Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Priceline Group — The travel website operator reported adjusted quarterly earnings of $12.63 per share, beating estimates of $11.80. Revenue also exceeded forecasts, helped by a surge in hotel room bookings.

Garmin — The maker of GPS devices and wearable fitness products trounced estimates by 26 cents, with adjusted profit of 74 cents per share. Revenue also came in well above Street forecasts, though it was lower than a year earlier due to a decline in Garmin's automotive segment.

Bloomin' Brands — The parent of Outback Steakhouse and other restaurant chains beat estimates by a penny with adjusted quarterly profit of 30 cents per share, though revenue fell slightly shy. The company also raised its quarterly dividend to 7 cents per share from 6 cents, and said it is taking the necessary steps to enhance its domestic business.

Kinder Morgan — The pipeline operator among the new investments made by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway. Berkshire owned about 26-½ million shares as of December 31, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

Campbell Soup — Campbell said it expected to report fiscal second quarter profit of 87 cents per share, well above consensus forecasts of 71 cents. The food company also raised its 2016 earnings guidance, helped by cost cuts.

Restaurant Brands International — The company reported quarterly profit of 35 cents per share, beating estimates by 6 cents, and revenue was also above forecasts. The operator of the Burger King and Tim Hortons restaurant chains benefited from strong sales growth at both.

Host Hotels — The hotel operator earned 22 cents per share for its latest quarter, 6 cents above estimates, though revenue fell short of forecasts. Host saw same-hotel revenue per available room rise 3.2 percent during the quarter, and sees a 2016 increase of 3 to 4 percent on a constant currency basis.

T-Mobile US — The mobile operator beat estimates on both the top and bottom lines, with profit nearly tripling from a year earlier as aggressive promotions helped it add more customers.

Cerner — Cerner beat estimates by 4 cents with adjusted quarterly profit of 61 cents per share, with revenue slightly above forecasts. However, the provider of health care information technology gave an earnings forecast for the current quarter that was short of forecasts, following weaker than expected fourth quarter bookings.

Comerica — Comerica reduced its previously reported 2015 fiscal year and fourth quarter results, due to irregularities with a $26 million loan. The regional bank trimmed its reported yearly earnings to $2.84 per share from the previously announced $2.92.

Devon Energy — Devon came in 7 cents above estimates with adjusted quarterly profit of 77 cents per share, although revenue missed by a substantial margin. The oil producer also slashed its quarterly dividend by 75 percent to 6 cents per share, and cut its exploration spending by 75 percent as well. Lower oil prices are also prompting the company to cut 20 percent of its staff.

Express Scripts — The company matched estimates with adjusted quarterly profit of $1.56 per share, but revenue was shy of forecasts. The pharmacy benefits manager also gave guidance for the current quarter that falls below Street estimates, as the company deals with what it calls "constant challenges" in the evolving health care marketplace.

Fossil — Fossil came in 16 cents above estimates with quarterly profit of $1.46 per share, while the watch and jewelry maker also scored a sizeable beat in revenue and gave 2016 sales guidance above estimates. The upbeat outlook comes despite the negative impact of a strong dollar, with the company noting growth in online sales among positive factors.
