Teradata Corp. (NYSE:TDC): Current price $44.05

Shares are down more than 16 percent Tuesday in extremely heavy volume after the data management firm lowered its full-year guidance, saying that its business outside of the United States and Europe had to struggle during the last quarter. If the losses hold for the trading session, shares would close near the bottom of their 52-week range. Teradata released third-quarter profit and revenue numbers that missed Wall Street predictions, attributed to a 21-percent slide in revenue from the Asia, Pacific, and Japan markets, and a 19-percent decrease in revenue from the Middle East and Africa.
