Riverbed Technology (RVBD) Pleases the Street

It's been a tough road the past few months for networking companies, as worries about a slowing economy and lower technology spending have weighed on the group.  A few high profile names also missed their numbers last quarter, or provided uninspiring guidance.  This has wrecked a lot of charts, including that of Riverbed Technology (RVBD).  Last evening, the company reported a good set of numbers, and the stock is amongst the upside leaders today.

For the quarter, the company posted revenue of $191 million and non-GAAP profits of 24 cents a share, ahead of the Street at $185.3 million and 21 cents. Revenue was up 28% from a year ago.

For Q4, the company sees revenue of $198 million to $202 million, and non-GAAP profits of 24-25 cents a share, ahead of the Street at $199.5 million and 23 cents.

The company also bought back $20 million of its common stock in the latest quarter.
