Check out the companies making headlines midday Friday:
Netflix — Shares of the video-streaming giant fell 4 percent after issuing weaker-than-expected guidance for the first quarter of 2019. The company also posted lighter-than-expected revenue for the fourth quarter of 2018.
Schlumberger — Schlumberger's stock rose more than 8 percent and posted its biggest one-day gain since 2011. The jump came after the company issued upbeat guidance for 2019. CEO Paal Kibsgaard said in a statement Schlumberger expects "expect a more positive supply- and demand-balance sentiment to lead to a gradual recovery in the price of oil over the course of the year."
American Express — The Dow component fell on the back of disappointing quarterly results before recovering.

Analysts polled by Refinitv expected a profit of $1.80 per share and sales of $10.56 billion.
Boeing, Caterpillar — Shares of Boeing and Caterpillar rose 1.6 percent and 2.2 percent, respectively. The rise came after sources told CNBC that China has offered to boost U.S. imports for six years during ongoing trade talks.
Pilgrim's Pride, Sanderson Farms —The chicken producers rose more than 6.5 percent each. An analyst at Mizuho Securities cited the recent thawing in U.S.-China trade talks, noting: "The long-awaited reopening of the China market would be unquestionably good news for US producers as China is by far the largest (and virtually only) market for chicken byproducts (paws and wing tips)."
