Around 380 companies in the stock index have reported under the new rules as of June 8, and 294 companies in the index disclosed an impact on financial statements from adopting the standard, according to Audit Analytics.

    Tech Today: Micron's 'Storm Clouds,' Tech Data Soars, Uber IPO in '19

    Here are some things going on today in the world of tech: Shares of memory-chip maker Micron Technology (MU) are down $3.52, or almost 6%, at $59.05, after Morgan Stanley’s Joseph Moore this morning cut his rating on the shares to Equal Weight from Overweight, warning of "storm clouds on the horizon" for the company. Shares of fiber-optic networking equipment firm Ciena (CIEN) are down 6 cents at $24, after the company this morning reported $730 million in revenue for its fiscal Q2 ended in April, beating the average $726 million but missing on the bottom line, delivering 23 cents a share, below the average 30-cent estimate. In early analysis this morning, Alex Henderson with Needham & Co., who is bullish on the stock, writes that the company’s gross profit margins were lower because the company shipped more of the “chassis” of its systems, which have lower margins than "line cards” that get sold later on to add capability to the chassis.
