Early Movers: NFLX, LEN, S, AAPL, MSFT & More

Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell on Tuesday:

Lennar — The home builder earned 61 cents per share for its latest quarter, excluding certain items, beating estimates of 33 cents. Revenue also beat consensus as new orders jumped 27 percent and home prices rose.

Walgreen — The drug store operator earned 85 cents per share, excluding certain items, six cents below estimates, with revenue falling short of consensus as well. CEO Greg Wasson pointed to front-end sales that are still not up to the company's expectations, although pharmacy sales are strengthening.

Netflix — Bernstein has downgraded Netflix to "underperform" from "market perform", saying current valuation reflects "unrealistic expectations".

Coach —The stock has been cut to "neutral" from "buy" at Lazard, which thinks the retailer's near term sales will be under pressure because of growing competition.

Yahoo — The company holds its annual shareholder meeting today, its first since Marissa Mayer took over as CEO last year.

Sprint —Sprint shareholders will vote today on SoftBank's proposed acquisition of the majority of Sprint's shares.

Navistar — Chief financial officer Andrew Cederoth will be leaving at the end of the month. Treasurer James Moran will take over on an interim basis while the company finalizes the hiring of a new CFO.

Sonic— The company reported third quarter profit of 26 cents per share, in line with Wall Street estimates, but the restaurant chain's revenues fell short of consensus. Drive-in sales declined, although Sonic also reported lower costs.

Microsoft —Microsoft will offer its "Age of Empires" game for Apple's iPhone, as well as other phones. Microsoft has released a handful of other games for iOS and Android, but "Age of Empires" is its most popular game to be released for venues other than its Xbox console.

Men's Wearhouse —Founder George Zimmer was seen by the company's board as undermining the authority of CEO Doug Ewert, according to sources quoted by Reuters. Zimmer was terminated last week as the company's executive chairman.

Apple — A Tokyo court has upheld a lower court ruling in favor of Samsung in one of its cases versus Apple. The lower court had ruled that Samsung did not infringe Apple's patent for synchronizing music and data across different devices.

Correction: an earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Lennar had earned 43 cents per share during its latest quarter. The correct figure is 61 cents per share.
