Actual results for any future period are subject to large fluctuations given the nature of Cray's business.
Generally, I don't like it when the CEO starts off press release with sentences like the following.
"We didn't achieve the financial results we were anticipating for the third quarter as a couple of large acceptances shifted out of the quarter, and we now expect to have both of them completed during the fourth quarter," said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray.
CRAY closed yesterday at $22.21. 52-week range: $12.40 - $28.59.

Twitter raised its price range to $23 to $25 per share on Monday, but kept the offering size at 70 million shares. That means it will raise up to $2 billion if an overallotment option of 10.5 million shares is exercised.
Twitter's expected market value is $13.6 billion. Right now Facebook and LinkedIn have market values of $117.17 billion and $26.71 billion, respectively.
I'd be okay buying some TWTR at $25, but I won't chase it.
[update::02013.11.07] TWTR starts trading today (02013.11.07). Twitter went public at $26. I tried to placed an order to buy some TWTR at 8 $Pi ($25.13), but Scottrade.com didn't allow me to place the order. My Facebook status update today: "To buy or not to buy?" is not the question. The question is: "At what price to buy?" If TWTR is like GOOG, we might never buy; but, if TWTR is like FB, we'll buy.
