NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of La-Z-Boy (LZB) - Get La-Z-Boy Incorporated Report are plunging 15.59% to $26.34 in after-hours trading on Tuesday after posting fiscal 2017 first-quarter earnings and revenue below analysts' projections.

Revenue fell to $340.8 million from $341.4 million a year ago and missed analysts' estimates of $358.8 million.
