16:22 EDTCZROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street had a bit of a see-saw trading day, but ended the session in the red once again. The Nasdaq took the brunt of the losses, falling over 2%, while the Dow's slide erased its gains for the year. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the import price index fell 0.5% in September, versus expectations for a 0.7% decline. Oil slumped to a four-year low during the session, as brent crude touched $88.11 intra-day, its lowest level since December 2010. COMPANY NEWS: The semiconductor sector was weak across the board after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector has entered a correction. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it does business with over 80,000 customers and that it built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future. Microchip, which also pre-announced weaker than expected second quarter revenue, dropped $5.58, or 12.26%, to $39.96. Intel (INTC) fell $1.71, or 5.09%, to $31.91, Avago (AVGO) declined $9.24, or 11.46%, to $71.36, Texas Instruments (TXN) slipped $3.28, or 7.13%, to $42.74 and Micron (MU) dropped $2.71, or 8.86%, to $27.93. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rallied $6.48, or 35.76%, to $24.60 after the company announced last night that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, had agreed to cover the company's colorectal cancer and pre-cancer test through Medicare. Also higher was Dave & Buster (PLAY), which gained $1.28 to $17.28 after commencing trading on the Nasdaq following its initial public offering. Among the noteworthy losers was Procera Networks (PKT), which was downgraded by at least four research firms and plunged $2.85, or 33.33%, to $5.70 after the company warned its Q3 revenue will miss expectations. Also lower were shares of Caesars (CZR), which dropped $1.92, or 17.36%, to $9.14 after disclosing in a regulatory filing that its Chief Accounting Officer resigned to accept a position with another company. INDEXES: The Dow fell 115.15, or 0.69%, to 16,544.10, the Nasdaq plunged 102.10, or 2.33%, to 4,276.24, and the S&P 500 dropped 22.08, or 1.15%, to 1,906.13.

10:48 EDTGLUU, ZNGAGlu drops despite Benchmark optimism about Kardashian game
Research firm Benchmark Co. upgraded digital video game maker Glu Mobile (GLUU) to Buy from Hold, based on optimism about the company's upcoming third quarter earnings report. WHAT'S NEW: Glu may report higher than expected third quarter sales and earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization on October 29, Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey wrote in a note to investors today. The company may also raise its fourth quarter guidance, Hickey believes. Glu's results are being lifted by the success of the company's "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" game, the analyst believes. He has a $5.90 price target on the name. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Taking the opposite view on Glu Mobile in an article yesterday was a short-selling blog, TheStreetSweeper. The blog said it "wouldn't be surprised" if the company cut its Q4 guidance, as Kim Kardashian and other Glu games "are fading fast." Company insiders are "selling huge chinks" of the company's shares, added the blog. Northland Capital analyst Darren Aftahi yesterday countered by accusing TheStreetSweeper of "acting as a megaphone" for shorts in the name, trying to drive down the stock in a weak market, and producing an article that is "full of conjecture." The analyst said he thinks the company could beat Q3 revenue expectations by a large amount, potentially producing a "massive short squeeze." OTHERS TO WATCH: Other digital video game makers include Zynga (ZNGA) and King Digital (KING). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Glu dropped 4% to $4.56.

10:31 EDTGLUUGlu Mobile setting up for a 'massive' short squeeze, says Northland
Northland said StreetSweeper's article on Glue Mobile does not say anything new and is full of conjecture in his opinion. The analyst would not be surprised if Glu Mobile's Q3 revenues came in closer to $110M vs. consensus of $85M, with similar performance in Q4. Northland believes shares are setting up for a massive short squeeze with over 35% shares short when it reports at the end of October or early November.

11:53 EDTFSLR, SPWRGT issues company specific, solar sell-off unwarranted, says Northland
Northland said it believes GT Advanced's (GTAT) bankruptcy filing is company specific and related to its non-solar opportunities and that the sell-off in other solar industry stocks after this news is unwarranted. Publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE). The firm also confirmed that GT is a customer of Ultra Clean (UCTT) and that some of its growth potential with the GT may be muted near-term, but points out that the company required a full prepayment for its prior work with GT.
