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 Parametric Technology (Nasdaq: PMTC) have popped by upward of 12% after the company reported second-quarter earnings.

So what: Revenue was $301.1 million and earnings per share added up to $0.30. CEO James Heppelmann said that while management was disappointed with the results, the company has market momentum and its sales pipeline should grow over time.

Now what: Guidance for the third quarter sees revenue of $300 million to $315 million, which is actually lower than expected. The same goes for full-year adjusted earnings per share, which should be in the ballpark of $1.42 to $1.50. While the results left a little to be desired, this was mostly expected as the company had issued a warning earlier this month, so it seems that the figures weren't as bad as investors thought they would be.
