Peter Schacknow

Take a look at some of the biggest movers in the premarket:
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) – Norwegian reported a first-quarter loss of 99 cents per share, wider than the 50 cents a share loss that analysts had projected. Revenue was in line with forecasts. The cruise line operator said it was well-positioned to withstand 18 months of voyage suspensions.
3M (MMM) – 3M said its sales fell 11% in April, with a surge in face mask demand being offset by declines for its other product lines. Health-care sales rose 5%, while transportation and electronics saw a 20% drop and safety and industrial sales fell 11%.
Cisco Systems (CSCO) – Cisco reported quarterly profit of 79 cents per share, beating consensus estimates by 10 cents a share. Revenue topped estimates as well. The networking equipment maker also gave an upbeat current-quarter forecast, as it benefits from an increase in remote work.
SmileDirectClub (SDC) – SmileDirectClub lost 28 cents per share for its latest quarter, wider than the 19 cents a share loss that Wall Street analysts were anticipating. The maker of teeth-straightening aligners saw its revenue miss estimates as well, and the company sees its kits businesses providing a larger percentage of revenue going forward compared to business in its SmileShops. Following the release of the quarterly report, Bank of America Securities cut its rating on the stock to “underperform” from “buy.”
Jack In The Box (JACK) – Jack In The Box came in 16 cents a share below estimates, with quarterly earnings of 50 cents per share. The restaurant chain’s revenue beat Street forecasts. Comparable sales were down 4.2%, and Jack In The Box also withdrew financial guidance as well as suspending its dividends and share buybacks.
Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) – Fiat Chrysler will not distribute its 2019 dividend that was due to be paid this year because of the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. Peugeot parent PSA Groupe is also suspending its dividend payout, and the two automakers said their merger plans are proceeding as scheduled.
DraftKings (DKNG) – Susquehanna Financial began coverage of DraftKings with a “positive” rating, noting that the online gambling site operator is the leader in a market that could grow to as much as $40 billion in the next 10 years.
Intelsat (I) – Intelsat filed for bankruptcy protection, in a move designed to allow the satellite operator to participate in an upcoming government airwaves auction. Intelsat has $14.5 billion in debt, and would have to spend more than $1 billion to participate due to the cost of moving existing customers off airwaves to be sold.
Tyson Foods (TSN) – Tyson cut prices for some of the beef it sells to supermarkets and restaurants by 20% to 30%. This comes after disruptions at meat plants led to a jump in the cost of meat.
Tesla (TSLA) – Tesla issued a warning to workers who choose to stay at home even after being ordered back to work, saying they could lose their unemployment benefits.
Starbucks (SBUX) – Starbucks wants landlords to lower rent for the next year, according to a letter from Chief Operating Officer Roz Brewer and reported by the Seattle Times. The letter cited the economic disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mastercard (MA) – Mastercard said it saw a slight rebound in credit card use during the two weeks ended May 7, due to loosening of social distancing rules in some areas as well as fiscal stimulus.
McCormick (MKC) – McCormick was upgraded to “outperform” from “neutral” at Credit Suisse, as more people cook at home and use the company’s spices and other products.
Allogene Therapeutics (ALLO) – Allogene released favorable data from a phase 1 study of its treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

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. 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
