Here are some of the top movers during premarket trading on Thursday:

3. Ford - Up 4.4%

Ford  (F) shares rose after the automaker beat Wall Street's second-quarter earnings expectations and boosted its guidance despite a global semiconductor shortage that has dogged the auto industry. 

Ford raised its guidance for full-year adjusted earnings before taxes by about $3.5 billion, to between $9 billion and $10 billion.

4. Didi Global - Up 16%

Didi Global’s  (DIDI)  stock price surged on Thursday after The Wall Street Journal reported the Chinese ride-hailing giant was considering going private to placate Chinese regulators and compensate investors for losses.
