minute read

Check out the companies making headlines in premarket trading Thursday.

Apple:Apple encountered a decline exceeding 2.6% in its share value subsequent to a report, which disclosed China's intention to extend a ban on iPhone usage to state-owned enterprises. This announcement followed a previous report by The Wall Street Journal, which indicated China's move to prohibit the utilization of iPhones and other foreign-branded devices within government agencies.

Dutch Bros:Dutch Bros, the drive-through coffee chain, experienced a premarket drop of approximately 6% as it unveiled plans for a public offering of $300 million in Class A common stock after the close of the market on Wednesday.

Dave & Buster’s:The entertainment and dining company, Dave & Buster’s, observed a decline exceeding 3% in its stock value following the release of second-quarter earnings that fell short of expectations. The company reported a profit of 60 cents per share on $542 million in revenue, whereas analysts surveyed by LSEG had anticipated earnings of 93 cents per share on $559 million in revenue. Comparable sales also exhibited a year-over-year decline on a pro forma basis.

McDonald’s:McDonald’s, the fast-food chain, registered a premarket gain of nearly 1% subsequent to an upgrade from Wells Fargo, which raised the stock's rating from equal weight to overweight. The rationale cited was McDonald's robust performance in innovation, with potential upside anticipated in the second half of the year.

ChargePoint Holdings:Shares of ChargePoint Holdings, the electric vehicle charging infrastructure company, witnessed an 11.6% decrease following the company's fiscal second-quarter results that failed to meet analyst estimates. ChargePoint reported revenue of $150 million, falling short of the $153 million forecasted by analysts. Additionally, the company announced a reduction in its global workforce by approximately 10%.

WestRock:WestRock shares ascended by 6.7% in response to a report, suggesting that the company is nearing a merger with Europe’s Smurfit Kappa. Such a merger could potentially create a global paper and packaging conglomerate with an estimated value of $20 billion.

C3.ai:The artificial intelligence software company, C3.ai, encountered a substantial decline of 9.2% following its announcement of a larger-than-anticipated operating loss for the fiscal second quarter. C3.ai projected an operating loss ranging from $27 million to $40 million, whereas analysts polled by StreetAccount had anticipated a loss of $20.5 million. In its most recent quarter, C3.ai reported a loss of 9 cents per share (excluding items) on $72.4 million in revenue, whereas analysts surveyed by LSEG had expected a loss of 17 cents per share on revenue of $71.6 million.

Roku:Roku, a prominent player in the streaming industry, experienced a 1% decline in early morning trading following a downgrade from Loop Capital, which lowered the company's rating from buy to hold. This decision came in the wake of Roku's announcement that it intends to reduce its workforce by 10%, consolidate office space, and review its content slate to reduce expenses. Notably, Roku had recently raised its third-quarter revenue guidance, now expecting revenue to range between $835 million and $875 million, as opposed to the previous guidance of $815 million.

Verint Systems:Verint Systems, an analytics company, witnessed a premarket decline of 16.2% due to its second-quarter earnings and revenue falling short of expectations. The company reported adjusted earnings of 48 cents per share, while analysts polled by FactSet had forecasted earnings of 57 cents per share. Furthermore, Verint's revenue amounted to $210.2 million, failing to meet the estimated $57.4 million.
