Whole Foods - The retailer handed in fiscal third-quarter earnings that beat analysts' expectations, but shares plunged as revenue and comparable-store sales trailed Wall Street estimates.

Yelp - Shares of the consumer review website rose after it reported second-quarter earnings of 4 cents per share—its first quarterly profit as a public company—on revenue of $89 million, topping expectations as the number of unique monthly visitors rose significantly.

Weight Watchers - The stock soared after the maker of dieting products reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings and revenue. The company also raised its full-year fiscal 2014 earnings guidance.

Akamai Technologies - The cloud computing firm beat earnings expectations by 3 cents and reported quarterly revenue of $476 million, topping estimates of $473 million. But shares dropped in after-hours trading.

Kraft Foods - Shares were modestly lower after the food producer missed estimates on the top and bottom line as the company battles with rising input costs.

Vistaprint - The stock rallied more than 17 percent after the online printing company beat analysts estimates as fiscal fourth-quarter revenue climbed 21 percent year over year.
