As Wall Street digested more on the Trump election saga last night, shares in Healthcare Services Group (NASDAQ:HCSG) were on the up, after hours.

It was on the back of a second quarter earnings report, which scores of big name firms will be posting this week, and big profit rises should see the rally in US shares continue.

Healthcare Services shares added almost 4% to $48.45 as it told investors that revenue rose nearly 22% from the year before to $470.88mln and EPS (earnings per share)  beat consensus estimates too.

On the flip side, science and public research manufacturer Agilent Technologies Inc (NYSE:A) , a spin-off from Hewlett Packard, fell  a tad during extended trading.

Earlier in the week however, its "overweight" stock rating had been restated by Morgan Stanley following the acquisition of U.-based Cobalt Light Systems for £40mln

Cobalt Light Systems is a provider of instruments for the pharmaceutical industry, applied markets and public safety sectors.

Twitter Inc (NASDAQ:TWTR) was also in focus after hours, with share=s adding 0.21% as  the social media group named Intuit’s Ned Segal as its new finance chief.

Segal takes over for Anthony Noto, Twitter's chief operating officer (COO), who has been carrying out both roles since November.

 

Finally, shares of US energy giant NRG Energy  (NYSE:NRG) jumped 3.68% to $16.90 in extended trading after it announced that it would release the results of its business review to transform the company.
