Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Time Warner — Time Warner reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.25, above estimates of $1.09, with revenue also beating forecasts. The company's results were helped by strong numbers at its Warner Brothers and HBO units.

Michael Kors — The luxury goods seller earned an adjusted $1.01 per share for its latest quarter, 12 cents above estimates, and revenue also came in above analyst projections. Same-store sales fell 8.5 percent, but the majority of that fall was due to the impact of a stronger dollar.

Motorola Solutions — The maker of radio systems earned an adjusted 82 cents per share for its latest quarter, 9 cents above estimates, with revenue also scoring a beat. It was helped by the combination of higher sales and lower costs.

Lumber Liquidators — The flooring retailer lost 31 cents per share for its latest quarter, 13 cents wider than expected, with revenue also well below estimates. The embattled company — which suspended sales of China-sourced flooring following allegations about product quality — saw a nearly 15 percent drop in same-store sales. Separately, the company appointed board member John Presley as its new CEO, replacing interim CEO Thomas Sullivan.

Becton Dickinson — The medical products maker reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.94 per share, 4 cents above estimates, with revenue also beating Street forecasts. Its growth was helped by the acquisition of CareFusion.

Henry Schein — The provider of health care products and services earned $1.52 per share for its latest quarter, 5 cents above estimates, with revenue essentially in line. The company did trim the top end of its 2015 forecast, noting the negative impact of a strong dollar.

Regeneron — The drug maker beat estimates by 27 cents with adjusted quarterly profit of $3.47 per share, with revenue also above forecasts. The quarter was highlighted by a 65 percent increase in US sales of eye drug Eyelea.

Allergan — The drug maker reported adjusted quarterly profit of $3.48 per share, 30 cents above estimates, with revenue also beating analyst forecasts. Allergan saw strong year-over-year volume growth in most of its segments.

Tesla — The automaker reported an adjusted quarterly loss of 58 cents per share, 8 cents wider than expected. Revenue was essentially in line, but investors are more focused on an upbeat production outlook for the electric car maker.

CBS — CBS earned an adjusted 88 cents per share for the third quarter, 7 cents above estimates, with revenue slightly below forecasts. Lower ad sales and licensing fees pressured the company's top line results.

Etsy — Etsy matched Street estimates with a quarterly loss of 6 cents per share, with revenue also matching forecasts. The online crafts seller spent more money on marketing, but did add 900,000 active buyers during the third quarter.

Zynga — Zynga broke even on an adjusted basis for its latest quarter, better than the 1 cent per share loss analysts were expecting, and the online game producer also saw its revenue beat forecasts. However, Zynga saw a 27 percent drop in active users from a year ago, and its current quarter outlook is below Street forecasts. Separately, Chief Financial Officer David Lee resigned, and Zynga also said it would delay the launch of its new "Dawn of Titans" and "CSR2" games.

Groupon — Groupon reported adjusted quarterly profit of 5 cents per share, 3 cents above estimates, but the daily deals site operator saw revenue miss forecasts and it also issued weaker than expected fourth quarter guidance. It also announced co-founder Eric Lefkofsky was leaving the CEO position to return to the chairman's role, with Chief Operating Officer Rich Williams taking over as CEO.

Zillow — Zillow earned an adjusted quarterly profit of 7 cents per share, compared to forecasts for a 3 cent per share quarterly loss, and revenue came in slightly above estimates. The real estate website operator also adjusted its revenue outlook due to the completed sale of its Market Leader division.

Herbalife — Herbalife reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.28 per share, 23 cents above estimates, though revenue fell short of Street forecasts. However, the nutritional products maker did raise its full year guidance, which now falls largely above analyst forecasts.

Potbelly — Potbelly missed estimates by a penny with adjusted quarterly profit of 8 cents per share, with the sandwich shop operator's revenue in line. However, the company gave an upbeat 2016 profit outlook, with better than expected sales growth.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals — Valeant remains in the news, with investor Carl Icahn hinting at some level of interest in the embattled drug maker, although he was not specific. Icahn spoke at the New York Times DealBook conference.
