Exelon – The nuclear power producer's shares rose more than 1% in after-hours trading after activist investor Keith Meister classified the stock as an investment idea. Meister said during a presentation that Exelon had "significant" upside potential.

Nvidia – Nvidia shares fell 0.7% after a New Street Research analyst downgraded the chip maker to sell from neutral. The analyst pointed to a possible slowdown in PC consumer spending as well as "motherboard manufacturers and GPU board partners cutting orders".

Zoom Video – Zoom Up 0.5% Mizuho launched coverage on the stock with a buy rating and a target price of $ 550.
