Dell

(DELL) - Get Report

was the volume leader in extended-hours Instinet action after the company posted third-quarter earnings that topped Wall Street's estimates by a penny.

The PC maker's shares were inching down 0.4% to $27.57 in after-hours trading. For the period, which ended Nov. 2, Dell reported income of $429 million, or 16 cents a share, on revenue of $7.5 billion. Analysts were looking for a bottom line of 15 cents with revenue of $7.3 billion, according to First Call.

For the fourth quarter, the company expects industry revenue to decline from the third quarter, with flat product shipments. Dell expects its own fourth-quarter volume to increase roughly 5% sequentially, with revenue up slightly. The company also projected stable profit margins, with earnings for the quarter of 16 cents a share, which would match analysts' expectations.

Overall Instinet action was convincing, with the top 20 volume movers accounting for around 3 million shares traded in the first half-hour of extra activity.
