Shares of solar products and services company SunPower (SPWRA) lost 14.6% to $17.66 after a Goldman Sachs analyst lowered his view on the stock to sell from neutral.

Information processing and software company DST Systems (DST) has received several buyout offers from private-equity firms , according to a Reuters report. DST's stock gained 13% to $54.51.

Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG) saw its stock slip 6% to $49.19 after the lawn and garden products company said it expects full-year earnings to fall short of Wall Street's expectations because of increased promotional activity and unfavorable weather conditions in the U.S.

The Energy Information Administration reported a surprise 3.4-million barrel increase to crude oil inventories in the week ended June 10. Analysts had been forecasting a decline of 1.9 million barrels, according to a Platts survey.

Late Tuesday, the American Petroleum Institute said crude oil supplies fell by 3.03 million barrels last week.

The July crude oil contract tumbled $4.19 to $95.18 a barrel. A stronger dollar didn't stop a rise in Gold prices. August delivery gained $5 at $1,531 an ounce.
