Check out the companies making headlines midday Thursday:
Dunkin' Brands – Shares of the restaurant operator dropped nearly 3 percent after the company reported revenue that missed estimates. Bad news also came from its U.S. comparable sales, which were flat compared to a consensus Refinitiv estimate of a 1.6 percent gain. For quarterly earnings, Dunkin' Brands beat estimates by three cents.
Chipotle Mexican Grill – Chipotle stock surged a whooping 11 percent after the restaurant chain reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.72 per share, beating the consensus estimate of $1.37. Chipotle benefited from increased customer traffic during the quarter and a spike in online orders.
Sonos – Shares of the audio company dropped almost 12 percent after the company announced that CFO Michael Giannetto plans to retire. While Giannetto will be around until Sonos finds a successor, his loss comes as the company's growth in Europe is slowing.
SunTrust – Shares of SunTrust jumped more than 8 percent following the announcement that BB&T is combining with the bank in a $66 billion merger of equals, the biggest bank deal since the financial crisis. The combined bank will become the sixth largest U.S. bank by assets, squeezing in between U.S. Bancorp and PNC.
Twitter – Twitter stock fell nearly 10 percent provided a weaker-than-expected forecast for 2019, with first quarter-revenue growing less than analysts estimated. Twitter also said it will change the way it reports active user data.
