Peter Schacknow

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

Chewy (CHWY) – Chewy posted a loss of 12 cents per share, smaller than the 16 cents a share loss that Wall Street had anticipated. The pet products retailer also reported better-than-expected revenue and gave an upbeat revenue forecast. Active customers now stand at 15 million, up 33% from a year ago.
AMC Entertainment (AMC) – AMC said it would reopen theaters globally in July, with limited capacity and certain seats blocked off to maintain safety. AMC had shut its theaters down in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It's also announced a partnership with Clorox (CLX) to sanitize its locations.
Genmab (GMAB) – The Copenhagen-based biotech company announced a broad collaboration with U.S.-based AbbVie (ABBV) to jointly develop and market three of Genmab's early-stage antibody treatments for cancer, as well as future treatments. Genmab will receive an upfront payment of $750 million and potential future payments of up to $3.15 billion.
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (RRGB) – The restaurant chain lost $6.66 per share for the first quarter, compared to a consensus estimate of a $1.10 per share loss. Revenue also came in below estimates, with comparable-restaurant sales falling 20.8%. Red Robin's business was hit by pandemic-related closures, but the company said trends have been improving in recent weeks as restaurants reopen.
GameStop (GME) – GameStop lost $1.61 per share for its latest quarter, greater than the loss of $1.27 per share that analysts had forecast. The videogame retailer's revenue was slightly below forecasts, and comparable-store sales excluding closed locations fell 17%. One bright spot for GameStop: a 519% increase in e-commerce sales.
Merck (MRK) – Merck said its cancer drug Keytruda did not meet its goals in a study involving bladder cancer patients. Keytruda is already approved for other types of cancer, with sales of more than $11 billion in 2019.
Vroom (VRM) – Vroom remains on watch after the online car seller's shares more than doubled in its debut session following its initial public offering.
Best Buy (BBY) – Best Buy plans to bring back 9,000 furloughed part-time and full-time workers, and will allow customers inside its stores for the first time since the pandemic began. The electronics retailer will limit the number of customers inside stores at any one time to 25% of normal capacity.
Five Below (FIVE) – Five reported a quarterly loss of 91 cents per share, compared to the consensus estimate of a 33 cents a share loss. The discount retailer's revenue came in below forecasts amid coronavirus-related closures, although the company said about 90% of its stores have now reopened.
MGM Resorts (MGM) – MGM will reopen more Las Vegas casinos, following strong performances for the Bellagio, MGM Grand, and New York New York following their reopenings. The Excalibur will open Thursday, followed by ARIA, Mandalay Bay and Four Seasons Las Vegas on July 1.
Etsy (ETSY) – The online crafts retailer was upgraded to "buy" from "hold" at Jefferies, which cites "home nesting dynamics" and repeat purchases of face mask sales driving long-term prospects for the company.
Nikola (NKLA) – The electric truck maker's share are on watch after a surge that sent its market value past that of Ford (F) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), even though it hasn't yet sold any vehicles. Nikola went public last week following a reverse merger with a special purpose acquisition company.

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
