Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:
Foot Locker (FL) – Foot Locker slid 3.6% in the premarket after the athletic footwear and apparel retailer said it expects global supply chain constraints to persist through this quarter. The slide comes despite a beat on both the top and bottom lines for Foot Locker's most recent quarter, as well as better-than-expected comparable store sales.
Dillard's (DDS) – The department store operator's stock added 3.2% in premarket trading after the company announced a $15 per share special dividend, payable on December 15 to shareholders of record as of November 29.
Farfetch (FTCH) – The online luxury fashion marketplace operator's shares plunged 21.4% in the premarket after it reported a narrower-than-expected quarterly loss and saw revenue fall short of Wall Street forecasts. The company also gave weaker-than-expected adjusted earnings guidance.
Applied Materials (AMAT) – Applied Materials came in a penny shy of estimates with adjusted quarterly earnings of $1.94 per share. The semiconductor equipment maker's revenue fell short of forecasts as well.

Palo Alto Networks (PANW) – Palo Alto shares jumped 3.9% in premarket trading, reversing initial losses that occurred after the cybersecurity firm gave weaker-than-expected full-year guidance.
