Verizon (VZ) is up 2% on an upgrade at Deutsche Bank with a $56 price target.  The analyst expects a return to (normalized) service revenue growth for the first time since late 2014 with margin improvement.

This included making direct code changes to the Tesla Manufacturing Operating System under false usernames and exporting large amounts of highly sensitive Tesla data to unknown third parties. I wonder if it was China?
