Take a look at some of Friday's midday movers:

Financials were on track to being the best performing sector in May. Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley traded up to their highest levels in over two years.

Netflix gained following news that it will join the Nasdaq 100 index beginning June 6.

Monsanto moved lower again after its 10-day moving average moved below its 30-day moving average Thursday. U.S. officials are "pursuing many avenues" of how unapproved genetically modified wheat developed by Monsanto may have shown up in an Oregon field.


Pall was the worst performer on the S&P 500 after the company posted quarterly earnings that slid 7.4 percent and lowered the higher end of its full-year guidance. Shares of Pall were cut to "sell" from "hold" by S&P Capital IQ.

Guess popped despite posting a drop in quarterly profits on lower sales in North America and Europe. The retailer maintained its earnings guidance for fiscal 2014 of between $1.70 a share and $1.90 a share.

Health Management Associates hit a 52-week high. Earlier this week, the hospital operator said that its CEO Gary Newsome would retire.

TripAdvisor, Precision Castparts and Western Digital were among S&P 500 companies that recently hit all-time highs.
