STMicroelectronics posts Q2 EPS of 18 cents

Semiconductor manufacturer STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) on Thursday reported second-quarter earnings of 18 cents per share, down 38% year-over-year, hurt by lower revenues and weakness in the overall market. The bottom-line was in line with the Wall Street projection.
