Central Garden & Pet (CENT - Get Report), a Walnut Creek, Calif.-based marketer and producer of lawn and garden products as well as pet supplies, tumbled 36% to $4.44.

Sonic Solutions also forecast a first-quarter loss of 9 cents a share, below the Street's view of a 1-cent per-share profit. The stock recently slipped 14% to $6.64.

On the winning side, TGC Industries (TGE), out of Plano, Texas, which provides seismic data to oil and natural gas companies, climbed $1.14, or 16%, to $8.37.
