Investing.com -- Main U.S. indexes declined Wednesday after hot inflation data made Fed rate cuts in June or July appear less likely.

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

Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) stock outperformed major averages after the carrier offered up an upbeat outlook for the current quarter after its first-quarter earnings topped estimates on buoyant travel demand.

Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA) (MRNA) stock fell 3.9%, paring the previous session’s 6% gains after the drugmaker issued cancer-vaccine data that suggests its drug may work in indications outside its target of melanoma.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM) stock rose 1.5% after the world’s biggest chipmaker said that its sales in March jumped sharply, likely benefiting from increased demand for chips from the artificial intelligence industry.

Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) (BABA) ADRs rose 1.3% after Chinese media reports showed co-founder Jack Ma endorsing the e-commerce giant’s current leadership in an internal memo.

WD-40 Company (NASDAQ:WDFC) (WDFC) fell 5% after the household products company reported lower than expected revenue for its fiscal second quarter, and issued muted guidance for the full year.

Albemarle (NYSE:ALB) (ALB) stock fell 0.8% but outperformed peers after BofA Securities upgraded its stance on the lithium miner to ‘buy’ from ‘hold’, based on the assessment that lithium pricing, which saw a low point in the first quarter of 2024, is poised for improvement.

Deckers Outdoor (NYSE:DECK) declined 7% after analysts at Truist cut their rating on the stock to ‘hold’ from ‘buy’.

Hexcel Corp . (NYSE:HXL) declined 11% after analysts at BofA lowered their rating on the stock to ‘underperform’ from ‘neutral’, citing near-term uncertainty.

Revolution (RVMD) gained 6% after analysts at Raymond James upgraded the stock to ‘strong buy.’
