16:42 EDTHLFJustice Department announces criminal charges against supplement maker USPlabs
The U.S. Department of Justice, along with partners at the Food and Drug Administration, Federal Trade Commission, Postal Inspection Service, and Internal Revenue Service, announced a "nationwide sweep" targeting more than 100 makers and marketers of dietary supplements. The agencies noted, "The actions discussed today resulted from a year-long effort, beginning in November 2014, to focus enforcement resources in an area of the dietary supplement market that is causing increasing concern among health officials nationwide. In each case, the department or one of its federal partners allege the sale of supplements that contain ingredients other than those listed on the product label or the sale of products that make health or disease treatment claims that are unsupported by adequate scientific evidence." Among the cases announced Tuesday is a criminal case charging USPlabs and several of its corporate officers with various counts associated with the unlawful sale of dietary supplements, obstruction of an FDA proceeding, and conspiracy to commit money laundering. The Department also filed in the past week five civil cases seeking injunctive relief against a number of businesses and individuals that allegedly sold supplements as disease cures or that were otherwise in violation of the law. The cases involve various entities, including Vibrant Life, Viruxo, Optimum Health, Bethel Nutritional, VivaCeuticals, and Regeneca, said the agency. Note that shares of GNC (GNC), Herbalife (HLF), Vitamin Shoppe (VSI), and Natural Health (NHTC) all slipped Tuesday following early reports of criminal charges in the dietary supplement space.

11:45 EDTCMGEl Pollo LoCo sinks to 52-week low after cutting FY15 same store sales guidance
Shares of quick-service restaurant operator El Pollo LoCo (LOCO) are plunging after the company cut its fiscal 2015 same-store sales outlook and narrowed its fiscal 2015 profit view. WHAT'S NEW: Thursday night after the close, El Pollo LoCo reported third quarter adjusted earnings per share of 18c, beating analysts' consensus estimates of 15c, and revenue of $88.9M, missing the consensus of $90.4M. For the quarter, system wide SSS increased 0.6%, company owned SSS were flat, franchise SSS rose 1.1%, and adjusted EBITDA increased 9.9% to $16.6M. Chief Executive Officer Steve Sather noted that Q3 results represented the company's 17th consecutive quarter of system-wide comparable restaurant sales growth as well as pro forma net income growth of over 40%. He added that the company's new restaurant pipeline was, "strong and growing stronger." GUIDANCE: Looking ahead, El Pollo LoCo cut its FY15 system-wide comparable restaurant sales growth view to approximately 1.7% from 3%. It also lowered its outlook for openings of new company-owned restaurants to 13-15 from 16, and openings of new franchised restaurants to 5 from 8. FY15 adjusted EBTIDA guidance was cut to $64M-$66M from $65M-$67M. Due to the revised assumptions, the company narrowed its FY15 pro forma diluted EPS view to 67c-69c from 67c-71c, compared to the consensus of 68c. ANALYST REACTION: Research firm Baird downgraded El Pollo Loco to Neutral from Outperform to reflect reduced visibility, uncertain comps outlook and possible downward bias to earnings if top-line trends do not improve. Baird lowered its price target to $12 from $18 on El Pollo Loco shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, El Pollo Loco fell $1.30, or about 11.25%, to $10.22 on nearly four times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $9.58. Over the past 12 months, the stock is down approximately 70%. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other quick-service restaurants include Fiesta Restaurant (FRGI), down 2.5%, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), down 2.7%, Del Taco (TACO), down 2.15%, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen (PLKI), down 1.3%, and Bojangles (BOJA), down fractionally.
