Zoom reports big 3Q gains, but slowing growth sinks stock

SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP) — Zoom’s videoconferencing service remains a fixture in pandemic life, but its breakneck growth is showing signs of tapering off as investors debate whether the company will be able to build upon its recent success after a vaccine enables people to intermingle again.

Target Stock Gains To Continue Post Q3 Results?

Target (NYSE: TGT) is scheduled to report its fiscal third-quarter results on Wednesday, November 18.
