Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:
FedEx—The company earned $2.01 per share for its third quarter, beating estimates by 14 cents a share. Revenue was just slightly below estimates, as was the company's full-year guidance, but its commentary was generally upbeat and analysts have pointed out that FedEx guidance tends to be on the conservative side.
General Mills—The cereal and food producer reported adjusted quarterly profit of 70 cents per share, 3 cents above estimates, with revenue also beating Street consensus. The company said it expects to continue "strong growth" during the current quarter.
Oracle—The business software maker reported in-line quarterly profit of an adjusted 68 cents per share, although revenue fell below Street estimates. Oracle also raised its quarterly dividend by 25 percent to 15 cents per share.
Adobe Systems—The software firm reported an adjusted quarterly profit of 44 cents per share, beating estimates by 5 cents, while revenue was slightly above forecasts. Adobe did see a less-than-expected increase in subscribers to its Adobe Cloud service, although that was still 28 percent above a year ago.
Microsoft—A blog post by Microsoft EVP Terry Myerson said Windows 10 will be available to consumers "this summer."

Pandora—CRT Capital upgraded Pandora to "buy" from "fair value," based in part on more favorable content cost scenarios.
Checkpoint Systems—The maker of point-of-sale systems told an investor conference that its revenue will be pressured going forward, but that it also expects expansion of profit margins to continue.
Kraft Foods—Kraft recalled 242,000 cases of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, saying they could contain pieces of metal.
