Shares of Lumentum Holdings Inc. /zigman2/quotes/204419752/composite LITE -1.22% slumped 8.5% in premarket trading Tuesday, after the optical networking products company reported fiscal fourth-quarter earnings that beat expectations but provided a downbeat profit outlook for the current quarter.

For the first quarter, the company expects adjusted EPS of $1.45 to $1.70, below the FactSet consensus of $1.81, and expects revenue of $490 million to $520 million, which surrounds expectations of $491 million.
