Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Shares of Oplink Communications (NASDAQ: OPLK  ) got crushed today, down 11% at the low, after the company reported earnings.

So what: Revenue in the quarter was $45.1 million, with non-GAAP net income of $4.6 million, or $0.24 per share. Sales were a little light compared to the $45.2 million consensus estimate, while earnings were slightly ahead of the $0.22 per share expected.
