Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) just blew out earnings so much that it is not even worth noting how great the quarter was. Massive, and with some $76 billion in cash. Shares were up 0.8% at $376.85 and the stock is now at an all-time again in after-hours on a 5.9% gain of $22+ at $398.10.
Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE: CMG) has risen and risen, but we are seeing give-backs with a bit of Montezuma’s Revenge tonight… Shares are down 4.7% at $318.00 in the after-hours on what appears to be soft earnings.
Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) beat earnings and gave guidance that meets or beats estimates. Shares closed up 1.4% at $30.86 but the stock is up more than 7% at $33.08 in the after-hours.
Cirrus Logic Inc. (NASDAQ: CRUS) is rising on Apple and it was up 5.8% to $17.14 in normal trading and up another 5% at $18.03 in the after-hours.
CSX Corporation (NYSE: CSX) is up 1.6% at $25.90 in the after-hours after just beating estimates and backing prior guidance.
Fortinet Inc. (NASDAQ: FTNT) grew revenues 35%, grew billings 22% and grew earnings 88%, but shares are getting smacked. After almost a 1% gain today shares are down 21% at $21.25 in the after-hours session. Ouch.
Government Properties Income Trust (NYSE: GOV) did not report earnings but it said it was selling 5 million shares of common stock in the REIT after the close to reduce amounts outstanding under its revolving credit facility and for general business purposes. Shares are down over 3% at $25.56 in the after-hours session.

Riverbed Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVBD) should change its name on Wednesday to River-Dead… Shares closed up 6.7% at $41.40 but the after hours session has shares down a massive 25% at $30.90 after missing revenue estimates and after announcing two acquisitions. The company saw softness in the EMEA region. It has also traded more than 3 million shares since the closing bell. This marks a severe blow when you consider how much it has gained.
VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) rose 5.2% to $106.02, a new year high today. Shares are up more than 6.5% more at $112.90 after beating earnings and revenues and giving solid guidance.

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO) closed up 1.2% at $14.59 but shares are soft after a revenue miss and on light guidance. The good news is that Carol Bartz continues to trim costs.
