These are the companies grabbing attention before trading kicks off.

Salesforce

  • The cloud software provider’s stocks fell 16% in the wake of weaker-than-expected revenues and projected earnings trailing Wall Street’s forecast. Revenue growth was at 11% in the first fiscal quarter, marking the first time since 2006 that Salesforce revenue has fallen short, per LSEG data. The company pointed to budget constraints and prolonged deal cycles during the quarter.

PayPal

  • The online payments platform saw a 2% hike following Mizuho’s upgrade to ‘buy’. Analyst Dan Dolev highlighted PayPal’s newly-introduced one-click checkout tool, Fastlane, as a potential boost for the stock.

Okta

  • Stocks of the access management company climbed nearly 5% post Evercore ISI’s upgrade to ‘outperform’ and an increased price target, drawing on Okta’s strong quarterly results as evidence of the company moving past its execution challenges.

Birkenstock

  • The shoe manufacturer’s stocks climbed 8% following its second-quarter earnings and revenue beat. The company also elevated its full-year revenue forecast to between €1.77 billion and €1.78 billion, exceeding its prior estimate of between €1.74 billion and €1.76 billion.

Best Buy

  • The electronics retailer stock rose by 1% after reporting fiscal first-quarter earnings of $1.20 per share, ahead of LSEG-predicted $1.08. However, Best Buy’s $8.85 billion revenue fell short of the $8.96 billion consensus.
