Oracle had a surprise profit miss yesterday, earning just $0.65 a share in its third quarter. Analysts had expected $0.66. Revenue of $9.38 billion also lagged the $8.96 billion estimate. ORCL drops 8 percent before the bell on my tradeMONSTER platform.

Jabil Circuit earned just $0.53 a share in its second quarter, a penny shy of consensus estimates. Revenue beat but outlook was weak, with the top and bottom lines both seen below estimates in the third quarter. JBL drops 2.5 percent in early trading.
