  3. Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is set to open up 0.4% at $226.60, after the automaker removed the terms "autopilot" and "self-driving" from its Chinese website, following accusations from a Chinese consumer that misleading advertising had contributed to a wreck. However, a Tesla spokesperson said the company has "been in the process of addressing any discrepancies across languages for weeks," and that "timing had nothing to do with recent events or articles."
  4. Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) is poised to jump 2% at the open, as rumors swirl that the social media stock will be partnering with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to bring the Twitter app to Apple TV. A deal could allow Apple TV users to live-stream National Football League (NFL) Thursday night games. 
  5. American Eagle Outfitters (NYSE:AEO) is set to open up 5.7% at $20 -- a new three-year high -- following an upgrade to "buy" from "hold" by Deutsche Bank, which also hiked AEO's price target to $22 from $17.
