    MoviePass hits 1.5 million subscribers, shares of majority owner jump 9%

    Shares of MoviePass majority owner Helios & Matheson Analytics Inc. gained more than 9% in premarket trade on Tuesday after the subscription movie ticket platform said on Twitter it had reached 1.5 million paid subscribers. MoviePass has been growing rapidly, and demand for the service seems to still be high. In late December, the $10-a-month service allowing members to see a movie a day in cinemas said it had hit the 1 million subscriber mark. It took Netflix, which began by mailing out DVDs, three years to reach 1 million subscribers. MoviePass Chief Executive Mitch Lowe has said the demand was more than the company expected. MoviePass had just 20,000 subscribers before dropping the price of its subscription to $10 from as much as $50 back in August. People who have signed up for the service have criticized the company for not sending them the cards necessary to use the service. Shares of Helios & Matheson have gained nearly 116% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 index is up more than 21% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up more than 27%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Uber names new COO

    Uber Technologies Inc.'s long search for a chief operating officer has come to an end. Barney Harford, the former CEO of Orbitz, will take on the Uber COO job, he said on Twitter Wednesday. Harford worked at Expedia with Uber's new CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, after Expedia Inc. acquired Orbitz in 2015. He has been working as a senior advisor at Uber since October, according to Bloomberg. Uber is trying to change up its corporate culture after a series of scandals. Founder Travis Kalanick was ousted from the CEO job earlier this year. Uber was dealt a disappointing blow earlier Wednesday after European regulators deemed the company a transit service, which could open the firm up to more regulations.
