Cirrus shares lost $3.36, or 15.69%, to $18.05 following its warning and a number of other suppliers with exposure to Apple's supply chain fell also... Bank of America (BAC) reported headline earnings that missed consensus, though its revenue topped expectations.

BofA was the Dow's worst performer following its quarterly report, falling 58c, or 4.72%, to $11.70. MAJOR MOVERS: Among notable gainers were shares of Acura Pharma (ACUR), up 73c, or 33.95%, to $2.88, and Endo Health (ENDP), up $1.10, or 3.16%, to $35.96 after the FDA announced it will not approve generic versions of non-tamper-resistant OxyContin. Also higher was Alkermes (ALKS), up $4.12, or 16.09%, to $29.72 after reporting preliminary results from a study of a drug candidate for major depressive disorder. Among the noteworthy losers was E2open (EOPN), down $4.49, or 24.18%, to $14.08 after its earnings and guidance fell well short of expectations. Also lower were shares of Textron (TXT), down $3.94, or 13.42%, to $25.41 after the company reported first quarter results that missed expectations and it cut its full-year view...
