In other energy news, Synergy Resources ( SYRG ) shares were down 3.4% at $12.01 after the oil-and-gas operator reported earnings for the quarter ended May 31, 2014 matched expectations, but revenue fell short of analysts' estimates despite a 108% increase due to a year-over-year improvement in production.

The company reported Q3 net income of $7.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, up 98% from $3.6 million or $0.06 per diluted share in the same year-ago period. Analysts polled by Capital IQ were expecting EPS of $0.09.
