Microsoft has completed its latest round of layoffs in a move to "remove role overlap, optimize activities and functions, align disciplines with the rest of Microsoft, and, perhaps most importantly, reshape IT for the skills we need to transform," Business Insider reports, citing an email from Chief Information Officer Jim DuBois.

06:20 EDTAAPLGarmin downgraded to Sell from Buy at Citigroup
Citigroup analyst Jeremy David downgraded Garmin two notches to Sell from Buy saying competitive pressures are likely to stall the growth of the company's GPS fitness watch business. He also thinks revenue trends in Garmin's Outdoor segment could disappoint as the year progresses. David expects Garmin to miss consensus earnings and revenue expectations in Q1 and views the Apple (AAPL) Watch launch as another potential negative catalyst for shares. He cut his price target for the stock to $42 from $68. Shares of the navigation and information device maker closed Thursday down 58c to $46.49 after Goldman Sachs downgraded the stock Neutral from Buy.
