Take a look at some of Friday morning's early movers:

3M - The Dow component will contribute up to $1 billion in cash to its pension funds and retirement plans, as it deals with the effects of lower rates of return.

Gilead Sciences - The drug developer says some patients involved in a trial of a heptatis C treatment experienced a relapse within a month of finishing treatment. The study involved an experimental hepatitis C drug used in combination with the antiviral drug ribavarin.

General Mills - The food producer is cutting its fiscal year guidance to $2.53 - $2.55 per share, from the prior $2.59 - $2.61 and versus Street estimates of $2.60. The company blames weak sales volume across all its U.S. food categories.

Heinz - The company best known for ketchup reported quarterly profit of 95 cents per share, excluding certain items, 10 cents above estimates. Heinz's results were helped by strength in emerging markets.

Campbell Soup - The food maker reported second quarter profit of 64 cents a share, two cents above estimates. The company says it's making progress in its effort to stabilize U.S. profits in its soup business.
