Lyft — Lyft priced its initial public offering at $72 per share, at the high end of the expected range, after that range was raised earlier in the week. The shares will begin trading on the Nasdaq this morning.

Boeing — Boeing is facing its first lawsuit over the Ethiopian Airlines crash of a Boeing 737 MAX jet. It was filed in Chicago by the family of Jackson Musoni of Rwanda, one of the crash victims.

DowDupont — DowDupont cut its sales forecast for its first quarter, with the chemical maker citing the impact of floods in the Midwest on its agriculture business as well as weakness in its packaging and specialty plastics units.
Spotify — Spotify was rated "underperform" in new coverage at Credit Suisse, which said that consensus long-term expectations for the music streaming service are too high despite its own forecast of strong subscriber and revenue growth.
Comcast — RBC Capital downgraded the NBCUniversal and CNBC parent to "sector perform" from "outperform," saying it is taking a more cautious view on cable sector fundamentals and lowering its expectations for broadband and video subscriber numbers.
