06:13 EDTWMTWal-Mart releases statement on early Black Friday results
Wal-Mart Senior VP of Merchandising Laura Phillips said, “Last night was awesome! In a few short hours, we flipped from being the largest grocery store in town to the best gift shop on the block. Not only did we have millions of customers shopping our stores, but we’re confident Walmart was the first stop of the night for most of them. We saw lines for tablets and TVs snaking throughout the stores, and with our exclusive 1-Hour Guarantee, customers left happy. Our customers came with a plan to win. More than 25 million people downloaded our Black Friday ad, and 20 million customers used their local store maps on Walmart.com. Online shopping started while turkeys were still in the oven and yesterday was our second-highest online sales day ever – topped only by Cyber Monday last year. Tablets, TVs, sheets, children’s apparel, and video gaming were the top five categories of the night in our stores."

12:36 EDTGEMobileye growth story remains intact, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo attributes yesterday's pullback in Mobileye (MBLY) shares to concerns about the company's autonomous content in the long-term. Wells believes that while GM (GM) and Tesla (TSLA) semi-autonomous features initially will require only one EyeQ3 chip, the chip content will increase as the systems become more sophisticated. The firm thinks Mobileye's growth story remains intact and keeps an Outperform rating on the name. It raised its price target range for shares to $52-$56 from $51-$55.
