After-Hours Movers & Shakers (May 8, 2007)


Allscripst Healthcare Solutions (MDRX) is trading down over 6% to $25.25 after eraffirming targets after earnings.  Its shares are still up 70% in 18 months, so reaffirming may not be enough.

Cisco Systems (CSCO) trading down 5.5% to $26.75 after estimates and guidance failed on a “wow-factor” like in prior quarters.

CompuCredit (CCRT) is getting shelled 8% in after-hours to $35.00 after posting a loss in the quarter.  It still sees $4.00 or higher EPS for 2007, but you have to trust them, and their customers are the “undesireables” compared to most financial institutions.

Electronic Arts (ERTS) trading down close to 3% at $51.50 after next quarter guidance is not up to snuff.  The full year for fiscal March-2008 looks ahead, but you have to trust they will deliver in the same two quarters that Halo 3 and Grand Theft Auto releases will be coming.

LMI Aerospace (LMIA) fell 9% on thin volume after posting lower earnings.

North American Palladium (PAL) rose 9% to $11.11 after Cramer touted it as a stealthy way to speculate on a nickel play with 22% of its revenues coming from nickel.

Papa John’s International (PZZA) traded up 2.2% to $32.50 in after-hours. Earnings wer elower than last year but guidance had been brought in enough that they were able to raise their outlook.

Physicians Formula (FACE) fell nearly 10% after beating guidance but guiding lower for the coming quarter.

Sirius Satellite Radio (SIRI) traded up 1.7% after Cramer noted it in the lightning round as a positive if the governemnt will approve the merger.

Sonus Networks (SONS) traded up 5.7% in normal trading and went up another 2% in after-hours to $7.95.  Revenues looked a bit light, so this one is worth a look.

True Religion Apparel (TRLG) traded up almost 4% to $16.27 after closing up 3.5% in normal trading.  The company did reiterate 20% sales growth for 2007 and put EPS at $1.24 to $1.27 for 2007.

Walt Disney (DIS) fell 2% after meeting expectations, but that’s after trading up almost 1.4% in regular trading.  Shares were close to recent highs.
