General Motors made news again as well by confirming that two of its engineers have been placed on paid leave as part of the company's ongoing ignition switch recall probe. The company also added ignition lock cylinders to its safety recall of 2.2 million vehicles in the U.S. and said it expects to take a $1.3B charge in the first quarter due to recall-related repairs... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was drugstore operator Rite Aid (RAD), which rose 54c, or 8.44%, to $6.94 after reporting earnings and revenue and that beat expectations and giving a revenue outlook for its fiscal 2015 that came in above estimates. Also higher following a better than expected earnings report was casual restaurant owner Ruby Tuesday (RT), which advanced 72c, or 12.08%, to $6.68. Among the noteworthy losers was data security solutions provider Imperva (IMPV), down $21.73, or 43.7%, to $28.00 which plunged 41% after the company slashed its first quarter profit and sales outlook.

08:57 EDTPANWImperva should be bought after negative preannouncement, says Pacific Crest
After Impreva preannounced lower than expected Q1 revenue, Pacific Crest blamed the miss on a lack of sales execution and lengthening sales cycles. However, the firm is still upbeat on Imperva's outlook, as it expects demand for security products to increase. Pacific Crest reduced its price target on Imperva to $48 from $62. It recommends buying other IT security names, including Palo Alto (PANW) and Proofpoint (PFPT), on weakness in the wake of Imperva's guidance. The firm keeps Outperform ratings on all the stocks named.
