Ascena Retail stock plunged 20 percent in extended trading after the company posted weak guidance for the upcoming financial quarter. That news overshadowed earnings and revenue that met Wall Street expectations. In a statement Chief Executive David Jaffe called the most recent quarter "disappointing," due to "fashion missteps that we cannot afford in today's environment," hinting that the Ann Taylor parent company is combating the same pressures as are dragging stock of other big name retailers.
Shares of Coupa Software slid about 3 percent, despite posting better-than-expected quarterly results. The company posted an adjusted loss of 5 cents per share on $47.3 million in revenue. Analysts had expected the company to post an adjusted loss of 11 cents a share on $45.1 million in revenue, according to Thomson Reuters consensus estimates.
