Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Procter & Gamble–The consumer products giant reported fiscal fourth quarter profit of 95 cents per share, four cents above estimates, though revenue came up slightly short of consensus. P&G said its organic sales were up two percent from a year earlier, and its results were also helped by cost cuts.

Hilton Worldwide–The hotel operator beat estimates by two cents with second quarter profit of 21 cents per share, with revenue also above estimates. Hilton also raised its full year outlook as it benefits from higher room rates and greater occupancy.

Bally Technologies– The gaming equipment maker is being bought by Scientific Games for $83.30 per share in cash, or a total of $3.3 billion excluding assumed debt.


Tesla–Tesla reported earnings of 11 cents per share, excluding certain items, seven cents above estimates, with revenue also beating consensus. The company also announced it would fund 40 to 50 percent of the cost of its planned $5 billion battery "gigafactory", and that it planned to build more than 60,000 vehicles in 2015.

Expedia–The travel website earned $1.03 per share for the second quarter, swamping estimates of 76 cents, though revenue was only slightly above consensus. Expedia's results were helped by a 29 percent increase in gross bookings.

LinkedIn–LinkedIn beat estimates by 12 cents with second quarter profit of 51 cents per share, and scored a strong beat on the top line as well. The corporate networking website operator was helped by an increase in its newer businesses, such as employee recruitment.

GoPro–GoPro earned 8 cents per share excluding certain items, for the second quarter. That was two cents above estimates, with revenue above consensus as well. The high-end camera maker did see expenses surge from a year earlier, led by a more than doubling in research and development.

Outerwall–The company reported second quarter profit of $1.42 per share, excluding certain items, seven cents above estimates, but revenue was short of analyst forecasts. Outerwall's Redbox business was hit by a drop in the number of new DVD movie releases, and the company gave a current quarter revenue forecast that falls below analyst estimates.

Las Vegas Sands, Wynn Resorts–These and other casino stocks could move today following news that casino revenue in Macau fell 3.6 percent in July, the second straight monthly drop.
