NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of NeoPhotonics (NPTN) were diving 26.22% to $10.75 on heavy trading volume early Friday afternoon after the company reported earnings and revenue that fell short of Wall Street's expectations for the 2016 third quarter.

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 impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and revenue growth.

But the team also finds that the company's profit margins have been poor overall.
