    The Winners:

  • EARNS  BEST BUY

  • Easier Heart Valves
    3) Edwards Lifesciences, down 27 percent. The maker of heart devices predicted disappointing results for the fourth quarter. Investors have been put off by weak expectations for sales of the company's flagship Sapien heart valves, which face new competition.
