Take a look at some of the biggest players in the pre-market:
Walt disney (DIS) – Disney shares fell 3.9% in pre-market trading after growth figures from streaming service Disney + did not respond to Wall Street forecasts. Disney reported better-than-expected earnings for the first quarter, but revenue was below analysts’ expectations.
DoorDash (DASH) – DoorDash jumped 8.2% on pre-market after First quarter revenue exceeded analysts’ forecast, and the food delivery service raised its annual forecast for order value. First-quarter results were boosted by stimulus checks, although the company said those same checks were responsible for drivers working fewer hours.
