Altice USA – Altice CEO Dexter Goei was given the additional title of CEO of the French parent company, Altice NV. Michael Combes resigned as CEO after only a little more than a year on the job, following a weak earnings report that sent the stock spiraling lower.

Nvidia – Nvidia beat estimates by 39 cents a share, with adjusted quarterly profit of $1.33 per share. The graphics chipmaker's revenue also beat forecasts. Strong demand for gaming and data center chips helped drive Nvidia's results.
