21Vianet (VNET) Stock Declines in After-Hours Trading on Q2 Loss

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of 21Vianet (VNET) were lower in after-hours trading on Tuesday after the Beijing-based company posted a wider-than-anticipated loss for the 2016 second quarter.

After today's market close, the Internet data center services provider reported an adjusted loss of 17 cents per share, while analysts were looking for a loss of 9 cents per share.

Revenue for the quarter was $137.1 million, above Wall Street's projections of $128.2 million.

"Despite headwinds in certain market segments, we are pleased to report that core business areas, including IDC, Cloud and VPN gained solid growth momentum in the second quarter," CEO Steve Zhang said in a statement.

About 2.01 million of the company's shares were traded today vs. its average volume of 1.1 million shares per day.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings Team has a "Sell" rating with a score of D on the stock.

The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its deteriorating net income, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

Recently, TheStreet Ratings objectively rated this stock according to its "risk-adjusted" total return prospect over a 12-month investment horizon. Not based on the news in any given day, the rating may differ from Jim Cramer's view or that of this articles's author.
