NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Wall Street was in a foul mood following the release of Krispy Kreme's (KKD - Get Report) second quarter earnings after the market closed on Friday. Shares fell 15% on eight times normal average volume Friday after the company reported earnings per share of 14 cents, 2 cents below consensus estimates.It didn't seem to matter that revenue, which was up 10.4% from the same quarter last year to $112.7 million, came in better than the $111.4 million consensus. As a former Bloomberg colleague was fond of saying, "when you miss on earnings, Wall Street takes you out back and shoots you."
