Among individual stocks, Global-E Online (GLBE) was a standout performer, up almost a quarter on the release of a strong quarterly update.
Let’s turn to some of the day’s standout losers, Sunnova (NYSE:NOVA) posted a double-digit percentage decline following the announcement of a convertible bond offering. Meanwhile, Tremor International (TRMR) tumbled more than 20% to hit a new 52-week low after the release of its quarterly update.

The announcement of a convertible bond triggered selling in Sunnova (NOVA). Shares in the residential solar company fell nearly 12% amid fears of potential dilution for current shareholders.
