Oil futures settle higher, with U.S. prices at highest in over 2 weeks
Oil futures settled higher on Thursday, with U.S. prices at their highest in more than two weeks a day after the Energy Information Administration reported weekly declines in U.S. crude, gasoline and distillate supplies. Volatility in oil remains, given the spread of the COVID variant, said Dan Flynn, an analyst at The Price Futures Group. However, "demand is increasing even with the headlines that a year ago would have sent shockwaves in the market," he said. West Texas Intermediate crude for September delivery climbed by $1.23, or 1.7%, to settle at $73.62 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the highest front-month finish since July 13, FactSet data show.

Poly POLY, the company formerly known as Plantronics, saw its shares fall in the extended session Thursday after the business audio and video products maker said the ongoing global chip shortage would affect its business.

Amazon stock falls ahead of earnings report, with options traders not expecting too much action after results
Shares of Amazon.com Inc. fell 1.0% in afternoon trading, as investors braced for the ecommerce and cloud giant's second-quarter earnings report due out after the closing bell. The stock has declined the day after the past three earnings reports were released, and after eight of the past 11 reports for an average decline of 3.9% during those days, according to data provided by FactSet. Options traders aren't expecting too much action in the stock after the earnings report. An options strategy known as a straddle, which involves the simultaneous buying of both bullish options (calls) and bearish ones (puts) with the same "at the money" strike price, implied a post-earnings move of $115.61 in Amazon's stock price in either direction on Friday, compared with an average move of $136.55 after the past 12 quarterly reports, according to data provided by Option Research & Technology Services (ORATS) principal Matt Amberson. Amazon's stock has gained 3.5% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has advanced 5.0%.
