BorgWarner (BWA) – The auto component maker reported quarterly earnings of $1.06 per share, well above the consensus estimate of 75 cents per share. Revenues also exceeded forecasts. BorgWarner’s full-year profit forecast, however, is below analysts’ estimates, despite an expected improvement in organic sales. BorgWarner was up 1% in premarket trading.
Marriott (MAR) – Shares of Marriott jumped 3% in the pre-market after the hotel operator beat high and low expectations for its latest quarter. Marriott earned $1.30 per share, 31 cents per share above estimates, as occupancy rates rose amid increased vaccinations.
Zoetis (ZTS) – Zoetis rose 2% in premarket trading on better-than-expected quarterly results. Zoetis beat estimates by 4 cents a share, with quarterly earnings of $1.00 a share, as improvements in its pet products business offset lackluster results in livestock product sales.
Tower Semiconductor (TSEM) – Intel (INTC) has announced an agreement to buy the Israeli chipmaker for $53 per share, or $5.4 billion, a 60% premium to Tower’s closing price on Monday.

Advance Auto Parts (AAP) – Advance Auto Parts beat estimates by 10 cents per share, with quarterly earnings of $2.07 per share. The auto parts retailer’s revenue also beat analysts’ forecasts. Advance Auto’s sales were higher than a year earlier, but profits were lower as it faced inflationary headwinds. Shares fell 1% in premarket action.
Avis Budget (CAR) – The company reported better-than-expected earnings and revenue for its latest quarter as increased rental activity and revenue per day helped offset higher expenses.

Popular software maker TurboTax, however, maintained its full-year guidance, suggesting the company thinks revenue has simply been pushed to a later quarter. Intuit fell 1% in premarket trading.
