Blockbuster shares fell 31.51 percent, or 23 cents, to 50 cents a share on Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange.
The company's bonds fell sharply and were the most actively traded corporate bonds on Thursday, MarketAxess data showed.
Blockbuster's 9 percent notes due in 2012 fell nearly 30 cents on the dollar to 32 cents, yielding more than 68 percent, versus 61.875 cents on Wednesday, when they yielded 31.5 percent.
The sell-off followed Blockbuster's announcement on Wednesday that its fourth-quarter and fiscal 2009 earnings would be sharply lower than expected due to weak holiday and international sales.
It expects adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $195 million to $205 million for the year that ended on January 3, compared with its earlier forecast of $270 million to $290 million.
