GW Pharma shares slide 12% after company swings to loss during pandemic
Shares of GW Pharmaceuticals PLC slumped 12% Friday, after the company swung to a loss in the second quarter, hurt by the effect of the coronavirus pandemic. The U.K. company is the only one to have U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for a cannabis-based drug, Epidiolex, a treatment for severe forms of childhood epilepsy. The company posted a loss of $8.8 million, or 2 cents a share, for the quarter, after income of $79.7 million in the year-earlier period. Revenue rose to $121.3 million from $72.0 million. "We were pleased with the strength of U.S. Epidiolex sales in the second quarter in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic," Chief Executive Justin Gover said in a statement. Epidiolex sales came to $117.7 million. "Further, the recent approval and imminent launch of Epidiolex for the treatment of seizures associated with TSC provides a meaningful new opportunity to accelerate momentum through the second half of 2020 and beyond," he said. Leerink analyst Marc Goodman said the numbers were "solid" coming in the midst of the pandemic, and in line with management's guidance from its first-quarter conference call. "... we think GW executed through the volatility well, and thus we are surprised that the stock is down ~10% in the after market," he wrote in a Thursday note to clients. Leerink rates the stock as outperform with a $190 stock price target. Shares have gained 11% in the year to date, as the S&P 500 has gained 3.6%.

TikTok slams Trump Administration for new order banning dealings with the company
Popular mobile app TikTok said in a Friday statement that it was "shocked" by the Trump Administration's executive order that will ban U.S. companies from dealing with the owner of TikTok starting in 45 days. The Administration issued a separate order Thursday banning transactions with WeChat, which is owned by Tencent Holdings Ltd. While the specifics of the orders remain somewhat vague, President Donald Trump has been threatening a ban on TikTik use in the U.S., citing national security concerns. TikTok said that it has "sought to engage with the U.S. government in good faith" but that what the company "encountered instead was that the Administration paid no attention to facts, dictated terms of an agreement without going through standard legal processes, and tried to insert itself into negotiations between private businesses." TikTok maintained that it has never shared user data with the China government and hinted at a possible legal battle ahead. "We will pursue all remedies available to us in order to ensure that the rule of law is not discarded and that our company and our users are treated fairly - if not by the Administration, then by the U.S. courts," the company said.

Stock Market Today: 'FAAMNGs' Do the Market's Talking
The major indices closed higher for a fifth consecutive day on Thursday. However, it was a "lumpy" performance that saw the "FAAMNGs" - or FAANGs, or FANGs, depending on which tech-related mega-cap stocks you're referring to - do most of the pushing, while broad swaths of the market failed to join in.

Wall Street received a little good news in that new unemployment-benefits applications declined last week to 1.2 million, well below analyst estimates for 1.4 million, but it still marked the 20th consecutive week of 1 million or more new jobless claims.

"That said, with initial claims still above a million, there is a long way to go for labor markets to normalize to pre-COVID levels.

Meanwhile, federal stimulus negotiations remained stalled Thursday, leaving little hope that a deal will be hammered out before the weekend.

Nonetheless, Facebook (FB, 6.5%) rallied after launching Instagram Reels, a feature meant to rival controversial social app TikTok. And the rest of the "FAAMNGs" - the group of Facebook, Apple (AAPL, 3.5%), Amazon.com (AMZN, 0.6%), Microsoft (
