Though FQ4 results missed estimates and guidance for FQ1 revenue of $435M-$460M isn't favorable with a $458.6M consensus, Ciena (CIEN +1.8%) is trading higher. Few expected a great report in light of soft wireline capex, and a record backlog is going over well. Also, gross margin rose 290 bps Q/Q to 42.7%, and is expected to stay in the low-40s in FQ1. Optical transport sales (62% of total) saw a 2% Y/Y decline and optical switching fell 50%. But carrier Ethernet sales rose 66% and software/services 21%. TLAB +1.5%. FNSR +5.3%. OCLR +2%.
