Cisco Earnings: Live Blog

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- With its second-quarter earnings report, Cisco (CSCO - Get Report) didn't exactly evade those turbulent "air pockets" that led to its weak guidance last quarter. While Cisco posted better-than-expected sales and EPS Wednesday, it fell short with what analysts wanted to see in terms of gross margin and guidance.

The networking giant brought in revenue of $10.4 billion and earned 37 cents a share, compared to $9.8 billion and 40 cents a share in the same period last year. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters had forecast sales of $10.24 billion and earnings of 35 cents a share.

Cisco reported a gross margin of 62.4%, below the consensus call of 63.3% and below the 65.6% reported in the year-ago period.

As he did last quarter, Cisco CEO John Chambers noted weakness in the public sector; that and the low-end guidance helped pushed the networking giant's share price down 8.58% to $20.15 in extended trading Wednesday.
