BlackBerry Ltd. shares were up 3.5% in recent trade. The Canadian company said Friday it swung to a third-quarter loss of $4.4 billion, or $8.37 a share, from a year-ago profit of $9 million, or 2 cents a share. Adjusted losses widened to 67 cents a share from 47 cents a share and quarterly revenue fell to $1.2 billion from $2.7 billion, with both measures coming in worse than expected.

APC

Anadarko gets three downgrades after court decision, shares -11.5%

Anadarko Petroleum (APC) almost certainly will appeal yesterday's court ruling against it in the Tronox litigation: "We vehemently disagree with the judge's [decision]... We fully expect to pursue every avenue available to us through the appellate process to protect the interests of our stakeholders, once a final judgment including damages has been rendered."The severity of the ruling for APC will come down to damages: While the judge found that the trust is entitled to recover ~$14.17B, APC may be able to lower the figure by ~$9B for offsetting costs it may have incurred from the Tronox transaction.J.P. Morgan downgrades APC to Underweight and a $77 price target, while Citi and Global Hunter cut shares to Neutral from Buy; Credit Suisse views $65-$70 as a potential floor level valuation.Jefferies, maintaining a Buy rating and $111 price target, believes APC could pursue more aggressive dividend/buyback moves to instill shareholder confidence that the ruling will be found excessive.Shares -11.5% premarket.
