Earlier, Office Depot and food-delivery companies got a boost, which they detailed Wednesday in their quarterly results.
Earnings reported after the bell Wednesday:
Lyft Inc.: The ride-hailing business, which cut about 17% of its staff last week in response to the coronavirus pandemic, said it will aggressively pursue cost cuts as it reported first-quarter earnings that give a glimpse into the fallout from the drop in ridership it has seen during the health crisis.
MetLife Inc.: Amid coronavirus-related restrictions, the insurer pointed to a challenging face-to-face global sales environment with sales expected to decline across most segments, and said it would further cut costs to mitigate top-line pressure.
PayPal Holdings Inc.: The fintech company said the Covid-19 pandemic impacted volumes and travel and events revenue in March, and the company increased its credit loss reserves to account for a change in economic projections.
T-Mobile US Inc.: The carrier said it expects the coronavirus pandemic to weigh on its financial performance through at least the end of the year, joining rival carriers in telling investors the crisis had clouded its outlook.
Wynn Resorts Ltd.: The Las Vegas-based hotel and casino operator reported a net loss and a sharp drop in revenue, the latest casino operator to reveal how coronavirus shutdowns are hurting the gambling industry.
Upwork Inc.: The global freelancing platform said losses widened in the fiscal first quarter as sales rose in part because of coronavirus measures accelerating the need for remote work.
Earnings reported earlier Wednesday:
