Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Mattel–The toy maker earned $1.07 per share for the fourth quarter, below estimates of $1.20. Revenue also missed estimates, as sales fell 10 percent in North America and international sales were flat. Mattel did raise its quarterly dividend by 5.6 percent to 38 cents per share.

Simon Property Group–The mall operator beat estimates with both its earnings and funds from operations, as well as revenue. The company also raised its quarterly dividend to $1.25 per share from $1.20.

Tyco–The fire protection and security company reported fiscal first quarter profit of 47 cents per share, two cents above estimates. Tyco was helped both by acquisitions as well as a rebound in non-residential construction.

Netflix–The streaming video giant was upgraded to "equal-weight" from "underweight" at Morgan Stanley, which said its prior conclusion that U.S. subscriber growth would slow down was incorrect.

Newell Rubbermaid–The household products maker earned 47 cents per share for the fourth quarter, one cent above estimates. Newell saw sales improvements in all its regions and four of its five operating segments during the quarter.

Tyson Foods–The food producer earned 72 cents per share for its fiscal first quarter, nine cents above estimates. Tyson does say, however, that its beef segment may see profitability drop below normal levels in fiscal 2014.

Google–Google reported quarterly profit of $12.01 per share, missing assets by 19 cents. Revenue was slightly above expectations, as the increase in the number of ads offset a significant price decline.

Amazon.com– The online retail giant earned 51 cents per share for the fourth quarter, 15 cents short of estimates, with revenue shy of forecasts as well. The company also warned investors of a possible operating loss for the current quarter, as it invests more money in its distribution network.

Zynga–Zynga lost three cents per share for the fourth quarter, one cent smaller than analysts were anticipating, with revenue above consensus. The online gaming company also sees a smaller loss for the current quarter than the Street was anticipating, and plans to slash 15 percent of its work force to cut costs.

Chipotle Mexican Grill–Chipotle matched estimates with fourth quarter profit of $2.53 per share, while revenue exceeded forecasts and the restaurant chain forecast 2014 same-store sales growth in the mid-single digits.

Broadcom–Broadcom earned 60 cents per share, excluding certain items, for the fourth quarter, beating estimates by three cents. The chipmaker's revenue was slightly above estimates, relieving some concerns about the impact of slowing smartphone sales growth. Broadcom also raised its quarterly dividend by 9 percent to 12 cents per share.

JDS Uniphase–The company exceeded estimates by five cents with fiscal second quarter profit of 19 cents per share, with revenues also above consensus for the networking equipment maker.

Wynn Resorts–The resort company reported fourth quarter profit of $2.27 per share, well above estimates of $1.73. Revenue was also above estimates, thanks to growth in the company's Macau casino operations.

Boyd Gaming—The gaming company cut its fourth quarter guidance, and now sees a loss of 21 to 27 cents per share compared to estimates of an 18 cent loss. Boyd is being hurt by weaker than expected results at its Borgata casino in Atlantic City, NJ.

Yahoo–Yahoo announced a security attack aimed at Yahoo Mail, but said it took immediate action to protect users and there is no evidence that any data was actually stolen.

Northrop Grumman–The defense contractor has been accused of defrauding the U.S. government over a missile defense contract. Northrop said it does not comment on litigation matters.

Eli Lilly–Lilly has been sued by rival drug maker Sanofi, which accuses Lilly of infringing its patents on the diabetes treatment Lantus.
