Costco (COST) was a standout performer in a declining market, with its stock price rising by 2% to $505.65.

Yesterday was a very interesting day in the market. Tesla's stock dropped more than 9% due to a poor company performance report, which dragged down almost all automotive stocks. Ford (F) and GM's shares fell by 3%. Our robots, on the other hand, closed the day in the black. Tesla's shares, which the robots successfully shorted, provided particular assistance. Additionally, Costco's (COST) shares rose by 2% in the falling market and are present in almost all of our robots. It is worth noting the robot Swing-Trader-High-Volatility-Stocks-for-Active-Trading-TA-FA, which actively opened shorts and hedged long positions yesterday.
