Check out the companies making headlines midday Wednesday:
FedEx, UPS —Shares of FedEx and UPS fell 1.3 percent and 1.7 percent, respectively, after The Wall Street Journal reported that Amazon is trying to poach shippers from the two companies by offering lower fuel surcharges and fees.
United Technologies — Shares of United Technologies jumped 5.4 percent after the company reported adjusted earnings of $1.95 a share, easily topping an estimate of $1.53. The company's revenue also got a boost from its acquisition of Rockwell Collins.
Procter & Gamble — The company's stock rose 4.9 percent after the release of stronger-than-expected quarterly earnings. Procter & Gamble said its organic sales grew by 4 percent, also surpassing estimates.
Waters Corp. — Shares of the laboratory instrument maker jumped 12.7 percent and posted their best day since April 28, 2009. Waters reported a quarterly profit that topped analyst expectations. Its guidance for the current quarter was also better than expected.

Tesla — The electric car maker's stock dropped 3.8 percent after RBC Capital Markets downgraded the stock to sell. Analysts at the bank said Tesla needs to give clearer long-term guidance. That downgrade pushed the number of sell ratings above the buys among Wall Street analysts.
