Facebook, Zynga, Netflix, Apple: Tech Premarket

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Facebook ( FB) was a massive gainer in premarket trading on Wednesday, following the company's third-quarter results, released late on Tuesday.

The social networking phenomenon edged past Wall Street's top- and bottom-line estimates and indicated that the company's mobile strategy is progressing.

The results clearly resonated with investors, driving Facebook's shares up 26.41% to $24.65 in premarket trading. Facebook was also the most active pre-market Nasdaq stock on share volume of 24,720,811.

Shares of Facebook partner Zynga ( ZNGA) were also boosted by the third-quarter results, rising 5% to $2.31 on share volume of 321,595.

Netflix ( NFLX) shares, however, plunged 17.38% to $56.36 on share volume of 173,018 following the company's third-quarter results, which saw weaker-than-expected U.S. streaming subscriber growth.

Shares of Apple ( AAPL) crept up 0.82% to $618.41 in premarket trading following the company's iPad Mini launch on Tuesday.
