Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Lowe's – The home improvement retailer reported adjusted quarterly profit of 74 cents per share, missing the 87 cent a share consensus estimate. Revenue beat forecasts, however, and comparable-store sales were up 4.1 percent versus a 3.1 percent consensus estimate. Lowe's said it was accelerating its strategic investments given a rapidly changing competitive environment.

Booking Holdings – The company reported adjusted quarterly profit of $16.86 per share, beating the consensus estimate of $14.12 a share. The company, formerly known as Priceline, also posted better-than-expected revenue, as gross bookings rose 19 percent versus the year before for both the fourth quarter and the full year.

Dick's Sporting Goods – The sporting goods retailer said it would no longer sell assault-style weapons, and that it would no longer sell any gun to anyone under the age of 21. CEO Edward Stack said the move is in direct response to the Parkland, Florida, school shooting earlier this month.

E.L.F. Beauty – The company topped consensus forecasts by 9 cents a share, with adjusted quarterly profit of 9 cents per share. The cosmetics seller's revenue missed forecasts. The company's revenue outlook also fell short of Street forecasts, pressuring the shares.

The deal is believed to be Amazon's second-biggest ever, trailing only last year's $13.5 billion purchase of Whole Foods.
