Just a few months after the first photos of the F-35 testing the B61-12 nuclear bomb in 2019 for the F-35A Dual Capable Aircraft (DCA) program were released, the Sandia National Laboratories announced that the F-35 dropped for the first time an inert B61-12 nuclear bomb from its internal bomb bay during supersonic flight.

Workday Drops Despite Q3 Beat: What Wall Street Is Saying

Shares of accounting software maker Workday  (WDAY) – Get Report dropped premarket Friday following its third quarter earnings release despite topping earnings and revenue estimates as the company also issued weak guidance for 2021. 

The company said it expects software demand to continue to come under pressure in 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Shares fell 3.5% to $222.80 in premarket trading Friday.

Here’s what Wall Street is saying about Workday:

Barclays (Equal Weight rating maintained, PT lowered to $234 from $238)

The big debates for investors post a healthy Q3 will be how conservative guidance is, especially around Q4 subscription backlog growth (14-16% YoY vs 20% plus so far this year), and how this year’s bookings numbers translate into next year’s subscription revenue. We believe that there was a fair amount of investor excitement going into earnings that a healthy Q3 would translate into positive estimate revisions

Pharmacy stocks fell sharply on Tuesday after Amazon launched its new Pharmacy offering, which includes online ordering and delivery for prescription drugs.

Dow Jones Industrial average member Walgreens Boots Alliance dropped more than 11% in premarket trading. CVS Health shares lost over 8%. Shares of Rite Aid fell 12.8%, while GoodRx stock also declined.

Amazon Pharmacy is available in 45 states and accepts most forms of insurance. Amazon Prime members can also receive discounts on generic and name-brand drugs when paying without insurance, the company said.

China smartphone market drops 14% in Q3 under soft demand, delayed product availability

Smartphone shipments in China were down 14.3 percent year-on-year to 84.8 million in the third quarter, according to data from IDC. This drop was the result of multiple factors, including soft demand, Huawei’s supply constraints and delayed flagship launches from both Huawei and Apple. 

Huawei stayed ahead of its rivals even if it recorded a 15.5 percent drop in shipped units to 35.1 million. It took a market share of 41.4 percent, slightly down from 42 percent a year earlier. Huawei cautiously managed its shipments across its product lineups and lowered the production of some popular models like the Mate 30 series. Its channel management and prioritisation also resulted in a supply shortage in the lower-tier cities, delaying purchases from loyal customers, the market researcher said. 

Xiaomi was the only manufacturer in the top 5 that reported an increase in shipments in the quarter, as its Redmi 9 and K30
