Peter Schacknow



Take a look at some of the biggest movers in the premarket:

Cardinal Health (CAH) – The drug distributor reported quarterly earnings of $1.62 per share, beating the consensus estimate of $1.43 a share. Revenue also beat forecasts. Its businesses reported increased volume related to the Covid-19 pandemic, but it does expect a significant net negative impact to current-quarter results.
Marriott (MAR) – The hotel operator earned 26 cents per share for the first quarter, well below the consensus estimate of 80 cents a share. Revenue topped estimates. Marriott said business was improving in greater China, and stabilizing in the rest of the world although at extremely low levels.
Under Armour (UAA) – Under Armour lost 34 cents per share for the first quarter, wider than the 19 cents a share loss that Wall Street was expecting. Revenue was also below forecasts, with overall sales falling about 23% amid virus-related store closures.
AutoNation (AN) – The car retailer posted better-than-expected revenue for its latest quarter, even as it took $315 million in non-cash impairment charges due to the pandemic. AutoNation said sales strengthened during the final 10 days of April.
United Airlines (UAL) – United decided not to proceed with a $2.25 billion debt offering, without giving a reason. The airline had planned to use the proceeds to pay off a $2 billion loan that it had taken in March.
Sony (SNE) – Sony suspended its mainland China PlayStation online store, saying the temporary shutdown was for a system security upgrade. It did not specify how long the suspension would last.
Chesapeake Energy (CHK) – Chesapeake Energy is advancing $25 million in incentive pay to its executives, ahead of a planned bankruptcy filing. The energy producer said in a regulatory filing that traditional metrics would not be effective in “incentivizing the company’s workforce.”
Intel (INTC), Taiwan Semiconductor (TSM) – The chip makers are in talks with the Trump administration about building new chip factories in the U.S., according to The Wall Street Journal, amid growing concerns about the reliability of Asia-based supply chains.
Tesla (TSLA) – Tesla sued to be allowed to reopen its California factory, and subsequently said it had “begun the process of resuming operations.” The suit came after CEO Elon Musk threatened to pull the automaker out of California, criticizing government orders that businesses remain closed.
Quidel (QDEL) – Quidel received emergency Food and Drug Administration approval to distribute a new type of Covid-19 antigen test designed for rapid detection of the virus that causes the disease.
Pfizer (PFE) – Pfizer said it is in talks with contractors to outsource more drug production, to allow it to focus on producing its experimental vaccine for Covid-19 should it prove safe and effective.
Potbelly (PBPB) – Potbelly said it could not meet a May 8 deadline to file its quarterly report, due to the closure of the sandwich chain’s headquarters and staff cuts. It said it should be able to file the report no later than June 22.
Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) – Chipotle secured a new $600 million revolving credit line, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing. The restaurant chain had $909 million in liquidity and no debt as of March 31.
Waste Management (WM) – The nation’s largest trash hauler is seeking higher fees for home trash pickup, due to a surge in volume following the implementation of lockdowns that are keeping people at home. CFO Devina Rankin told The Wall Street Journal that home residential trash volume has increased by 15% to 25% since the lockdown began.
AMC Entertainment (AMC) – Amazon.com (AMZN) is mulling a possible purchase of the movie theater operator, according to a report published by the UK’s Mail newspaper. The report said it is not clear whether talks between the parties are still going on.

Analysis | The Cybersecurity 202: How the shutdown could make it harder for the government to retain cybersecurity talent

By Joseph Marks 13-17 minutes THE KEY President Trump delivers an address about border security amid a partial government shutdown on Jan. 8. (Carolyn Kaster/AP) The partial government shutdown that's now in its 18th day is putting key cyber policy priorities on hold and leaving vital operations to a bare bones staff. But the far greater long-term danger may be the blow to government cyber defenders' morale, former officials warn. With the prospect of better pay and greater job security in the private sector, more government cyber operators are likely to decamp to industry, those former officials tell me, and the smartest cybersecurity graduates will look to industry rather than government to hone their skills. That’s especially dangerous, they say, considering the government’s struggle to recruit and retain skilled workers amid a nationwide shortage of cybersecurity talent. About 20 percent of staffers are furloughed at the De

Democrats call for investigation into Trump’s iPhone use after a report that China is listening:Analysis | The Daily 202 I The Washington Post.

washingtonpost.com By James Hohmann _________________________________________________________________________________ President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping visit the Great Hall of the People in Beijing last November. (Andrew Harnik/AP) With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve THE BIG IDEA: If Democrats win the House in two weeks, it’s a safe bet that one of the oversight hearings they schedule for early next year would focus on President Trump’s use of unsecured cellphones. The matter would not likely be pursued with anywhere near the gusto that congressional Republicans investigated Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. Leaders of the minority party have higher priorities . But Democratic lawmakers made clear Thursday morning that they will not ignore a New York Times report that Trump has refused to stop using iPhones in the White House, despite repeated warnings from U.S. intelligence offici
