Market Movers Today: Etsy Inc (ETSY), Frontier Communications Corp (FTR), Stratasys Ltd (SSYS), PHH Corporation (PHH), and More

Etsy Inc (NASDAQ:ETSY) (Fortune)
Etsy’s stock price jumped as much as 24% in midday trading on Wednesday, and has now more than doubled from a year ago, thanks to Silverman’s turnaround strategy that got the company out of Amazon’s long shadow. Silverman, a veteran of eBay’s (EBAY, +0.12%) Shopping.com site, has emphasized simple improvements like adding “best seller” badges and site-wide sales for Labor Day and Cyber Monday last year, as well as deeper changes that improved customer searches using artificial intelligence and machine learning with a program Etsy calls “Context Specific Search ranking.”

Frontier Communications Corp (NASDAQ:FTR) (MarketWatch)
Shares of Frontier Communications Corp. FTR, -23.86% tumbled 23% in active premarket trade Wednesday, enough to pace the decliners ahead of the open, after the communications services company suspended its dividend to make resources available to pay down debt.
