Check out the companies making headlines after the bell Tuesday.
MetLife's stock was boosted after the bell Tuesday when it announced it plans to separate its U.S. life insurance unit — the largest in the country. That new spin-off would represent about 20 percent of MetLife's operating earnings as of September 30, 2015, the company said.
Shares of Yum Brands also ticked up after hours when the corporation behind Pizza Hut and Taco Bell announced a sales increase in its China division. December same-store sales — a closely followed metric in the industry— grew an estimated 1 percent year-over-year in China, the company announced Tuesday. The growth stemmed in part from a 5 percent same-store-sales increase for China's KFC locations. Sales declined for Pizza Huts in the region in December, the company said.
