Here are some of the biggest U.S. stock movers today:

  • Icahn Enterprises (NASDAQ:IEP) stock rose 20% after the WSJ reported that the renowned financier Carl Icahn and banks have finalized amended loan agreements that untie Icahn's personal loans from the trading price of Icahn Enterprises, months after short-seller Hindenburg flagged margin call risks.

  • Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) stock rose 0.4% after its Threads online social media service hit 100 million users, potentially threatening Twitter’s popularity.

  • Citigroup (NYSE:C) stock rose 0.4%, Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) stock fell 0.5%, and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) stock rose 0.4% ahead of Friday’s quarterly earnings reports.

  • FMC (NYSE:FMC) stock fell 10% after the chemical manufacturing company slashed its revenue outlook, citing “abrupt and unprecedented” volume declines.

  • Fisker (NYSE:FSR) stock rose 5.9% after the electric vehicle manufacturer announced a convertible notes offering of $340M and said it could be increased to $680M.
