These stocks were poised to make moves Friday:

Palo Alto Networks

(PANW) has taken the unusual step of scheduling its quarterly earnings release for after the close of trading Friday. As Eric Savitz of Barron’s noted, companies rarely announce earnings, or any other significant financial news, on Friday afternoons, especially during the summer.
