Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Pfizer — The drugmaker missed estimates by a penny a share, with adjusted profit of 61 cents per share. Revenue was in line with estimates. Pfizer also lowered its full-year forecast, due to the discontinuation of a lipid-lowering drug that will shave an estimated four cents per share off current-quarter earnings.

Yum China Holdings — The former China unit of Yum Brands will begin trading today on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker "YUMC" following its separation from Yum.

Coach — The handbag maker matched estimates with adjusted quarterly profit of 45 cents per share. Revenue came in below forecasts. Coach did maintain its prior full-year forecast.

Archer Daniels Midland — The grain processor beat estimates by 13 cents a share, with adjusted quarterly profit of 59 cents per share. Revenue fell short of Street forecasts.

Wells Fargo — The bank agreed to pay $50 million to settle a case involving home appraisal feels for homeowners who had defaulted on their mortgages. A court must still approve the settlement.

Anadarko Petroleum — Anadarko lost 89 cents per share for its latest quarter, wider than the 57 cent loss forecast by analysts. Revenue was also below estimates, on the continuing weakness in energy prices.
