BlackBerry—The handset maker earned 4 cents per share for its latest quarter, compared to an expected 4-cent-per-share loss, but revenue was far below Street forecasts as sales from services exceeded those from hardware.
Finish Line—The sports apparel and footwear retailer beat estimates by 3 cents with quarterly profit of 88 cents per share, with revenue also above estimates. Same-store sales were up 2.6 percent, and the company also authorized a new five million share repurchase program.
Oracle—The business software giant got a positive mention in a new analyst report at UBS. Following a meeting with CEO Mark Hurd, the firm said all three of Oracle's major businesses are seeing product tailwinds.
