Among the companies with shares expected to actively trade in Monday's session are Mattel Inc. (>> Mattel, Inc.), Endocyte Inc. (>> Endocyte, Inc.) and Citigroup Inc. (>> Citigroup Inc.)

Mattel's first-quarter profit fell 53% on expenses tied to the toy maker's purchase of HIT Entertainment and as an increase in demand overseas couldn't offset a decline in the mature North American market. Shares slid 6.2% to $32.03 in recent premarket trading as the top line results missed Wall Street's expectations for the second consecutive quarter. Shares of rival toy maker Hasbro Inc. (>> Hasbro, Inc.), which is due to report results next week, dropped 5.3% to $34.25.

Merck & Co. (>> Merck & Co., Inc.) has agreed to pay $120 million upfront to Endocyte, with additional payouts of up to $880 million, to develop and market the experimental cancer drug vintafolide as the drug maker looks to bring more drugs to market. Endocyte's shares more than doubled premarket, rising 111% to $8.

Citigroup's first-profit remained virtually flat from a year earlier at $2.9 billion, through revenue particularly from equity and debt capital markets operations improved from the fourth-quarter. Shares of Citigroup rose 2.1% to $34.10 premarket.

Baxter International Inc. (>> Baxter International Inc.) and Halozyme Therapeutics Inc. (>> Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc.) received a Food and Drug Administration request for additional information related to the long-term use of their investigational product called HyQ. Shares of Halozyme tumbled 20% to $9 premarket, while Baxter's shares traded down 2.6% to $56.51.

Mark Cuban has taken a 7.4% stake in video ringtone maker Vringo Inc. (VRNG), a disclosure that comes a day after the billionaire made an investment in another applications maker. Shares jumped 22% to $3.71 premarket

The California state appeals court overturned a ruling against Boeing Co. (BA) that had awarded $603 million to ICO Global Communications Ltd., now known as Pendrell Corp. (>> Pendrell Corp), in a 2008 lawsuit over allegations Boeing breached a contract to build a world-wide satellite-communications network. Pendrell shares fell 38% to $1.35 premarket.

Bank of America/Merrill Lynch upgraded its stock-investment rating on Caterpillar Inc. (>> Caterpillar Inc.) to buy from neutral, saying recent pullback in stock price "presents an attractive entry point into a stock with a strong growth profile and high [free cash flow] yield at a discounted valuation." The firm said Caterpillar's low multiple "reflects a lot of macro-economic uncertainty," but the firm sees ongoing strength in North America, "stabilizing Europe & Asia, and better-than-expected progress in execution turnaround." Caterpillar's shares traded up 1.7% to $107.65 in recent premarket trading.

Dreams Inc. (>> Dreams, Inc.) said it has signed a definitive merger agreement with Fanatics Inc., an online seller of licensed sports products. Under the agreement Fanatics will acquire all the outstanding shares of Dreams, a technology-driven multi-channel retailer, for $3.45 per share in cash.
