A number of other tech stocks fell, including Facebook (FB) - Get Free Report by 5.6% and Twitter (TWTR) - Get Free Report by 4.2%.
2. Beyond Meat BYND | Down 14%

3. Intel INTC | Down 12%
Intel reported third-quarter earnings that topped expectations and weaker-than-expected sales.
4. Moderna MRNA | Down 4.6%
Papadakis said investors in the "concept stock" had already factored in Moderna's potential to disrupt dynamics in the viral infectious disease arena.
"Whilst execution has not been lacking, the strategic discipline to stay focused on mRNA is a virtue," he told investors.
"All that looks more than generously reflected in a valuation that looks detached from a problematic assessment of reality,” he wrote in a note.
"Moderna is a concept company that has ridden a wave of disruptive innovation, pandemic serendipity and management vision (plus a little public funding) to become a concept stock,” Papadakis added.
Deutsche Bank set a price target of $225 on the stock.
5. Honeywell HON | Down 2.5%
Shares of Honeywell (HON) - Get Free Report ticked lower after the company cut its full-year revenue guidance. The technolog company also reported quarterly revenue below analysts’ expectations for the third quarter. Earnings, however, topped forecasts.
