Eli Lilly (LLY) – The drugmaker's shares lost 1.7% in premarket trading, after falling 2 cents a share shy of estimates, with quarterly earnings of $1.87 per share.

Stellantis (STLA) – Stellantis raised its full-year profit margin outlook after the automaker reported strong first-half financial results, boosted by record margins in North America.
