NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Teradata(:TDC) was one of tech's big winners during pre-market trading on Thursday after shredding Wall Street's expectations for its first-quarter results.
The data warehousing specialist, which is one of TheStreet's top 'big data' stocks for 2012, brought in revenue of $613 million, a 21% hike on the prior year's quarter.
Excluding items, Teradata earned 60 cents a share, up from 48 cents a share in the prior year's quarter. Analysts were looking for sales of $587.5 million and earnings of 56 cents a share.

Shares of Intel(:INTC) crept up 15 cents, or 0.51%, to $29.33 on Thursday after German chipmaker Infineon Technologies raised its full-year outlook, boosted by demand from car manufacturers. Intel was also one of the most active Nasdaq stocks in pre-market trading on share volume of 162,672.
