Shares of IBM (IBM - Get Report) fell after being downgraded Monday by analysts at J.P. Morgan. The brokerage said the stock, which has run up about 10% since July, is vulnerable to competitive risks at the company's hardware and services sector and may now be adequately priced. Although J.P.

Shares of International DisplayWorks (IDWK) rose after the company announced a new supply agreement. Roseville, Calif.-based International DisplayWorks said it has begun shipments under the pact, in which it is providing monochrome and color displays to SanDisk (SNDK - Get Report) for use in MP3 players. The company projected revenue under the pact of more than $20 million over the next 12 months. Shares of International DisplayWorks recently added 36 cents, or 6%, to $6.36. (AMZN - Get Report) fell after the stock was cut to underweight from neutral at J.P. Morgan. The brokerage warned that stiff competition in the ecommerce space could force Amazon into more capital spending, and said that could eat into margins this year and next. J.P. Morgan also said Amazon's growth isn't matching the rest of the Internet commerce space. In recent trading, shares fell 97 cents, or 2%, to $46.90.

Mercury Interactive (MERQ) rose after the company announced an acquisition in the so-called "service-oriented architecture" sector of Web services software.
