Corel (CORL) was down 2.1% in early afternoon after posting a fourth-quarter loss of 12 cents a share, far worse than the First Call/Thomson Financial forecast of 1 cent.

The struggling company reported a slight gain over last year in sales of its flagship graphics software.

Corel, the maker of WordPerfect, reiterated its prediction of a return to profitability in the third quarter of this year.
