  • Railway operator CSX CSX 1.25% jumped 2% premarket after it said profit more than doubled in the second quarter.
  • Las Vegas Sands LVS 3.43% said losses narrowed in the second quarter as revenue recovered from last year’s more restrictive measures to limit the spread of Covid-19, but market players are still taking their bets off the table. Its shares were down 2.5%.
  • Airbnb ABNB 2.32% shares are up 1.7% premarket. CEO Brian Chesky told Barrons that he sees the “travel rebound of the century,” even as Covid-19 cases jump.
  • Equifax EFX -0.60% raised its projections for the year as it sees broad-based revenue growth across all its segments. Market watchers greeted the news with a yawn: Shares were flat premarket.
  • Appliance maker Whirlpool WHR 1.91% lifted its guidance but said it will spend $1 billion more on raw materials this year as inflation hits corporate balance sheets. Its shares slipped 0.4%.
  • Intel, INTC 1.79% Twitter TWTR 2.36% and Snap SNAP 1.70% are set to report earnings after markets close. In Intel’s case, an earnings drop could be in the cards amid a global chip shortage.
