Stocks had their second massive up day in a row Tuesday, posting their best 2-day run since April 2020. Amid the upside several rumors drove trading action in some select stocks. Below we highlighted a few:

DXC Technology (NYSE:DXC) was back in the rumor mill today on word from Bloomberg News that private equity firm Baring Private Equity Asia approached the company about a takeover. This follows a report last week from Investing.com that a takeover price of around $45 per share is being discussed with a private equity buyer. Later today, DXC confirmed that it was approached by a "financial sponsor" and said it is engaged in preliminary discussions but said there are no assurances a deal will be reached.

Fashion resale stocks The RealReal Inc. (NASDAQ:REAL) and ThredUp (NASDAQ:TDUP) each gained over 16% Tuesday on news that peer Poshmark Inc (NASDAQ:POSH) was acquired by Korean e-commerce giant Naver for $1.4 billion. The news had analysts asking "who's next" in the sector.

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is said to be freezing corporate hiring in its retail business for the rest of the year, The New York Times reported. Amazon's cloud computing unit is not expected to be impacted.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
