Check out the companies making headlines after the bell Thursday:

Shares of Amazon plummeted in extended trading, after the company posted a big earnings miss for the holiday quarter. The Internet retail giant reported Thursday fourth-quarter net income of $1 per share on $35.75 billion in sales, missing the $1.56 per share on $35.93 billion in revenue expected by a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters.

Still, there was a bright spot in the report: Amazon Web Services, which dominates the cloud-computing industry saw its sales rise to $2.41 billion in the quarter, up 69 percent from the previous year and beating estimates.
