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.

16:19 EDTSODAOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and remained there for the entire session. A weak industrial production report out of Germany and the IMF's lowering of its global growth forecast filled the news void left by another relatively light day on the domestic economic calendar. The volume was heavy and the selling was broad based, with each of the major equity indexes losing more than 1.5%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTs report, showed job openings surged 230K to 4.835M in August, marking their highest level since January 2001. Consumer credit rose only $13.5B in August, missing expectations for an increase in credit of $20B. In Europe, German industrial production dropped 4% sequentially in August on an adjusted basis, which was a steeper slide than economists forecast and its biggest decline since January 2009. Also of note, the International Monetary Fund cut its global economic growth forecasts for the third time this year. The growth forecast for 2014 was trimmed to 3.3% from a July forecast of 3.4%, while the 2015 projection was lowered to 3.8% from 4.0% previously. COMPANY NEWS: AGCO (AGCO) fell $4.97, or 10.55%, to $42.13 after the company lowered its third quarter view and cut its fiscal year 2014 earnings per share outlook for a second time after previously lowering it in July. The stock, along with several others in the U.S. machinery industry, were downgraded today at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Merrill also downgraded Deere (DE) to Underperform from Neutral this morning, citing the collapse in corn and soybean pricing and the strengthening U.S. dollar, and its shares also declined $2.83, or 3.42%, to $80.01. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was GT Advanced (GTAT), which rebounded 41c, or 51.25%, to $1.21 following its sharp, 93% decline yesterday after its unexpected bankruptcy filing. Today's recovery, however, still leaves the stock far below the $11 per share level where it began yesterday's trading session. Also higher was CalAmp (CAMP) which rose $3.47, or 21.03%, to $19.97 and was upgraded to Outperform at Macquarie after the wireless technology solutions maker's Q2 report. Among the noteworthy losers was SodaStream (SODA), which sunk $6.05, or 21.94%, to $21.52 after the home beverage carbonation system maker warned that revenue for its third quarter will come in well below Wall Street estimates. Also lower were shares of The Container Store Group (TCS), which dropped $5.45, or 24.9%, to $16.44 after the company lowered its fiscal 2014 outlook. The decline sent the stock below the $18.00 level, where its initial public offering priced last November. INDEXES: The Dow dropped 272.52, or 1.6%, to 16,719.39, the Nasdaq fell 69.60, or 1.56%, to 4,385.20, and the S&P 500 declined 29.73, or 1.51%, to 1,935.09.

10:08 EDTSODASodaStream sinks after Q3 profit warning
Shares of SodaStream International (SODA) are sinking this morning after the company warned that revenue for the third quarter of 2014 will come in well below Wall Street estimates. SodaStream develops, manufactures and markets home beverage carbonation systems and related products. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, SodaStream reported preliminary Q3 revenue of $125M, significantly missing analysts' consensus estimate of about $154M. The company said it expects operating income of about $8.5M for the quarter. Chief Executive Officer Daniel Birnbaum cited an underperformance in the U.S. market as the primary driver of the quarterly shortfall, and said the results are an indication that the company must alter its course and improve its execution. Birnbaum said in a statement that the company is "very disappointed" by its recent performance, noting that it has "not succeeded in attracting new consumers to our home carbonation system at the rate we believe should be achieved." Birnbaum said the company has started a strategic shift towards health and wellness, mostly in the U.S., where he believes the message "will resonate more strongly" with customers. In addition, SodaStream is developing a growth plan, and more details are expected when Q3 results are reported later this month. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The carbonated beverage machine company has been the subject of buyout rumors for months. In July, Bloomberg reported that the company was in talks to go private for around $40 per share. In September, Israel's TheMarker said SodaStream was in talks to sell itself to a British investment fund for $840M, or $40 per share. SodaStream has also been rumored as an acquisition target for beverage makers SABMiller (SBMRY) and Diageo (DEO) or private equity group KKR (KKR), The Independent reported last month. In July, SodaStream cut its fiscal year 2014 revenue growth view to 5% from 15% and cut its FY14 net income expectations to a 5% decrease from a 3% increase. At that time, the company said it believed sales trends for sodamakers would remain challenging in the U.S. in the second half of the year. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, SodaStream shares dropped $5.72, or 21%, to $21.85.
