Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Accenture — The consulting firm earned $1.34 per share for its latest quarter, compared to estimates of $1.18. Revenue also beat estimates, and it raised its full-year forecast on strong growth for its consulting services.

Winnebago — The recreational vehicle maker earned 35 cents per share for its latest quarter, 2 cents a share above estimates, but revenue was shy of forecasts. The company did say it expects revenue to improve thanks to the success of new products and what it calls a "robust" backlog.

Finish Line — The athletic apparel retailer beat estimates by 3 cents with adjusted quarterly profit of 83 cents per share, and revenue beat Street forecasts, as well. The company said its results were helped by better supply chain management, among other factors.

Buffalo Wild Wings — Goldman Sachs added the restaurant chain's stock to its "conviction buy" list, saying risks related to sales and chicken wing prices are already priced in.

Wells Fargo — UBS is initiating coverage on the banking giant with a "sell" rating, noting that its valuation is on the high end and that there are risks to Wells Fargo's revenue growth and credit performance.

PVH Corp. — PVH reported an adjusted $1.52 per share profit for its latest quarter. That beat Street estimates by 6 cents a share, while the apparel maker's revenue was also slightly above analysts' projections. However, a strong dollar, cautious consumer spending, and more promotional activity is leading to a less than expected full-year forecast.

KB Home — KB Home reported quarterly profit of 14 cents per share, 3 cents a share above estimates, while the home builder's revenue was well above Street forecasts. KB Home also issued an upbeat full-year forecast, thanks to what it calls a "healthy" order backlog.

Staples, Office Depot — A judge criticized the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) tactics in its effort to prevent the takeover deal between the two office supplies retailers. The judge said the FTC pressured an executive for testimony that would favor its side of the case, but the FTC denies that anything improper was done.

YahooThe Wall Street Journal reports activist investor Starboard Value is now seeking to remove the entire Yahoo board, and that it will announce this morning its intention to nominate nine directors.

Raytheon — Raytheon raised its annual dividend by 9.3 percent, with the defense contractor upping the yearly payout to $2.93 per share from the prior $2.68 a share.

H.B. Fuller — Fuller beat estimates by 4 cents a share with adjusted quarterly profit of 43 cents per share, thought revenue was slightly shy of estimates. The specialty chemicals maker was helped by strong results in its engineering adhesives unit.

Barrick Gold — The company will have to face class action lawsuit in the U.S. involving claims that it misstated facts about a discontinued project on the Argentina/Chile border. A federal judge granted class action status Wednesday, covering shareholders who purchased the gold miner's shares between May 7, 2009 and November 1, 2013.

Exxon Mobil — Exxon Mobil must include a climate change resolution on its annual shareholder proxy, following a ruling from the Securities and Exchange Commission. The oil giant had argued against the proposal, saying it already provided sufficient disclosure on carbon emissions.

Apple — The company's Apple Pay mobile payment service will be integrated with its Safari web browser later this year, according to Re/code. That would allow its use on mobile websites, utilizing the fingerprint security technology on iPhones and iPads.
