MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Solazyme (SZYM), up about 11% after announcing it has reached commercial-scale output at a facility in Iowa, and AVG Technologies (AVG), up 9% after announcing a new Search and Distribution relationship with Yahoo! (YHOO). Among the noteworthy losers was Best Buy (BBY), which fell over 15% after its board extended the deadline for founder Richard Schulze to deliver a potential buy-out bid. Also lower were shares of Centene (CNC), down over 8% after the company cut its FY12 EPS guidance... INDICES: Near 12:30 pm ET, the Dow was down 4.05, or 0.03%, to 13,166.67; the Nasdaq was down 10.15, or 0.34%, to 2,982.01; and the S&P 500 was down 2.50, or 0.18%, to 1,416.95.
