MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Anadigics (ANAD), up 17% following an upgrade to Buy at Needham, and Zhongpin (HOGS), up 15% after after agreeing to "go private" for a $13.50 per share. Among the noteworthy losers was Aeropostale (ARO), which slid almost 7% following a downgrade to Neutral at Janney Capital. Also lower were shares of DreamWorks (DWA), down over 5% after the stock was downgraded at Caris and Goldman said its estimates could be at risk due to the box office under-performance of "Rise of the Guardians"...
