Brocade's stock fell more than 20 percent on Feb. 23 after the company missed its earnings estimates and offered a weak 2010 outlook. Brocade also said its Ethernet business, which it picked up with its acquisition last year of Foundry Networks, has yet to meet expectations. The stock never recovered and last November Brocade reported a decline in earnings and said revenue also wouldn't meet expectations for the fourth fiscal quarter.
