Peter Schacknow

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

Wayfair (W) – The online home decor retailer nearly tripled the consensus estimate of 80 cents per share, with quarterly profit of $2.30 per share. Revenue also came in above estimates, benefiting from strong demand in its category and an overall ongoing shift toward online purchasing by consumers. Membership numbers grew by a little more than 50% from a year ago. Shares of Wayfair soared 12% in premarket trade.

Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ) – Jazz Pharmaceuticals reported quarterly profit of $4.31 per share, 27 cents a share above estimates. Revenue also came in above forecasts as well and the drugmaker raised its full-year revenue forecast. The company’s shares were up 7% in the premarket.

Cirrus Logic (CRUS) – Cirrus beat the consensus estimate of 90 cents a share, with quarterly earnings of $1.26 per share. The maker of electronic components also reported better-than-expected revenue. Cirrus announced that President John Forsyth will become CEO on Jan. 1, succeeding Jason Rhode. Shares were up nearly 8% in the premarket.

Humana (HUM) – The health insurer reported a quarterly profit of $3.08 per share, beating the $2.81 consensus estimate, with revenue above estimates as well. Humana forecast a current-quarter loss, however, due to a resumption of payouts for medical procedures that had been delayed due to the pandemic. Humana also raised its 2020 Medicare Advantage membership growth outlook. Shares of Humana were up more than 1.5% in premarket trading.

McKesson (MCK) – The pharmaceutical distributor earned $4.80 per share for its latest quarter, compared to a consensus estimate of $3.87 a share. Revenue also beat forecasts, and the company increased its full-year guidance. McKesson’s results were helped by strong demand for virus tests and personal protective equipment. McKesson shares were up nearly 4% in the premarket.

Ferrari (RACE) – The automaker reported better-than-expected earnings and revenue for its latest quarter, and said its 2020 results would come in near the upper end of the range it issued in August. Shares of the company were up 4% in the premarket.

Twitter (TWTR) – Twitter said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that a board committee has determined that the company’s current management structure should remain in place, seen as a reprieve for CEO Jack Dorsey. It also suggested changes to Twitter’s board structure to give a larger voice to shareholders. Twitter plans to begin a previously announced $2 billion share buyback program this quarter. Twitter shares edged 1% higher in the premarket.

Mondelez (MDLZ) – Mondelez beat estimates by a penny a share, with quarterly earnings of 63 cents per share. The maker of Oreo cookie and other snacks saw its revenue top forecasts as well. Mondelez continued to benefit from stay-at-home consumers stocking up on its snacks. The company also plans to reinstate its share buyback program this quarter. Shares of the company slipped about 1% in premarket trade.

Royal Caribbean (RCL) – Royal Caribbean extended cruise cancellations through the end of the year, amid an increase in global virus cases. Rival Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) had made a similar announcement earlier on Monday. Royal Caribbean traded slightly lower premarket.

PayPal (PYPL) – PayPal reported quarterly earnings of $1.07 per share, beating the consensus estimate of 94 cents a share. The digital payment service’s revenue came in slightly above Wall Street forecasts, boosted by the ongoing increase in digital transactions. The company gave current-quarter earnings guidance that disappointed some investors, however, sending its shares more than 5% lower in the premarket.

Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) – Skyworks earned $1.85 per share for its fiscal fourth quarter, compared to a consensus estimate of $1.52 per share. The chipmaker’s revenue came in well above analysts’ projections. Skyworks also issued an upbeat current-quarter outlook, helped by the ramp-up in 5G smartphone platforms. Shares were little changed in the premarket.

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
