U.S. HOT STOCK FUTURES: HOT STOCKS TO WATCH

Among the companies with shares expected to actively trade in Friday's session are Molina Healthcare Inc. (MOH), McDonald's Corp. (MCD) and Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK). Medicaid health insurers Molina and Centene Corp. (CNC) said late Thursday they have won back business in Ohio after protesting their prior rejection for new contracts starting next year. The news came the same day Molina shares dropped 31% on its disclosure of problems with high medical costs in Texas, where both companies have a presence. Shares of Molina were up 19% to $21.20 premarket, while shares of Centene rose 11% to $36.48. McDonald's global same-store sales rose a slower-than-expected 3.3% in May as austerity measures in Europe pressured the world's largest fast-food chain's results. Shares were recently trading 2.8% lower at $85.95 premarket as Baird Equity Research was expecting a 4.5% increase in global sales from restaurants open at least 13 months. Chesapeake Energy plans to sell midstream assets in three separate transactions totaling more than $4 billion in cash, as the embattled natural-gas company struggles against mounting debt. The natural-gas company said it expects the divestitures to reduce previously budgeted capital expenses by around $3 billion over the next three years. Chesapeake's shares edged up 1.1% to $18.04 in recent premarket trading. Progress Software Corp. (PRGS) reported preliminary results for its fiscal second quarter that missed analyst expectations, noting uncertainty from customers, partners and employees about the company's restructuring efforts and weakness in the global economy hurt results. Shares were off 8.8% to $18.50 premarket. Francesca Holding Corp.'s (FRAN) fiscal first-quarter earnings more than doubled as the retailer's sales continued to strengthen and margins improved. Shares jumped 15% to $25.60 premarket as results topped the company's expectations and it raised its full-year outlook. ATP Oil & Gas Corp. (ATPG) said its recently appointed chief executive, Matt McCarroll, has resigned, effective Thursday, after the offshore explorer failed to reach a mutually agreeable employment agreement with Mr. McCarroll. Shares fell 17% to $4.86 premarket. Comtech Telecommunications Corp.'s (CMTL) fiscal third-quarter income dropped 57% as the maker of advanced communications systems saw a continued slide in revenue. Still, the results beat market expectations. Shares traded up 2% to $29.70 premarket. Cooper Cos.'s (COO) fiscal second-quarter earnings rose 55% amid broad sales growth in both its main businesses, though the results missed analysts' expectations. Shares dropped 6.3% to $75 premarket. CPI Aerostructures Inc. (CVU) said the company and some stockholders plan to offer an undisclosed number of common stock. Shares slipped 0.8% to $12.55 premarket. FleetCor Technologies Inc. (FLT) said stockholders plan to sell about 6.8 million shares. Shares fell 5.1% to $36.64 premarket. Watchlist: Cascade Corp.'s (CASC) fiscal first-quarter earnings fell 7.4% as the forklift-parts company posted higher expenses that overshadowed improved revenue and increased shipments. Chelsea Therapeutics International Ltd. (CHTP) said its corporate officers and directors have agreed to a 25% pay cut until data from the company's ongoing Phase III study of its Northera low-blood-pressure medication is available, part of a slew of cost-saving initiatives to help support the development of the company's lead drug candidate. Dunkin' Brands Group Inc. (DNKN) said it has named Chief Financial Officer Neil Moses as the coffee-and-doughnut chain's chief global-strategy officer. Exide Technologies' (XIDE) fiscal fourth-quarter loss narrowed as the company recorded lower restructuring and impairment charges. Forest City Enterprises Inc.'s (FCEA) fiscal first-quarter earnings fell 50% amid fewer gains on property sales and joint ventures. Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (GWR) named David A. Brown as its chief operating officer, replacing James W. Benz, who is retiring from the railroad company in the beginning of 2013. Moody's Investors Service lowered its ratings on wafer maker MEMC Electronic Materials Inc. (WFR) one notch further into speculative territory, pointing to financial distress in the company's solar operations. Piedmont Natural Gas Co.'s (PNY) fiscal second-quarter earnings rose 5.9% as the natural-gas distributor saw lower gas expenses make up for softer-than-expected revenue. Quiksilver Inc.'s (ZQK) fiscal second-quarter loss narrowed as the outdoor sports outfitter recorded fewer impairment charges and a smaller provision for income taxes. Thor Industries Inc.'s (THO) fiscal third-quarter profit rose 3.3% as the recreational-vehicle maker's sales strengthened, though margins narrowed. The company said an "elevated RV promotional environment" has thwarted further margin expansion. Viacom Inc. (VIAB, VIA) unveiled plans to offer $400 million in notes to raise funds for general corporate purposes. Write to Mia Lamar or Corrie Driebusch at mia.lamar@dowjones.com
