Premarket Movers Thursday - Roku, Moderna, Qualcomm

Stocks moving in premarket trading include Qualcomm, Roku, Moderna, Qorvo and Capri Holdings.

Stock futures edged higher Thursday after the U.S. central bank said it would reduce its substantial support and scale back bond purchases but did not signal an interest rate hike in the near term.

Here are some of the top movers ahead of the opening bell Thursday.

1. Qualcomm QCOM | Up 11%

Shares of Qualcomm  (QCOM) - Get Qualcomm Inc Report jumped after the chipmaker and key Apple  (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. Report supplier forecast robust growth in the holiday quarter. The report reflects surging demand for 5G smartphones in the face of supply-chain constraints.

"We continue to see incredibly strong demand across all our technologies as the current environment is accelerating the scale of connectivity and processing at the edge," Chief Executive Cristiano Amon told investors on a conference call late Wednesday.

3. Roku ROKU | Down 7.1%
