ChannelAdvisor Corporation (ECOM)

ChannelAdvisor is crashing and burning today, down 53.64% to $9.81. The software solution company saw its shares fall after cutting its fourth quarter revenue estimate. ChannelAdvisor expects quarterly revenue of $23.7 million for the quarter, compared to prior guidance of revenue in the range of $25.6-26.1 million.
