17:56 EDTNVDAMicron plunges after Q3 results, guidance impacted by PC headwinds
Shares of PC related memory chip maker Micron Technology (MU) are plunging after reporting third quarter financial results and fourth quarter guidance that missed analyst expectations. WHAT'S NEW: After the close, Micron reported Q3 earnings per share of 54c on revenue of $3.85B, both shy of analyst estimates of 56c and $3.9B, respectively. Citing "near-term headwinds driven primarily by weakness in PC sector," Micron gave a fourth quarter revenue view of $3.45B-$3.7B which was significantly lower than analyst expectations of $4.16B. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On the company's earnings conference call, Micron said, consistent with prior expectations, "We are forecasting DRAM industry supply bit growth in the mid-20s in calendar 2015 and in the low-to-mid 20s in 2016." The company said it sees DRAM gross margins for Q4 down mid-single digits sequentially. Additionally, the chip maker said it sees Q4 DRAM bit growth flat to up low single digits. ANALYST TAKE: On June 22, Micron was downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. Goldman analyst Mark Delaney downgraded Micron Technology to Sell saying rising DRAM supply will lower selling prices and contract margins. Delaney expects DRAM prices to drop up to 30% over the next three quarters and cut his price target for shares to $19 from $27. On the same day, JP Morgan lowered its price target on Micron shares to $33 from $37. The firm also lowered its estimates for Micron citing lower than anticipated DRAM pricing in the past three months. The firm, however, kept an Overweight rating on Micron, saying improving demand in other segments like mobile and the company's decision to not hold inventory during Q3 should help offset the DRAM weakness. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Micron are lower by 11.5% in after- hours trading to $21.25. OTHER PC RELATED STOCKS: In after-hours trading, PC related chip makers are also lower, with Intel Corporation (INTC) down 0.9%, NVIDIA (NVDA) lower by 1.1%, and AMD (AMD) down fractionally. Others trading lower include Microsoft (MSFT), SanDisk (SNDK), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), and Seagate (STX).

14:40 EDTESIITT Educational responds to Rohit Chopra letter
Nicole Elam, vice president of government relations and external affairs for ITT Educational Services, issued the following statement in response to a letter from Rohit Chopra, former student loan ombudsman for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to investors dated June 24, 2015: "Putting aside the troubling fact that Mr. Rohit Chopra is attempting to impact investors of a publicly traded company with information he received while in an official capacity at a U.S. governmental agency, his letter is a perfect example of the myopic view pervading some in D.C. regarding taxpaying educational institutions. The fact that he would write such a letter to investors days after leaving the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau trumpeting mere allegations against the company demonstrates a personal bias against our institutions and an unwillingness to allow for due process to work, the cornerstone of the U.S. legal system. Allegations are not facts and we think our investors will not take action based on simple assertions from someone with an ideological axe to grind."
