Irvine-based hospitality REIT Sunstone Hotel Investors Inc. (NYSE: SHO) fell 3.2% to $9.45 a share for a market cap of a little more than $2 billion. Investors’ worries over reopening of the economy during the coronavirus pandemic pushed down travel and leisure stocks on the S&P 500.


Artificial intelligence company Veritone Inc. (Nasdaq: VERI) of Costa Mesa rose 7.2% to $13.48 per share for a market cap of $361.3 million. Zacks Investment Research last week called Veritone one of its “top picks” with an expected earnings growth rate of 42.8% for the current year. The stock has more than quintupled in value since the start of 2020.
