FuboTV — Shares of FuboTV gained 9.7% following the release of the company's first-quarter results. FuboTV reported a loss of 59 cents per share, which was not comparable to estimates. The company made $119.7 million in revenue, topping a Refinitiv forecast of $103.9 million.

Vizio also said Smart TV shipments came in at 1.5 million, below a FactSet estimate of 1.65 million.
