Check out the companies making headlines in midday trading.

Amazon — Amazon shares fell 7.6% after the tech giant’s second-quarter report missed Wall Street revenue estimates for the first time in three years. The company also gave weak third-quarter guidance. However, Amazon beat on earnings, reporting profit of $15.12 per share versus analysts’ expectation of $12.30 per share, according to Refinitiv. The June quarter reflected the last full quarter of founder Jeff Bezos’ tenure as CEO.

Procter & Gamble — Shares of the consumer products giant rose 2% after the company beat analysts’ expectations in its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings report. P&G reported earnings of $1.13 per share on revenue of $18.95 billion, while analysts expected earnings of $1.08 per share on revenue of $18.41 billion. The company warned commodity and freight cost pressures could weigh on future profits.

Caterpillar – The industrial giant’s shares dropped 2.7% even after the company reported better-than-expected profit and revenue in the second quarter. Caterpillar beat estimates by 20 cents with adjusted quarterly earnings of $2.60 per share, according to Refinitiv. The stock has already risen more than 12% this year.

Robinhood — Shares of the newly public stock trading app ticked nearly 1% higher in its second day of trading on the Nasdaq. Robinhood sunk nearly 8.4% in its IPO on Thursday, after pricing at the low end of its range.

Ralph Lauren — Retail apparel stocks trended higher after U.S. consumer spending rose 1% in June, more than expected. The University of Michigan’s latest survey of consumers report also showed consumer sentiment edged upward at the end of July. Ralph Lauren’s stock gained about 3.2%. Shares of PVH — whose brands include Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein — added 1.1%, while Gap and Under Armour shares both edged higher as well.
