Health care giants were mixed pre-bell Thursday.

Early movers include:

(+) Mallinckrodt (MNK), which is edging higher despite slumping Wednesday after S&P Global Ratings slashed its rating on the company to CCC from B+ due to heightened risk of a distressed exchange over the next year, prior to any large settlement of opioid claims, and with negative outlook.

(-) T2 Biosystems (TTOO), which was over 4% lower pre-bell despite Janney lifting the company's rating from buy from neutral, and changing the company's fair value estimate to $6 from $2 on HHS grant and a new credit agreement.
