Market Insider | Biggest Moves Premarket: Stocks making the biggest moves in the premarket: Walmart, Home Depot, Kohl's, Moderna & more

Peter Schacknow

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

Walmart (WMT) – The retail giant reported quarterly profit of $1.18 per share, 6 cents a share above estimates. Revenue came in above forecasts as well. Same-store sales were up 10%, compared to a consensus estimate of 7.2%. Walmart withdrew its 2020 guidance due to virus-related uncertainty and also announced it would discontinue the brand.
Home Depot (HD) – The home improvement retailer earned $2.08 per share for the first quarter, below the consensus estimate of $2.27 a share. Revenue and comparable-store sales beat Street forecasts, but the bottom line was weighed down by pandemic-related expenses. Home Depot also suspended its full-year outlook.
Kohl's (KSS) – The retailer lost $3.20 per share for the first quarter, wider than the loss of $1.80 per share that analysts were expecting. Kohl's also declined to provide comparable-store sales figures, citing closures. The company said it took steps to improve its liquidity and ended the quarter with $2 billion in cash.
Advance Auto Parts (AAP) – The auto parts seller earned 91 cents per share for the first quarter, missing the $1.73 a share consensus estimate. Revenue was also below forecasts, with comparable-store sales falling a greater-than-expected 9.3%.
Moderna (MRNA) – Moderna priced a secondary stock offering of 17.6 million common shares at $76 per share, while granting the underwriters an option to buy up to 2.64 million additional shares at the same price. The biotech firm's stock had surged 20% Monday on positive vaccine study results, closing at $80.
Walt Disney (DIS) – Disney's top streaming executive, Kevin Mayer, is leaving to become CEO at popular video app TikTok. Mayer had led the successful launch of the Disney+ streaming service in late 2019, and his departure is cited among the reasons for a downgrade of the stock to "hold" from "buy" at Loop Capital.
Southwest Airlines (LUV) – In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, the airline said it sees May operating revenue down 85% to 90% from a year ago, with June operating revenue down 80% to 85%. Southwest said it is seeing a modest improvement in passenger demand and bookings.
J.C. Penney (JCP) – (AMZN) is said to be eyeing all or part of the bankrupt retailer, according to a Women's Wear Daily report.
Baidu (BIDU) – Baidu reported better-than-expected earnings and revenue for the first quarter, while the Chinese search engine giant also gave an upbeat current-quarter revenue forecast as China-based businesses reopen after strict lockdowns.
T-Mobile US (TMUS) – Japan's Softbank will sell a large portion of its stake in the wireless carrier through a secondary stock offering, according to sources who spoke to CNBC's David Faber. Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs will underwrite the offering.
Sony (SNE) – Sony will take full control of its publicly listed financial arm, Sony Financial Holdings, through a $3.7 billion tender offer.
Tesla (TSLA) – The automaker's car registrations in China fell 64% in April compared to March, according to figures from auto consulting firm LMC Automotive.
Delta Air Lines (DAL) – Delta will keep jets no more than 60% full through at least July, according to sources who spoke to Reuters. Delta had said yesterday that it would cap first class seating at 50% and main cabin at 60% through June 30. (AMZN) – Amazon had listings for 36,000 job openings at the end of April, 19% more than a year earlier, according to a review done by analysts at Citi. At the same time, job listings at Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Netflix (NFLX) fell from a year earlier.
Carvana (CVNA) – The automotive e-commerce company announced a 5 million share offering of its class A common stock, planning to use proceeds for general corporate purposes.

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
