Check out the companies making headlines after the bell:
Lyft – The ridesharing company’s stock fell more than 5% in extended trading after reporting fourth-quarter financial results that beat expectations but did not update its profitability timeline as competitor Uber did last week. Lyft has previously said it expects to be profitable by the fourth quarter of 2021. Lyft reported a loss per share of $1.19 while analysts expected a loss of $1.39 per share, according to Refinitiv. Revenue beat forecasts, as the company reported $1.02 billion while analysts expected $984 million.
Bed Bath & Beyond – The retail company’s stock plummeted 25% in extended trading after it announced preliminary guidance data for the first two months of the 2019 fourth quarter. Same-store sales fell 5.4% driven by the decline in-store traffic, the company said in the release. “We are experiencing short-term pain in our efforts to stabilize the business,” President and CEO Mark Tritton said in the announcement.
