More on Ciena's FQ3: The company expects FQ4 revenue of $455M-$480M, below a $499.5M consensus. It also expects gross margin to slip to ~40% from FQ3's 44.1%, and opex to grow to the "low $180s million" from FQ3's $175.2M. Optical transport (63% of sales) grew Y/Y but fell Q/Q. Ciena blames macro issues and "slower-than-expected rollouts" (likely related to 40G/100G optical gear) for its woes. CIEN -11.6%. Also lower: JDSU -2.2%. FNSR -2.7%. (other telecom equipment warnings: I, II, III, IV)
