NICE, Apple, Facebook: Tech Premarket

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- NICE Systems (NICE) was a big loser in premarket trading as investors digested the digital recording specialist's second-quarter results, released before market open on Wednesday.

The Israeli firm reported revenue of $216.7 million, a 10.2% hike on the prior year's quarter, but below Wall Street's forecast of $221.32 million. Excluding items, NICE earned 57 cents a share, up 14% on the same period last year, and in-line with analysts' estimates.

NICE, however, lowered its full-year revenue guidance, citing macroeconomic headwinds which are causing delays in deal closures.

The company's shares slumped 10.33% to $32.28 in premarket trading.

Facebook (FB), which hit a new all-time low on Tuesday, slipped 0.92% to $21.51 on Wednesday. Shares of the social networker are off more than 42% since its debut as a public company in May.

The Menlo Park, Calif.-based firm was also one of the most active premarket Nasdaq stocks on share volume of 254,940.

With rumors continuing to swirl around a possible iPhone 5 launch in September, Apple (AAPL) shares gained 0.92% to reach $616.40 before market open. The tech giant was also another active premarket stock on share volume of 170,336.

Sirius XM (SIRI), which reports its second-quarter results next week, was up 0.46% to $2.17 on share volume of 126,527.
