18:07 EDTAVAVAmerican Science & Engineering lower after guiding to Q2 net loss
Shares of American Science & Engineering (ASEI), a manufacturer of X-ray inspection and other detection products for homeland security, are sharply lower after disclosing that the company will record a net loss in the second quarter. WHAT'S NEW: AS&E is projecting a net loss for Q2 while the consensus estimate for Q2 EPS is 21c. The company said it has reduced its workforce by approximately 10% and has implemented additional targeted cost reductions to further reduce its operating expenses in response to the continued global volatility impacting its markets. "While our opportunity pipeline remains robust, we have reduced our expenses to manage through the quarter to quarter variability that has affected us and others in our industry. As we move forward, we will continue to execute on our strategic growth initiatives to help us leverage and capture the increased global opportunity pipeline for our expanded portfolio of product and service offerings," said AS&E CEO Chuck Dougherty. PRICE ACTION: Shares of American Science & Engineering are lower by almost 8% to $51.15 in after-hours trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other stocks in the homeland security space include: FLIR Systems (FLIR), I.D. Systems (IDSY), CACI International (CACI) and AeroVironment (AVAV).

09:00 EDTGNCGNC Holdings estimates cut 'well below' consensus at William Blair
William Blair lowered its estimates for GNC Holdings "well below" the current consensus after taking down its 2014 earnings estimate by 5c to $2.65 and 2015 estimate by 10c to $2.90. The firm finds it "tough to identify" any improvement in operating trends during Q3, and feels the departure of four key executives in the last three months suggests "deeper fundamental issues" for the company. William Blair lists large overlap in product assortment with Amazon (AMZN) and buy-one-get-one promotional activity continuing in Q3 as reasons for concern. The firm reiterates an Underperform rating on GNC and notes the stock is up nearly 20% since the Q2 release.
