Slow Start. Stocks weren’t doing much Thursday morning, with Dow Jones Industrial Average futures near the break-even line while both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite were inching up 0.1% ahead of the open. Downbeat data and fresh Brexit concerns weighed on global stocks, leading some earlier gains to fizzle.  

Here are five stocks making moves this morning:

Bed Bath & Beyond (ticker: BBBY) was down 6.2% to $9.40 after it reported mixed results for its fiscal second quarter.

Constellation Brands (STZ) fell 3.3% to $200 despite a better-than-expected fiscal second quarter.

Okta (OKTA) gained 1.5% to $104.55 after SunTrust Robinson Humphrey upgraded it to Buy.

PepsiCo (PEP) was up 2.3% to $136.98. The company reported upbeat third-quarter results and reaffirmed its financial guidance.

Tesla (TSLA) fell 4.9% to $231.11. The electric-car company disclosed disappointing third-quarter figures on deliveries on Wednesday.
