Workforce to Be Downsized

Business isn't going as hoped at medical-device maker Accuray. The company forecast a big loss for fiscal 2013 and said that revenue will be no more than $330 million. That's well below the $406 million consensus number, and ARAY is down 24 percent before the bell on my tradeMONSTER platform.
