Brocade, Bank of Ireland: Early Volume Plays

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Brocade (BRCD) was one of several stocks trading near $5 were poised to move on above-average volume Friday after the networking solutions company reported quarterly results.

Brocade said late Thursday that it had a second-quarter adjusted profit of 13 cents a share, which was a penny above expectations. However, revenue of $501 million was down 1% from the year-ago quarter and was below the $503.16 million consensus target.

Following the company's results, Goldman Sachs downgraded the firm's rating on Brocade to neutral from buy.

Brocade shares plummeted by 52 cents, or 8.9%, to $5.35 in Friday's premarket session. The 50-day average daily volume for Brocade is 18.61 million, according to the Nasdaq.

The three-month average daily volume for Navios Maritime Holdings is 775,000, according to Yahoo! Finance.

Bank of Ireland (IRE) shares continued to plunge, falling by 61 cents, or 10.7%, to $5.09 in the premarket session Friday after falling more than 18% Thursday.

On Thursday, Bank of Ireland said its shareholders approved a €3.5 billion capital-raising program. The three-month average daily volume for Bank of Ireland is 2.07 million.
