Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co missed Wall Street estimates for quarterly revenue on November 25, hit by lower demand for its servers and storage products, sending its shares down about 4 percent in trading after the bell.

Sales in its IT business, which makes storage and data centre networking products, fell 10.5 percent, while its unit that makes wireless network products posted a 6.5 percent drop.

The company had previously warned of "uneven demand" due to US-China trade tensions.
