Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:
New York Times (NYT) – The newspaper publisher’s shares jumped 3.9% in the premarket after it beat estimates by 3 cents with an adjusted quarterly profit of 23 cents per share. Revenue also beat estimates amid rising advertising and digital sales.
CVS Health (CVS) – The drug store operator and pharmacy benefits manager beat estimates by 19 cents with adjusted quarterly earnings of $1.97 per share and revenue topping Wall Street forecasts as well. Results got a boost from increased demand for Covid testing and vaccinations.
Humana (HUM) – The health insurer reported adjusted quarterly earnings of $4.83 per share, beating the consensus estimate of $4.66, while revenue beat Street forecasts on strength in Humana’s Medicare Advantage business.
Capri Holdings (CPRI) – The company behind the Michael Kors and Versace brands saw its stock surge 9.9% in premarket trading, after beating earnings and revenue estimates for its latest quarter. Capri earned an adjusted $1.53 per share, well above the consensus estimate of 95 cents, and also raised its full-year outlook.
Tupperware (TUP) – Tupperware plummeted 16.8% in the premarket, as sales for the food storage products company came in well below Wall Street forecasts. The company points to persistent negative impact from the pandemic, among other factors.
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) – The cruise line operator’s stock slid 2.6% in the premarket after it reported a wider-than-expected loss and revenue that fell short of analyst estimates.

Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) – Bed Bath & Beyond rocketed 57.3% higher in premarket action after announcing an in-store partnership with Kroger (KR) and said its share buyback program was proceeding ahead of schedule. The buying spree was spurred by that positive news, combined with the fact that the housewares retailer’s stock is one of the most heavily shorted on Wall Street.
Mondelez International (MDLZ) – Mondelez beat estimates by a penny with adjusted quarterly earnings of 70 cents per share, with the snack maker’s revenue beating forecasts as well.

Lyft (LYFT) – Lyft shares surged 12.5% in premarket trading, after reporting earnings of an adjusted 5 cents per share for its latest quarter, compared to an expected loss of 3 cents per share.
