12:12 EDTFNSROclaro spikes after quarterly results, optical peers follow
Shares of optical networking firm Oclaro (OCLR) are advancing, along with its peers, after Oclaro reported better than expected quarterly results. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Tuesday, Oclaro reported second quarter adjusted earnings per share of 3c on revenue of $94.1M. Both EPS and revenue were better than consensus estimates of (1c) and $91.5M, respectively. The company's adjusted gross margin rate for the quarter was 28.8%, much better than the 16.5% in the year ago quarter. Oclaro CEO Greg Dougherty pointed out the continuing growth in the company's 100G portfolio and said he expects revenue growth to continue in 2016. According to the CEO, revenue growth in the quarter "drove higher gross margin and net income." The company sees continued "robust" demand for its 100G product portfolio as it expands capacity in Asia. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Along with its Q2 results, Oclaro said it sees Q3 revenue of $97M-$103M, ahead of analyst expectations of $90.7M. On its Q2 earnings call, the company said it sees strong demand from China, with contract awards form China Telecom (CHA) and China Unicom (CHU ), which have deliveries slated for later in calendar year 2016. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Oclaro are up 10% in early afternoon trading. OPTICAL PEERS: Shares of other companies in the optical networking space are also out performing the market, including Finisar (FNSR), Infinera (INFN), Lumentum Holdings (LITE), NeoPhotonics (NPTN), and Ciena (CIEN).

10:40 EDTZNGAStifel warns Twitter may go way of tech busts, cuts to Sell
Twitter (TWTR) is giving up nearly all of yesterday's gains after Fortune and The Wall Street Journal poured cold water on a report that private equity firm Silver Lake might be considering making a strategic investment in the company. Additionally weighing on the stock are a Business Insider report claiming that the number of tweets has declined by more than 50% in the last 18 months and research firm Stifel downgrading the stock to Sell. WHAT'S NEW: Yesterday morning, tech website The Information reported that venture capitalist Marc Andreessen and private equity firm Silver Lake have considered making a deal involving Twitter. However, Silver Lake isn't looking to make a deal with Twitter, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing an unnamed source. The Journal's article echoes a report yesterday afternoon by Fortune, which also quoted an unnamed source as saying that Silver Lake isn't interested in buying Twitter. Also, according to Business Insider, the number of daily tweets on Twitter has plummeted by more than 50% since August 2014. The report based its estimate on a sampling of data from the website's application programming interface. Last month, there were 303M tweets per day on average, down from the peak of an average of 661M per day in August 2014, when the World Cup was occurring, the website stated. Moreover, according to the data, Twitter has about 130M active users, versus the company's estimate of up to 320M monthly active users. STIFEL SAY SELL: Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Twitter to Sell form Hold, saying that it has "never fully developed into a sustainable public company." Yahoo (YHOO) says that it has 1B monthly active users, but the market valuation of Yahoo's core business is "much lower" than that of Twitter, which has a significantly smaller user base, Devitt stated. Additionally, Internet companies Groupon (GRPN) and Zynga (ZNGA) became well-known and obtained tens of millions of users, only to see their stocks plummet, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Twitter's product has not changed significantly since the company hired a new CEO three months ago and it will have difficulty meeting financial expectations over the short-term and longer term, given the size of its user base, said Devitt, who has a $14 price target for the shares. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Twitter fell 6.3% to $16.78. The stock had gained 6.55% yesterday on the heels of Jessica Lessin's report in The Information.

06:26 EDTDALAmerican Airlines stock price too low, WSJ says
The sharp drop in oil prices has come to the benefit of the four major U.S. airline carriers, which account for approximately 80% of the domestic air-travel market, Steven Russolillo of the Wall Street Journal's Ahead of the Tape reports. United Continental (UAL) and Southwest Airlines (LUV) already reported record Q4 earnings, and Delta (DAL) recently reported a quarterly profit as well, the report says. American Airlines (AAL) is slated to reported Q4 results, which are expected to be upbeat, the Journal says. The stock prices of such companies, however, suggests that investors aren't experiencing the full benefits due to weakness with the industry's boom-and-bust nature, the report says. American Airlines's share price, in particular, is too low, and its stock has fallen too much relative to competitors ahead of quarterly results, the report says. Reference Link
