Tech Stocks in Motion

Jacada, a business software provider, said the agreement would not materially affect first-quarter results. The unidentified telecom company plans to implement Jacada's Fusion product into its call centers, which will help the telecom improve productivity and efficiency. Jacada said the telecom provider chose it after a successful pilot program that was initiated during the fourth quarter of 2004. Shares traded up 55 cents to $2.54.

Analysts polled by Thomson First Call expected earnings of 3 cents a share on sales of $56.4 million. A year ago, the company earned 25 cents a share on sales of $54.8 million. Looking ahead, the maker of Internet-based employee training courses expects fiscal 2006 earnings of $8 million to $13 million, or 8 cents to 12 cents a share, on sales of $200 million to $206 million. Analysts are expecting earnings of 14 cents a share on sales of $201.6 million. Shares traded up 32 cents to $3.60.

Shares of Network Equipment Technologies (NWK) fell 14.5% after the company said it expects to post a fourth-quarter loss on lower-than-expected sales. The networking equipment company expects a loss of 15 cents to 20 cents a share on sales of $23 million to $24 million. Previously, the company said it would post sales of $28 million to $32 million.

Previously, it forecast earnings of 9 cents to 12 cents a share on sales of $335 million to $350 million. Analysts had been expecting earnings of 11 cents a share on sales of $340.4 million.
