Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell Thursday:
Yahoo - The Internet company unveiled a new logo, the first re-design since the firm was founded nearly 20 years ago.

Separately, AdWeek reported Yahoo COO Henrique De Castro could be gone by year-end, amid increasing pressure to deliver improved ad results.
BlackBerry - The struggling smartphone maker is aiming to quickly auction itself off, possibly as soon as November, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. Blackberry has been in discussions with multiple parties interested in buying parts of the company or the firm as a whole.
Costco - The wholesale retailer posted August same-store sales that exceeded Wall Street estimates, despite lower fuel costs and weak foreign exchange rates.
LinkedIn - The professional networking website said it was pricing its follow-on offering of 5.4 million class A shares at $233 a share. The company intends to raise $1.2 billion through the offering.
Boeing - The aerospace giant said China will need 5,580 commercial aircraft over the next 20 years, worth nearly $780 billion, as tourism in the country and within Asia will drive the need for single-aisle airplanes.
Louisiana-Pacific - The construction-materials maker has agreed to acquire Vancouver-based Ainsworth Lumber in a deal worth roughly $1.1 billion.
