AATomahawk, WI 3/21/2013 (Expedated) – Moving, Moving, Moving, keep those stocks a moving, Rawhide! Sorry I got carried away with the volume movers today.

Shares of Oracle (ORCL) were moving fast today trading over 124 million shares today. The company’s stock went down in value almost 10% as well following a disappointing third-quarter new software revenue, which it blamed on poor sales execution

The stock was on track for its largest single-day loss since December 2011, when it also reported disappointing quarterly results. Credit Agricole reduced its rating on Oracle, the world’s No. 3 software maker, to “underperform” from “outperform” and cut its share target price to $35 from $38. Evercore Partners cut its rating to “equal-weight” from “overweight.”

Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO) traded twice its daily average today with over 65 million shares trading hands. One of the reasons for the movement was FBR & Co. lowered its rating on the stock, citing reduced demand for its components.

Cisco had gained 10 percent this year through yesterday as the Standard & Poor’s 00 Index rose 9.3 percent. Scott Thompson, an FBR analyst in New York, issued a report today saying; Demand for network switches and routers is weakening as innovations “blur the lines” between those components and servers. This caused the rating to change to underperform from market perform.
