Decliners


Apple

Apple Inc. /zigman2/quotes/202934861/composite AAPL -1.82% shares fell about 4%. The company saw sales of its popular iPhone come in below investors’ expectations for the June quarter, and it said that sales were crimped by “rumors and speculation” about the next version of the device. See story: Piper Jaffray cuts Apple estimates.

International Game Technology /zigman2/quotes/202670793/composite IGT -3.53% shares fell 21%. Third-quarter earnings fell 46% despite higher revenue as the slot-machine maker suffered a sharp increase in expenses.

Lorillard fell 5% after the tobacco company came up shy of Wall Street profit estimates in its latest reported quarter.

Netflix Inc. /zigman2/quotes/202353025/composite NFLX -2.96% shares tumbled 24%. The company reported second-quarter earnings that surpassed analysts’ forecasts late Tuesday, but the shares declined due to a forecast for a coming loss and the possibility that it might not reach its targets for signing up new subscribers.

/zigman2/quotes/206118480/composite TRIP 25.43, +0.06, +0.24%

WellPoint Inc. shares shed 13%. The company reported second-quarter earnings that fell about 8% as litigation and acquisition costs heightened the impact from lower medical enrollments. The health-benefits provider also lowered its full-year earnings estimate again, to a range between $7.30 and $7.40 a share from its June forecast of at least $7.57 a share.
