iRobot stock plunges after earnings show slight sales miss
IRobot Corp. continued to be a volatile stock after earnings Tuesday, falling more than 10% in after-hours trading as sales of its Roomba products came in lighter than expectations. IRobot reported first-quarter profit of $22.5 million, or 78 cents a share, on sales of $237.7 million, up from earnings of 71 cents a share on revenue of $217.1 million a year ago. Analysts on average expected iRobot to report earnings of 60 cents a share on sales of $251 million, according to FactSet. With the stronger profit than expected, the company increased its expectations for full-year earnings to a range of $3.15 to $3.40 a share, from $3 to $3.25 a share. The stock tends to move dramatically after earnings: After the last three quarterly reports before Tuesday, iRobot shares gained 9.6%, fell 12.3% and jumped 17% respectively. Shares closed up 1.4% at $130.57 Tuesday, then fell lower than $118 in immediate late trading following the release of the report.
