Micron Technology Jumps Despite Wider Loss
Boise, Idaho-based chip-maker Micron Technology (NYSE: MU) released its fiscal second-quarter earnings results on Thursday after the closing bell.
In late trading, Micron was last up more than five percent to $9.55 despite the company reporting a wider loss in the quarter.
Micron said that its second-quarter loss was $286 million or $0.28 per share, compared to a loss of $282 million or $0.29 per share, in last year's second-quarter. This compared to Wall Street analysts' consensus estimates calling for a loss of $0.19.
Revenue was $2.08 billion compared to $2.01 billion last year. This easily beat consensus revenue expectations of $1.92 billion and is likely the reason the stock is trading higher in the after-hours.
