Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:
Hershey—The chocolate maker cut its 2015 forecast, based on chocolate sales growth in China that did not meet its expectations. Hershey expects adjusted full-year earnings of $4.10 to $4.18 per share, compared to consensus estimates of $4.31. Hershey also announced a series of productivity initiatives as well as some changes in its global leadership team.
Red Hat—The provider of Linux software reported adjusted quarterly profit of 44 cents per share, 3 cents above estimates. Revenue also beat forecasts, although its growth in future orders slowed from the prior year.

However, the gun maker's full-year outlook is largely below analyst forecasts, with handgun demand slowing back to more normal levels after a jump in recent years.
