Stocks to Watch: Green Mountain, Pegasystems

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- K-Cup king Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) missed Wall Street's revenue expectations by a wide margin with its fourth-quarter results.

Despite growing the top line by more than 90% on a year-over-year basis, Waterbury, Vt.-based Green Mountain's revenue total of $711.9 million for the quarter was more than 6% below the average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters for revenue of $760.5 million.

Shares were plunging 30% to $47.35 in premarket trading Thursday.

Cambridge, Mass-based business software maker Pegasystems (PEGA - Get Report) reported third-quarter adjusted earnings that were less than half of what Wall Street was looking for.

The company posted a non-GAAP profit of $6 million, or 15 cents a share, for the period on revenue of $95.5 million, up 6% year-over-year. The average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters was calling for earnings of 31 cents a share in the quarter on revenue of $111.3 million.

Shares were plummeting 18% to $30.25.

Cisco (CSCO - Get Report) beat Wall Street's expectations for its first-quarter on Wednesday, although the Dow component's adjusted profit dropped slightly on a year-over-year basis amid sluggish corporate spending.

The tech bellwether posted non-GAAP earnings of $2.3 billion, or 43 cents per share, for the quarter, a dip from its year-ago equivalent profit of $2.4 billion, or 42 cents per share.

Revenue rose 4.7% year-over-year to $11.3 billion.

Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were looking for earnings of 39 cents a share and revenue of $11.03 billion in the period.

Shares were gaining 7% to $18.80.
