Micron Technology (MU) – Micron reported adjusted quarterly earnings of $ 2.42 per share, 9 cents above estimates, with the chipmaker’s revenue also beating Street’s forecasts.

Eli Lilly (LLY) – The drugmaker’s stock rose 2.2% in pre-trading hours after Citi upgraded it from neutral to buy. Citi points to the valuation after the share price fell more than 15%, as well as the above-average earnings outlook for Lilly after a recent meeting with management.
