13:52 EDTJCIJohnson Controls technical notes before earnings news
There are two key levels to watch that may help determine where price will head following results. Since October 2013 the $45 area, with the notable exception of October of last year, has been support for share price. At $46.68 heading into news, a bearish report or outlook could easily see a retest of the $45 area and potentially a breakdown below it. Next supports below $45 are at $43.49, 4.79, and $40. The October 2014 and 52-week low is at $38.60. If the news is a bullish surprise, the $50 area would be the first test on the upside. Next would be resistance at $52.50. The 52-week high is at $54.52. It would take a decisive breakout above $55 to resolve the current sideways move which began in October 2013.

Shares of department store operator Macy's (M) are sharply higher in morning trading after Starboard Value CEO and CIO Jeff Smith revealed his firm has taken a stake in the company and believes its stock could be worth $125 per share.

Shares of Macy's, which Smith called his "best idea" for 2015, is up about 45 to $69.24 after the comments, while J.C. Penney (JCP), which is also a department store operator with real estate assets, is up 1.7% at $9.16. Another peer, Sears (SHLD), is down 2.8% at $23.17, but that is well off its session low of $22.66.
07:45 EDTSYTSenator urges Monsanto to reconsider inversion if Syngenta deal succeeds
U.S. Senator Dick Durbin announced that in a meeting with Monsanto (MON) CEO Hugh Grant, Durbin urged the company to keep its United States tax address if its intended acquisition of Syngenta (SYT) succeeds. “Like so many large companies in the U.S., Monsanto has prospered in large part due to U.S. taxpayer-funded programs and services... I urged Monsanto CEO High Grant to reconsider the company’s corporate inversion plans to move its tax address to Europe. I also made it very clear that I will do all I can in Congress to close the loophole that allows corporations to avoid their U.S. tax responsibility,” said Durbin.
