Q4 Earnings Continue the Deluge: LNKD, LGF, ATHN, NTGR & QRVO

Among a plethora of companies reporting Q4 earnings after the bell Thursday, LinkedIn ( LNKD ), Lions Gate ( LGF ), Athenahealth ( ATHN ), Netgear ( NTGR ) and Qorvo ( QRVO ) provided earnings and guidance for Q1, with decidedly mixed results in late trading. Continuing to work down the second half of Q4 earnings season, we file the following reports:

Although employment-oriented social media firm LinkedIn posted positive surprises on both earnings and revenues for its Q4 report, the company guided steeply lower, and this caused shares to trade off drastically following the announcement. LinkedIn Beats Q4 Earnings but Guides Low, Stock Down 20%

Feature film production company Lions Gate Entertainment missed both top and bottom line estimates quite badly after the closing bell Thursday, citing a lack of hit movies as a major reason for the lag in the quarter. Lions Gate Entertainment Misses Q3 Earnings and Revenue Estimates
