Mellanox Shares Plunge on Weak Guidance

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Mellanox (MLNX - Get Report) shares went into freefall after the company's third-quarter results, released after market close, plunging more than 23% on weaker-than-expected guidance.

The server and storage specialist reported revenue of $156.5 million, a massive hike from $68.2 million in the same period last year, and comfortably above analysts' forecast of $153.1 million.

Excluding items, Mellanox earned $1.37 a share, up from 34 cents a share in the same period last year. Analysts were looking for earnings of $1.13 a share.

For the fourth quarter, however, Mellanox expects revenue between $145 and $150 million, well below the consensus estimate of $157 million.

Mellanox, which competes with Broadcom (BRCM - Get Report), Emulex (ELX) and QLogic (QLGC - Get Report), predicts a slowdown in large deals during the fourth quarter.

The guidance pushed shares of Mellanox down 23.04% to $75.54 in extended trading.
