Autonomous driving tech company Mobileye led the charge as artificial intelligence stocks rallied to wrap up the week on a high. The Israeli company surged 10.6% to 45.14, thereby reversing its decline following the release of its first-quarter earnings.
Mobileye’s rise comes after the company projected its SuperVision driver assist system to earn a revenue of $3.2 billion over the next five years. Earlier this month, Porsche announced that it would begin incorporating SuperVision into its automated driver assistance.
Arista Networks followed in Mobileye’s footsteps, rising 9.1% to 170.35, thereby building on Thursday’s 10.6% gain. The company saw a rise in investor optimism surrounding its Arista Switching cloud infrastructure following its rise in revenue.
Outside of AI stocks, pharmaceuticals also fared well, with McKesson remaining steady after raising its long-run growth target for its pharma division from 4% to 5%-7%. Work management software Smartsheet gained 3.7% following strong quarterly earnings from rival Monday.com.
