Among the companies with shares expected to actively trade in Friday's session are DuPont Co. (DD), Finish Line Inc. (FINL) and Manitowoc Co. (MTW).

 

Amedisys Inc. (AMED) projected a surprise profit for its second quarter, helped by its cost-cutting plans. Amedisys, a hospice and at-home health-care company, had previously disclosed plans to close or consolidate care centers and general and administrative expenses. Shares rose 8.2% to $14.55 premarket.

 

AZZ Inc.'s (AZZ) fiscal first quarter earnings edged up as sales grew more than expected, though the galvanizing services segment recorded lower revenue from a year earlier. Shares climbed 4.7% to $44 in light premarket trading.

 

Anadigics Inc. (ANAD), a maker of radio frequency products for the wireless communications and broadband markets, will cut about 30% of its work force as part of a plan to reduce fixed costs for its legacy mobile business. Shares dropped 12% to 92 cents in light premarket trading.

 

DuPont cut its earnings forecast for the year, pointing to a weaker-than-expected performance in its agriculture business in the second quarter. Shares dropped 3.1% to $65.60 premarket.

 

Finish Line said its fiscal first-quarter profit more than doubled as sales and margins expanded, the latest example of sporting-apparel chains outperforming other retailers. Shares rose 5.3% to $30.69 in premarket trading as the results easily surpassed analysts' expectations.

 

Activist investor Relational Investors LLC disclosed an 8.5% stake in Manitowoc and called for the company to spin off its foodservice-equipment business. Shares surged 9.3% to $32.47 premarket.

 

Nike Inc. (NKE) said its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings rose 5.4%, helped by the sporting-gear company's broad revenue growth across almost all its main geographic markets. Shares edged up 2.6% to $78.87 premarket.
