13:59 EDTEMCEMC technical notes ahead of earnings
The key feature on a long-term chart is a potential compound bearish head and shoulders pattern. Shares are directly on the neckline of that pattern ahead of earnings. A move below $24 would confirm that the pattern is active. Downside potential would be to the $16 area over time, presuming the pattern was not interrupted. If the news is a bullish surprise, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives are at $26.17, $27.73, and $29.04. A move above $27.50 that sustained for several months would void the head and shoulders pattern.

12:40 EDTTHORSt. Jude in talks to acquire Thoratec, Bloomberg reports
St. Jude Medical (STJ) is in talks to acquire Thoratec (THOR), Bloomberg reports, citing people familiar with the situation. Talks are ongoing and could still fall apart as no deal has been reached, Bloomberg adds. Thoratec shares spiked early in today's session, but a catalyst for the move was unclear before the Bloomberg report. Shares of the medical device maker focused on advanced heart failure patients are up $9.52 to $58.33 in midday trading. Its close competitor HeartWare (HTWR) is now up $5.53 to $84.70. Shares of St. Jude are up 4 to $76.61. Reference Link

10:20 EDTTHORCatalyst behind Thoratec spike higher unclear
The catalyst behind the spike higher in shares of Thoratec (THOR) is unclear to traders and investors. The medical device maker focused on advanced heart failure patients rose as high $62.05 in early trading and its shares remain up 11%, or $5.48, to $54.29. Some vague takeover chatter surfaced, with St. Jude Medical (STJ) as the speculated buyer, but buyout rumors are often the "go-to" reason when stocks spike. Often the moves on rumors are less substantial than Thoratec's spike today. The company's close competitor HeartWare (HTWR) is not seeing any unusual trading thus far today, falling 36c to $78.81 in early trading.
