Finisar, PetSmart: After-Hours Trading (Update 1)

Updated from 5:33 p.m. ET to include latest share prices and information on Sotheby's Holdings.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Shares of Finisar (FNSR - Get Report) fell in late trades after the optical networking company fell short on the top line in its latest quarter and gave a below-consensus outlook.

Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Finisar reported non-GAAP earnings of $21.9 million, or 23 cents a share, in the three months ended Jan. 29, up slightly from an equivalent profit of $21.5 million, or 23 cents a share, in the second quarter ended in October. Revenue totaled $243 million in the latest quarter, up 0.6% from $241.5 million in the second quarter.

The average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters was for earnings of 22 cents a share in the third quarter on revenue of $245 million.

The stock was last quoted at $18.10, down 10.8%, on volume of nearly 730,000. Based on Wednesday's regular-session close at $20.29, the shares are down more than 40% in the past year.

Finisar also forecast non-GAAP earnings of 18 to 22 cents a share on revenue ranging from $235 million to $250 million for its fiscal fourth quarter ending in April. That view is below the current consensus estimate for a profit of 25 cents a share in the quarter on revenue of $253.5 million.

"Sales of datacom products were strong," said Jerry Rawls, the company's executive chairman, in a statement. "Gross margin was relatively unchanged from the preceding quarter, despite the impact of one month of the annual price reduction for telecom products. We held operating expenses below plan, so that operating income and operating margin increased relative to the preceding quarter."

The news was impacting shares of the other main optical networkers in the extended session with Ciena (CIEN - Get Report), down 2% to $14.60 on volume of more than 90,000; and JDS Uniphase (JDSU - Get Report), losing 2.5% to $12.70 on volume of nearly 100,000.

Shares of PetSmart (PETM) were weak after the bell as well despite a penny beat by the Phoenix-based pet products retailer in its latest quarter.

Amid a 5.5% increase in same-store sales, PetSmart reported fiscal fourth-quarter earnings of $102 million, or 91 cents a share, on sales of $1.64 billion, besting Wall Street's consensus view for a profit of 90 cents a share in the January-ended period on sales of $1.62 billion.
