After-Hours Winners & Losers: Coldwater Creek Goes Frigid

It said profit. Now it says loss.

Coldwater Creek

(CWTR)

was among the losers in a generally mixed post-close session Thursday.

Shares plunged 15.4% after the women's-products retailer forecast a fiscal third-quarter loss of 11 cents to 13 cents a share on $260 million to $265 million in sales. In February, it had projected a profit on significantly higher revenue. Analysts are looking for earnings of 14 cents a share, before special items, on $300.2 million in sales.

As with many of its fellow retailers, the Sandpoint, Idaho-based company blamed its woes on declining store traffic as well as an "increasingly promotional environment." Fourth-quarter guidance was also slashed. Shares were sinking $1.67 to $9.20.

Californian wireless-products maker

CalAmp

(CAMP) - Get Report

, meanwhile, said it swung to a continuing-operations loss of 14 cents a share. That's in line with two analysts' targets, but revenue dwindled some 40% year over year to $32.7 million, coming in just shy of estimates. Shares tumbled 61 cents, or 14%, to $3.75.

Electronic Arts

(ERTS)

TST Recommends

of Redwood City, Calif., saw choppy trading after

agreeing to pick up two game development studios, BioWare and Pandemic by buying

VG Holding

from Elevation Partners. The deal, worth up to $620 million in cash and as much as $155 million in equity, should close in January. Shares of the video-game publisher were recently up 19 cents to $58.88.

Elsewhere,

Threshold Pharmaceuticals

(THLD)

halted enrollment in a midphase trial of lung-cancer treatment glufosfamide. The study yielded only one confirmed partial tumor response, said Threshold, falling short of the three-or-more threshold required for further enrollment. Shares of the California-based company lost 19.5% to 70 cents in light extended trading.

Limelight Networks

(LLNW) - Get Report

was among the late winners after the purveyor of content-delivery network services boosted its third-quarter guidance.

The Tempe, Ariz., company now expects a narrower loss compared with the prior outlook of 4 cents to 6 cents a share, excluding items. Non-GAAP revenue should now be between $27.5 million to $28 million -- at least $1 million higher than the prior estimate. Analysts polled by Thomson Financial are looking for a 2-cent-per-share loss on $26.2 million in sales. Shares leapt 9.5% to $12.75.
