COMPANY NEWS: Darden Restaurants (DRI), the parent company of Olive Garden, Red Lobster and LongHorn Steakhouse, warned its profit for the current quarter and the year may fall well short of analyst expectations. The company, whose shares tumbled nearly 10% after the outlook announcement, blamed failed promotions and negative press on its tests to limit rising health care costs for its under performance...

Shares of Sina (SINA), Youku Tudou (YOKU) and Baidu (BIDU) were among those declining following the news... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Galena Biopharma (GALE), up almost 10% after signing a commercialization partnership for its NeuVax drug with Teva (TEVA), and Mindspeed Technologies (MSPD), up 7% after raising its Q1 revenue view. Among the noteworthy losers was Net 1 UEPS (UEPS), which plunged 56% after disclosing the DOJ and FBI are investigating the company for potential violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Also lower were shares of Geron (GERN), down 25% after it discontinued development of a treatment for brain cancer, announced job cuts and said its CFO is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 15.36, or 0.12%, to 12,980.96; the Nasdaq was down 11.77, or 0.39%, to 2,990.43; and the S&P 500 was down 1.88, or 0.13%, to 1,407.58.
