Shares of Exxon Mobil Corp. gained nearly 1% after hours Thursday after Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. disclosed a stake in the oil major, while Nordstrom Inc. shares fell after the department-store chain's expenses shot up.
Among a sea of quarterly filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Berkshire said it had taken a 40 million stake in Exxon (XOM) during the quarter ended September 30. It cut down on its ConocoPhillips (COP) stake. Conoco shares slipped a bit.
Nordstrom shares lost 1.6% after sales growth was constrained by the absence of a key sales event and its overhead rose.
Applied Materials Inc. (AMAT) shares slipped 0.3% after the company swung to a fourth-quarter profit but it gave a cautious outlook.
Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) shares gained nearly 5%, an unusual after-hours move for the consumer staples company, after it said it was considering a spinoff of its health-care business.
FedEx Corp. (FDX) shares edged up on light volume. Funds managed by George Soros and John Paulson disclosed big stakes in the transport company.
Stocks closed higher in the regular session, lifting the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) and S&P 500 (SPX) to record closes. The Nasdaq Composite also edged higher but lagged the other indexes after Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO) fell 11%, its worst day since 2011.
