For the company's fourth quarter, management sees earnings between $0.52 and $0.60 per share. Its prior outlook was for $0.69 to $0.84 per share, and analysts were expecting Team to make around $0.72 per share. Management blamed the lowered forecast on a lower than expected profit margin due to cost and utilization difficulties. Team shares are trading in the middle of their 52-week range of $24.95-$46.66.

JA Solar Holdings is on fire today, up 70.23% at $9.55. The solar panel company saw its shares skyrocket after releasing astonishing earnings. First-quarter revenue was $270 million, with a net loss of $33.3 million, or $0.85 per share. Analysts were expecting $226 million in revenue and a $1.03 per share loss.
