11:15 EDTNKENike technical comments before earnings news
The shares are trading close to life highs ahead of earnings, last at $105.47 against that high at $107.45. On strongly bullish news the stock would likely exceed that high by good measure, putting the $110 to $115 area into play as potential upside. If the news is a bearish disappointment, the first support level of significance is at the 50-day moving average at $94.08. A move down to that level would only be a test of support. It would take a move that broke the 50-day to turn the long-term trend to bearish.

20:00 EDTFULH.B. Fuller revises FY15 EPS view to $2.45, consensus $2.54
Revises FY15 revenue guidance to $2.1B, consensus $2.16B.
19:55 EDTFULH.B. Fuller reduces FY15 EPS guidance by about 10c
H.B. Fuller is updating its FY15 earnings guidance primarily to reflect an expected increase in its core tax rate. The strong earnings performance in its Americas Adhesives and Construction Products operating segments, combined with the delay in earnings improvement in its EIMEA operating segment, is shifting the mix of its consolidated pre-tax earnings to the United States where its effective tax rate is relatively high. The company now expects its full-year core tax rate to be about 34%, up 300 basis points from its previous estimate, reducing its expected adjusted diluted EPS by about 10c. H.B. Fuller's updated guidance also anticipates higher operating margins for the full year offset by lower revenue. The company's current target for full-year adjusted EBITDA is about $275M, largely in-line with its original guidance, with a full-year EBITDA margin of about 13% and second half EBITDA margin above 15%. H.B. Fuller's revised and updated adjusted diluted EPS estimate for FY15 is $2.45 with revenue of $2.1B.
