Salesforce soars, HP CEO exits, Disney set to launch ‘Star Wars’ hotel

Here are some of the companies Yahoo Finance is watching today.

Salesforce (CRM) stock is soaring after second quarter earnings beat estimates. Revenue was up 22% from a year earlier, and the company saw double digit growth with their two biggest products: Sales Cloud and Service Cloud. And if you were looking for a recession, you didn't get a whiff of one from Salesforce founder Marc Benioff on the earnings call.

HP (HPQ) chief executive Dion Weisler says he's leaving the company for family health reasons. A source tells Yahoo Finance that Weisler is headed to Australia to handle the situation. Weisler took the company's top spot in 2015. He'll work with his successor, HP veteran Enrique Lores, through January 2020 to aid the transition.

Target (TGT) is celebrating two more milestones fresh off its stock hitting a record high. It officially opened its 100th small store, which take aim at CVS and Walgreens. Target has also completed its 500th store remodel.

DoorDash is responding to the outcry from customers over skimming delivery workers’ tips and pushing them into their base pay. Doordash says its new compensation plan will increase base pay and promises that tips will be added in addition to the higher base pay regardless of promotions.

Disney (DIS) will soon have some guests dreaming in a galaxy far-far away. Walt Disney World is currently building a brand new “Star Wars” themed hotel, so you too can sleep in a first class cabin aboard an intergalactic ship. Dubbed the "Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser" - it will be a multi-day experience and will be connected to a Star Wars land that is opening next week.
