Superior Energy Services Inc.'s (SPN) second-quarter earnings soared as revenue of the provider of oil-field services more than doubled. But shares slipped 9.1% to $21.20 after hours as the company lowered its full-year earnings guidance, noting continued low natural-gas prices as well as declines in realized crude oil and liquids prices are impacting customers' cash flows, leading to reduced spending in the second half of the year.
