Avago, Apple, Workday: Tech Premarket

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Avago Technologies ( AVGO) shares surged in pre-market trading, lifted by strong third-quarter results and guidance on Tuesday.

Shares of the semiconductor specialist climbed 6.14% to $38.80 before market open.

"AVGO reported a strong JulyQ guiding to a stronger OctQ despite multiple competitive and smartphone concerns," wrote Vijay Rakesh, an analyst at Sterne Agee, in a note released on Wednesday.

Sterne Agee raised its fourth-quarter Avago revenue estimate to $730 million from $692 million. The analyst firm, which has a 'buy' rating on Avago, also hiked its fourth-quarter earnings estimate to 84 cents a share from 78 cents a share.

Facebook ( FB) was a more modest gainer, rising 0.76% to $39.94. The social network was one of the most active pre-market Nasdaq stocks, as nearly 700,000 shares traded hands.

Tesla ( TSLA) climbed 1.46% to $169.45 on share volume of 158,255.

Shares of cloud computing specialist Workday ( WDAY) rose 0.64% to $76.50, boosted by better-than-expected fiscal second-quarter results after market close on Tuesday.
