Market Movers Today: VF Corp (VFC), MuleSoft (MULE), United States Steel Corporation (X), Apricus Biosciences Inc (APRI), and More

VF Corp (NYSE:VFC) (CNBC)
The parent company of The North Face and Vans, VF Corp., on Friday reported earnings and sales that fell short of analysts’ expectations. It also revealed plans to sell its Nautica business. Though the news wasn’t taken lightly on Wall Street, CEO Steve Rendle, who’s been at the helm of the North Carolina-based house of brands for about a year now, told CNBC it’s all part of VF’s goal to become a more consumer-facing business and focus on the best labels. VF also owns Timberland, Wrangler and Lee, among a handful of other apparel and footwear banners. VF’s shares dropped more than 8 percent Friday afternoon, having climbed more than 50 percent from a year ago.

Mulesoft Inc (NYSE:MULE) (The Motley Fool)
What happened: Shares of information technology company MuleSoft (NYSE:MULE) climbed as much as 16.7% on Friday. The stock’s gain follows MuleSoft’s fourth-quarter earnings release. Mulesoft shares are up 15.2% at the time of this writing. Optimism toward the stock on Friday likely reflects the company’s higher-than-expected fourth-quarter revenue, as well management’s promising outlook for 2018. “Robust market demand and strong sales execution enabled us to deliver fourth quarter and fiscal 2017 revenue well ahead of expectations,” said MuleSoft CEO Greg Schott about the results.
