12:51 EDTRKUSOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The day’s economic data, including retail sales figures, a report on import prices, and business inventories data, were generally in line with expectations.

The market is on the verge of ending the week lower, which would be its first weekly loss in the last seven.

However, an eBay spokesperson denied the speculation, telling Reuters that the company has held "no conversations" with Google about acquiring a stake. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was digital marketing services company Conversant (CNVR), which soared 30% after Alliance Data Systems (ADS) agreed to acquire it for about $2.3B in cash and stock. Following last night's announcement of the deal, some Conversant peers rose as well, as Criteo (CRTO) gained almost 5% and TubeMogul (TUBE) rose 1%, while Alliance Data gained over 2%.

11:21 EDTRKUSRuckus Wireless sinks after analysts issue downbeat notes
Shares of Ruckus Wireless (RKUS), which provides products that enable Wi-Fi connections, are falling after one analyst downgraded the shares and another initiated coverage of the stock with an Underweight rating. WHAT'S NEW: Buckingham analyst Rohit Chopra downgraded Ruckus to Neutral from Buy this morning. Noting that the stock has surged 38% since June, Chopra believes that there are no significant unknown catalysts that are likely to increase Ruckus' multiple or cause its results to exceed expectations within the next year. Investors should take profits in the stock at current levels, wrote Chopra, who raised his price target on the shares to $16 from $15. Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette initiated coverage of the stock with an Underweight rating last night. Ruckus has gained a significant share of the WiFi market due to its radio frequency technology which provides connectivity in difficult environments, Faucette stated. Ruckus' technology continues to be differentiated from its competitors' solutions, but its customers tend to have little need for advanced security or network management capabilities, the analyst believes. Consequently, they are unlikely to increase their investments in WiFi as much as the average WiFi provider, Faucette contended. Analysts' consensus estimates for the company's revenue growth in 2014-2016 are slightly too high, according to Faucette, who set a $13 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Ruckus dropped 5.4% to $14.31.
