It could've been worse...

Gateway's stock plummeted 25 per cent after the company announced lower than expected revenue for the fourth quarter. The PC manufacturer has suffered a 15 per cent decline in sales over the third and fourth quarters, leaving the company with Q4 revenues of $1.16bn. Analysts expected revenue to come in at $1.39bn. Growing concerns over the company's ability to maintain or grow revenues mean Gateway has been reduced to 'junk status' and is under review by rating agency Moody's. Gateway's shares dropped $2.56 to $7.69.
