were among the


losers Friday, sliding 3% after the maker of car transmissions announced job cuts and lowered its 2006 earnings guidance.

The company said it will cut some 850 jobs, or 13% of its North American workforce, because of recent customer volume decreases and restructurings. Most of the job cuts will be completed by October, BorgWarner said.
