Shares of Toro Co. /zigman2/quotes/206874474/composite TTC -1.13% rose 0.6% in premarket trading Thursday, after the lawn care equipment company reported fiscal third-quarter profit and sales that rose above expectations, as strength in the residential business helped offset a miss in professional, and raised its full-year outlook as strong demand was expected to offset continued supply chain, inflation and labor pressures.
