily topped Wall Street earnings and revenue expectations, the firm once known as Priceline offered a weak 2018 outlook. That sent investors heading for the exits.
Sears Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: SHLD) stock popped more than 16% on Wednesday afternoon. The news came after the embattled retail company announced plans to partner with Amazon.comto sell tires. The plan is part of the company’s broader turnaround strategy to make the retail firm profitable again. Ford Motor Co.(NYSE: F) made a stunning announcement on Wednesday. The company said that it will halt production of its F-Series pickup truck. But the move will only be temporary. A fire at a Michigan plant temporarily caused the automotive giant to run out of parts for the top-selling U.S. vehicle. The shutdown could last several weeks, although the company said it has enough parts inventory to last about 12 weeks. Look for additional earnings reports from Nvidia Corp.(Nasdaq: NVDA
