Oil prices have moved lower as well, dipping 2% to fall below $48 a barrel. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose to 234,000 in the third week of August, compared to the consensus forecast for 238,000 first-time claims. Existing home sales declined 1.3% to a 5.44M home rate in July, which was worse than expected. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of HP Inc. (HPQ) have advanced about 4% after the company reported in-line earnings, revenue that beat estimates and raised the low end of its guidance... Two food producers, Hormel (HRL) and J.M. Smucker (SJM), are tanking after each of the suppliers of grocery store staples cut their full year outlook. J.M. Smucker blamed its revised guidance on lower than anticipated results in the first quarter and lower pricing for the remainder of the fiscal year, primarily attributed to U.S. coffee, while Hormel cited earnings pressure from higher input costs for key raw materials.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Teva (TEVA) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse by analyst Vamil Divan, saying that while Teva has dramatically reduced 2017 guidance, the core challenges they are facing should not fade anytime soon. The analyst pointed out that pricing pressure and increased competition in the U.S. generics business will remain, the appointment of a full-time CEO is still pending and the threat of generic competition to Copaxone 40mg still looms. 2. Lowe's (LOW) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital by analyst Wayne Hood based on the company's results and guidance which he said were "disappointing." The analyst expects the company's profitability to remain "challenged" going forward. 3. Dick's Sporting (DKS) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen, saying it had overestimated the company's ability to achieve its prior guidance and maintain its profitability. Cowen pointed to a number of headwinds for Dick's, including increasing digital competition and the negative side of industry cyclical trends. 4. J.M. Smucker (SJM) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 5. LaSalle Hotel (LHO) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Boenning & Scattergood by analyst Floris van Dijkum citing recent share outperformance and potential declining comparable EBITDA that could pressure future NAV.

Western Digital most strategic buyer of Flash Ventures, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri revisited the likelihood of Western Digital (WDC) acquiring the remaining roughly 50% share of Toshiba (TSOBF) Flash Ventures. He believes the deal would be accretive by 10-15% in 2018 and said they remain the most strategic of buyers for the division. Arcuri views Hynix and Micron (MU) as much less likely bidders due to antitrust review, while any deal with Broadcom (AVGO) would have to most likely be backed by fixed economics with Apple (AAPL) or related to Toshiba's discrete/system LSI assets in a Brocade-like (BRCD) deal. Arcuri reiterated his Outperform rating and $115 price target on Western Digital shares.
