ViacomCBS (VIAC) – ViacomCBS rose 1.2% in premarket trading after its quarterly earnings matched estimates and revenue came in better than expected. Results got a boost from strength in the company’s streaming and TV businesses.
Moderna (MRNA) – Moderna tumbled 12.1% in premarket action, following quarterly shortfalls in both earnings and revenue as well as a cut in the drug maker’s full-year earnings outlook. Moderna earned $7.70 per share for its latest quarter versus the $9.05 consensus estimate.
Wayfair (W) – The online home goods seller slid 4.4% in the premarket after it reported an unexpected quarterly profit but saw revenue fall below analyst forecasts. Wayfair noted that spending has started to transition toward brick-and-mortar stores post-pandemic and it may take a few quarters for its growth to return to normal levels.

The Priceline parent earned an adjusted $37.70 per share, compared with the $32.90 consensus estimate, and investors so far are shrugging off the company’s cautionary comments about a Covid-19 resurgence in Europe.
Qualcomm (QCOM) – Qualcomm beat estimates by 29 cents with adjusted quarterly earnings of $2.55 per share, and the chip maker’s revenue also beat forecasts. Qualcomm also forecasts strong growth, driven by demands for 5G smartphone technology. Shares jumped 8.3% in premarket trading.
