Blue Coat Continues its Decline in the Markets

BLUE COAT SHOULD feel a little red faced.

Shares of Blue Coat Systems (BCSI: 19.07, -5.43, -22.2%) dropped 22% to $19.07 Wednesday after the network-security specialist issued its second earnings warning in just over a week.

On Feb. 6, the Sunnyvale, Calif., company said its third-quarter earnings would fall well short of Wall Street’s expectations.

Blue Coat shares have now lost 53% of their value in little more than a week.
