Mobile Demand Provides a Boost

Synaptics said it expects to report revenue of $227 million to $230 million for the fourth quarter ending on June 30. That's up nicely from the $190 million to $205 million estimate provided earlier. The maker of chips for touch screens cited strong mobile demand. SYNA rallies 13 percent before the opening bell on my tradeMONSTER platform.

Apollo Group earned just $0.71 a share in the third quarter, missing the $0.85 average analyst estimate. Revenue of $946.8 million also lagged the $965 million consensus number, hurt by lower enrollment. APOL drops almost 5 percent in the premarket.
