Check out the companies making headlines after the bell Thursday:
Applied Materials stock popped after the bell on Thursday. The world's largest maker of machinery used to make semiconductor chips, forecast higher-than-expected profit and revenue for the current quarter, sending its shares up more than 7 percent. The upbeat forecast overshadowed lackluster first-quarter results — both sales and profit fell during the period.
Shares of Nordstrom were down more than 5 percent in extended trading after the company reported lower-than-expected quarterly profits on Thursday. Nordstrom's net income fell to $180 million, or $1 per share, in the fourth quarter ended Jan. 30 from $255 million, or $1.32 per share, a year earlier. Unseasonably warm weather and heavy discounts hurt sales at many apparel retailers in the quarter ended January.
