Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) stock was trading higher by more than 8 percent early Friday morning. The company's first quarter report exceeded estimates and showed momentum in many of its business lines. Management said it will be raising its annual Amazon Prime membership fee from $99 to $119.

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) was trading higher by more than 7 percent in reaction to Thursday's first quarter top-and-bottom-line beat. The company also lifted its full year 2018 revenue guidance from $65.05 billion to $67.5 billion while its second quarter revenue guidance range of $15.8-$16.8 billion came in ahead of Wall Street's estimate of $15.6 billion.

Sprint Corp (NYSE: S) was trading higher by more than 7 percent. The stock moved higher after a Reuters report suggested ongoing merger talks with T-Mobile Us Inc (NASDAQ: TMUS) are proceeding and could even be completed "as early as next week." The report cautioned "there is no certainty that a deal will be reached."

Genprex Inc (NASDAQ: GNPX) was trading higher by more than 20 percent. The low-float small-cap clinical stage gene therapy company saw its stock rally nearly 150 percent from Monday through Thursday. Formal news hasn't been announced this week that would support a triple-digit percentage rally (including more than 200 percent at one point on Thursday) but the quiet period following its initial public offering will expire on May 8.

Splunk Inc (NASDAQ: SPLK) was trading higher by more than 2.5 percent amid some support from Wall Street. Wedbush said its conversations "support the view that SPLK’s market opportunity, competitive position, and execution on enterprise expansions can sustain the company's momentum for many quarters."
