12:28 EDTSTRAFor-profit education names fall after FTC sues DeVry over marketing
DeVry Education (DV) and its peers in the for-profit education space are falling after the Federal Trade Commission filed suit against the company, alleging that DeVry's advertisements "deceived" consumers about the likelihood of finding jobs in their chosen fields of study and earning more than graduates from other universities. In a related action, the Department of Education is also moving against the company for those same practices, requiring it to stop the allegedly deceptive advertisements and take steps to ensure it can verify the truthfulness of its post-graduation employment outcomes, including hiring an independent auditor and informing students of its "unsubstantiated" statistics. The Department's action comes after its investigation of DeVry found the postgraduation employment claims "have not been substantiated to the extent required by law." PRICE ACTION: Shares of DeVry crashed 13.5% to $20.54 following the news, while Apollo Education (APOL), ITT Educational (ESI) and Strayer Education (STRA) each slid over 2% and Bridgepoint (BPI) fell 1%.

05:42 EDTSTMSTMicroelectronics says to exit set-top box chip business
The company says, "Today we are announcing that we will discontinue the development of new platforms and standard products for set-top-box and home gateway. This difficult decision is consistent with our strategy to only participate in sustainable businesses and is due to the significant losses posted by our set-top box business over the past years in an increasingly challenging market." After an extensive review of external and internal options for the future of the company's set-top box business, ST will discontinue the development of new platforms and standard products for set-top-box and home gateway. The slower than expected market adoption of leading-edge products and increasing competition on low-end boxes, combined with the required high level of R&D investment, has led this business to generate significant losses in the course of the last years. As a result of this, the company announced a global workforce review, including:the redeployment of about 600 employees, currently associated with the set-top-box business, to support principally ST's growth ambitions in digital automotive and microcontrollers; a global workforce re-alignment that may affect approximately 1,400 employees worldwide, of which about 430 in France through a voluntary departure plan, about 670 in Asia and about 120 in the US. Deployment of the plan by country or site will be subject to applicable legislation and will depend on local negotiations. In 2016, the workforce re-alignment is anticipated to affect about 1,000 employees, out of which about 150 in France. Annualized savings are estimated at $170M upon completion and restructuring costs at about $170M.
