Supervalu Inc. (SVU)

Supervalu is looking stale today, down 8.87% at $6.27. The food wholesaler saw its shares fall after a downgrade from Goldman Sachs. Analysts at the investment bank now rate Supervalu at "sell" and lowered its price target to $6. Goldman Sachs cited food stamp cuts and increased competition as reasons for the downgrade. Along with a lower price target, Goldman reduced its full year estimates for the company to account for second quarter earnings. Shares of Supervalu fell around $0.60 today but are still well above their 52-week low of $2.27.

JinkoSolar reported a profit of $0.72 per share, demolishing a year-earlier loss and beating analysts' estimates by $0.27. Sales jumped an astonishing 48% to $320.7 million, again crushing estimates by around $18 million.
