NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Vonage (VG) - Get Report were surging 10.06% to $7.05 on heavy trading volume late Wednesday afternoon after the company posted better-than-anticipated results for the 2016 third quarter.
Before today's opening bell, the Homdel, NJ-based phone service provider reported adjusted earnings of 9 cents per share, exceeding analysts' expectations of 5 cents per share.

Additionally, the company raised its guidance for Vonage business revenue to range between $374 and $377 million, up from $365 million to $370 million.
More than 11.52 million of the company's shares have traded so far today vs. its average 30-day volume of 2.74 million shares.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Hold" rating with a score of C on the stock.
The primary factors that have impacted the rating are mixed. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and expanding profit margins.
But the team also finds weaknesses including deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity and weak operating cash flow.
