Take a look at some of the biggest movers in the premarket:

Foot Locker (FL) – The athletic footwear and apparel retailer dropped 3.9% in the premarket after J.P. Morgan Securities downgraded it to “underweight” from “neutral,” pointing to cost pressures and tougher competition.

Under Armour (UAA) – Under Armour rose 2.5% in premarket trading after a Baird upgrade to “outperform” from “neutral.” Baird said the athletic apparel maker’s stock would benefit from a cyclical recovery in earnings.

Warner Music (WMG) – Warner Music slid 4% in premarket action following news of an 8.6 million share sale by affiliates of stakeholder Access Industries. Warner Music will not receive any proceeds from the sale.

Apple (AAPL) – Apple remains on watch after becoming the first U.S. company to exceed $3 trillion in market value, reaching that milestone on Monday before pulling back. Apple straddled the $3 trillion price of $182.86 per share during premarket trading.

Ford Motor (F) – Ford will start accepting purchase orders this week for its F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck. It had previously shut down its reservation system for the truck due to an overwhelming response. Ford added 1.4% in the premarket.
