Check out the companies making headlines in midday trading.

First Republic — Shares of the regional bank fell by 50% after sources told CNBC‘s David Faber that the most likely outcome for First Republic is to be taken into receivership by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporate. However, there is still hope for a rescue deal to occur before the regulator would step in, the sources said.

Snap — The Snapchat parent company cratered about 18% after missing revenue expectations for the recent quarter. Snap’s revenue fell 6% from a year ago.

Amazon — The company fell 3.8% as investors contend with concerns over the future of Amazon’s cloud business. The company beat expectations on both adjusted earnings per share and revenue on Thursday.

Intel — Intel shares rose more than 4% even after the company reported its largest quarterly loss on record and a 133% reduction year over year. Even so, Intel reported a smaller-than-expected loss per share and better-than-expected revenue. Benchmark upgraded the chipmaker, saying the worst is priced into shares.

Pinterest — Pinterest’s stock plunged more than 17% after sharing disappointing second-quarter guidance. The move in shares came despite the image-sharing company’s beat on the top and bottom lines.

Analysts had estimated $1.02 earnings per share on revenues of $718 million, according to Refinitiv data.

Chevron — The energy stock rose 0.8% after the company beat expectations for first-quarter earnings and revenue. The strong results were boosted by its refining business, which helped offset a decline in oil and gas production amid a slide in oil prices.

Its revenue of $86.56 billion also came in above the $85.41 billion expected.
