Heinz, Salesforce, Dell: Premarket Trading

(Story updated with Heinz earnings and premarket share price changes)
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Heinz (HNZ) shares were down 4 cents, or less than 1%, to $48.15 after it reported that second-quarter profit grew 8.5% to $251.4 million, or 78 cents a share, from $231.4 million, or 73 cents a share, the prior year. Sales fell by 1.2% to $2.61 billion. (CRM) shares have jumped 9% to $126.20 in premarket trading after the company projected fourth-quarter sales that topped analysts' forecasts. The company is targeting revenue of $447 million to $449 million vs. the $410.5 million consensus estimate.

Dell (DELL) rose 3% to $14.07 in premarket trading after the company said third-quarter net income surged by 144% to $822 million thanks to lower PC component costs and more post-recession IT upgrades. Adjusted earnings per share was 45 cents, which easily beat the consensus forecast. The company also raised its full-year earnings forecast.

Cisco's (CSCO) stock was up 1.2% to $19.85 after the company said it would buy back an additional $10 billion in common stock.

A-Power Energy (APWR) was down 4.5% to $5.90 in premarket trading as it postponed its third-quarter earnings call originally scheduled for Thursday without going into why. However, the company did say the postponement had nothing to do with accounting irregularities.
