Among the companies with shares expected to actively trade in Friday's session are Zipcar Inc. (ZIP), LinkedIn Corp. (LNKD) and OpenTable Inc. (OPEN).
Zipcar's second-quarter loss narrowed as the car-sharing operator reported higher sales, though the company conceded it is facing some challenges as new-member gains were under expectations and growth in the U.K. was tempered due to a weak local economy. Shares slipped 31% to $7.35 premarket and hit the lowest level since the company went public in April 2011, as Zipcar trimmed its revenue outlook for the year and said it brought in fewer new members than anticipated.
LinkedIn's second-quarter income fell 38% as higher expenses masked better-than-expected revenue growth. However, shares rose 9.4% premarket to $102.25 after the company again raised its revenue estimates for the year. Susquehanna notes LinkedIn's results avoided the fears about Internet companies in general posting weaker-than-anticipated revenue.
OpenTable's second-quarter earnings fell 9% as the restaurant reservations manager spent more on sales and marketing amid a relaunch of its toptable site in the U.K. Shares climbed 19% to $40.23 premarket as adjusted earnings topped the OpenTable's expectations and as the company raised its full-year guidance

The company's CEO said Skullcandy's investments in product development, gaming and direct distribution in Europe would pay off as the company launches new headphone styles in the back half of the year. Shares jumped 9.9% to $15.22 in premarket trading.

Exide Technologies (XIDE) posted a fiscal first-quarter loss that widened on a substantial valuation-allowance charge and lighter revenue. Shares sank 13% premarket to $2.50 premarket as Wall Street expected a quarterly profit and higher revenue.

Morgan to up its rating on the stock to Overweight from Neutral and price target to $100 from $88. Shares climbed 15% to $76.53 in premarket trading.
Molycorp Inc. (MCP) swung to a steep second-quarter loss as the rare-earth mining company's expenses soared, masking a small increase in sales as volume jumped higher though average selling prices declined.
