Early movers: TMUS, HRL, XOM, FL, AAPL & more

Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

T-Mobile US – The mobile operator beat estimates by seven cents with quarterly profit of 12 cents per share. Revenue also beat consensus as the company added 2.1 million net subscribers during the quarter.

Host Hotels – The hotel operator earned 33 cents per share for its latest quarter, five cents above estimates. However, revenue was below analyst forecasts, and Host Hotels warned of negative impact from the stronger dollar during 2015.

Hormel Foods – Hormel beat estimates by five cents with adjusted quarterly profit of 69 cents per share, with revenue falling below analyst consensus. However, the meat processor raised its earnings outlook for the year as meat prices drop and strong demand for its turkey products.

Bloomin' Brands – The restaurant chain operator earned an adjusted 28 cents per share for its latest quarter, one cent above estimates. Revenue also beat forecasts, thanks in part to a 6.4 percent jump in same-restaurant sales at the company's Outback Steakhouse chain.

Exxon Mobil, Chevron – These and other oil-related stocks are lower on the renewed plunge in oil prices.

DirecTV – The satellite TV operator beat estimates by 13 cents with adjusted quarterly profit of $1.53 per share, with revenue also above estimates. DirecTV also added 149,000 net subscribers during the quarter.

Coach – Topeka Capital upgraded the luxury goods retailer to "buy" from "hold", saying it was impressed by Coach's offerings during Fashion Week.

Marriott – Marriott reported quarterly profit of 68 cents per share, beating estimates by three cents. Revenue was also above estimates, as was the hotel chain's first quarter and full year 2015 guidance. Marriott has been helped by particularly strong demand in North America.

Foot Locker – The athletic footwear and apparel retailer increased its quarterly dividend by 14 percent to 25 cents per share, and also increased its stock buyback program to $1 billion from the prior $600 million.

SunEdison – SunEdison lost 16 cents per share for its latest quarter, smaller than the 33 cent loss expected by Wall Street, although its revenue was well below forecasts. The solar equipment maker said achieved record quarterly and annual power output in the fourth quarter and in 2014, but investors appear focused, at least initially, on those smaller than expected sales.

SolarCity – SolarCity lost $1.33 per share for its fourth quarter, a loss that was six cents wider than analysts were predicting. SolarCity spent more money on installations during the quarter, as it sought to complete those projects before a cut in a key federal tax credit for solar equipment.

Avis Budget – Avis Budget reported adjusted quarterly profit of 23 cents per share, three cents above estimates, while revenue was slightly below analyst forecasts. The car rental company saw higher volume and stronger pricing in North America, but was negatively impacted by the stronger U.S. dollar.

Apple – Apple is accused of poaching engineers in a lawsuit filed by electric car battery manufacturer A123 Systems. The lawsuit comes amid reports that Apple is working on developing its own automobile.

Hershey – Hershey is projecting a nearly 60 percent increase in chocolate sales in China by 2019, to a total of $4.3 billion.

Ball – Ball is offering about $6.85 billion in cash and stock to buy Britain's Rexam (REXMY), a rival maker of beverage cans.

Delphi Automotive – The auto parts retailer is selling its thermal business to German automotive parts manufacturer Mahle for about $727 million.
