Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:
Intel—Cannacord upgraded the chipmaker's stock to "buy" from "hold," saying Intel's fundamentals have improved. It also noted the 15 percent year-to-date drop, including Thursday's decline following a cut by Intel for its revenue forecast.
The Buckle—The apparel and accessories retailer earned $1.25 per share for its latest quarter, beating estimates by 1 cent. Revenue was also above estimates as comparable store sales rose 1.1 percent from a year earlier.
Toyota—According to an IOC statement, the automaker has signed an agreement to be a leading sponsor of the Olympic Games until 2024.
El Pollo Loco—The restaurant chain reported adjusted quarterly profit of 14 cents per share, 2 cents above estimates. El Pollo Loco's revenue also beat forecasts, and its forecasts for 2015 are largely above estimates. The company is projecting same-restaurant sales to increase by three to five percent this year.
Aeropostale—The apparel retailer earned an adjusted 1 cent per share for its latest quarter, compared to analyst forecasts of a 3 cents per share loss. Revenue came in above forecasts, but Aeropostale's current-quarter forecast is for a wider-than-expected loss due to weak mall traffic.
