Sirius, Zynga, Apple: Tech Premarket

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Sirius XM (SIRI - Get Report) was a big mover in premarket trading on Thursday, gaining 2.17% to reach $2.83, after the company announced a $2 billion share repurchase and special cash dividend.

The satellite radio giant was also the most active premarket Nasdaq stock on share volume of 25,282,546.

Zynga (ZNGA - Get Report) was also a big mover before market open, gaining 7.76% to $2.50, after the company moved closer to the world of Real Money Games (RMG). On Wednesday, the social gaming specialist revealed that it has filed its application for a Preliminary Finding of Suitability from the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

"This filing continues our strategic effort to enter regulated RMG markets in a prudent way," said Barry Cottle, Zynga's chief revenue officer, in a statement emailed to TheStreet. "We anticipate that the process will take approximately 12 to 18 months to complete."

The San Francisco-based company was another active premarket Nasdaq stock on share volume of 1,484,550.

Vodafone (VOD) shares gained 0.97% to reach $25.92 early on Thursday, while Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) stock slipped 1.48% to $530.83.

In an interview with NBC's Brian Williams, which will air on Thursday, Apple CEO Tim Cook hinted at the company's television plans.

"When I go into my living room and turn on the TV, I feel like I have gone backwards in time by 20 to 30 years," Cook said. "It's an area of intense interest. I can't say more than that."
