Shares of VeriSign (Nasdaq: VRSN) got hammered today, down by 20% at the low, after the company reported earnings, and a contract review delay. Revenue in the third quarter rose 13%, to $224 million, with non-GAAP net income of $84 million, or $0.50 per share. The figures were slightly ahead of the market's forecasts. The company trimmed the high-end of guidance, and now expects full-year sales between $870 million and $875 million. The big news was that regulators have delayed the review of VeriSign's contract for its domain name registry business. The review was expected to be completed by the end of next month by the Commerce Department, but VeriSign said regulators may not finish on time. That adds major uncertainty in the near-term for what some analysts had considered a "formality."

Shares of Quantum (NYSE:QTM) hit a 52-week low on Friday. Let's take a look at how it got there and see if clear skies are still in the forecast. The phrase "cyclical business" has far more meaning if you're a Quantum shareholder than with possibly any other stock or sector. Quantum, which provides physical, virtual, and cloud data encryption and storage solutions, has been crushed on the heels of tepid technology spending from both enterprises and consumers, as well as cautious spending in Europe related to the ongoing credit crisis. In its second-quarter earnings report, released last week, Quantum pointed to record disk system and software revenue, as well as 5% sequential quarter revenue growth. However, the fact remains that Quantum's total sales fell 11%, and expenses were only slightly reduced, as it reported a $0.05 loss per share, reversing a year-ago profit of $0.01.
