Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:
Newmont (NEM) – The mining company’s stock slid 3.3% in premarket trading after it reported lower-than-expected second-quarter earnings. Profit was down nearly 41% from a year ago, hurt by a drop in gold prices.
Squarespace (SQSP) – The e-commerce platform provider tumbled 14.4% in the premarket after its full-year revenue guidance fell short of Street forecasts. Squarespace reported better-than-expected results for its latest quarter but said revenue is taking a hit from currency headwinds.
Philips (PHG) – Philips tumbled 10.4% in premarket trading after the Dutch medical equipment maker’s quarterly earnings fell short of analyst forecasts. Philips was affected by lockdowns in China and supply chain issues.

Public Storage had been the largest shareholder in PS Business Parks, whose sale transaction closed last week.
JD.com (JD) – Morgan Stanley calls the Chinese e-commerce company a “catalyst driven idea”, helping its stock rise 2% in premarket trading. The firm thinks the catalyst could be better than expected revenue growth guidance when JD.com next reports earnings in August.
