Meanwhile, grocer Kroger Co (NYSE:KR) shares added 0.14% to US$21.06 after hours after its shares fell on Friday despite earnings meeting expectations, along with a slight sales beat.

The company also expects full year 2017 EPS (earnings per share) to be above the current estimate of between $1.98 and $2.00-$2.08 range.

US Insurance companies are in focus today as the impact from Hurricane Harvey and now Irma, which hit yesterday and is ravaging Florida, is being mulled by investors.

HCI Group Inc (NYSE:HCI) added 7.41% to $33.05 after hours, while Universal Insurance Holdings Inc (NYSE:UVE) added over 12% after hours. Heritage Insurance Holdings Inc (NYSE:HRTG) gained over 17% to $10.99 after hours.
