On Jan. 25, Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR) released Q4 and full fiscal 2005 earnings for the period ending Dec. 31, 2005.

  • Net income included roughly $14 million in charges related to acquisitions, restructuring, and redemption of convertible notes. Without them, Juniper earned $0.20 per stub, in line with Street projections.
  • Sales, however, disappointed. Not surprisingly, investors took their objections out on the shares, which fell by almost 21%.
  • The outlook isn't much better. According to Reuters, Juniper expects to book between $565 million and $575 million in revenue and $0.19 per stub after special charges. Analysts, however, had projected $586 million and $0.20 a share.
