Check out the companies making headlines in midday trading Tuesday.
IBM – Shares of IBM slipped 5.25% after the tech company warned of a potential $3.5 billion hit from a strong U.S. dollar. That warning overshadowed better-than-expected earnings and revenue for the previous quarter.
Boeing – Shares of the aerospace giant rose 5.69%, continuing an upward trend for the stock, after Boeing announced several deals for plane orders. The deals include an order for five 787 Dreamliners from AerCap and orders for 737 Max jets from Aviation Capital Group and 777 Partners. Shares of Boeing are up more than 10% in July.

The legislation would give domestic chip makers $52 billion in government subsidies. Marvell Technology rose 7.12%, ASML Holding gained 5.24%, Applied Materials gained 5.24% and Advanced Micro Devices increased 5.46%.
