XEROX TUMBLES AFTER WARNING: Shares of Xerox Corp. plunged more than 25 percent following the company's warning Monday that it will post a third-quarter loss. The warning -- the fourth in the past five quarters -- has analysts speculating that the copier company may be ripe for a takeover. However, the struggles of competitors such as Ikon Office Solutions and St. Petersburg's Danka Business Systems suggest some of Xerox's problems may be industrywide.

Xerox shares closed at $11.38, down $3.94.
