5 Biggest Movers 

Microvast Holdings, Inc. (MVST) was the biggest gainer in pre-market trading, jumping around 16% at last watch. The battery manufacturer that makes lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles and energy storage systems, and has no fundamental news to explain the trading frenzy. 

Another gainer, Nikola Corporation (NKLA), an American manufacturer of heavy-duty commercial battery-electric vehicles, fuel-cell electric vehicles, and energy solutions, rose in pre-market trading, recording gains of 8.75% at the time of writing. Positive sentiment followed the company’s revelation of the commencement of production of the battery-powered electric commercial semitruck, the Tre, at its factory in Coolidge, Arizona. 

Dave Inc. (DAVE) climbed 9.5% in the pre-market session at the time of writing. The rise followed an 8.5% drop in price at Wednesday’s close. Price volatility seems to have followed the company’s recent announcement of a strategic partnership and a $100 million investment plan to add cryptocurrency to its fintech platform. 

China-based Trip.com Group Limited (TCOM) climbed 7.2% in pre-market trading at the time of writing. This surge followed the company’s strong fourth-quarter 2021 and full-year 2021 results.

The upward movement followed a 2.7% rise in price at Wednesday’s close.
