10:07 EDTVSI, AMZN, WAG, GNCGNC drops after William Blair cuts rating on growth concerns
Natural supplement retailer GNC (GNC) is falling after William Blair analyst Mark Miller downgraded the stock to Market Perform from Outperform in a note to investors earlier today. GNC's strong sales in the first half of 2012 increase the risk that the company's sales growth will decline in upcoming quarters, Miller believes. Meanwhile, Amazon.com (AMZN) is selling more of GNC's products at lower prices, creating additional competition for GNC. Since GNC doesn't sell its products to Amazon, the online retailer is likely receiving the supplements from GNC franchisees, Miller explains. Meanwhile, GNC is seeing increased competition from other brick and mortar retailers, including Vitamin Shoppe (VSI) and Walgreen (WAG), reports the analyst. In early trading, GNC dropped $1.95, or 5.43%, to $33.99.

06:16 EDTAMZNAmazon unveils 'Make an Offer' for customers to negotiate lower prices
Amazon.com has announced the "Make an Offer" experience that allows customers to negotiate even lower prices on thousands of items. Expanding on Amazonís traditional fixed price model, the new pricing feature allows customers to offer to buy items at even lower prices. If agreed upon, customers can then purchase the items at a savings from the listed price. To start, more than 150,000 items from sellers on Amazon are enabled with the "Make an Offer" experience across Sports and Entertainment Collectibles, Collectible Coins and Fine Art. The new feature will expand to hundreds of thousands of items from sellers in 2015. The "Make an Offer" feature is not an auction format. All negotiations are 1:1 and private between individual customers and sellers. A seller is able to accept a customerís offer at any time. The intention is to lower prices, and a customer negotiating with a seller will never pay more than the listed price.
