News Breaks
October 7, 2013
16:31 EDTAAPL, CTB, TWX, IMAX, RLD, GWPH, SAP, CSCO, GOOG, BBRY, LQDTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the day deep in negative territory, with the weakness attributed to the lack of movement by Congressional leaders in forging agreements regarding the budget and the debt ceiling. The averages drifted throughout the session and moved in a narrow range for the most part, until weakening into the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Consumer credit grew by $13.6B in August, which was somewhat above economists' expectations. Non-revolving credit, such as student and auto loans, rose, while revolving credit including credit cards slipped. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) rose $4.72, or 0.98%, to $487.75 after research firm Jefferies upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $600 from $425. After meetings with Asian suppliers, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek believes that the tech giant is getting price breaks from the companies that provide components. Misek, who previously expected the iPhone maker to report lower than expected profits for its fourth quarter, now thinks that the company's fourth quarter profits will be nearly in-line with analysts' expectations... BlackBerry (BBRY) shares advanced 28c, or 3.64%, to $7.97 after Reuters said the mobile device maker is in talks with Google (GOOG), Cisco (CSCO) and SAP (SAP) about selling them all or parts of itself. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH), which jumped $7.16, or 28.99%, to $31.86 after a Lazard Capital analyst wrote that the company has one of the most compelling opportunities he's ever seen and nearly tripled his price target on the stock to $65 from $22. Shares of RealD (RLD) rose 59c, or 9.2%, to $7.00 after the opening weekend of Warner Bros. (TWX) film "Gravity" had impressive statistics for 3-D viewing. Among the noteworthy losers was Cooper Tire (CTB), which fell $3.79, or 12.84%, to $25.72 as the company and Apollo Tyres, the Indian tire-maker which has agreed to buy Cooper, engage in a public fight over the price of the deal. Also lower were shares of Liquidity Services (LQDT), which dropped $3.78, or 11.53%, to $28.99 after Bank of America Merrill Lynch downgraded its stock two notches to Underperform from Buy and cut its price target on shares to $31 from $45. INDEXES: The Dow was down 136.34, or 0.90%, to 14,936.24; the Nasdaq was down 37.37, or 0.98%, to 3,770.38; and the S&P 500 was down 14.38, or 0.85%, to 1,676.12.

11:58 EDTLQDTLiquidity Services tumbles after guidance cut for defense agency change
Shares of surplus and salvage asset auction marketplace Liquidity Services (LQDT) are tumbling after the company lowered its third quarter adjusted earnings per share and EBITDA guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Liquidity Services now sees its Q3 adjusted EPS to be below 28c-34c and sees its Q3 adjusted EBITDA to be below its guidance range of $18M-$21M. Liquidity Services announced that its sales of selected rolling stock and other assets under its Surplus Contract with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency have ceased at the request of DLA pending further review of the impact of regulatory rules. This action has resulted in the cancellation of selected sales during the June quarter as well as future sales of selected assets. The company noted that the DLA action was unrelated to the company’s performance or conduct and that it expects its Q3 total gross merchandise volume to be within its guidance range of $225M-$250M. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's conference call explaining the DLA surplus property items and its preliminary Q3 results, the company said that the DLA's recent decision to cease the sale of a majority of the rolling stock items is unexpected as it has sold these items for many years. Liquidity Services currently handle the affected rolling stock items under the terms of its DoD surplus contract, which extends through February 2015 including all renewal options. In April, Liquidity Services announced that it withdrew from the live auction bidding for the new DLA rolling stock contract. The company said that bidding reached a level that it determined would be economically unsustainable under the terms of the new contract jeopardizing the high level of service it had historically provided the DLA. Liquidity Services said that it feels the material reduction to the rolling stock property flow caused by DLA's recent actions will require further analysis regarding the viability of a standalone rolling stock program beyond February 2015. At this time, the DLA has not announced the details of a final policy regarding cessation of rolling stock sales covered under its existing DoD surplus contract, or the impact on the future of the rolling stock program. The company said it will continue to work closely with DLA. PRICE ACTION: During late morning trading, shares of Liquidity Services fell $2.18, or 14.8%, to $12.51.
