( GEOS ) were paring a portion of their earlier losses, trading about 5% lower with less than an hour left in Monday's session after BWS Financial reduced the maker of devices to measure seismic activity to Sell from Hold, predicting its FY14 earnings could as much as 35% from prior-year levels.

BWS also set a $75 target price on the stock.

In a note to clients, analyst Hamed Khorsand said revenue and earnings at GEOS over the past year were largely the result of a one-time contract from Statoil ASA ( STO ). The contract will be fulfilled in the first half of 2014, Khorsand explained.

GEOS last traded at $86.59, down 5.3%, after sliding to an intra-day low of $82.21 this morning.
