HP, NetApp, Facebook: Premarket Movers

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Hewlett-Packard (HPQ - Get Report) was a big winner in premarket trading on Thursday as investors responded to the No.1 PC maker's strong second-quarter results.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based firm brought in revenue of $30.7 billion and earnings of 98 cents a share, compared to sales of $31.6 billion and earnings of $1.24 a share in the same period last year. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were looking for sales of $29.92 billion and earnings of 91 cents a share.

HP on Wednesday also announced plans to cut 27,000 jobs, or 8% of its work force, by 2014. HP expects to save between $3 billion and $3.5 billion from the cuts by the end of fiscal 2014.

Shares of HP rose 8.4% to $22.85 before market open.

Storage specialist NetApp (NTAP - Get Report), which reported its fourth-quarter results after market close on Wednesday, was a big loser after issuing tepid first-quarter guidance. NetApp shares plunged 14.33% to $28.15. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company was also the most active Nasdaq stock on share volume of 2,446,554.

Facebook (FB - Get Report) was another active Nasdaq stock. Shares of the newly public social networker rose 1.78% to $32.57 on share volume of 721,452.

Apple (AAPL - Get Report) shares rose 0.67% to $574.39 on volume of 173,707.
