And so, as Teslas third-quarter earnings report was released, shares fell. And they fell further today, even after analysts said on Tuesday that the reaction to Teslas third-quarter earnings report was hasty and uncalled for.

The case against Outerwall is that the majority of its business is dominated by its Redbox DVD rental kiosks, and that DVD sales are on the decline with the convenience of streaming video taking over the market.
