Marathon Petroleum (MPC) -1.7% AH after saying it expects to report a "small" Q4 loss vs. $1.00 consensus EPS, as prices for refined petroleum products failed to keep up with increasing crude costs. Refiners have been hit hard by high crude prices; last week, Tesoro (TSO) also warned it would report a Q4 loss.
