14:01 EDTOSKOshkosh Defense segment aims to cut workforce by 250-300
Oshkosh announced that its Defense segment plans to reduce its workforce in Oshkosh by approximately 250-300 hourly positions in December. In addition, approximately 70 salaried positions will be eliminated with the majority being temporary employees, elimination of open positions and those retiring. With the reduction, Oshkosh will retain more than 1,800 Defense employees in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and key regional facilities around the world. The company said, "We continue to reshape our workforce as a result of significantly lower U.S. defense spending and dramatic reductions in military vehicle production. We have gone to great lengths to minimize and delay the impact of these changes on our Defense workforce. At the same time we are aggressively competing for future contracts including JLTV, MSVS and other international opportunities, which will serve as a catalyst for growth of the Defense business.
07:59 EDTCEQPCrestwood Equity Crestwood Midstream weakness overdone, says Wells Fargo
After Crestwood Equity Partners LP(CEQP) and Crestwood Midstream Partners LP(CMLP) underperformed their broader group over the past month, Wells Fargo thinks the underperformance was driven by Quicksilver Resource's (KWK) financial struggles, concerns regarding gas storage fundamentals as it impacts Tres Palacios, and a decline in crude prices driving reduced activity in the Bakken. The firm believes that these concerns are legitimate, but it does not view them as new and calls the weakness in the stocks overdone. It keeps a Market Perform rating on Crestwood Equity Partners and an Outperform rating on Crestwood Midstream Partners.

10:48 EDTKINGGlu drops despite Benchmark optimism about Kardashian game
Research firm Benchmark Co. upgraded digital video game maker Glu Mobile (GLUU) to Buy from Hold, based on optimism about the company's upcoming third quarter earnings report. WHAT'S NEW: Glu may report higher than expected third quarter sales and earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization on October 29, Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey wrote in a note to investors today. The company may also raise its fourth quarter guidance, Hickey believes. Glu's results are being lifted by the success of the company's "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" game, the analyst believes. He has a $5.90 price target on the name. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Taking the opposite view on Glu Mobile in an article yesterday was a short-selling blog, TheStreetSweeper. The blog said it "wouldn't be surprised" if the company cut its Q4 guidance, as Kim Kardashian and other Glu games "are fading fast." Company insiders are "selling huge chinks" of the company's shares, added the blog. Northland Capital analyst Darren Aftahi yesterday countered by accusing TheStreetSweeper of "acting as a megaphone" for shorts in the name, trying to drive down the stock in a weak market, and producing an article that is "full of conjecture." The analyst said he thinks the company could beat Q3 revenue expectations by a large amount, potentially producing a "massive short squeeze." OTHERS TO WATCH: Other digital video game makers include Zynga (ZNGA) and King Digital (KING). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Glu dropped 4% to $4.56.
