NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Facebook ( FB) shares dipped 1.77% to $20.02 in premarket trading after closing down 5.65% on Tuesday.

Shares of Apple ( AAPL), which is increasingly attractive to hedge funds according to the latest 13-F filings, crept up 0.08% to $632.20 before market open.

Groupon ( GRPN) shares, which plunged more than 27% on Tuesday following the company's mixed second-quarter results earlier this week, were flat at $5.51 before market open.

Cisco ( CSCO), which reports its fourth-quarter results after market close, slipped 0.12% to $17.15.

TheStreet will be live-blogging Cisco's fourth-quarter results, starting at 3:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.
