Shipping giant FedEx and motorhome maker Winnebago were also notable. FedEx shares fell over 2% following weaker-than-expected revenue for the most recent quarter last week. Despite beating earnings expectations, Winnebago’s shares slid 1% as it missed Q3 revenue estimates​​.

Looking more closely at FedEx’s performance, the company posted a significant weakness in its Express unit. Despite aggressive cost-cutting measures and higher package delivery rates, the company’s sales and profit fell in Q2 2023 compared to the year-ago period.
