Take a look at some of the biggest movers in the premarket:
Zoom Video Communications (ZM) – Zoom tumbled 11.5% in the premarket after the videoconferencing company cut its full-year forecast.

Zoom’s CFO said the company is having some difficulty attracting new, paying subscribers, although he added that enterprise sales are strong.
Palo Alto Networks (PANW) – Palo Alto rallied 9.3% in premarket trading after the cybersecurity company reported better-than-expected quarterly results and issued an upbeat forecast. Palo Alto also announced its board of directors had approved a 3-for-1 stock split.

Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS) – The sporting goods retailer beat top and bottom line estimates for the second quarter and raised its full-year forecast.
