Tuesday's Small-Cap Winners & Losers

O.I. Corp (OICO) sank on news that it will conduct an internal review of its historical stock-option grants. During the probe, the Texas-based maker of chemical-analysis products will halt its stock buyback program. President, Chairman and Chief Executive William Botts will be put on voluntary paid leave along with VP and Corporate Secretary Jane Smith. Four high-level employees and board members are to assume the vacated roles. O.I. also warned that it might be late with its year-end report if the probe uncovers "significant" issues. Shares were falling $1.02, or 9.2%, to $10.13.

Health care company Radiation Therapy Services (RTSX) cut its earnings guidance for the fourth quarter to 30 cents a share, down from November's estimated range of 36 cents to 38 cents. The new total includes several items, the Fort Myers, Fla., company says, without which income would have totaled 36 cents. The revenue forecast was revised to $76 million to $78 million, up from $74 million to $77 million previously. Analysts are calling for $76.9 million on the top line. Shares were down $2.97, or 9.1%, to $29.71.
