Check out the companies making the biggest moves midday Tuesday:

Illumina – Shares of the biotechnology company rose 3.5% after Illumina announced plans to appeal a European Commission ruling banning the company’s acquisition of Grail. The move follows a ruling last week by a U.S. Federal Trade Commission judge in favor of the deal.

Digital World Acquisition Corp – Shares of the blank check acquisition company, which agreed to merge with Donald Trump’s social media company, Trump Media & Technology Group, fell nearly 15%. The move follows a Reuters report that Digital World Acquisition failed to garner enough shareholder support for a one-year extension to complete the deal.

Bed Bath & Beyond – The dejected stock continued its losing streak, dropping another 16.7%. On Tuesday, the home goods retailer named its chief accounts officer as interim chief financial officer after his predecessor, Gustavo Arnal, took his own life on Friday.

Alibaba – Shares of the Chinese e-commerce company fell 3.7% after China announced new Covid restrictions at its southern technology hub in Shenzhen from Monday, and Chengdu announced an extension of restrictions on lockdown. A total of 33 Chinese cities are under full or partial lockdown as the country sticks to its zero-Covid policy.

FedEx – The shipping giant slid 2.5% after Citi downgraded FedEx to neutral long. The bank forecast a slowdown in volumes ahead for FedEx and cited headwinds and macroeconomic challenges in the freight industry among the reasons for the downgrade.

Rollins – The pest control stock jumped more than 5.3% on an upgrade to outperform sector performance by RBC Capital Markets. The investment firm said in a note that Rollins’ business model is “recession-proof.”

NextEra Energy – Shares of the utility company rose 3% after Morgan Stanley put NextEra overweight from equal weight. The investment firm said the company would be “one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Cut Inflation Act.”
