NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Goldman Sachs (GS) was rising 1.7% to $156.32 in premarket trading Tuesday after earning $1.56 a share in the first quarter on revenue of $11.89 billion, well above analysts' earnings estimates of 82 cents a share and revenue forecasts of $10.22 billion.

The Milwaukee-based maker of water and gas meter products Badger Meter ( BMI) was plunging 11.4% to $33.55 after posting disappointing quarterly results with profits held back by weak orders, high copper prices and an unfavorable product mix.

Computer giant IBM ( IBM ) was falling 0.2% to $165.60 ahead of its expected first-quarter earnings report after the markets close Tuesday. Analysts are expecting earnings of $2.30 a share.

Internet company Yahoo! ( YHOO) was flat at $16.35 ahead of its first-quarter earnings report after the markets close. Analysts, on average, are expecting earnings of 16 cents a share, according to a Thomson Reuters survey.
