Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:
Lowe's – The home improvement retailer's stock was upgraded to "buy" from "hold" at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, which sees the potential for earnings acceleration in general and especially in relation to rival Home Depot.
Vail Resorts – The resort operator lost $2.07 per share for its latest quarter, less than the $2.24 per share that analysts were expecting. Revenue, however, came in below Street forecasts. Vail said its just-completed fiscal year suffered from historically poor winter conditions, but that it has momentum going forward thanks to strong season pass sales.
Tesla — CEO Elon Musk was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission for alleged fraud, with the commission seeking to remove him from his job. Musk was accused of making false and misleading statements about potentially taking Tesla private. In a statement, Musk called the action "unjustified" and the automaker's board said it had full confidence in him.
