Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:
Eli Lilly – The drugmaker reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.33 per share, falling a penny a share below estimates. Revenue beat forecasts as its newer drugs posted higher sales. Lilly also cut its full-year forecast relating to its pending acquisition of Loxo Oncology.
Aphria – The cannabis producer rejected a hostile takeover bid from rival Green Growth Brands, saying the bid significantly undervalues the company.
Humana – The health-care company earned an adjusted $2.65 per share for its latest quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $2.53 a share. Revenue also beat forecasts, and the company also raised its quarterly dividend to 55 cents from 50 cents. Humana's results were helped by lower costs for inpatient treatments.
Capri Holdings – The company formerly known as Michael Kors earned $1.76 per share for its latest quarter, beating estimates by 18 cents a share. Revenue came in slightly below Wall Street forecasts.
Walt Disney – Disney reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.84 per share, beating the consensus estimate of $1.55 a share. Revenue also came in above forecasts, with overall results boosted by the theme park business and improved results at ABC.
Snap – Snap lost 4 cents per share for its latest quarter, less than the 7 cents a share that analysts had forecast. The photo messaging app company saw revenue and user metrics also beat analysts' estimates.
Electronic Arts – Electronic Arts beat estimates by 1 cent a share, with adjusted quarterly profit of $1.95 per share. The video game publisher saw revenue fall below forecasts, however, on lower-than-expected sales for its new "Battlefield V" game, among other factors. The company cut its adjusted revenue forecast for the full year and noted intense competition within the industry.
Spotify – The music streaming service announced the acquisitions of podcasting companies Gimlet Media and Anchor for undisclosed amounts, as well as reporting its first quarterly operating profit.
3M – 3M announced a 6 percent dividend increase to $1.44 per share. The dividend will be payable March 12 to shareholders of record as of February 15.
Toyota Motor – Toyota reported slightly higher profit for its fiscal third quarter, as improved sales in Asia offset a decline in North America. The automaker cut its full-year profit forecast, however, due to investment losses.
Plantronics – Plantronics reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.36 per share, beating estimates by 17 cents a share. The maker of Bluetooth headsets also saw revenue beat Street forecasts.
Tableau Software – Tableau lost 3 cents per share for its fourth quarter, less than the 8 cents a share loss that analysts had expected. Revenue for the analytics software maker came in above Street forecasts, as well.
