Thinking About Buying Stock In Roku, Disney, Gevo Or Palantir?

One of the most common questions traders have about stocks is “Why Is It Moving?”

That’s why Benzinga created the Why Is It Moving, or WIIM, feature in Benzinga Pro. WIIMs are a one-sentence description as to why that stock is moving. 

Here’s the latest news behind Roku, Disney, Gevo and Palantir.

Shares of Roku Inc (NASDAQ: ROKU) are trading higher after the company reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter sales results and issued sales guidance above estimates.

According to a report by The Guardian, all Disney+ account holders will be prompted to install a two-step parental control system involving age ratings on individual profiles and pin protection.

Disney's confirmed the Star lineup will make it to other regions over time, but there’s no word yet when the company will bring the Stars subscription package to the U.S.
