Allbirds (BIRD) – The sneaker maker’s shares dived 11.8% in the premarket after it cut its full-year forecast, with the company saying external headwinds could pressure consumer spending in the back half of 2022.

Micron Technology (MU) – The chip maker said it expected negative free cash flow for the current quarter, as well as declines in revenue and profit margins. Chip shipments are falling due to weakening demand from PC and video game companies. Micron lost 3.7% in premarket action.
