Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Foot Locker — Foot Locker came in 5 cents above forecasts with adjusted quarterly profit of $1 per share. Revenue was also above estimates, and a same-store sales increase of 8.7 percent was well above analysts' estimates of a 6.2 percent increase for the athletic apparel and footwear retailer.

Abercrombie & Fitch — The apparel retailer earned an adjusted 37 cents per share for its latest quarter, well above estimates of 22 cents. Revenue also beat estimates, and although Abercrombie's same-store sales fell 1 percent during the quarter, that was smaller than the 2.3 percent drop anticipated by analysts. Abercrombie benefited from fewer discounts, although it said it expected heavy promotional activity in the industry during the holiday shopping season.

Nike — The athletic apparel and footwear maker increased its dividend by 14 percent, declared a two-for-one stock split, and announced a $12 billion stock buyback program.

Alphabet — Alphabet's Google unit hired VMWare co-founder Diane Green to run its cloud operations. Green has been on the company's board of directors for the past three years, and will remain a director.

Gap — The apparel retailer reported adjusted quarterly profit of 63 cents per share, matching estimates. The company had pre-released its below-forecast revenue on November 9, noting the impact of a strong dollar. Gap is seeing weak sales at its Banana Republic and Gap clothing stores, but CEO Arthur Peck said he is expecting a significant improvement during 2016's first quarter.
