Chipotle’s shares also dipped in extended trade amid falling same store sales and increased regulatory scrutiny. The fast-casual dining chain beat Wall Street’s earnings expectations but missed slightly on revenue estimates as sales at established restaurants fell 14.6 percent in the fourth quarter. The Denver-based company also revealed that a recent food-safety scandal has become the subject of an expanded criminal probe by federal prosecutors in central California.

Edwards Lifesciences shares popped after the bell after the medical device maker posted quarterly earnings and revenue that topped analyst estimates at an adjusted 63 cents per share on sales of $671.1 million. Fellow healthcare firm Myriad Genetics, though, slipped after hours, despite reporting better-than-expected earnings and revenue and raising its full-year earnings guidance.
