Market Insider | Biggest Moves Premarket: Stocks making the biggest moves in the premarket: Eli Lilly, Coty, Amazon, Zynga, Delta & more

Peter Schacknow

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

Eli Lilly (LLY) – The drugmaker began testing a Covid-19 experimental treatment derived from the blood of a survivor of the disease. It is the first study involving this type of drug, and comes about a month earlier than expected and ahead of rival Regeneron (REGN), which expects to begin a similar study this month.
Coty (COTY) – Coty named chairman Peter Harf as CEO, with Harf becoming the cosmetics maker’s fourth CEO in less than four years. The announcement comes as Coty and KKR (KKR) sign a definitive agreement to spin Coty’s haircare brands into a separate company that will be 60% owned by KKR and 40% by Coty, finalizing a deal first announced last month. (AMZN) – Morgan Stanley raised its price target for Amazon to $2,800 from $2,600, saying it expects faster forward growth for Amazon even if overall consumer spending weakens. The firm has raised earnings estimates for Amazon while maintaining an “overweight” rating.
Zynga (ZNGA) – Zynga announced the acquisition of Turkey-based mobile game producer Peak for $1.8 billion in cash and stock. Peak is the maker of the popular Toy Blast and Toon Blast mobile games. Separately, Zynga raised guidance for the current quarter and full year, not including any possible contribution from the Peak deal.
Embraer (ERJ) – The Brazilian jet maker reported a quarterly loss of 57 cents per share, wider than the 33 cents a share loss anticipated by analysts. Revenue also came in below forecasts, and Embraer also said its financial and deliveries guidance for 2020 remains suspended due to Covid-19 related uncertainty.
Edwards Lifesciences (EW) – The medical technology company begins post-split trading today, following a 3-for-1 stock split declared earlier this month that saw new shares distributed Friday.
Caesar’s Entertainment (CZR) – Caesar’s plans to reopen its Harrah’s Las Vegas casino this coming Friday, with initial customer demand on the Las Vegas strip following casino reopenings much stronger than expected.
Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN) – These casino stocks could see some stock impact today following news that gambling revenue in Macau fell 93.2% in May compared to a year earlier, amid coronavirus-related restrictions.
Delta Air Lines (DAL) – Delta said it is working with its pilots union to avoid furloughs of about 2,300 pilots, as it tries to match pilot staffing with reduced demand for the summer.
KKR (KKR) – KKR is partnering with fellow private-equity firms Cinven and Providence in a friendly $3.3 billion takeover bid for Spanish telecom company MasMovil.
Alphabet (GOOGL) – Alphabet’s Google unit has postponed the unveiling of its new Android 11 mobile operating system. It had been scheduled for Wednesday, but amid the coronavirus outbreak and protests across the nation, Google said “now is not the time to celebrate.”
Energy Transfer (ET) – Energy Transfer will begin cutting about 6% of its workforce this week, according to a recorded message to employees of the pipeline operator heard by Reuters. The move comes amid sinking oil and gas prices and a drop in business for companies like Energy Transfer.
Zoom Video Communications (ZM) – Zoom will begin rolling out stronger encryption to prevent so-called “Zoombombing” by uninvited guests to conferences. Reuters reports, however, that the move will only apply to paying Zoom accounts and not to the company’s popular free accounts.
United Airlines (UAL) – United will cut 13 of its officer positions as part of a restructuring. It also said it will add some international flights back to its network in July.
Keurig Dr Pepper (KDP) – The beverage maker’s stock was upgraded to “outperform” from “in line” at Evercore, which notes the strength of the company’s results during the pandemic, a strong management team, commodity tailwinds, and the idea that increased working from home could drive demand for its Keurig beverage system.

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
