Seagate, Sirius, Cirrus: Tech Premarket
Results from the hard drive specialist, which announced its preliminary results earlier this month, came in below Wall Street's top- and bottom-line estimates, but hiked its dividend. Seagate's fourth-quarter gross margin was 33.1%, or 33.6% excluding items.
"As we announced previously, we were disappointed not to meet our revenue and margin plan for the fourth quarter as a result of the industry's faster recovery from the supply chain disruption and an isolated supplier issue that we experienced," said Steve Luczo, Seagate's CEO, in a statement released after the market close.
Seagate shares slumped 8.31% to $27.90 before market open on Tuesday.

Shares of the satellite radio specialist slipped 0.46% to $2.18 before market open.
As a key Apple(AAPL) partner, the chipmaker's healthy guidance may point to the launch of the new iPhone, which is rumored to debut in September or October.
