Check out the companies making headlines midday Tuesday:
Micron, Qualcomm, Broadcom – Chip stocks staged a comeback after the U.S. granted a 90-day license for mobile phone companies and internet providers to work with Huawei. The temporary relief prompted Google to reverse its decision to cut ties with the Chinese telecom giant. The semiconductor sector took a hit Monday on fears chipmakers would lose a big customer as Huawei purchases about $20 billion U.S. chips a year. Micron rose more than 2% Tuesday while Qualcomm and Broadcom closed 1.5% and 1% higher, respectively.
Kohl's — The retailer's stock fell 12.4% after reporting weaker than-expected earnings. Kohl's reported earnings per share of 61 cents, 7 cents below a Refinitiv estimate. Same-store sales, a key metric for retailers, dropped 3.4% in the first quarter, far more than expected.
J.C. Penney — J.C. Penney posted a wider-than-expected quarterly loss, sending its shares down 7.4%. The company posted a loss of 46 cents a share. Analysts polled by Refinitiv expected a loss of 38 cents per share. Revenue also disappointed.

Monro — The auto service company's stock rose 4.1% after hiking its dividend and announcing it expanded a partnership with Amazon. Those announcements overshadowed in-line quarterly earnings and weaker-than-expected revenue.

Shares recovered and were only down slightly.
TripAdvisor — Shares of TripAdvisor climbed 1.8% after an analyst at Guggenheim upgraded them to neutral from sell, noting the worst is probably over for the travel site.
