Check out which companies are making headlines after the bell on Thursday:

Shares of Amazon fell more than 4 percent in extended trading Thursday as more than 1.2 million shares changed hands. The company posted third-quarter earnings per share of 52 cents on revenue of $32.71 billion on Thursday. Analysts expected the online retail giant to post earnings of 78 cents a share on revenue of $32.69 billion.

The e-commerce giant saw $18.87 billion in North America sales during the quarter. That figure comes in below analyst expectations for $19.09 billion, according to FactSet. International sales, however, came in at $10.61 billion, above Wall Street projections for $10.44 billion, according to FactSet.

Alphabet's stock ticked up nearly 1 percent after the bell. The company reported quarterly earnings that topped analysts' estimates and revenue that beat expectations on Monday, and announced a more than $7 billion stock buyback authorized this month.

Baidu shares fell more than 1 percent after its mixed earnings report. The company posted third-quarter adjusted earnings per share of RMB 8.51 (about $1.25) and revenues of RMB 18.25 billion (about $2.7 billion). The Chinese search provider said its mobile search monthly active users were 660 million for September 2016, an increase of 3 percent year-over-year. The company projected fourth-quarter revenues ranging from RMB 17.84 billion (about $2.63 billion) to RMB 18.38 billion (about $2.71 billion).

LinkedIn shares rose slightly after the bell. With its soon-to-be parent company waiting in the wings, LinkedIn reported quarterly earnings and revenue that beat analysts' expectations on Thursday. The social media company posted profit of $1.18 a share ex-items on revenue of $960 million.

The social-company is still in the process of being acquired by Microsoft in a $26.2 billion cash deal for $196 per share. Antitrust regulators in the United States, Canada and Brazil have already approved the deal. Microsoft filed for EU approval earlier this month, and hopes for the transaction to close prior to the end of 2016.
