Stocks finished lower Thursday after two apparent suicide bombings in Afghanistan and with investors hoping a Federal Reserve symposium sheds some light on the central bank's plans for tapering stimulus.

Here are some of the big movers in the stock market on Thursday:

1. Coty | Increase 15%

Coty  (COTY) - Get Coty Inc. Class A Report shares surged as the seller of Burberry and Gucci fragrances and lipstick and Cover Girl makeup missed Wall Street's fourth-quarter earnings expectations. The company beat revenue estimates due in part to surging sales in the U.S. and China.

2. Lordstown Motors | Increase 18%

Shares of Lordstown Motors  (RIDE) - Get Lordstown Motors Corp. Class A Report soared the most in 10 months after the electric-car maker named former Icahn Enterprises boss Daniel Ninivaggi as its new CEO. Ninivaggi succeeds Steve Burns, who along with Chief Financial Officer Julio Rodriguez resigned in early July.

3. Salesforce | Increase 2.7%
