DR Horton — The home builder earned 93 cents per share for its fiscal second quarter, 7 cents a share above estimates. Revenue also beat forecasts, however the company gave a softer-than-expected full-year forecast, partly due to rising costs.
Facebook — Facebook reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.89 per share, compared to the $1.63 a share consensus estimate. Revenue also beat forecasts.
