OTLY is down 12.7% ahead of the bell, and 78.3% year-over-year.

  4. Baird and UBS both upgraded Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) to "buy" this morning, noting increased demand for its Genoa chip and upbeat cyclical trends for the industry. AMD is up 3.5% ahead of the open, but has shed 50.4% over the past 12 months.
  5. The New York Federal Reserve's one- and five-year inflation expectations are due out today.
