Yahoo Finance is tracking McDonald’s, Alphabet, General Motors, Chipotle and AT&T in intraday trading on Tuesday.

McDonald’s (MCD) – The fast-food giant reported better-than-expected earnings ahead of the bell Tuesday, posting earnings per share of $1.70 on revenue of $6.05 billion. McDonald’s global and U.S. same-store sales also beat estimates, driven by demand for the chain’s “signature-crafted” sandwiches and its national promotion for cold beverages.

Alphabet (GOOGL) – The Internet giant topped Wall Street earnings expectations, but the stock is under pressure after reporting that its cost of revenue jumped 28% during the quarter. Google’s parent company Alphabet reported earnings per share of $5.01 on revenue of $26.01 billion. Analysts were expecting a profit of $4.49 and sales of $25.65 billion.

General Motors (GM) – The automaker beat profit expectations ahead of the bell but missed on revenue. GM CEO Mary Barra touted the company’s performance during the quarter, saying in a statement, “Disciplined and relentless focus on improving our business performance led to a strong quarter and very solid first half of the year. We will continue transforming GM to capitalize on growth opportunities and deliver even more value for our shareholders.”

Chipotle (CMG) – The Mexican fast-food chain is scheduled to report second-quarter earnings after the bell this afternoon. Analysts are looking for a profit of $2.18 on revenue of $1.19 billion. Chipotle’s still struggling to lure back lost customers following its E.coli and norovirus outbreaks in 2015. The company also suffered a setback in those efforts last week after more than 135 customers reported getting sick last week after eating at one of Chipotle’s restaurants in Sterling, Virginia.

AT&T (T) – Analysts expect the telecom giant to report a profit of 74 cents a share on revenue of $39.83 billion. Investors will be looking for more information on AT&T’s $85.4 billion merger with Time Warner following reports from Bloomberg that the US antitrust officials have started talking to the two companies about securing approval for the deal.
