Cirrus, Intel, Yahoo!: Tech Premarket

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Shares of Cirrus Logic ( CRUS) plunged 8.45% to $19.60 before market open as investors responded to the component maker's weaker-than-expected first-quarter guidance.

The Apple ( AAPL) partner released its preliminary fourth-quarter results late on Tuesday.

"We feel investors have been waiting for expectations to be reset lower following broadly held concerns over iPhone 5 and iPad 4 demand," wrote Bobby Burleson, an analyst at Cannacord Genuity, in a note released on Tuesday. Cannacord lowered its Cirrus price target to $25 from $30.

Cirrus Logic was also one of the most active pre-market Nasdaq stocks on share volume of 250,690.

Intel ( INTC) dipped 0.89% to $21.72 despite edging past Wall Street's sales estimate in its first-quarter results on Tuesday.

The chipmaker earned 40 cents a share, down from 53 cents a share in the prior year's quarter. Intel reported revenue of $12.6 billion, compared to $12.9 billion for the same period last year. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were looking for earnings of 41 cents a share and revenue of $12.59 billion.

Intel reported a gross margin of 56%, at the low end of the company's guidance, and down 8 percentage points year over year.

The No. 1 chip maker expects second-quarter revenue of $12.9 billion, plus or minus $500 million, broadly in line with Wall Street's forecast of $12.85 billion. Intel also predicts a gross margin of 58%, plus or minus a couple of percentage points.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company was another active pre-market Nasdaq stock on share volume of 733,196.

Yahoo! ( YHOO) shares fell 2.1% to $23.29 after the company's first-quarter results, released late on Tuesday. The Internet giant was also the most active pre-market Nasdaq stock on share volume of 2,078,842.

Despite beating Wall Street's earnings projection, Yahoo! missed on revenue and guidance was weaker than anticipated.

Apple ( AAPL) shares were off 0.91% to $422.34, while Sirius XM ( SIRI) slipped 0.49% to $3.03.
