Check out the companies making headlines after the bell:
Shares of Amazon initially jumped 2% in extended trading Thursday before giving up those gains following the release of the e-commerce giant's strong first-quarter earnings. Jeff Bezos' company reported earnings per share of $7.09 on revenue of $59.70 billion. Wall Street expected earnings per share of $4.72 on revenue of $59.65 billion, according to analysts surveyed by Refinitiv.
Ford shares surged as much as 8% after hours Thursday after posting better-than-expected first-quarter earnings.

On an unadjusted basis, Ford's profit slid 34% from the year earlier. However, the demand for its popular pickups and SUVs in North America helped offset losses in China and South America.
