    Stocks making the biggest moves in the premarket: Deere, Dropbox, Novavax & more

    Peter Schacknow

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

    Deere (DE) – The heavy equipment maker earned $3.87 per share for its fiscal first quarter, compared to a consensus estimate of $2.14 a share. Revenue also beat forecasts, and Deere increased its full-year earnings outlook amid improvements in the agricultural and construction sectors. Deere shares jumped 6.2% in premarket trading.

    Roku (ROKU) – Roku shares rose 1.4% in the premarket, after it reported a quarterly profit of 49 cents per share, compared to consensus forecasts of a 6 cents per share loss. The streaming video device maker's revenue also beat forecasts, amid a 58% surge as consumers stuck at home during the pandemic sought more video entertainment.

    Uber Technologies (UBER) – The ride-hailing company lost a key case in the U.K., where a Supreme Court judge upheld a ruling by an employment tribunal that said Uber's drivers were employees and not contract workers. Uber fell 1.9% in premarket action.

    Dropbox (DBX) – Dropbox came in 4 cents a share ahead of estimates, with quarterly earnings of 28 cents per share. The cloud storage company's revenue also came in above Wall Street projections. Dropbox had a greater-than-expected number of paid users during the quarter, as well as better-than-expected revenue per user. It also forecast full-year revenue below analysts' estimates, however, and the shares fell 3.4% premarket.

    Applied Materials (AMAT) – Applied Materials earned $1.39 per share for the fourth quarter, compared to a consensus estimate of $1.28 a share. Revenue also came in above forecasts. The maker of semiconductor manufacturing equipment also gave an upbeat current-quarter forecast, as chip makers try to accelerate production to deal with a global shortage. Applied Materials jumped 5% in premarket trading.

    Novavax (NVAX) – The drugmaker's stock surged 10.6% in the premarket after it struck an agreement with global vaccine alliance Gavi to supply 1.1 billion doses of its Covid-19 vaccine to an international vaccination effort.

    TripAdvisor (TRIP) – TripAdvisor reported a quarterly loss of 41 cents per share, wider than the 26 cents a share loss that analysts were anticipating. The travel website operator's revenue beat estimates, and the company noted that pent-up travel demand and positive vaccine developments should lead to improved results this year. Its shares fell 2.4% in premarket trading.

    Pfizer (PFE) – The Covid-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech (BNTX) was 85% effective after just the first dose, according to a study of Israeli health-care workers published in The Lancet medical journal. As with a competing vaccine from Moderna (MRNA), patients receive two doses of the Pfizer vaccine to achieve maximum protection.

    Royal Caribbean (RCL) – Royal Caribbean said it will be restricted from paying cash dividends and from buying back stock until the third quarter of 2022, due to modifications in the cruise line operator's loan agreements. It had suspended dividends and buybacks last year as the pandemic shut down cruising activity.

    IBM (IBM) – IBM is considering a possible sale of its IBM Watson Health business, according to people familiar with the matter who spoke to The Wall Street Journal. Alternatives could include a sale to a private-equity firm or another health company, or a merger of the unit with a special purpose acquisition company.

    Texas Roadhouse (TXRH) – The restaurant chain earned 28 cents per share for the fourth quarter, short of the 49 cents a share consensus estimate. Revenue also came in shy of analysts' forecasts. Texas Roadhouse said weekly sales levels weakened during the latter part of the quarter as a Covid-19 resurgence forced it to close some locations. Texas Roadhouse shares fell 3.5% premarket.

    Planet Fitness (PLNT) – The gym operator's quarterly earnings fell 5 cents a share shy of consensus as it reported profit of 17 cents per share. Revenue came in shy of estimates as well. Same-location sales fell more than expected, and Planet Fitness did not provide a 2021 outlook due to uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Shares dropped 2.5% in premarket trading.

    Rackspace (RXT) – Rackspace beat estimates by 3 cents with quarterly profit of 26 cents per share. Revenue also came in above forecasts, however the cloud services provider issued a weaker-than-expected full-year earnings forecast. Its shares tumbled 9.7% in premarket action.

    Yun Li


    Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:

    Snowflake (SNOW) — Shares of Snowflake dropped more than 6% after the cloud company’s shares more than doubled at its market debut on the New York Stock Exchange. The initial public offering marked the largest software debut ever. Snowflake was worth $70.4 billion at the end of Wednesday’s trading, more than five times its $12.4 billion valuation in February.

    Carnival (CCL), Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH), United Airlines (UAL) — Shares of airlines and cruise operators came under pressure amid conflicting messages about the timeline of a coronavirus vaccine. President Donald Trump said late Wednesday that the U.S. could distribute a vaccine as early as October, while the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said vaccinations would be in limited quantities this year and not widely distributed for six to nine months. Carnival and Norwegian both fell more than 3%, while United Airlines and American Airlines (AAL) dipped at least 1% each.

    Moderna (MRNA) — Shares of Moderna gained nearly 3% after the biotech firm CEO Stephane Bancel said it should have enough data from its late-stage trial to know whether its coronavirus vaccine works in November. Separately, the company announced a collaboration with Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) to develop a treatment for cystic fibrosis.

    Eastman Kodak (KODK) — Shares of Kodak gained another 5% after an independent review found the company didn’t break any laws related to its disclosure of a $765 million loan from the U.S. government to help produce drug ingredients. The stock surged 36% on Wednesday alone.

    Tesla (TSLA), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN) — Technology stocks are set to resume their recent sell-off with the so-called FANG block all dipping at least 1% in premarket. Apple and Amazon led the declines, both falling 1.5%. Meanwhile, Tesla dropped more than 3%. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite last week dipped into correction territory, falling more than 10% from a record high.

    CVS Health (CVS) — Shares of CVS rose slightly after Piper Sandler initiated the drugstore chain with an “overweight” rating. The Wall Street firm said CVS is “well positioned to transform health care access, quality, reduce costs.” The stock is down more than 20% this year.

    Penn National Gaming (PENN) — Shares of Penn National Gaming fell slightly even after Stifel hiked its price target on the sports-betting company to a Street high of $85 per share, representing a 25% gain from here. The stock has surged more than 14% this week alone.

    Peter Schacknow



    Take a look at some of the biggest movers in the premarket:
    Tractor Supply (TSCO) – Tractor Supply said it expected record-breaking sales and earnings for the current quarter, and that comparable-store sales for the farm supply company would grow by 20% to 25%. Tractor Supply shares are up 47% since nationwide lockdowns began in mid-March, the best gain of any retail stock in the S&P 500.
    Walt Disney (DIS) – Disney will submit a plan today to Orange County officials for reopening its Walt Disney World resort. Disney needs approval from the county and then from the governor before Walt Disney World can reopen.
    Boeing (BA) – The jet maker plans to announce 2,500 voluntary layoffs this week, according to union officials. This would be the first phase of wider job cuts that Boeing has said will amount to about 10% of its workforce.
    Papa John's (PZZA) – The pizza chain said comparable-store sales jumped 33.5% in North America this month, and it plans to provide another monthly update for June.
    Tesla (TSLA) – Tesla has cut vehicle prices in North America by as much as 6%, following a decline in auto demand since pandemic-related lockdowns began.
    Sanofi (SNY) – Sanofi will raise more than $11 billion from its sale of shares in U.S. partner Regeneron (REGN), selling 21.6 million shares at $515 per share. The French drugmaker could wind up raising $11.7 billion if underwriters exercise an option to buy 1.2 million addition Regeneron shares.
    Amazon.com (AMZN) – Amazon is in advanced talks to buy Zoox, according to The Wall Street Journal. Zoox is a developer of technology for self-driving taxis that can be summoned by phone.
    Twitter (TWTR) – Twitter has applied fact-checking notices to tweets by President Donald Trump for the first time, applying them to two tweets about alleged fraud related to mail-in ballots. Twitter had instituted a policy earlier this month saying it would apply fact-checking labels to topics subject to misinformation.
    Walmart (WMT) – Walmart struck a deal with second-hand apparel seller ThredUp, allowing customers to browse ThredUp offerings on its website and get free shipping if they spend $35 or more.
    Domino's Pizza (DPZ) – Domino's said it has seen a rebound in demand during the first eight weeks of the current quarter, though growth in the U.S. has been much stronger than in international markets. Comparable-store sales in the U.S. increased by 14% between March 23 and May 17, but international sales were up by just 1% during that same period.
    Brown-Forman (BF.B) – UBS downgraded the spirits maker's stock to "sell" from "neutral," saying the pandemic and its economic fallout present short and long term challenges that are not reflected in the stock's price.
    Freshpet (FRPT) – Jefferies rates the fresh pet food seller as a "buy" in new coverage, saying Freshpet is positioned to sustain mid-20s annual sales growth with a best-in-class business model and a natural competitive moat.

    US Market | Biggest Moves Premarket: Stocks making the biggest moves in the premarket: Moderna, Goldman Sachs, Under Armour & more

    Peter Schacknow





    Take a look at some of the biggest movers in the premarket:
    Moderna (MRNA) – The biotech company announced positive interim data from a phase 1 study of its novel coronavirus vaccine candidate. Moderna said dose-dependent increases in immune responses were seen across three different dose levels, and that the treatment was generally safe and well-tolerated.
    Goldman Sachs (GS) – Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway sold most of its holdings in Goldman, according to Berkshire’s quarterly 13F filing. Berkshire’s sale of Goldman shares brings its holdings down to 1.9 million shares from more than 10 million, cutting its stake to about 0.6%. Berkshire had invested $5 billion in the Wall Street stalwart during the 2008 financial crisis.
    Uber (UBER), Grubhub (GRUB) – The Wall Street Journal reports the CEOs of both companies met over the weekend to continue merger discussions, as they try to work out a stock-swap deal that would combine Uber’s delivery service, Uber Eats, with Grubhub. Grubhub continues to maintain that Uber’s current offer is too low.
    Under Armour (UAA) – Allianz chief economic advisor Mohamed El-Erian was named lead independent director, effective at the athletic apparel maker’s annual meeting on May 27. El-Erian has been an Under Armour board member since 2018.
    Alphabet (GOOGL) – Alphabet’s Google unit will be the target of likely antitrust lawsuits from the Justice Department and state attorneys general, according to The Wall Street Journal. The suits will focus on Google’s dominance in both the advertising business and in online search.
    T-Mobile US (TMUS) – Japan’s Softbank is in talks to sell a significant portion of its stake in the wireless operator to controlling shareholder Deutsche Telekom, according to The Wall Street Journal. Such a transaction would boost Deutsche Telekom’s share from nearly 44% to over 50%.
    International Game Technology (IGT) – The maker of electronic gaming equipment and software earned 8 cents per share for its latest quarter, beating the 3 cents a share consensus estimates. Revenue fell short of forecasts. The company said the impact from Covid-19 began to set in during March, amid closures of casinos and gaming halls, but IGT said it has sufficient liquidity to weather the pandemic.
    Tesla (TSLA) – Tesla has zeroed in on two locations in Texas and Oklahoma as possible sites for a new factory, according to a source intimately familiar with the automaker’s plans who spoke to CNBC.
    Best Buy (BBY) – Best Buy was upgraded to “outperform” from “market perform” at Telsey Advisory Group, which expects the electronic retailer to benefit from the shift to working at home and increased consumer adoption of e-commerce.
    J.C. Penney (JCP) – The retailer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, with plans to hand control to lenders and split into two separate companies. One would hold the retail operations, while the other would be a real estate investment trust holding some of the company’s property.
    Walt Disney (DIS) – Disney will reopen part of the shopping area at its Disney Springs resort in Florida on Wednesday. The company is implementing a variety of safety measures, including masks and contactless payment options.
    Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) – Fiat Chrysler is in talks to set up a $6.8 billion credit line that will be guaranteed by the Italian government. The automaker is trying to shore up its finances as it deals with the impact of the coronavirus outbreak as well as proceed with its planned merger with Peugeot parent PSA Groupe.
    Cinemark Holdings (CNK) – Cinemark was downgraded to “neutral” from “buy” at B Riley FBR, which points to a variety of negative factors for the movie theater operator including a worsening coronavirus situation in Brazil.

    Peter Schacknow



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

    Raytheon Technologies (RTX) – The defense contractor reported quarterly profit of $1.78 per share, beating the consensus estimate of $1.22 a share. Revenue also beat forecasts and Raytheon said it would not provide a financial outlook at this time due to pandemic-related uncertainty.
    ViacomCBS (VIAC) – The media company beat estimates by 17 cents a share, with quarterly earnings of $1.13 per share. Revenue also came in above estimates. ViacomCBS logged a 51% increase during the quarter in domestic streaming and digital video revenue.
    AmerisourceBergen (ABC) – The drug distributor reported quarterly earnings of $2.40 per share, 13 cents a share above estimates. Revenue also exceeding forecasts. The company cut its full-year earnings forecast to incorporate the potential impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
    Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) – The drugmaker earned $1.72 per share for the first quarter, 23 cents a share above estimates. Revenue also topped analysts’ projections. The company said it was maintaining its 2020 earnings forecast, despite the pandemic that it thinks will shave $500 million off 2020 revenue.
    Dish Network (DISH) – The satellite TV provider reported better-than-expected first-quarter revenue, but lost 250,000 subscribers during the quarter due to disconnections in the airline and hospitality sectors.
    Edgewell Personal Care (EPC) – The maker of Schick razors, Edge shaving cream, and other personal care products missed estimates by a penny a share, with quarterly earnings of 92 cents per share. Revenue beat forecasts. Edgewell withdrew its full-year forecast due to pandemic-related uncertainty.
    Hilton Worldwide (HLT) – The hotel operator reported quarterly earnings of 74 cents per share for the first quarter, beating the 55 cents a share consensus estimate. Revenue was essentially in line with expectations. Hilton said the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic did not become significant until March, although comparable systemwide revenue per available room did tumble 22.6% during the quarter on a currency-neutral basis.
    JetBlue (JBLU) – JetBlue lost 42 cents per share during the first quarter, wider than the 36 cents a share loss anticipated by Wall Street. Revenue was shy of expectations as well. Like other airlines, JetBlue was impacted by the severe drop in travel demand, although it did say it expects its daily cash burn rate to fall to $10 million this month from $18 million during the second half of March.
    Moderna (MRNA) – Moderna said it had received Food and Drug Administration approval for its Covid-19 vaccine candidate to proceed to a phase 2 study.
    Teva Pharmaceutical (TEVA) – The drugmaker reported quarterly earnings of 76 cents per share, 17 cents a share above estimates. Revenue also beat forecasts. Teva saw stronger demand for its generic and over-the-counter drugs, and also reaffirmed its 2020 outlook.

    T-Mobile US (TMUS) – T-Mobile beat estimates by 8 cents a share, with quarterly earnings of $1.10 per share. The wireless carrier’s revenue was slightly below forecasts. T-Mobile said it expected the pandemic to negatively impact its results through at least the end of the year.
    PayPal (PYPL) – PayPal earned 66 cents per share for its latest quarter, 9 cents a share shy of estimates. The payment services company’s revenue also registered a miss. PayPal said it expects a strong recovery during the current quarter as more people shift to online shopping.
    Square (SQ) – Square reported a quarterly loss of 2 cents per share, surprising analysts who had forecast a 13 cents per share profit for the mobile payment services provider. The pandemic resulted in a significant drop in transaction volume for the quarter, and Square expects a material impact for the current quarter as well.
    Etsy (ETSY) – Etsy fell 9 cents a share shy of estimates, with quarterly earnings of 10 cents per share. The online crafts marketplace’s revenue beat Wall Street forecasts. The revenue performance got a boost from sales of face masks, a trend that Etsy expects to grow in the current quarter.

    Peloton Interactive (PTON) – Peloton lost 20 cents per share for its fiscal third quarter, wider than the 17 cents a share loss predicted by analysts.

    Lyft (LYFT) – Lyft lost $1.09 per share for the first quarter, compared to the loss of 63 cents per share forecast by Wall Street. The ride-hailing service’s revenue beat estimates, however, jumping 23% from a year earlier.
    Wynn Resorts (WYNN) – Wynn posted a wider-than-expected loss and revenue below analysts’ estimates. The casino operator saw a significant impact from coronavirus-related shutdowns. Wynn also suspended its quarterly dividend.
    Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) – Anheuser-Busch saw a 13.7% drop in first-quarter profit, with the world’s largest beer brewer predicting a “materially worse” performance for the current quarter amid bar and restaurant shutdowns due to the coronavirus outbreak.
    Flir Systems (FLIR) – Flir will provide General Motors (GM) with 377 of its thermal scanners to help detect fever among the automaker’s employees when they return to work at GM factories, according to a Reuters report.
    Domino’s Pizza (DPZ), DexCom (DXCM) – The pizza chain and the glucose monitoring system maker will join the S&P 500 next week, replacing Michael Kors parent Capri Holdings (CPRI) and drugmaker Allergan (AGN).

    Market Insider | Biggest Moves Premarket: Stocks making the biggest moves in the premarket: Tesla, Amazon, Disney, Boeing, Zoom Video & more

    Peter Schacknow



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

    Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) – The sporting goods retailer will furlough an unspecified number of workers starting April 12. It will pay workers until April 11, and provide health benefits throughout the furlough. A similar announcement comes this morning from Party City (PRTY), which is furloughing 90% of its store employees and 70% of those who work in other functions. As with Dick's, Party City's furloughed employees will continue to receive health benefits.
    Levi Strauss (LEVI) – Levi Strauss reported quarterly profit of 40 cents per share, 5 cents a share above estimates. The apparel maker's revenue also beat forecasts. The company warned the economic impact of the coronavirus outbreak would be material, and that it is withdrawing its 2020 guidance.
    Tesla (TSLA) – Tesla will furlough all non-essential workers and cut salaries as the virus outbreak shuts down the automaker's production. Tesla currently plans to resume production on May 4.
    Amazon (AMZN) – Amazon is suspending its "Amazon Shipping" service in June, according to the Wall Street Journal. The service is a competitor to United Parcel Service (UPS) and FedEx (FDX) that delivers non-Amazon packages and is available in only a few U.S. cities.
    Walt Disney (DIS) – Disney may require visitors to have their temperatures checked when it reopens its theme parks, according to Executive Chairman Bob Iger. He told Barron's the temperature check is one way to make the public feel safe about returning to the parks.
    Wynn Resorts (WYNN), NCR (NCR) – Wynn and NCR raised a total of $1 billion in separate debt sales Tuesday, the first unsecured junk bond offerings since the coronavirus crisis emerged. The successful sales are seen as a sign that investor appetite for risk may be slowly returning.
    Boeing (BA) – Boeing is implementing two new software updates for its grounded 737 Max jet, as it moves toward securing regulatory approval to return the jet to service.
    Williams Cos. (WMB) – Williams adopted a so-called "poison pill" that will kick in if anyone accumulates a stake of 5 percent or more in the pipeline operator.

    Take a look at some of the biggest stocks moving before the market opens:
    Exxon Mobil – Exxon Mobil said it was cutting 2020 capital expenditures by 30% and cash operating expenses by 15%, with the moves designed to put it in the strongest possible position when the energy markets improve.
    Slack Technologies – The workplace messaging service increased the size of its planned convertible debt offering to $750 million from its originally planned $600 million. The debt is due in 2025 and can be converted to cash, stock, or a combination of the two. The offering has an interest rate of 0.5%.
    3M – The manufacturer will produce nearly 167 million medical masks for the government over the next three months, as the company and the White House resolve last week’s dispute over 3M’s efforts to ramp up production of medical supplies.
    AT&T – The company issued a financial update to incorporate the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, saying it had a strong cash position and balance sheet as well as attractive liquidity levels. It also announced plans to continue paying quarterly dividends to shareholders.
    Wells Fargo reduced its portfolio of mortgage products offered to consumers, according to a memo seen by Reuters. The bank is trying to stay under a $1.95 trillion balance-sheet cap imposed by regulators, an effort that has become more difficult amid the coronavirus outbreak and the loan programs announced by the government.
    Boeing is temporarily suspending production of its 787 jet at its South Carolina plant, following a coronavirus-related stay-at-home order issued by the state’s governor.
    Kraft Heinz said it expected a rise in first-quarter sales, as demand for its food products jumps among consumers staying at home during the virus outbreak. Analysts had been expecting a sales decline.
    Beazer Homes reported a 3.9% increase in net new orders for its most recent quarter but noted a significant slowdown in customer traffic and sales amid the coronavirus outbreak. The home builder also said it is taking steps to boost liquidity as it deals with the impact of COVID-19.
    Lowe’s – The home-improvement retailer was upgraded to “buy” from “hold” at Loop Capital, which cited several factors, including valuation and the fact that Lowe’s is one of the few retail operations currently open in the U.S.
    Activision Blizzard, Take-Two Interactive – The video game makers were both rated “overweight” in new coverage at Wells Fargo Securities. The firm points to an overall secular growth trend in the industry, as well as the strength of franchises like Take-Two’s “Grand Theft Auto” and “NBA 2K” and Activision’s “Call of Duty” and “Candy Crush.”
    Shopify – Raymond James downgraded the e-commerce platform company’s stock to “market perform” from “outperform,” based on an expectation of near-term headwinds and the fact that the company’s withdrawal of 2020 guidance points to a slowdown in demand.
