Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:
United Technologies – The industrial conglomerate earned an adjusted $1.93 per share for the third quarter, 12 cents a share above forecasts. Revenue also beat forecasts, and the company raised its full-year earnings forecast. United Technologies is being helped by increased sales of aircraft parts as manufacturers push aircraft production to record levels.
Harley-Davidson – The motorcycle maker beat estimates by 15 cents a share, with profit of 68 cents per share. The company also beat on the top line. Harley's results were helped by improved European sales, and Harley maintained its full-year motorcycle shipment forecast. Separately, Harley announced a voluntary recall of about 238,000 units to address a possible issue with a hydraulic clutch assembly.
Verizon – Verizon earned an adjusted $1.22 per share for the third quarter, 3 cents a share above estimates. Revenue came in also above forecasts, as well. Its wireless operation saw better-than-expected subscriber additions.
3M – The diversified products manufacturer fell 12 cents a share short of estimates, with quarterly profit of $2.58. Revenue also came in shy of analysts' projections. 3M cut its full-year forecast, seeing increased headwinds from currency shifts.
Caterpillar – The heavy equipment maker came in 1 cent a share above estimates, earning an adjusted $2.86 per share for the third quarter. Caterpillar's revenue also beat forecasts and the company reiterated its prior full-year guidance, but that guidance falls short of consensus forecasts.
PulteGroup – The home builder came in 6 cents a share above estimates, with profit of $1.01 per share. Revenue also beat forecasts. PulteGroup's results were helped by tighter cost controls and a rise in sales.
Arconic – Arconic is the target of an $11 billion acquisition offer from Apollo Global Management, according to Reuters quoting people familiar with the matter. The offer values the aerospace and automotive components maker at between $23 and $24 per share, compared to Arconic's Monday closing price of $21.45.
