Furthermore, General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) is also expected to face inflationary pressures; these factors can place the full-year EPS guidance at risk. Although the company reiterated the outlook provided in January under the current global trend, General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) is anticipated to hit the lower end of the range.

Universal Health Services, Inc. (NYSE:UHS) reported an adjusted EPS of $2.15, missing the analysts’ forecast of $2.47. Universal Health Services, Inc. (NYSE:UHS) was unable to meet the bottom line forecast as it faced significant pressure due to rising labor costs.

7. Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:WBD) has crashed 4.74% as of 12:10 PM ET after the company reported that it anticipates lower than expected profits this year due to a “messy” combination of assets following the closure of the merger between WarnerMedia and Discovery on April 8. The outcome of “unexpected projects” and disappointing operating profit and cash flow results for Q1 2022 was a major reason that led to the new guidance. One of the “unexpected projects” could be CNN+ as the CEO David Zaslav decided to close the streaming service only after a month of its launch. Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:WBD) stock is currently trading at its lowest level since April 8.
Southeastern Asset Management is the leading investor in Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:WBD), with a stake worth over $285.9 million as of Q4 2021.
6. NIO Inc. (NYSE:NIO) has descended 4.94% as of 12:10 PM ET after the production and demand of EVs have come under pressure due to concerns related to COVID-19 lockdowns. According to industry experts, the sale of passenger cars declined by 11% YoY during March 2022, and the sale is expected to take a dip of 32% YoY during April. The extended lockdowns are causing supply chain concerns and also putting a dent in demand. Car manufacturing hubs like Guangdong, Jilin, and Shanghai have faced strict lockdowns, and these regions were responsible for one-third of the total car production in 2021.
According to Insider Monkey’s proprietary data, NIO Inc. (NYSE:NIO) was held by 30 hedge funds at the end of Q4 2021. ARK Investment Management has a stake worth over $8 million in NIO Inc. (NYSE:NIO) as of Q1 2022.
