Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:

Boeing – Boeing lost an adjusted $5.82 per share for the second quarter, as it deals with issues related to the 737 Max grounding. The commercial aviation unit lost nearly $5 billion in the second quarter, but the defense and services units posted profits.

AT&T – AT&T matched Wall Street forecasts with adjusted quarterly profit of 89 cents per share, with revenue beating estimates. Growth in AT&T's wireless and media businesses helped make up for a loss of nearly one million pay-TV customers.

Caterpillar – The heavy equipment maker earned $2.83 per share from the second quarter, compared to a consensus estimate of $3.12 a share. Revenue, however, was essentially in line with Street forecasts.

UPS – UPS reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.96 per share, four cents above estimates, with revenue above forecasts as well. Separately, UPS said it would offer 7-day delivery beginning in 2020. That follows a similar move by rival FedEx, which had announced a 2020 launch of 7-day service in May.

Anthem – The health insurer came in 3 cents a share ahead of forecasts, with adjusted quarterly profit of $4.64 per share. Revenue also beat estimates  and Anthem increased its full-year guidance as it raises the lower end of is projected membership growth.

Hilton Worldwide – The hotel operated earned adjusted $1.06 per share for its latest quarter, 4 cents a share above estimates. Revenue also beat forecasts on steady travel demand in the U.S. Hilton raised its full-year earnings forecast, but also lowered the high end of its revenue per available room forecast range amid concerns about a slowing global economy.

VF Corp. – The apparel maker beat estimates by a penny a share, earnings an adjusted 30 cents per share for the quarter. Revenue also exceeded forecasts and the company raised its full-year outlook, on upbeat growth for its Vans sneakers and North Face clothing.

Snap – Snap lost 6 cents per share for its latest quarter, 4 cents a share less than analysts had anticipated. Revenue also topped forecasts, helped by its strongest user growth since it became a public company.

Texas Instruments – Texas Instruments beat consensus forecasts by 7 cents a share, with adjusted quarterly profit of $1.29 per share. The chipmaker's revenue came in above estimates as well. The stock is getting a boost from the results, especially in light of the company's previous warning about a slowdown in demand that may last for a few more quarters.

Visa – Visa reported adjusted quarterly profit of $1.37 per share, 5 cents a share above estimates. Revenue also beat consensus, helped by an overall boost in spending using Visa cards and highlighted by a nearly 9% jump in U.S. payment volume.

Chipotle Mexican Grill – Chipotle earned an adjusted $3.99 per share for its latest quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $3.76. The restaurant chain's revenue was also above estimates, and investors are especially encouraged by a much-stronger-than-expected 12% jump in same-restaurant sales.

iRobot – iRobot shares are under pressure after the Roomba robot vacuum cleaner maker said tariffs resulting from the trade dispute between the U.S. and China will weigh on company results throughout this year. iRobot cut its full-year earnings guidance to a range of $2.40-$3.15 per share from the prior $3.15-$3.40 per share.
