Also higher following a better-than-expected earnings report was another software company, Splunk (SPLK), which gained $6.29, or 12.86%, to $55.21, as the stock was also upgraded at FBR Capital. Among the noteworthy losers were shares of doughnut maker Krispy Kreme (KKD), down $3.51, or 15.11%, to $19.72 after its earnings and guidance missed expectations. Also lower was teen retailer Pacific Sunwear (PSUN), down 66c, or 16.84%, to $3.26, which reported an in-line second quarter but gave an earnings and revenue outlook for the third quarter that fell short of estimates.
