Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell on Monday:
Merck – The drug company earned 92 cents per share for the third quarter, excluding certain items, four cents above estimates, though revenue was slightly short of consensus. Merck's full-year forecast is also above current analyst forecasts, although it does say its third quarter results were hurt by the expiration of various patents, and by negative currency impact.
Roper Industries– The appliance maker earned $1.42 per share, excluding certain items, for the third quarter, three cents short of estimates. Revenue was below Street consensus as well, and the company cut its full-year forecast, as growth in certain markets comes in slower than Roper had expected.
Burger King Worldwide– The restaurant operator reported third quarter profit of 23 cents per share, excluding certain items, two cents above estimates, with revenue also scoring a beat. Comparable store sales increased 0.9 percent during the quarter compared to a year earlier.
Loral Space & Communications– Chairman Mark Rachesky is putting Loral up for sale, according to the New York Post, citing sources.
Crocs – Piper Jaffray downgraded the shoe maker's stock to "neutral" from "overweight", saying near-term domestic trends are "choppy" and that promotional activity has been higher in October.
Facebook - All Things D reports Facebook has decided not to launch video ads this year. Instead, the social network will take more time to evaluate the idea.
General Motors – The largest U.S. automaker was outsold by Toyota (TM) during the first nine months of the year, according to the Japanese automaker. Toyota sold 7.41 million vehicles during that period, compared to 7.25 million for GM.
Dendreon – The drug maker is looking for a possible buyer, according to Bloomberg. The news comes after sales for its prostate cancer drug Provenge came in weaker than expected.
